A good class requires you be more passionate and professional in teaching. However, it is not very easy for you to get enough experience within a short period of teaching. Here are some useful suggestions on teaching which will help you get some improvement. If you are new teachers, I think these guidelines will really help you make your classes more effective.
Find the Purpose of the Class
Before the class, you need to prepare everything which includes the purpose of this class and how to achieve it. Most of the times, we focus more on the goal of each class rather than the process of enjoying and learning which is essential for the students.
The core of the whole class should be the motivation of the students. You should think from the students’ perspective rather than the teachers so that you can make everything meets their needs and get a remarkable success.
Make a Detailed Plan and Record
A detailed teaching plan is essential to the class which contains the content, the order, the teaching approaches and the relevant materials. And the general time spent on each step will be included because this will make your class finished in time.
Remember to keep a record of each class which contains the ideas of the students, the problems and the good points and bad points of your teaching. You also need to write down the way to improve; as a result you will do better next time.
Make the Students Feel Ease in Class
A comfortable environment will make the students learn better. The teacher should keep the teaching at a reachable step for the students will give them less pressure and make them more comfortable.
If there is too much pressure, the students may just stay in the class rather than learning something. And you also need to make you look good in the class, if you lose control, the worry for the control of the class will be aroused among the students and they tend to have less expectation in learning.
In conclusion, all above are some important tips for teaching but not always the critical, because different teachers may have different ways to make the class better. And all of us including myself need to improve our skills. But I think that these guidelines will definitely help you make a better class.
