“The classroom isn’t a stage but it sure could be one. Lessons are scripts to be memorized, sit-inners could be the understudies of the stars, the walls are the wooden doors that open in the start and close at the end of an act, and grades are the roses thrown on the stage floor commencing a wonderful show.” Bravo!
Such analogy is inspired by the statement of Dr. Aurora Fe Bautista in the recently held Module Writing Workshop of the Teaching and Learning Resource Center. Serving as the resource speaker, she pronounced, “Being a teacher is like being a director. You don’t get to be the star. You don’t get to be in the center stage. You are only the guide to the whole show.”
