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.
According to Tomlinson (2012), textbooks prepare learners for examinations, help teachers by reducing their preparation time, help administrators to allocate lessons to teachers, normalize teaching, and provide teaching that would be valuable to any learner anywhere at a specified language level. It is evident that in EFL contexts teachers and textbooks play central roles as resources of the target language and culture. A textbook is a framework which regulates the programs without which classrooms have no face validity to students and learners don’t take their learning serious. In situations when shortage of experts in teaching a foreign language is felt, the role of textbooks become pivotal (Williams, 1983). Textbooks represent the role of several people in the target society, the way different people at dissimilar levels of society
The habit of evaluating over time will help the teacher develop a well-founded professional expertise because of the way in which they test out and check what they did, and as a result they can be more accurately informed about what works and what does not. The teacher will be constructing a repertoire of teaching approaches and techniques which will be in the student’s best interest. Evaluation is vital because it’s based on the teacher success in the classroom. It is this role that allows the teacher to discover the worth of their work. Teachers must find the value in what they do.
Therefore, teachers must create an ideal classroom environment that is encouraging to learning. Also, teachers should be trained to support expanded role for class interaction to make effective. Teachers should consider various strategies that can capitalize on student engagement and success in the classroom. As instructors, we can create an ideal classroom environment that is favorable to learning. Learning is intrinsically hard-work; it is pushing the brain to its limits, and it can only possible with the help of motivation.
A teacher should play many roles in the classroom. Teachers should build up the competencies in techniques and strategies for knowledge acquisition, a tactics for peaceful and harmonious co-existence with others and actualize their own potentials. Teacher’s attitude towards teaching is the key factor for success of any institution. The world is always in a state of flux. Teachers should modify the methods of teaching according to the changing world and impart the right type of education for the future generations.
Pedagogy, although may seem to be a simple term to most people, what constitutes “pedagogy” is actually much more complex and not easily defined as definitions of said word appears to be somewhat obscure (Cogill, 2008). However, pedagogy, in general, is a mix of knowledge and skills that is essential for successful teaching from teachers and facilitating development in students. While teacher pass down knowledge to the younger generation, students in turn learn to develop those knowledges hence, both teachers and students are at the centre of the learning process. If we dig in further and more specific into the definition of “pedagogy," Education theorist Roger Simon explains that: “Pedagogy” is a more complex and extensive term that “teaching”, referring to the integration in practice of particular curriculum content and design, classroom strategies and techniques, a time and space for the practice of those strategies and techniques, and evaluation purposes and methods… In other words, talk about pedagogy is simultaneously talk about the details of what students and others might do together and the cultural politics such practices support. (371) According to Simon’s definition, pedagogy is concerned with the fact that practice and processes should be taken into account on how knowledge is produced.
The pedagogical materials are the key for me as an educational student that required for the educational student as an educator to be. As an educational student I must expert about the pedagogical theory to know how to teach the students well. If the educator can’t teach well to the students, the students will confuse about the materials and they can’t understand the materials so the students can’t do the assignment well then it can causes the students can’t reach their goals in the materials. By understanding the pedagogical materials I know how to transfer the knowledge well. It is important for an educator to have good ability to transfer the knowledge, because as an educator I must reach the goals of the materials.
It means learning new formula of knowledge, developing the new teaching methods, finding new ways of working and producing new types of professional relationships between the colleagues and learners. It highlights teaching based on recent issues over the understanding of historical systems, critical thinking and skills teaching as well as the knowledge program, co-operative and cooperative working rather than secluded preparation, and the professional autonomy instead of dependency on the central instruction. It requires a transformation in how we identify learning, from an idea of learning as teacher-centered towards learning through experience, participation, research and
Teachers need to provide students with useful tools that not only will help them at school but also in their daily lives. As Wolfe poses in her book Brain Matters, “[teachers] need to put more emphasis on teaching to both halves of the brain, since they work together all the time. Content is important, but text without context is often meaningless. [They] need to teach content within a context that is meaningful to students, and that connects to their own lives and experiences. This is teaching both halves of the
In education, the ultimate purpose of the teacher is to help students to learn, often in a school. The aim is a course of study, planning of lesson, including learning and thinking skills. All these skills referred to pedagogical skills of a teacher. The teaching profession demands full devotion towards continues learning. The effective learning depends upon quality of teaching which requires individuals who are academically able and who care about the well-being of children and youth.
