The best teachers are those whose classes include a large amount of discussion between teacher and students.

Discuss the extent to which you agree or disagree etc..


---------

The statement that more the discussion among the teacher ans students better is the teacher will find relevance but there are some considerations which are crucial while making such statements.

Primarily, the statement fails to address that discussion is possible only if the student is familiar of the topic and hence capable of putting up a healthy question. At times the subject taught is so new to students that they cannot saya anything in favor or in critic of the topic.How can one expect an army cadet to question his instructor on the usae of heavy weapons.In such situations the capcbility of the teacher solely contributes to his image.

Secondarily, a teacher can never be tagged as best for any one of his attributes. It takes many qualities to be a good teacher. One not only needs patience and indepth knowledge of the subject but also the capcbility to explain the topic and confidence to face the class. All of these are equally important traits required in a teacher and lacking any of these can result in poor outcome of the training.

Furthermore teh clarity of answers to the counter questions equally contributes in judging a teacher.If teacher's response to the questions is not well received by the students then it will end up in discussion but that would not necessarily mean that the teacher is good. This may go against the teacher as well.

Some might argue that the discussion between the teacher and students intslef explains that student is understanding the topic well.Such people need to be reminded that teacher can also be at fault. What if techer is wrong and students are correcting him. In such cases teachers attitude in accepting the mistake is also important.

To summarize, the teachers, who play a pivotal role in society , can better the results by having healthy discussion but this cannot be a sole reason to guage a teacher's efficiency.

On the plus side, the essay seems to be organized in the way that the e-grader would appreciate. I don't think this essay wouldn't do too bad under scrutiny.

Just practice your grammar as beny suggested, and check out some of the AWA examples on this forum.

Keep up the practice and you'll be fine! Smile
