TEACHING AND PHILOSPHY 2 Using the allegory of Plato’s cave, Plato’s search for universal truth led him past the material world to its origins Braley, Layman, & White, 2003, Pg. 23). Teaching students “In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth” (Genesis 1:1, King James Version) and “Ye [are] blessed of the Lord which made heaven and earth” (Psalms 115:15). For well over a thousand years, philosophy was dominated by idealism. Instructional Practice One way to teach students on truth is by understanding that absolute truth does exist. The country we live in today is debating on whether the absolute truth still exits or not. “Plato’s search for universal truths (often referred to as ideals, forms, or universals), and the ultimate reality from which everything in this world derives, led him past the material world to its origins” (Braley, Layman, & White, 2003, Pg. 23). Learners come to know truth by understanding that God is truth by His words. Jesus said, “Sanctify them through thy truth; thy word is truth” (John 17:17). Teaching these truths in a secular school can be somewhat a challenge as not all students are believers in any type of religion, or they may be believing in a god that is not the one true living God. There are many factors that influence human behavior. Education and religion should be included in these factors. I believe that students should be influenced by the Word of God and their teachers. As a teacher, I want my students to understand that they are led by the Spirit. “For as many are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God” (Romans 8:14). Teachers should also lead their students to be the best they can be. I want to implement in my classroom a warm, loving, and caring atmosphere. I want to be able to teach the way Christ taught, without prejudices and with equality to each of my students the way Jesus taught. The way Jesus taught was in different

TEACHING AND PHILOSPHY 2 ways. The most famous way was through story telling known as parables. He taught people to listen with their hearts, not just with their minds. He taught with love, passion, and honesty. Jesus also taught truth during his sermons, or lessons. “Righteous lips are the delight of the kings; and they love him that speaketh right” (Proverbs 16:13). Jesus did not waste time with jokes, water down gospels, teachings, or anything else” (Bittner, 2009). Teacher-Learner Relationships The role of the learner is to comply with rules and regulations that are posted in the classroom as well as throughout the school. Student should also obey with academic expectations. Even though not every student learns the same way, students are expected t doth their very best. Students are expected to show respect not only to their teacher, but to their peers, faculty, and anyone else they come I contact. This is expected to be carried out in the classroom, playground, or other places throughout the school. Students will be taught how to respect others
