Some people say that teaching is a pure science that is easy to learn just like any other science, such as Math or Social Science. But I do not agree with them. For me, teaching is an art.
Why is it called art?
Immanuel Kant said that an art as :
“Art is a dream because formula formula can not make a reality.”
Behold, that teaching can not be equated with the formula of formula, which is obviously the result. In teaching, a teacher will find many changes of change that are not felt from day to day, or each class has its own dynamics. A theory of teaching can not be applied in different classes, teachers have to do a lot of improvisation when learning process takes place.
Occasionaly, teachers often have to combine several techniques and teaching methods to achieve the learning objectives.
In the process of teaching activities, we must be able to communicate well with students, with good communication then the convey of materials will also be more effective.
In teaching activities we are also demanded to be able to play a little drama that reflected on the right intonation.
And for the media, how students get interested in learning if the media that we use is flat, unattractive and boring. They would be quick to fall asleep and play in the classroom or the worst is to bother his friend. Therefore the teacher must also learn the science from other branches to make the class live.
And again, art will play an important role.
If a teacher remains insistent with single method he has learned, then the learning process will look unnatural and awkward.
Therefore teaching is an art.
Have a good day.
