As a profession, teaching is different from law, medicine, accounting, and architecture. Teaching is relational, imaginative, intellectual, and moral in ways that other professions are not. To support their students' rich understandings of their subjects (and their own lives), teachers seek curricular connections to human life and culture. Successful teaching builds on how we make meaning in our lives.
