Thoughts on Teaching by A Teacher
CLICK HERE FOR A MS WORD DOWNLOAD
Everything you say, or do not say, do, or do not do, will illicit a reaction, either positive or negative in nature, from the class or individuals you are teaching.
Anything and everything that happens in the classroom, whether it is good or bad, is to your fault or credit as the teacher.
What the students are doing is more important than what you are doing.
Ninety percent of everything you will do in the classroom is management.
Make the remaining ten percent really count.
Proper discipline and correction of student behavior does not damage self esteem.
If you ignore a student's improper behavior, the student will continue the behavior until he gets your attention.
Give your attention the first time and save the student and yourself a lot of unnecessary effort.
When telling students what to do, be sure to tell them how to do it, where to do it, when to do it, and why to do it.
If a student is in trouble at school, he might as well be in trouble at home.
