Teaching strategiesOne teaching strategy used is active learning. This is any approach thatgets its learner moving, or that is hands-on. This approach is usedoften in science. When you do labs would be an example of thisstrategy. Another strategy is the before, during, and after. It is whenyou explore the topic before actually doing the main event. Then duringthe activity you are recording information that is given throughout theactivity. The after is discussing what you just did or the activity. Anexample of this is when you discuss a topic and learn about it, then gowatch a movie and take notes during the movie, and after you discusswith the class what you just watched. Last, the simpleststrategy, Homework and Practice. We should all know what this is. It iswhen your teacher gives you a worksheet to do in glass or you play agame involving the unit you are working on(practice). Also when they giveyou a worksheet or set of problems to do at home (homework). This iswhat happens daily in my math class.
What makes a great teacherThis section is all from my opinion because to be honest everyone willhave there opinion on what makes a great teacher to them. A goodteacher would be someone who explains to me personally so I understandthe material. Another nice quality would be a teacher who demonstratesand shows me how to do it. A teacher who has a sense of humour andwill make jokes to lighten up the mood. Someone who is entergetic andcheerful and never puts anyone down. A person who open to others ideasand opinions. Those are extremely important to me but the mostimportant quality would have to be someone who inspires me to dobetter, be a better person, and reach my goals.
To sum it upIf you haven’t notice I would like to become a teacher. Learning about thistopic made realize what I’m in for.So, wish me luck on my journey. I willhave to work hard for goodgrades, study a lot and be the teacherI want to have for my own students.
