PROPHET MUHAMMAD (PBUH) AS A ROLE MODEL FOR RELIGIOUS TEACHERS
Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) is the example par excellence for his ummah, especially for religious teachers with his good example and noble personality. His behavior in all cases is the behavior that is not contrary with the Qur'an, in fact his behavior reflects the contents of the Qur'an such as his patient, sincere and forgiving character.
In education, Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) has provided many lessons especially for religious teachers which can be applied on students. Firstly, as religious teachers we must always be patient as was done by Prophet Muhammad when he was performing prayers and Uqbah bin Abi Muit threw waste on him where he did not get angry instead He continued His prayer. Therefore, accept the students behaviour in whatever manner they are. Secondly, teaching sincerely is very important for religious teachers in which we should not hope for any rewards, Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said, "Verily Allah will not accept charity unless the charity is exercised in good faith and done solely to please Allah.” Even Prophet Muhammad did not hope for any material rewards when delivering knowledge. Lastly, we must emulate the forgiving character of Prophet Muhammad where He was tested by a Jewish woman who tried to poison Him and He forgave her instead of having a grudge against the her. So as religious teachers, we have to forgive our students for whatever mistakes they make to guide them to seek Allah’s pleasure and Grace.
In conclusion, religious education would be pointless if the teachers themselves behave badly. Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) exemplary conduct is the one and only to emulate to help us perform our duties as religious teachers effectively in order to get Allah’s Blessings. (281 words)
...Muhammad Ali is a rolemodel for me because he led the nation of Islam with Malcolm X for African American equality .He also was a rolemodel because of his immense strength and footwork. Muhammad was also a great choice because of his giant struggle with Parkinson’s disease. He has been diagnosed at age 42. Ali hasn’t had a large impact on my life but he is definitely someone I look up to.Muhammad Ali was born Cassius Marcellus Clay Jr. on January 17, 1942.
He was born in Louisville, Kentucky. Cassius began boxing at age 12. One of the people he looked up to most was Joe Martin, a police officer. Cassius met Joe after one day his bike had been stolen and he wanted to report it. Martin told him that he better learn how to fight if he wanted his bike back. Clay began training with Martin at the Columbia gym six days a week. In 1996, Cassius stated his first reactions to Columbia gym, he said:
I ran downstairs, crying, but the sights and sounds and the smell of the boxing gym excited me so much that I almost forgot about the bike,'' Ali wrote. ''There were about 10 boxers in the gym, some hitting the speed bag, some in the ring, sparring, some jumping rope. I stood there, smelling the sweat and rubbing alcohol, and a feeling of awe came over me. One slim boy shadowboxing in the ring was throwing punches almost too fast for my eyes to follow. (Ali)

The ProphetMuhammad is the founder of Islam. He is known as the Messenger of God to people of the Islamic faith. Muhammad lived a rough life but he also changed people’s lives. His religion has had an effect on millions of people. There are no pictures of Muhammad’s face; he made a point that the religion was to not be about him, but about Allah.
In 570 C.E in Mecca, Arabia a baby boy, a descendant of Abraham named Muhammad, whose name means “highly praised”, was born. Muhammad’s father, Abdullah, died before he was born and his mother, Amina died when he was only six years old. After the death of his mom, he became an orphan. He was taken in by a woman named Halmiah, who became his foster mother. In 595 C.E., Muhammad was contacted by one of his wealthy widowed cousins, Khadijah, who needed him to sell some goods for her. Many of Muhammad’s cousins lived in Mecca, so it was not uncommon that Khadijah had contacted him. He was known for being a very good merchant. Muhammad and Khadijah met several times to discuss the selling of goods. Khadijah began to become interested in him on a personal level, even though she was fifteen years older than Muhammad. Khadijah asked Nufaysah (known as the matchmaker) to ask Muhammad if he was interested in marrying Khadijah. Muhammad and Khadijah were soon...

Bad RoleModel, Good Teacher
I was born and raised in San Diego, California. Being one of three kids of a Navy family, I was well disciplined and well behaved, as were my brothers. In 2004 we moved from California to Texas, going from perfect weather every day to unpredictable weather all the time. Not only was the physical aspect a shock, but all preconceptions of Texas were blown out of the water by reality. The hardest part of the whole ordeal was leaving my dad in California for a few years. He would visit when he could, but visits were few and far between. I began to notice that the distance away was putting a lot of stress not just on the family, but my parents’ marriage. My older brother, Kameron, and I would talk about it and figure out a possible solution to restoring their relationship. Kaelen, the youngest of us three, was still oblivious to everything happening. Kaelen was just in fourth grade, Kameron a freshman, and me a seventh grader. Days would come and pass without speaking to our dad, and now I began to notice that it wasn’t just our parent’s relationship that suffered, but mine and my brothers as well. Kameron began staying out later and being mysterious; something he had never been. Kameron became hostile towards me and Kaelen, he would tell us that “if you tell mom, I will make it worse next time”. I loved my brother always, but he knew how to make it...
...Characteristics of a teacherrolemodel in school:
Teacherrolemodels are more than just teachers, they are people who inspire and encourage students to strive for greatness, to learn to their fullest potential, and to see the best in their selves. Students admire and aspire to be like them, learn from them, and look to them for advice and guidance. Teacherrolemodels motivate, inspire, and form strong relationships with their students. By forging strong bonds with the students, teachers are able to affect all parts of the student’s lives, teaching them all the important life lessons that will help them succeed.
Characteristics of a teacherrolemodel out of school:
Teacherrolemodels do not stop being rolemodels out of the classroom. They make sure to live to the same educational and community values no matter where they are. They have to because they are held to higher standards than ordinary people. Teacherrolemodels also show a commitment to their community, giving their time and help to people in need.

...A better understanding of other people contributes to the development of moral values. We shall be both kinder and fairer in our treatment of others, if we understand them better. Understanding ourselves and understanding others are connected, since as human beings, we all have things in common.
Adapted from Anne Sheppard, “Aesthetics: An Introduction to the Philosophy of Art”
Do we need other people in order to understand ourselves? Plan and write an essay in which you develop your point of view on this issue. Support your position with reasoning and examples taken from your reading, studies, experience, or observations.
To understand ourselves is not an easy thing to do. From ancient times, the question of knowing ourselves has been the focus of many philosophers, such as Socrates and Buda. They argue that, even though you cannot arrive at perfect answers, you should keep asking yourself, “Who am I?” The lessons of the ancient philosophers have truly helped me to develop my moral values and know myself, through meditation and inner awareness. However, there are other ways to gain self-knowledge: one way is to ourselves by striving to understand others. Khaled Hosseini’s characters, Amir and Baba, in “the Kite Runner” provide mirrors for me. Also Walter Isaacson’s “Steve Jobs” – the authorized biography of Apple’s genius – allows me to see inside the façade of the public Steve Jobs, and gain some understanding of myself.
The relationship between Amir and his...
Effective RoleModels in Teachers
Great teachers have the ability to shape our lives. Some teachers come in our lives and out without a second thought. However, everyone has that one teacher that made a lasting impression on them and many had a direct hand in the path that that students decided to take. It was the one teacher that not only created a safe and caring environment but went the extra mile to be the effective rolemodel that was so memorable that you could never forget.
Many teachers today need to wear many different hats because of the society in which we live in. Teachers are playing parents, friends, nurse, and so many other roles. Creating a safe and caring environment for students is always first and foremost for teachers. In my life time as a student I have been blessed with the opportunity to have many teachers be effective rolemodels, moral models and ethical mentor. However, Mr. Moratta was probably the teacher that had the greatest effect on my life. Mr. Moratta was my ninth grade creative writing teacher. He came into my life when my whole world seemed to be falling apart. My parents had separated and my father walked out on his family. The last thing I cared about was...

There are 5 stages to the teaching Learning Cycle.
Quality assurance & evaluation
The learning cycle can start and finish anywhere on the cycle. There is no start and finish point.
Before the students start the course a lot of pre assessment work can be completed, this can take the form of application forms and / or a pre course interview. The student needs can be clearly identified to ensuring the correct course has been identified for the student. The pre-entry criteria on pre-enrolment can be checked to ensure the student is undertaking the correct level of course. At the interview stage notes are kept to ensure any support requirements that are needed are communicated to the relevant people e.g. epilepsy, diabetes.
The course could be offered at different times e.g. evenings and during the day’s to enable students to attend if they have other commitments. The college could offer support for the student in way of advice for childcare and finances. The student could also have physical problems accessing the college facilities and will need support to overcome these barriers. E.g. developing a PEEPS (Personal Emergency Evacuation Plan) for the...
...This article is about an essay on the important role of teacher’s in curing students indiscipline.
Today there is a general complaint against what is called 'student indiscipline'. Student indiscipline is largely a function in mathematical term. Unless teacher functions as a real Guru respected by the public and assured of a proper competence and a worthy status in the public eye the problem of indiscipline cannot be adequately dealt with.
"Respect is commanded and not demanded" is an old saying. Hence true leadership is the approach and the same is not to be found in the teacher. He does not command respect and affection which he used to during the past. During the past political stir, the student was dragged into the field, but there was nobody to lead him in the right direction. His teacher was neglected. It is a painful truth that the teacher was allowed to suffer a social and economic set back. Hence he could not but care more for his bread than to lead the students. The teacher has been crying for a reasonable payment and he has been promised in high philosophical vocabulary from high pupils. How can you expect from a frustrated teacher to discharge his job in a satisfactory manner?
The loss of personal contact between the teacher and the taught has also been one of the causes. Undue emphasis on examinations has turned the teacher into a...
