There have been so many viewpoints brought forward by scholars and other researchers about teaching being an art or a craft. These viewpoints form a wide spectrum from some seeing teaching as purely art and teacher as artist to others seeing it as a combination of the two. Although some researchers see teaching as not a science but an art, a thorough investigation of the subject will reveal the fact that this perspective does not fit the reality. When one thinks of the fact that art originally started within craft, one would also realize that these two terms, art and craft, are tightly interconnected and rely upon each other for success. For the same reason, teaching incorporates both art and craft as its core components and benefits from them.
