A teacher's philosophy of education is perhaps his/her most important guide as to how to plan for teaching. If the teacher believes the child is a receptacle to be filled like a bucket, by reading or listening, that will lead to a didactic kind of teaching. If the teacher believes the child constructs his or her own meanings from experience and social interaction, that will lead to an inquiry approach to teaching, one that is more hands-on than "telling." Philosophy of education makes all the difference in the world!
