Effective Approach to Classroom Management and Discipline

Sep 10, 2012 | Published by: Teacher Jean De Leon

Every teacher has its own style to manage the classroom especially during the opening of school. Thus in order to teach, you must be able to manage your students. No matter how much potential you have as a teacher, if you are unable to control the students in your classroom, little learning will take place. And classroom management is an integral part of teaching and techniques of managing students both can and must be acquired by the teacher.

Poor classroom management and discipline are widely considered the major education problem among the elementary and secondary teachers, even though the media has centered on school bussing, school financing, declining test scores, and student drop outs. Every year discipline or the lack of it, has been the number one school problem of a teacher. Read the rest of this entry »

Sep 8, 2012 | Published by: Teacher Victoria G. Manio

To make classroom activities more inspiring to our pupils, we teachers need to try something new or we need to explore new ways on how to make our pupils learn the day’s lesson. We should not stick with the old methods or familiar method in teaching to make teaching-learning more enjoyable.

The Art of Memorizing

Sep 7, 2012 | Published by: Teacher Emily M. Vargas

It is easy to remember easily the things that interest us. We remember best those that form sharp impression on our mind, and we form such impression only when we focus our attention consciously. The more we know about a subject, the easier it is to remember any new aspect of it. We are able to seize the fresh points, realize their bearing on the subject as a whole, and associate them with the knowledge we already possessed by mastering the points of difference.

The habit of forgetting cannot be cured in a day. We must learn to focus the attention and to form sharp impressions on what we see and hear. It does not matter which simple methods we adopt or whether we invent a method for ourselves. What important is that the memory trace must be consciously imprinted in our mind at the very moment when we are thinking. Memorize only when we need. Remember, A man with an exceptionally good memory does not cram his mind with facts that are best stored elsewhere; he keeps the precious space for essentials.

Gaining Respect from our Students

Sep 1, 2012 | Published by: Teacher Rebecca Jornal

I always asked myself why there are teachers who are not very impressive looking, yet, they gain the respect of their pupils as well as the community, on the other hand, there are very impressive looking teachers but were not given due respect. I think the answer might be-the style of leadership and the character of teachers inside and outside the class.

Teachers who are true to their words, those who choose to become an incredible leader in front of their class, those teachers who knows how to respect the rights of their pupils, this kind of teacher will easily gain the respect of their students. People will not follow or obey somebody by accident. They follow teachers whose leadership they learned to respect. Read the rest of this entry »

Bringing Back the Values of the Good Old Days

Aug 30, 2012 | Published by: Teacher Jane L. Ringor

We are experiencing today a state of moral corruption. This is evident in the kind of governance our state leadership is tucked in – a leadership that has caused and continues to cause a rift among the members of the populace. If we are to make an assessment, each person goes his own way, being torn apart by personal ideologies and personal advancement, empty of common interest. Gone are the days, when the flow of life was unbridled by confusion, by turmoil and economic dislocation. Where have all the values gone?

Sizing up the state of the nation’s values today, the trend has been going negative. Today we are rocked in the fabric of illicit acts ranging from hypocrisy, dishonesty, greed, and all other things vicious, bringing the country’s setup into a state of degradation, veering away from the positive values that were once the glories of the good old days. But how should these values return? Read the rest of this entry »

Being in the teaching profession and knowing that every child has an eagerness to learn, teachers must not be satisfied in doing his daily tasks in school but must be creative in teaching different subject areas and should consider the needs of their pupils. In our modern technological world, there is also a demand to explore the application of creativity.

Understanding the Schoolchild as a Learner

Aug 20, 2012 | Published by: Teacher Alma V. Signio

The child or the learner is the center of the educational process that’s why every elementary school teacher must understand her pupil’s need, her personality and the learning style suited to her learner. It is also necessary to understand how he develops and grows.

Teachers need to fully understand and must be aware that her role is not just to execute her lessons but above all to guide her pupils and to stimulate growth. Growth should be seen in the inculcation of values among the learners, values like love of God, love of neighbor, love of country, responsibility, self-reliance, kindness and others.
