Being a Caring Teacher: The Implications for Instruction of Noddings’ Care Ethics
Teaching should not be simplified to just a method. A teacher’s role is more than passing on knowledge. Teaching is a human activity based on the relationship between teachers and students. The care ethics by Noddings stands for the reciprocal between one-caring and cared-for, which provides a way to examine the meaning of teaching. Start from caring, it is important to understand that teaching involves the open and diverse concepts from subjectivity to face the teacher-student relationship. Through the dialogues between self to objective world, self to others, or self to self help students to learn. The most important thing is teaching should be in line with ethics. The responsibility to help students be successful learners is a teacher’s first priority. A teacher should expect himself to be a caring teacher, and identify himself with the role of one-caring. A caring teacher goes along the caring teaching expertise, emphasizes curriculum integration and collaborative teaching, apply moral education methods, and make an effort for the school to establish the caring atmosphere.
