The way in which the teaching and learning process should be done, whether it be in the classroom or outside of the classroom is a big issue in today’s society. Everyone has their own belief as to why the teaching and learning process should be done their way, and most if not all have given reason as to why this belief is indeed correct. After reading a few of these beliefs from theorists such as John Dewey, Socrates, Plato and Jean – Jacques Rousseau I also have my own belief of how the teaching and learning process should take place. Since teaching and learning is a process that takes place between the teacher and the student/s, it is my belief that the teaching and learning process should be one that is dependent on both parties. In essence my belief is that in order for teaching and learning to be done at the highest possible quality both parties (the teacher and the student/s) must work hand in hand. The student should not expect the teacher to carry all the way weight by himself/herself and in that same manner the teacher cannot expect the student/s to carry all the weight by themselves. Instead both parties should meet each other half way, the work load should be shared among them and by doing this they will ensure that when it comes to the teaching and learning process it is done at the highest possible level.
