If you were a teacher, what subject would you like to teach?
I would have to say English Literature.
Geography, Microfinance & Love Of Corss, hahaha Thanks Genna
History! after all it is about were we came from and we can can learn so much from the mistakes and triumphs of our fore fathers/ mothers.
Yesterdays days news is History, todays News is makeing History and tomorows has yet to be explored..
Yes I would teach History and with great passion!
Great question and Thank you for asking!
Early American History, from 1740 through 1875, with special emphasis on the the Declaration of Independence, American Revolution, U.S Constitution, and the founding fathers.
I would enjoy the teaching of history....especially the history of America and the many perspectives that are there for discussion. It is a very important subject and the teachings should be detailed and accurate so that our young people can see their heritage and appreciate it. Too often today, I hear commentary citing how ugly and unfair we are as Americans and i see our young people quickly jump to that side. What a shame...that needs to be turned around. WB
I have taught reading and language arts before, and I loved it!
Reading. Everything else evolves from the ability to read and comprehend well.
if i was a teacher i would like to teach performance poetry! how to take your poetry off of the paper and perform it onstage!
I have been a teacher for 3 years to college students.
But I would love to teach arts (drawing,music,dance and the like) to pre-schoolers.It would be so much fun!
I was an instructor for drumline and taught primarily tenor drum and snare drum techniques and so on. Loved doing this.
If I was to teach any subject, these would be the ones...
I love writing and I remember in High School I had an amazing creative writing teacher who inspired me to actually continue my stories and to not be afraid to let others see what I write about
I am a huge lover of Ancient Egypt and other civilizations. (I'm also a believer of Atlantis: Although there isn't necessarily enough proof Atlantis existed so I wouldn't teach about them!!)
Creative writing or art. Being able to create art or interpret the world around you is very important and it can build confidence
if i was the teacher. I would teach math because i love math subject........
I would like to teach Unlikely Maths.
I honestly have no idea what that would entail, but I think I read about in a book at some point and the concept amuses and interests me.
Failing that, you can't go wrong with anything in English or Psychology.
Funny, question I am attending college to become a teacher, I love science, and writing so if I do become good at writing I would love to teach it!!!
If I were a teacher I would teach a special class. The title of the class would be The Art Of Inner-standing. This develops a person from the inside out not in the opposite direction. We have understanding, outstanding. Yet, Inner standing is generally overlooked.
I'd like to create either creative writing, English or history.
It's not so much that I would want to teach a give subject content but that I would want to teach generally through "precision teaching" or "direct instruction" Methods.
This science based approach can teach under-educated and behaviorally/emotionally higher needs kids more effectively than any other method. It can also take a home-school child from grade 0 to 12 with very high marks in about 2 years so they can get college scholar ships. Same with under served kids.
Yes I do have a hub on this teaching method that professional educators have swept under the rug for decades despite the fact that it is empirically proven to be the best available method of teaching ever developed, - period. Sorry I am very passionate about this topic!
There are so many wonderful answers here. I can relate to the English lit and creative writing choices. I was never good at math so I am so impressed by those of you here that would teach it. History is a great subject as well, as is special education. Actually, there are times when I wish I could take certain courses all over again. Karen, your choice of performance poetry is fascinating.
Biology! I like the way nature works. To me it's like a combination between science and art.
I would love to teach CREATIVITY.
Yes, I know it does not have any rules. I think we ruin children's imagination with our rules.
No, I don't have a program, curriculum or notes. Let it be a dream.
We have to teach children how to be themselves, how to believe in themselves, how to be in harmony with themselves and the world around them.
HIstory? I dislike history for the fact that it is a subject of creative writing. It has been rewritten for too many times to be funny.
What I find, no matter what country or what school, there is always some sort of damage, because the focus is always on technicalities, the knowledge that goes away.
What does not go away? Personality. "How to be who you are?"
i have been a teacher in Pakistan and love to teach mathematics, English, Urdu, Physics, Chemistry and Biology as well.
I wish I could teach high school students about the impacts of society on gender identity.
I would like to teach HS Health, Drawing, or Ceramics.
It would be fun to teach a foreign language, but I would have to become fluent in one first....
I would love to teach English, but I'd hate to teach the grammar- well more specifically punctuation. I love DOU. If I couldn't teach English, I would teach History, because that's pretty awesome too.
i'm an english teacher, but i'd love to teach history, psychology, or sociology as well.
