Important MCQs (With Answers) CBSE Class 12 English Core (Term 1): CBSE Board Exam 2021-22
I. Why be a teacher? The short answer is easy
● to witness the diversity of growth in young people and their joy in learning
● to encourage lifelong learning — both for yourself and for others
● to experience the challenge of devising and doing interesting, exciting activities for the young
There is more to be said about the value of teaching. Consider, for instance, the “young people” referred to above. In one class, they could be six years olds; in another, they could be sixteen or even older. They could be rich, poor or somewhere in between. There are all sorts of possibilities. But whoever the particular students are, they will have potential as human beings — possibly not yet realised — that can contribute to society. A teacher’s job — in fact, a teacher’s privilege — is to help particular “young people” to realise their potential.
II. As a teacher, you will be able to lay the groundwork for lifelong learning. You will often work with students long enough to convey a crucial message: there is much in life to learn — more than any one teacher or school can provide in a lifetime.
Whatever you teach, its immensity can be a source of curiosity, wonder and excitement. Learning, when properly understood, is never-ending, though it often focuses on short-term, immediate concerns. As a teacher, you will have an advantage not shared by every member of society, the excuse not only to teach valuable knowledge and skills, but to point students beyond what they will be able to learn from you.
III. Whatever you teach, you will be able to feel the satisfaction of designing and orchestrating complex activities that communicate new ideas and skills effectively. The challenge is attractive to many teachers, because that is where they exercise judgment and “artistry” freely and frequently. Teaching will need you to know how to explain ideas clearly, to present new materials in a sensible sequence and at an appropriate pace, to point out connections between their new learning and their prior experiences.
IV. The complexity of classroom life guarantees that teaching never needs to get boring. Something new and exciting is bound to occur when you least expect it. A student shows an insight that you never expected to see — or fails to show one that you were sure he had. After teaching a particular learning objective several times, you realise that you understand it differently than the first time you taught it. The job never stays the same; it evolves continually. As long as you keep teaching, you will have a job with novelty.
