Teaching Aptitude MCQs For Assistant Professor, UGC NET, CTET, TGT, PGT and all other Teacher’s Recruitment Exams.

The general meaning of teaching is—imparting education. “Teaching aptitude” means–an interest in imparting education. But the meanings of ‘teaching’ and ‘aptitude’ are, in fact, very vast. Teaching is an art. The arts are always dynamic in nature and growth oriented. Hence, teaching is also dynamically changing and growth oriented. In a broad sense, teaching is an incessant process that goes on throughout the life. It has three facets or elements—the teacher, student and subject. In the absence of any one of these elements, teaching work cannot be done. Besides, all these three elements have their own importance. Reduction of the importance of any one of these elements would obstruct the teaching process and teaching would not be effective.
