My Philosophy of Education

- My teaching philosophy is rooted in my goal to effectively teach all my students and instill in them a love of learning.

I strive to help them become life-long learners and to seize their own opportunities to gain knowledge. I am an enthusiastic educator who places a large emphasis on differentiation. Understanding that each child is unique and that students learn in different ways, I believe it is essential for educators to differentiate our lessons to better meet the needs of our students....   [tags: My Philosophy of Teaching 2014]

My Philosophy of Teaching

- Philosophy of Education My philosophy of education is based on Rousseau’s theory that children are "born good", John Lock’s theory of a blank slate and the philosophy of progressive education. As soon as we’re born our learning process begins. We have the natural instinct of the noble savage, and a clean slate ready to collect information from our environment. Progressive education recognizes the importance of the social environment and the core curriculum. It’s important for children to learn the general studies of language to communicate their ideas, and history, math and sciences to make cognitive decisions about economical and social issues....   [tags: Philosophy Education Teaching]

Walter Lippmann's The Public Philosophy

- Walter Lippmann's The Public Philosophy      Walter Lippmann begins his The Public Philosophy by expressing his concern for the state of the Western Liberal Democracies. The West, he writes, suffers from "a disorder from within." This disorder has its roots in the long peace between 1812 and 1914, and was further exascurbated by the great population increase of that era and the coinciding industrial revolution. The latter changed the nature of armed struggle, which in turn intensified the "democratic malady." The situation Lippmann describes is the "paralysis of governments," the inability of the state to make difficult and unpopular decisions....   [tags: The Public Philosophy]

Sartre 's Philosophy Of Existence

- One of Sartre’s philosophy is the idea of “existence precedes essence”. In order to understand what this proposal means, we need to define “existence” and “essence”. In my opinion, “existence” is the presence of things, the part that identifies us as who we are, while “essence” is the nature part, the blueprint, the description that we were born. Thus, the Sartre’s philosophy of “existence precedes essence”, in my interpretation, states that we, human first exist and then determine our essence by means of choices and actions....   [tags: Existentialism, Philosophy of life, Ontology]
