The Art of Teaching Science - Student Resources
This seems like an easy question but I believe that it changes constantly. Good science teaching is based in the methods and best practices that have been developed over the years. Also, as I have progressed I believe that I have become a more artful teacher in that it is not always the best move to follow the script and you have to follow your instincts to where your students take you. You have to be well versed in the best practices but at the same time have the confidence in yourself to allow changes of direction and then use the art of teaching to bring you back to the science that you are teaching. The science is first and the art takes you to where you need to be; they must work together dependent on the circumstances.
Is teaching a science or an art? - The Washington Post
I believe teaching itself is an art form in that teaching is a truly creative process. It eclipses mere instruction or explanation and inspires and enlightens a new generation. This inspiration goes far in developing young people who do dream and achieve. Teaching then is not simply current techniques but the challenging of a generation to achieve more than simply test scores but the creation of a better country and world.
