Teaching Tips

Here are some quick teaching tips that may make your day and teaching experience a little easier.

Show your students right off the bat what you are made of. First impressions matter a lot. If you show up ready, willing, and able to teach, you will get more respect. You must show up organized and fluent in your subject and lesson plan. Plan for enough to last the whole period. If students think you are "on the ball," you could change some bad attitudes to good ones.

Treat all students the same way, all the time. Fairness is something students are on the look for.

Don't be afraid to ask students. Hand out surveys during the year to see what they like and don't like, and ask for suggestions. Students like being part of the mix. Give them at least an impression that you value their input.

Hold your anger in. You should never yell, scream, rant, or escalate things. The very second you do that, you will lose your students and may never get them back.

Don't be boring. Don't do the same dull routine every day. Mix up your teaching styles and activities.

Get your classroom management down. Do not waste time collecting work and taking attendance.

>>Using homework effectively.
