CLASSROOM IDEAS FOR TEACHERS

In classroom , there are going to be times where you become frustrated with the situation. Its important that you dont loose your temper in front of students and keep your cool. As a teacher it is important to have a level head when dealing with the students. When teachers get angry , they are not behaving like a mature one . This makes it hard to win the power struggle with your students.

BE DIFFERENT : Some students may unfortunately take a malicious pleasure in trying to make you mad. If you can feel indifferent and do not respond to their provocation , they will loose interest and not bother you anymore. SAY NOTHING : If you speak in anger , it will definitely aggravate the situation and quite likely have an effect on learning 8 environment

yourself from the emotion of anger and smile to diffuse the situations. Smiling can effectively resolve tense situations.

students., not for them , but for yourself and class. As forgiveness is the highest and most beautiful form of love. In return you will receive untold peace and happiness.

MANAGING THE ACTIVE CLASSROOM


To keep children engaged in learning along diverse pathways , we as teachers, need to manage the learning activities in the classroom. Managing active learning involves many different elements. When we strike a balance among self directed learning , peer mentoring , group work and direct instructions, it makes our jobs easier and it helps children learn along many pathways.

PREPARING : Prepare for each classroom activity by reviewing your teaching manual or outlining a lesson plan. GATHERING RESOURCES : Collect or create the resources that

are needed for the activity.

CONNECTING LEARNERS TO ACTIVITIES : Whether the


learning activity is the whole class discussion or projects pursued by groups. You can introduce it by addressing the class in direct instruction. Try to make the information or skills to be learned meaningful to the students.

CONNECTING LEARNERS TO EACH OTHER

Take advantage of the ways children can help each other learn in pairs and groups

11 11

GUIDING AND OBSERVING : When children are working


independently , on activities and projects ( whether in on their own , in pairs or groups) , move throughout the classroom, making yourself available for questions and guding learners in overcoming obstacles. Use this time also for assessment, to determine how well children are focussing and the ways that they are interacting.

FOCUSSING ON EQUITABLE PARTCIPATION

All of these methods and ideas help create opportunities for active learning. Be sure to guide the class toward equal participation by all learners so that girls are not dominated by boys.

CAN ANYBODY NAME ANY OTHER METHODS THAT YOU MIGHT USE FOR REDUCING STRESS, OR THAT YOU MIGHT USE, NOW THAT WE HAVE HAD THIS PRESENTATION HERE?

HERE ARE SOME OF MY SUGGESTIONS

41 41

Laughter Is the best medicine, you have

heard it said, and there is truth to that. It is very difficult indeed to remain stressed and tense when youre bursting with laughter. Scientifically speaking, laughter is very beneficial as it increases oxygen supply and relaxes muscles in the diaphragm and chest. What happens when you laugh? Your brain produces endorphins which are neurotransmitters of happiness. Laughing is also contagious. If you get a group of friends together and watch funny movies if one starts laughing, soon all the others join in. Laughter can even heal cancer not just stress.
