If all classes at Durham Academy had an idealistic teacher there would be no pain, choices, pressure or fear. If all teachers were ideal school would be a lot different. There would be no due date for projects, or homework assignments and lots of games. I would really enjoy having an ideal teacher!
We are reading The Giver in LA class. In The Giver, it is a perfect world. In The Giver, there would be perfect teachers. This is my perfect teacher. My teacher would be very nice, but if you misbehaved they would be strict. In class they would teach us lots of information, but it would be fun to learn. At the end of class, they would give us candy if we were all good and got thorough everything for that day. They wouldn’t give much homework, but the homework would require some thinking, not just facts. The homework would be fun, too. The teacher would check their email some time every night but not too late (like maybe 7:30 PM) because some people go to bed earlier than others and need help that night to get in the homework. The teacher would be helpful in class, too. Also, the teacher would allow you to bring your pet to class if it wasn’t disruptive to the class, but actually that wouldn’t be a very good idea. That is my ideal teacher.
For me, an ideal teacher would be a person who listens; a person who doesn’t think that they are superior to the students because of their age. A ideal teacher would be a person who understands kids, and helps them with their problems.
These days, teachers aren’t always open to suggestions. They have their lessons already in their head, and they don’t listen to new ideas. There will always be teachers like that. Then there are some teachers who are close, if not already ideal. They are open, listen to their students, and treat their students as equals; no matter if they are young or old, big or small, or the same religion or race. They treat their students as if they were fully fledged adults; with respect and kindness. That, is an ideal teacher.
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.
In LA class we are reading the book The Giver by Lois Lowry. The Giver is about an ideal society. My ideal teacher would be a teacher that’s nice but strict. Also, they would be a good teacher, but in class we would have fun while learning. They would teach us very well so we would learn a lot. Every so often the teacher would give us some candy if we do very well on something. Also, the teacher would have us write on paper with pens and pencils, because you learn it better if you write it. They would be nice and helpful. The teacher would not give you a lot of homework, but some homework so we can get better at what we are learning. That would be my ideal teacher.

In the book, The Giver, by Lois Lowry Jonas and his family unit live in a perfect and ideal community. Everything is the same and so perfect because the leaders committed to sameness. I think that the Ideal Teacher would be a great teacher by helping students when they need help. Not giving a ton of homework but just the right amount that would be needed. I don’t like it when teachers give tests or quizzes like every other three days or one every week, but sometimes it’s ok, so not that many quizzes would also be a great teacher! I like it when teachers explain things well like the activities or projects we do, because sometimes teachers don’t always give great explanations and it is kind of hard to complete the task we are given. These are my thoughts of an ideal teacher, what are yours?
In class we are reading The Giver. In this book their is an ideal society. I am going to describe an ideal teacher. The ideal teacher to me is a teacher who is nice but still teaches well. Also they should be funny, and give assignments but not overwhelm the students with work. They should be able to teach you the work and you should be able to learn the subject but also should be nice and have a sense of humor. In The Giver, the ideal teacher would probably be strict and would make people follow the rules all the time, because their community is all about being the same and following rules.
