The greatness of a teacher lies in respecting the child
I think the concept of Emerson's is similar to the concept of the present teaching scenorio which claims that learnimng is neither teacher centered nor chilld centered but learning centered in which learning may take place between teacher to student or student to student.
How can we apply this quotion by Emerson in the teaching learning process of English?
I think though it may sound paradoxical, it means teachers should take care of pupils' aspirations, needs and doubts to become great.
I hope I get some good answers which are not just opinion based but relevant to the latest teching methods.
