The need t o understand the i n t e r e s t s of c h i l d r e n a s a b a s i s f o r

Basic Ideas and Principles Concerning Teaching

By Maduewesi, Ebele N.

Many of us probably remember our early teachers and have
one impression or other of the111 because they have made
some impression on us. Now, faced with the vocation of
teaching, we might wonder how our teachers came to teach.
Did they really decide that teaching would be their life
calling? Or was it just 'one of those things' you cirift into
before you know what you are doing? At this stage, we
might also begin to wonder about the kind of people who
taught us. Were they bright or dull people? What were
their basic ideas about teaching? How were they trained?
Were their ideas about teaching the same as we have today?
What in fact is teaching both as an activity or series of activities
and as a profession?

Searching for the National Nugget-the Teachers of Teachers

By Maduewesi, Ebele N.

The key persous in the culture-moulding process are the
trainers of teachers. So says J.A. Lauwery' (1969). The National
Curriculum Conference (1969) noted that "the production of
knowledgeable, effective teachers depends on the teaching staff
since, the extent of pursuit of excellence in an institution depends
in a large measure upon the calibre and quality of its staff." No
doubt the quality of influence exerted by a teacher training
institution through staff, quality of instruction college tradition,
and the general atmosphere and tone on the teacher trainee lasts
through the trainet's subsequent professional career.
