TEACHING IS THE ONE PROFESSION THAT MAKES ALL OTHER PROFESSIONS POSSIBLE.
Student Learning is our business.
What we teach matters but what they learn matters more.
What Works-Works--What doesn't Work-Doesn't Work
Working hard at things that don't work won't make them work.
If they don't learn the way you teach-Then teach the way they learn.
Three Critical Questions to ask Yourself about Teaching
1. What do I want them to learn?
2. How do I know if they have learned it?
3. What do we do if they haven't learned it?
RETEACH-But use different methodology
Einstein said: Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting to get different results.
We need to prepare students for their future-Not our past.
Classroom Management is the most important thing in your room.
Classroom rules: Respect
Students can remember these and almost all problems fall into these categories.
How do students learn:
10% What they read
20% What they hear
30% What they see
50% What they see and hear
70% What is discussed with others
80% What is experienced personally
90% What they teach someone else
How do you teach?
If knowledge creates problems-It is not through ignorance that we can solve them.
That is it in a nutshell if you agree or disagree with what is said above feel free to comment on it.
