Mamdouh's Philosophy of Education
I will teach students to think for themselves.
Students need to know that the world is not perfect and can be improved.
Students need to learn to interact with those who are different from themselves and understand that we are more alike than different.
Education is important because it guides students to think on their own.
I want to teach students to challenge their thinking and to show them that their way is not the only way.
This follows the perennialist philosophy because I would introduce students to topics but let them discuss it.
Students learn by interacting with the environment under the teacher's guidance.
Students will engage with different cultural practices.
I will invite guests, read stories, and watch videos all of which will have diverse ideas present.
I will know learning has taken place when I see the students asking questions about different practices and not judging their peers for doing things differently.
I will assess students by giving them an issue and have them look both sides and present on it.
I will observe students to see how engaged they are and change the method or material used for teaching the topic. This could be acting a topic rather than reading about it.
