Direction (Q. 1 - 10) : Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions given below it.
"Personally I am always ready to learn. Although I do not always like being taught," said Sir Winston Churchill. This comes to my mind when I think of the impact of teachers on students. There are vast and unimaginable differences in teacher-student relationship today as compared to what it was fifty years ago.
Today, the teacher's profession seems to be meant only to teach and not to take any corrective measure or action in order to shape the minds or mould students. It is not the fault of the teachers as their hands are tied and their role is confined to teaching. Parents do not realise the importance of the role of a teacher. The days are changed for worse.
The word 'impact' has three connotations, viz effect, impulse and coercion. A good teacher can be a great analyst who can make students understand and study well. A teacher's intelligence helps a school achieve good results. He also fosters excellence among students.
The other connotation is impulse, which means force, inspiration and motivation. In the present world, the teacher is prohibited from using force. He can announce some incentives for those students who score high grades and prizes can be given. Thus, teachers can indirectly motivate students to perform better.
Compulsion/coercion refers to penal measures to impart education. They may create a violent impact. Penal measures had been effective half a century ago but now it has become out dated, as corporal punishment is banned.
