Only a combination of both subject-matters knowledge and an understanding of the nature of effective teaching itself can implement a solid foundation for effectiveness. There has been much debate among teacher educators has to how teacher education can best foster effective teaching. Effective teaching is essentially on pins and needles with how a teacher can successfully bring about the desired pupil learning by some educational activity. The goals of effective teaching may emphasize cognitive (intellectual) expressions of learning or affective (social, emotional and attitudinal) expressions of learning for short term or long term goals. Education is a light that shows the society the right direction to surge.
Education is the first step for the development of societies and it has an important role in humans ' social life. There are a lot of skills, techniques and practices that may help the teacher to be effective. From my point of view, allowing an environment in order to enable the students to learn in the classroom by using their different abilities is the main source of being an effective teacher. Teachers must not stop learning and searching for new methods and ways of teaching, but unfortunately teachers are becoming less qualified and powerless when it comes to giving good and effective education. They are unable to convey the messages they are supposed to give.
It is very necessary on the part of the teacher to perform effectively in order to bring out the desired outcomes of the learners and this requires effective and appropriate use of teaching skills in classroom. Teachers are asked not only to present information, but to help students grow in creativity, curiosity, social adjustment, problem solving, and responsibility; teachers are also asked to help students develop a good attitude toward classmates and their school. The accomplishment of these goals has a greater chance if teachers use effective teaching competencies. In the fast changing world of the early 21st century, secondary education is also changing; the role of teachers will also change. New social challenges and demands towards education and teachers, change schools into institutions with modern aims and social contracts.
At school, teachers have to encourage students to take up extracurricular activities, as well as to excel in their studies. Hence, verbal ability, content knowledge, pedagogical knowledge, certification status, ability to use a range of teaching strategies skillfully, and enthusiasm for the subject characterize more successful teachers. The effectiveness of teachers can be identified by different factors. Firstly, it is good to look at their performance at work, including what they do in classrooms and how much progress their students make on achievement tests. For instance, teachers can adopt various teaching
For successful educational productivity, we need great deal of time, energy, and effort. Motivation at school is an important factor because our learners are young and what they need is an experienced person, a facilitator or a motivator who is going to lead them towards the road of success. Since, they are inexperienced they will have to be trained to become mentally, physically and emotionally strong. In relation to Physical Education, Motivation is the key for successful teaching and learning to take place. It can be said that winning things can be very important because if an athlete keeps on training and there is no positive results, then this can affect the mental status.
It is obvious that teachers who are capable enough to and flexible fill in new roles in working with students and who are dedicated and active in seeking better educational opportunities for students are very much regarded. An effective teacher may be understood as one who helps in a development of basic skills, understanding, proper habits, desirable attitudes, value judgment and adequate personal adjustment of students. Effective teachers also lead to best academic performance and optimal all-round development of the students. Review of Related Literature: - Gupta (1995) examined the relationship between job satisfaction and teacher effectiveness of secondary school teachers and their teaching effectiveness on a sample of 560 teachers from 50
All of them are related to one another. But, among all the above factors, the teacher has the most important role for efficient and quality learning. Markley (2011) stated that Good and qualified teachers are essential for efficient functioning of educational systems and for enhancing the quality of learning. A good teacher and actions to be taken on his part in the classroom play a vital role in provoking effective and efficient learning on the part of the students. Parents trust their children to be taught and educated at school, to be hoped that they will become good and qualified human beings.
Effectiveness is very important trait in all subject areas. Researches define effectiveness in terms of student achievement. Cruickshank and Haefele (2001) noted that good teachers at various times have been called ideal, analytical, dutiful, competent, effective, satisfying, responsive and respected. Effective teachers do have an extraordinary and lasting impact on the lives of the students. As a student and prospective teacher I believe that a good and effective social studies teacher possesses essential qualities such as; command over subject area, strong control over classroom, a positive attitude and being a good evaluator.
Effective and efficient learning on the part of the students highly depends on teachers and the actions they take in their classes (Markley, 2004). Jordan, Mendro, and Weerasinghe (1997) reported that “by spending a few years with effective teachers can put even the most disadvantaged students on the path to success whereas a few years with ineffective teachers can deal students an academic blow which they may never recover”. However, Language practitioners and researchers have already recognized that teachers do not have a complete control over what learners learn from English language courses (Allwright, 1984 as cited in Breen, 2001a; Salimani, 2001). According to Williams and Burden (1997) learners perceptions of teaching have a great influence
