    • Getting to know our students
    •  
      • Do you observe your students? When?
      • Do you think it’s important for a teacher to know certain things about his/ her students? Why?
      • How does knowing your students better may affect your teaching?
      • Read the article entitled: Children: How They Grow, Elementary School Children – Ages 9 to 12.
      • Highlight the characteristics that are common to your students
      • Write a summery of it on a piece of writing paper.
      • State how knowing this may affect your teaching. (Give Examples)
      • Try a notebook of incidents
      • Try adding important information about the group in your lesson plan
      • You may use a checklist of observable behavior
      • Positive feedback
      • Praise your students
      • Give emotional support
      • Care about their weaknesses and problems
      • Pygmalion effect
      • Refers to the phenomenon in which the greater the expectation placed upon people, the better they perform.
      • Robert Rosenthal and Lenore Jacobson (1968/1992) report and discuss the Pygmalion effect at length.
      • In their study, they showed that if teachers were led to expect enhanced performance from some children, then the children indeed show that enhancement.
      • The purpose of the experiment was to support the hypothesis that reality can be influenced by the expectations of others.
    •  
      • Do you remember a case in which you had a labeled student?
      • What was your attitude towards this student?
      • Do you think applying the Pygmalion effect with difficult students may help reach your goals? How can you do that?
      • Share your experience with other colleagues.
