A good teacher, in our minds,
means that giving us all knowledge he knows absolutely, supervising students
strictly, teaching students by holding their hands, assigning proper homework
to students and being kind enough to give students time to relieve pressure and so on. Of course, these are my previous ideas which show my
immaturity to a certain extent. But those ways catering to examination-oriented
education are necessary before stepping into university. With the age and
experience growing, my thoughts become mature gradually.
From the perspective of a college
student, it’s quite ridiculous that a college teacher still follow the teaching
patterns of middle school because of the freedom and open of university. In my
humble opinion, first of all, as a college teacher, the most basic is that
teachers should possess good professional quality and be proficient in their
teaching subjects, which means that they will not only explain the text
thoroughly, but also tell students more extracurricular knowledge on the topic
to broaden their horizons and make them throw light on the text deeply.
Meanwhile, teachers should mobilize the enthusiasm and initiation of students
to make the whole class lively and be good at asking questions to encourage
students to think on their own and foster their creativity, rather than let
them learn by rote. What’s more, in university---- an academic palace, teachers
should regard students as their friends to establish good relationship between
teachers and students, and create an equal platform for students to speak their
mind freely. This way of teaching benefits teachers as well as students.
To sum up, college is different
from middle school, so there is a great difference between them in teaching. Accordingly,
college teachers should hold different teaching methods towards college
students. Only this can make a good college teacher.
