RANDTS will last a thousand years.

- Albert

Have you ever wonder about what qualities an educator should have?

Should they be caring towards their students? (but then, students might over rule the teacher)Maybe they should be stern while being considerate etc?

What about sarcasm? It has a psychological effect. If an educator is sarcastic and projects a thought towards a student, maybe for example, the student might not do well, that student might be motivated to work hard and proove the educator wrong. But then again, what if it backfires and the student decided that there isn't any hope now since the educator has felt so.

Of course, every educator has different techniques in teaching.

What methods should be used so that students can pay attention and understand the concept clearly? Are presentations by groups of students better than highlighting notes given by teachers/lecturers? What about note-taking while lessons are going on? Would you prefer to use learn about new things by having someone to read and repeat the contents of an entire textbook or giving a lecture spontaneously? In your opinion, which method, to you, prooves to be effective?

On something unrelated, I feel that writing essays is getting harder by the day. Usually, the idea would flow naturally and I would write what i think but now, there are general statements, thesis statements and supporting sentences which I have to identify and make sure that it is there or else, marks will be deducted.

It's 1.29am. I must have had the sudden crave for blogging. ;)

    My former Law lecturer was the best. He's the most sarcastic person in the world. He cracks **ahem** jokes too.

    Jokes aren't important. ability to impart ones knowledge onto others is the ideal of any teacher. You can be the smartest guy in the world but what does it matter if you can't help me understand the subject?

    [COMRADE] what if the teacher is not sarcastic as in he/she can crack jokes but instead he/she makes the students feel inane?
