Attaining academic success should not only be the effort of the students. It should be a joint effort of the parents, teachers and the students. Student success should be a teacher’s number one main concern. To some students, success will be getting a good grade. To others, it might mean increasing involvement in class. As the teacher you can assist all of your students attain their full potential, regardless of the way they measure success.
Here are some tips on how you can assist your students to succeed;
Set High Expectations:
Cultivate the habit of setting high expectation for your students. Ensure the expectations are not high and won’t be realistic. Drive students to achieve higher standards and they will eventually get there and along the way, offer lots of commendation. Some may take more time than others, but all students want to be told, “You’re smart and you’re doing a good job.
Establish A Class Routine:
The best way to help young children behave at school is to create an effective and consistent schedule for them to follow. Without this type of structure, young children often end up misbehaving.
Vary Your Instruction:
When you use different teaching methods, you provide students with greater opportunity to learn. Every student has different strengths and weaknesses. Instead of just focusing on one method that only appeals to a single learning style, varying your teaching techniques allow you to cater your lessons to different learning styles. Students will be more successful if they are not bored.
Show Your Interest In Every Student:
This might seem obvious, but every year do your check concerning the students in the class. Are there any students you have written off? Are there students who are difficult to reach or who just don’t seem to care? Students can sense your feelings about them, so be very careful with your own beliefs.
Be Transparent and Ready to Help:
How to succeed in your class should be easy for all students to understand. Provide students with a syllabus at the beginning of the year that explains your grading policies. If you assign a complicated or subjective assignment such as an essay or a research paper, give students a copy of your rule-book beforehand.
As a teacher who has the best interest of the students at heart, the only thing you should be yearning for every academic year is the success of your students and how you can assist them.
