Teachers are the heirs of Nabi Muhammad, to spread the knowledge after the loss of the prophet. Basically, in Islam, teachers need to tell the society about the knowledge, guide those who are lost, and help those who want to be back on the right track. And actually all Muslims are teachers, because it is our role to spread even the slightest knowledge to others.
•As an exemplars to the students. Imam Zeinul-abidin says, “The right of your instructor is dignifying him and committing to solemnity in their classes and good listening and attending. You should provide for your instructor with mental presence and conceptual attendance and heart retaining and sight propinquity. The way of all these is laxness of desires and confine of lusts. You must understand that you are the emissary of what you have been received to the ignorant you may meet. Then, you should convey properly and never breach the mission if you should perform.”
•Love their pupil and guard them against harm. Abu Abbas said, “The most respectful -for me- is my student who leaves all people to come to me. I protect him to the degree that I exert my efforts for preventing even the flies from reaching him.”
•Concern about the knowledge and leave out the useless matter. Shaqiq al-Belkhi asked his student, Hatem al-Asem about the questions he had learned. “How long have you been with me?” asked the teacher. “They have been thirty three years,” answered the student. “What have you learned all these years?” asked the teacher. “I have learnt eight questions,” replied the student. The teacher expressed his sorrow and said, “I have finished my years with you, but you have learnt eight things only!” “That is it,” expressed the student, “ I do not want to lie.” “Well,” said the teacher, “Let me hear.” “They are the fondness of the good deeds, shoving the caprices away, decency and god-fearing, befriending the right, antagonizing the devil, adhering to obedience, leaving the humiliation of seeking...
...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...

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...

“Improving the Quality of Education: Role of Teachers in Achieving Quality in Education
in South Asia”
(December 26-28, 2011)
Quality of education is a relative and dynamic term varying from contexts to
contexts and time to time. In a changing world driven by technological advancements,
quality defined yesterday may not be valid today or tomorrow. Therefore, it is essential to
discuss the concept and define and redefine quality of education with the passage of time.
Quality of education is desirable even in countries where all the children are enrolled in
schools for basic education because education has to allow all students to enhance their
potentials in cognitive, psychomotor and affective domains. Most of the policy makers
overlook qualitative aspects of education instead they focus on quantitative aspects of it.
Links between qualitative aspects of education and society are strong and so is important
teacher’s role in bridging the two in a way that students can play effective role in society.
Quality education includes but not limited to: healthy learners; healthy
environment; healthy content; healthy process; and healthy outcome. Since access to
education has been a major problem in SAARC Region, quality of education provided is
also emerging as a major challenge. High dropout rates...
...THE ROLE OF THE TEACHER
"The Teacher is like an oil lamp if its flame is steady and bright a hundred lamps can be lit by it, without in any way diminishing its brightness. For ensuring the brightness of the lamp, it is necessary that the wick be in good order and the oil supply be sufficient."
Certainly the role of the teacher cannot be written in mere words.
However, this writer can highlight some of the key responsibilities to which strategies, methods and planning can be impinged upon.
The following is a list of suggested activities which when presented may facilitate development during the student/teaching experience.
These activities are by far not complete in its research.
As such one may wish to modify them to make it fit in their situation.
I. Initial Activities
1. Handle classroom routines such as attendance, dismissal and perhaps lunch distribution.
2. Assume teacher's duties conduct assembly, clubs and other co-curricular activities
3. Check students' written work and keep necessary records, such as progress report, assignments and projects and mark them.
4. Keep students' in a healthy environment and thus keep them safe.
II. Organizational Activities
1. Keep a notebook or idea file; include minute fill-in ideas such as games, songs, stories, sources of information and materials, ideas for learning centers, bulletin boards, etc. (Inform O.J.T. of these)....
...ROLES, RESPONSIBILITIES AND PROFESSIONAL BOUNDARIES:
The main role of teacher is to teach the subject in a way that actively involves and engages the students during every session

...assessing and evaluating. (Gravells and Simpson 2008). The role, responsibilities and boundaries of the teacher in Further Education will be reviewed.
The role of the teacher In Further Education is to assess individual learning styles considering the learner’s previous experience and background. It is important to be aware of adult learners needs as stated by Knowles et al (2005) in the andragogical model of learning. Theteacher must then identify and use various teaching methods to ensure all learning styles are met and the sessions are kept interesting. Flemming (1987) categorised learning styles as visual, aural, reading and writing and kinaesthetic (VARK). It is important that teachers incorporate these methods of learning into the sessions. This means that the teacher must be aware of differential learning needs and be able to adapt and be flexible in order to cope with them. Boundaries may occur if the teacher does not identify any learning difficulties and therefore not assist the learner to obtain additional help to ensure the learning is achieved. Teaching sessions must have aims and objectives clearly outlined and applicable to the subject. Adult learners need to know why they have to learn a certain topic. (Knowles et al 2005).
A creative learning environment must be maintained by addressing learners’ basic needs such as comfort and safety and...
...Role of teacherRole of teacherTeachers play an important role in fostering the intellectual and social development of children during their formative years. The education that students acquire is key to determining the future of those students. Whether in elementary or high schools or in private or public schools, teachers provide the tools and the environment for their students to develop into responsible adults.
Teachers act as facilitators or coaches, using classroom presentations or individual instruction to help students learn and apply concepts in subjects. Teachers observe and evaluate a student's performance and potential. They are increasingly asked to use new assessment methods. For example, teachers may examine a portfolio of a student's artwork or writing in order to judge the student's overall progress.
Many teachers use a hands-on approach that utilizes props to help children understand abstract concepts, solve problems, and develop critical thinking skills. For example, they may teach the concepts of numbers or of addition and subtraction by playing board games.
