Lesson 3
SOCIETY AND YOU

The following are excerpts of a study on
Pre-service Elementary Teacher Training
conducted by Rosita L. Navarro, et al in
1994:

Teachers are perceived to be:

1. very important in a community.
2. respected in a community.
3. help in the community to some
extent

The community respondents
strongly agreed that teachers:
1. help develop the moral character
of the children.
2. are second parents.
3. are assets to the community

The community respondents agreed
with 12 beliefs and attitudes, as
follows:

The most intelligent child should
be encouraged to enter the
teaching profession.
2. Teacher sets moral standard of the
community.
3. Teachers make good parents.
4. Men should be encouraged to
enter the teaching profession.
1.

The community respondents agreed
with 12 beliefs and attitudes, as
follows:

The teaching profession is one of
the lowest paid.
6. Teachers should be paragons of
virtue.
7. Children obey and respect their
teachers.
8. Teachers play an active role in
disciplining children.
5.

The community respondents agreed
with 12 beliefs and attitudes, as
follows:

10. A teacher is a child’s model.
11. Child’s interest in studies
depends upon his/her teachers.
12. Parents entrust children’s
welfare to teachers.

They disagreed with this item:
“ Teachers may inflict physical
punishment on children.”

Activity 1
1. Which research finding is most
interesting
to you? Why?

“The most intelligent child
should be encouraged to enter
the teaching profession.”
 As experienced, we often heard
parents telling their smart kids to take
up other courses that will give them
more
financial stability like being a
lawyer, doctor, or engineer.

“Men should be encouraged to
enter the teaching profession.”
 Men who take up education are often
deemed to be effeminate.
Moreover,
teaching requires a lot of
patience,
something most men
agree not to have much.

2. With which findings do you agree?
disagree? Elaborate your answers.

a. Findings the group agrees with:
 Teachers are perceived to be
very important and respected in
a community and are of help in
the community to some extent.

and are assets to the community.

community
relationship
 be an agent of positive change
 respond to increasing range and

 continuously improve one’s ability a a

Activity 1.5

The truth is…times have changed. Long
gone are the days when a teacher’s
presence alone demanded respect –
from students as well as parents. Today,
in a society where good morals are on
the decline, while self-centeredness is
on the incline, we can’t afford to
educate students like our teachers once
did “back in the day.” We have to get
respect the hard way; we have to earn
it.
-Prof. Joe Martin
www.newteacheruniversity.com

How does a teacher earn the respect
of the people in the community?
 Have the integrity required in your
chosen field.
Develop character that is worthy of
emulation by others.

 Be sincere, honest, and maintain dignity
 Be responsible enough of your actions.

Activity 1.6

Changes in the Teaching
Profession in the Last 18 years

1. Teachers aren’t the lowest paid anymo
2.The development in the field of
communication led to the change in
opinion of teachers in terms of:
a. being paragons of virtue
b. their influence in the moral
upbringing
of a child
c. the role of teachers in the
community.

Activity 2

Article XI

THE TEACHER AS A PERSON
(Code of Ethics for Professional Teachers)

dignified personality which could serve as model
worthy of emulation by learners, peers, and others.
Section 4. A teacher shall always recognize the
Almighty God or Being as guide of his own

Activity 2C

Competencies we, pre-service
teachers, need to acquire now in
order to perform our future roles
effectively:

 Personally, we should be able to make
adjustments to ourselves to be
morally, physically, emotionally, and
spiritually
competent to face the
various demands of the profession.
 Professionally, we must continuously
seek
to enhance our skills to meet
the increasing demand of the
