How to Be Respectful?!

Treat others, as you want them to treat you. To earn respect you must first, give respect and give it to yourself too, as, if you don’t respect yourself, no one else will respect you. The stress of everyday life, we have forgotten morals & obligation of respecting others so that we are also respected in turn. If you can earn the respect of others, then it’s a life well lived.  Respect can never be forced as it comes straight from the heart. A person may respect another because of fear but that is not true respect.True respect only comes when you empathize with the other person, which will make him or her feel respected and so return the favor. Respect is the pillar that supports the bridge called relationship. To say ‘please’ and ‘thank you’ doesn’t mean that you are being respectful.

Be kind. Showing kindness towards others is the best way, A simple act of kindness can show your respect towards others.

Listening & showing interest in whatever is said.

Good manners are the essential quality to showing respect, as people get a sense of respect, when they interact with a well-mannered person. Good behavior automatically earns the respect of others.

Don’t stereotype people, Stereotyping makes, you come across as a narrow-minded person. It also shows your lack of respect for the person, you are stereotyping.

Understand other peoples, like and dislikes.

Don’t dictate or belittle anyone because of his or her background, religion, or social status. It is not only ill mannered, but also signals bad breeding.

You cannot respect anyone whom you mock, or tease etc.

Apologizing for your mistake, can show how much you respect the other person. When you apologize for a mistake or a hurt you caused, conveys your sincere regret.

When you respect someone, you must also respect his choice and free will. So, don’t pressurize anyone to do something which he or she is not willing to do. Giving priority to someone’s right to choose, its respect.

To show respect, value other people’s opinion. This does not mean blindly follow whatever they say. You can show your understanding of his or her opinion, and then present your reasons for agreement or disagreement.

We’ve all had those periods before… those times when we feel stuck in a rut. Times when we can’t see any progress happening in either our personal or our professional lives… and we’re not even sure what kind of progress we want. Times when it’s all too easy to just hide in your room, binge […]

Philosophy “Love of Wisdom”

ocen 1
Philosophy is derived from two Greek words. Philo means lOVE, sophy means WISDOM. Philosophy means “love of wisdom”. Conscious of a set of beliefs, or personal philosophy informs how we live, work, & interact with others. What we believe is directly reflected into teaching and learning processes. It is important to understand how philosophy and education are interrelated. In order to become the most effective teacher you can be, you must understand your own beliefs, while at the same time empathizing with others. Developing our own educational philosophy is a key part of our journey to teach.
Major branches of philosophy are Metaphysics, epistemology, Axiology and logic. Metaphysics considers questions about the physical universe, & the nature of reality. Epistemology examines how people come to learn what they know. Axiology is the study of fundamental principles or values. Logic pursues the organization of the reasoning process. Logic can be divided into two components; deductive reasoning which takes general principles and relates  them to a specific case; & inductive reasoning, which builds up an argument based on specific  examples.
Idealism can be divided into three categories, classical, religious, & modern. Classical idealism the philosophy of the Greeks Socrates & Plato, searches for an absolute truth. Religious Idealism tries to reconcile God & Humanity.Modern Idealism stemming from the Ideas of Descartes, links pereption & existence.
Realism, school of thought founded by Aristotle, believes the world of matter is separate from human perceptions. Modern Realist thought has led to the blank slate, notion of human capabilities.
Pragmatism believes that we should select ideas, actions, & consequences with the most desirable outcome, as well as learning from the previous experiences to achieve desirable consequence.
Major philosophy of education can be broken down into three main: teacher-centered philosophies, Student-centered philosophies & society-centered philosophies.  These include Essential-ism, Perennial-ism, Progressivism, social Reconstruction-ism, Existentialism, Behaviorism, Constructivism, Conservatism, & Humanism. Other Ideologies of educational philosophy include nationalism, American exceptionalism, ethno-nationalism, liberalism, conservatism, & Marxism.

It is important to identify your own philosophy of education in order to understand your own system of values & beliefs so that you are easily able to describe your teaching.
