The difference is, with a Traditional Licensure the teacher has to complete an approved teacher’s education program while with an Alternative Licensure they do not. Based on the discussion in Chapter 15, do you consider teaching to be a profession? Support your argument with specific examples from the chapter.: I consider teaching to be a profession based on the 8 characteristics that qualify something as a profession. Teaching is an essential service that is important and available to all of society. It relies on intellectual skills and a long periods of teacher training. Teachers also have some decision-making authority and regulate their own activities in the classroom. Teachers are required to accept personal responsibility over their students’ performance. They focus more on their jobs than on financial rewards, being that many can agree that teachers are not paid enough for all the other things they do besides teach. Lastly teachers are required to follow a standard while on the job and if they do not meet these standards there will be consequences. Using these 8 characteristics I would say that teaching is most definitely a profession.
