Teaching : It's All About Relationships
The educational relationship is much more than the simple transmission of subject matter. It is at the very heart of teaching. Supported by an abundance of research, the author advances that the quality of this relationship has a major impact on the emotional and cognitive development of students. Taking stock of the inherent limitations within the current context, he brings to light factors that can affect the establishment of this educational relationship. Then, he looks deeper into the relational history of teaching and students and lastly, makes a few suggestions for creating a climate favourable to commitment and learning.
