    teacher's role or teacher role?

    teacher's role or teacher role?
    I have seen lots of structures (possessive) like this. Are both of them correct?

    Re: teacher's role or teacher role?

    After 100 posts, you should know by now that we need to see a phrase in context to give a good answer.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    That seems a bit overly dramatic.

    There seems to be a glut of melodrama here recently.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.

    Re: teacher's role or teacher role?

    May I ask a question about this topic?
    I have just seen two sentences bellow:
    1. A teacher's role is to develop curiosity in the students and to teach them to think for themselves and feel the excitement of discovery.
    2. She adjusts her teacher role by directing students to listen to each other using comments such as " Did you hear what Philip said about the use of octaves in the glockenspiel? Philip will you repeat that for the class, please?".
    What is the difference between teacher's role and teacher role in above sentences?

    By both the asking and helping members.
    I'm not a teacher yet, but I am studying a Bachelor of Education with an English Literature major at Charles Sturt University, in NSW, Australia.

    I have before, and it did not end well. I only stated both sides are guilty of said behaviour, because they are.

    Perhaps you would care to elaborate in a PM to a moderator then.
