Teacher's educational skill as a factor in development of pupils' abilities

Educational skill is defined as a specific sensitivity to individual pedagogical requirements. This sensitivity enables the teacher to read high educational results in the majority of pupils during a fixed time. Some typical feature: distinguishing skillful teachers has been revealed, and the author's point of view on the structure of the educational skill is represented. The latter has two levels: reflexive and projective. Three sorts of sensitivity characteristic of the reflexive level have been found out: sensitivity for objects, for measure, and for participation. Five sorts of sensitivity characterize the projective level: gnostic, design, constructive, communicative, and organizational. Specific character of the educational skill is illustrated by descriptions of activity of talented teachers capable of producing proper developments in the abilities of their pupils.
