        A moral or ideological dimension is always encompassed in teaching perspective. Morally and ethically, teaching and learning activity by making use of certain ways is unsupportable, but it is educationally and ideologically desirable. Language teacher education does not only provide prospective teachers with language skills, but it must also give the teachers moral values. Collaboratively, both language skills and moral values can be provided by teacher educators. Unluckily, the teacher educators merely share them with the previous ones. Richards (1998) insists that language teaching should emphasize on the development of human values, growth in self awareness and in understanding of others, sensitivity to human feelings and emotions, active student involvement in learning, and in the way human learning takes place. This theoretical and experienced based paper explores and shares ideas of humanistic approach in language teacher education and building good character teachers. These ideas will be profoundly dug up from my own experience in teaching Literary Appreciation by collaborating reader response theory (Rosenblatt, 1978) and visual symbol response (Purves, et al., 1990) in order to fulfill the prospective teachers’ need in implementing their tasks in classrooms to enhance students language skills as well as to apply the contribution of humanistic approach.
