Students will become more engaged in interaction through group work. Teachers also have enough time in observation rather than directing teaching (Royka, 2002). By listening to each other the children are embedded in a living language sphere; even if the speech is full of mistakes, they still absorb a lot of language features that can not be mechanically taught through drilling. That is why the teacher should assign roles to maintain a group cohesion in a particular context. Also, by working in a team and having a chance to observe classmates from the side, with the teacher guiding them from time to time, every student has a chance for the better understanding of himself, namely – his strengths and weaknesses.
Apart from that, the teacher is able to recognise the attention he is getting from the learners as the lesson unfolds which will assist him to emphasise on key concepts through gestures and facial expression for consolidation. It would be therefore a challenge for primary school teacher to teach without making use of interpersonal
Furthermore, make sure that students ' self-belief is enhanced and they must believe that they are able to learn and deal with failures in order to develop their confidence towards learning. Allowing students to enjoy learning by working with others will enhance their sense of competence because cooperation between the students among themselves is a basic aspect of the Reconstructivism philosophy. The most important thing that I must pay attention to is my relationship with the students because when students feel comfortable toward the teacher, they can be engaged easily in the
Conclusions By knowing the characteristics of effective English teacher based on the students’ perception, the English teachers are expected to follow and pay attention on those characteristics that can make them effective in teaching English. On the other hand, the English teachers are expected to avoid the characteristics that can categorize them into ineffective English teachers. Being an effective English teacher is expected by all teachers, but they have to put some efforts to reach it in order to conduct the teaching appropriately that the students can obtained the goal of their
My students feel comfortable coming to class and are not limited mid their thinking, knowing they are encouraged to contribute to class discussions and share their ideas. Students feel the lecturer must build atmospheres of respect, understand by listening, and check student comprehension. Understanding may be demonstrated by being sensitive to factors specific to Elementary school contexts, therefore with the collection of data, I plan to record the attitudes of students throughout a researcher’s journal, providing evidence of our responsive, collaborative class environment. There are improvements between class atmosphere when a responsive, collaborative environment stays maintained, but there has a need to provide more comprehensive evaluations of technologically driven school learning environments. Within the school classroom, technology communicates with both students and
In my opinion, this video about practical classroom management is very important, generally to each teacher, and especially the new ones, because it helps them to provide ways to identify and understand classroom management problems and at the same time give strategies and solutions to dealing with them. Moreover, it studies some cases like Ella and Mr. Jones, who can be in each classroom. I agree that classroom management is to motivate students and engage them instead of focusing on their misbehavior, because I believe that each child is a unique individual who needs an effective learning environment built on secure, loving, caring, and stimulating atmosphere, so I always care to create a safe and challenging environment in my classroom and
This means that if the teacher is not aware of students getting used to routines, they will get bored in the classroom and not get used to do the same plan and sessions. However, discipline can be achieved easily with the students and the most important things are procedures and routines. An example of a classroom procedure that they assume to become a routine is the students knowing specific rules in the class like if the students know what to do at the beginning of a period, and if they know how to get the teacher’s attention and many others. As to procedures, students should consider getting ready to work as soon as they enter the classroom, participate in discussions, getting classroom materials, and avoid interruptions. Teachers need to create a limited number of rules that are clear, specific, and stated in a positive manner.
At the early stages of education a teacher should involve body gestures and signs, illustrative examples to explain basic concepts and afterwards develop more complex ideas on this basis. It is also of utmost importance to practice common colloquial phrases such as greetings, questions, idioms until the pupils feel comfortable with the phrase as the ability to build a simple conversation encourages them and makes more prepared for real communication. Moreover, a teacher should implement the use of authentic resources, for instance bus schedules, menus and especially audio tapes and video clips, to enhance the comprehension of complex content concepts. Besides, the students become accustomed to authentic language and can practice with connected speech in spoken English in self-study environment. And the last but not the least point is to establish authority in class so that students try to exercise English all of the time and know that inappropriate conduct would be suppressed in a friendly but firm manner.
Furthermore, the concept of pair work and group work are very important but Authur and friends stress more on individual understanding and individual work. Students that participate in group work in language class can gain their self-esteem to speak with their peers, increase English talking time and increase their motivation to speak in a risk-free environment (Jack C, Richards and David Bohlke, 2011). Pair work and group work can provide sustained interaction for language practice. Thus, the students can practice to speak in English with their mate and after a certain time, students will gain their fluency in communicating and uttering
Due to this examination, many ESL teachers are expected to teach concepts which are on the test. An interesting point made by Ashworth was that if a student struggles with learning English in the classroom, they should not be removed from the class or held back but instead continue with their original class. A key component to properly learning English is developing a unique classroom culture that fosters learning the language (CITE). As a result, it is ideal to adapt lessons to the various learning styles of children as every child learns differently, some visual others through lectures (CITE).
