In language arts class we are currently reading The Giver. In this book, the setting is in an ideal community where everything is perfect in the eyes of the people who live there. An ideal teacher in the ideal community would treat kids nicely, explain directions thoroughly and be patient. Some things that an ideal teacher shouldn’t do are: don’t just give worksheet after worksheet and project after project, this just makes students very tired out. Instead of giving thousands of worksheets and just handing them in, take a while and discuss them. Ideal teachers should also incorporate fun projects and not make them due in a very short period of time.
