What makes a great teacher?


In technology we are starting a new unit and the unit is what makes a great teacher. So as you can imagine I am going to explain what makes a good teacher and why. First of all I think what makes a good teacher is humor, wise knowledge of time, a schedule, and lastly a huge amount of knowledge for what they teach. And the reason why is because 1. Without humor people will think you are boring and disregard you 2. Without a wise knowledge of time the lesson may end before you finish explaining something 3. Without a schedule you will not know who to teach and when 4. And of course without knowledge for what they teach they can’t teach it. I think this best fits with the AOI community and service because teachers teach and that is service.

Why do we tell myths?

Do you know the story of Medusa? Well… Maybe I am getting ahead of myself. The Story of Medusa is not a story but it is a myth. Now you may be thinking “Well whats the difference?” Well the difference is that a story is something that is true or at least semi-true. A myth is a belief or idea that is either not proven or untrue. And since the myth of Medusa is not proven (At least not yet) it is a myth.


As for why we tell myths personally I think the most likely ideas lessons and morals because well… Think about it. The myth of Medusa as a moral/lesson (Controlling jealousy). Religion because some myths are about creation myths such as myths that make things like earth or a place. Explanations because some people may use myths to fill gaps in history. Speculation which is pretty common for many things myths included. And finally for entertainment.


Now lets look at the myth of Medusa well basically its about love and betrayal so what if the creator of the myth of Medusa wanted to raise awareness about love ad betrayal so he spreads the word and nobody listens to him so he think about it and he thinks about it and he thinks about it and finally he says “Hmmm maybe I should create a myth to raise awareness about love and betrayal and everybody listens and his plan is a big success. Maybe this is what the creator of the myth of medusa was thinking.

To conclude I think that the most important reason that people tell myths is so that they can teach lessons and morals because if you think about it almost every story has some kind of problem explained and solved by the deities in the myth. And if myths are like I said before unproven or untrue then that means someone made all those myths intensionally with lessons and morals.


Thank you for reading!




Investigate Reflection

Through the investigate stage I learned how to: I learned how to make an effective and good tutorial and I learned how to do a variety of non tech related things. With this information I can make a tutorial on a variety of things while using humor and time wise plans. Here is a link to my favorite tutorial blog post. Also at the bottom is my tutorial research.

I also looked at 2 peoples blog posts here are there blogs: Ryu’s blogRei,s blog. For Ryu’s blog post I learned how to throw a curveball in baseball. And for Rei’s blog post I learned how to play the super Mario song on guitar.

I made a tutorial in Technology and along with that I have looked up tutorials and today I will compare the two to see how I can make a better tutorial. First of all I think I should add more comedy and funny things to make the viewers even more interested. and I should also learn how to edit videos in an effective way. The things I need to learn to make a great tutorial are to learn how to edit in such a way so that it looks professional and to think of how to make the tutorial funny.


here are the three.
