What personal qualities are desirable in a teacher?I think the following would be generally accepted.

Firstly,the teacher's personality should be lively and attractive. This does not rule out people who are plain­looking,or even ugly,because many such people have great personal charm. 1..

Secondly,it is not merely desirable but essential for a teacher to have a capacity for sympathy,a capacity to understand the minds and feelings of children. 2.—not of what is wrong,but of the weaknesses and immaturity of children,which cause them to make mistakes.

Thirdly,I hold it essential for a teacher to be both intellectually and morally honest. This means that he will be aware of his intellectual strengths and limitations,and will have thought about and decided upon the moral principles by which his life shall be guided. 3.. That is part of the technique of teaching,which demands that every now and then a teacher should be able to put on an act—to enliven(使生动)a lesson,correct a fault,or award praise.

A teacher must be capable of infinite patience. 4.,for we are none of us born like that.

Finally,I think a teacher should have the kind of mind which always wants to go on learning. 5.;there is always something more to learn about. There are three principal objects of study:the subjects which the teacher is teaching;the methods by which the subjects can best be taught to the particular pupils in the classes he is teaching;most importantly,the children,young people,or adults to whom the subjects are to be taught.

A.This,I may say,is largely a matter of self­discipline and self­training

B.Closely related to this is the capacity to be tolerant

C. Teaching is a job at which one will never be perfect

D.Children,especially young children,live in a world that is rather larger than life

E.There is no contradiction (自相矛盾)in my going on to say that a teacher should be a bit of an actor

F.But it does rule out such types as the over­excitable,sad,cold,and frustrated

G.There are two fundamental principles of British education today


As we all know, it was Thomas Jefferson who wrote the Declaration of the Independence. He wrote it in two weeks, and after a few changes, it was accepted by the Congress. As a result, he became famous.

Born in Virginia, Thomas Jefferson, a brilliant student at school and almost talented lawyer later, was much interested in politics.

Jefferson was elected Governor of Virginia in 1779, and he was sent to France as the representative of the American government in 1784. Sixteen years later, at the age of 57, he was elected president after Washington and Adams.

Far from a handsome man, he was tall with long arms and big hands. Jefferson, who was an amusing talker in conversation but a poor speaker, was generally good-natured.

Jefferson was regarded as a defender of freedom on America. As a president, he protected the right of free speech. Interestingly enough, in his eight years as President, Jefferson never vetoed a bill which Congress had passed. He did a lot in organizing the new University of Virginia.

Thomas Jefferson died on July the fourth, 1826, the 50th anniversary of American Independence.

In 1933 an unknown American called Clarence Nash went to see the film-maker Walter Disney. He had an unusual voice and he wanted to work in Disney’s cartoon film for children. When Walter Disney heard Nash’s voice, he said, “Stop! That’s our duck!”

The duck was the now-famous Donald Duck, who first appeared in 1934 in the film, The Wise Little Hen. Donald lived in an old houseboat and worn his sailor jacket and hat. Later that year he became a star after an eight minute Mickey Mouse film. The cinema audiences liked him because he was lazy and greedy, and because he lost his temper very easily. And they loved his voice when he became angry with Mickey’s eight nephews. Soon Donald was more popular than Mickey Mouse himself, probably because he wasn’t a goody-goody, like Mickey.
