Nel Noddings wrote an article about caring in the pedagogical realm. The article covers: caring relations and encounters in education, why is the relational view difficult for many educators?, and caring relations as the foundation for pedagogical activity.
Caring relations and encounters in education is a sort of intro to the idea of the article. It outlines how teachers are perceived and how students respond to teachers. The possible hurdles of what might prevent a genuine caring relationship to occur are covered.
Why is the relational view difficult for many educators?, is the in depth look at why some caring relationships can fail. She brings up John Dewey an early pioneer in the education field. The fact that every student needs different things to thrive is covered. It is important to think of what is required to facilitate a caring-as-relation type of relationship versus caring because it is required.
Caring relations as the foundation for pedagogical activity is the part of the article where caring is put into the pedagogical sense for teachers. Learning about the interests of the students is a point in this section. Making connection of the interests of the students and the material of the class is covered.
I believe that the most important section of “Caring relations and encounters in education” is about actually caring. Students hear nonstop about how their teachers do actually care about them. It is the type of thing that goes in one ear and out the other. There needs to be an actual connection forged between the teacher and the student for that student to feel like the teacher genuinely cares. It is the little things such as noticing an interest of music or sport team that a teacher can comment on to forge the beginning of a caring relationship. When students can have a relaxed conversation about something they enjoy, they begin to feel more comfortable with the teacher. Comfort level is essential to this relationship. If a student in uncomfortable then they will not be interested in an engaging/caring relationship.
