How To Develop Great Teaching Skills
Teaching a class of students is much harder than most people imagine. Not only do you need the knowledge of different subjects in order to pass it on, but a wide range of other skills is also necessary to keep control over a large group, and engage them - even when the topic isn't the most exciting. This can provide you with a real challenge, but as we are about to find out, it becomes far easier when you begin to develop new teaching skills and techniques.

Improving your skills as a teacher takes effort, but once you begin to gain a better understanding of the 'tricks of the trade', you can implement countless simple measures to increase the effectiveness of your lessons - in no time at all.

One of the areas where most people slip up when it comes to being a success in the teaching industry is time management. Organizing yourself in the right way actually saves time in the long run, though at that moment, it can seem too strenuous to bother with. Create yourself an easy-to-follow, realistic schedule; by putting aside time slots during the week where you will dedicate yourself to specific jobs, you can ensure you complete all of your tasks in advance - something which benefits both you and your students.

For instance, it may be a good idea to save a couple of hours per week to prepare for any practical activities you plan to carry out with your class in the coming days, with some additional time allocated to talking with students about any concepts they didn't quite grasp. Remember: your teaching skills will often be measured by the success of your pupils; are they meeting their targets? If not, why?

Another simple measure you can take to enhance your skill collection is through analyzing all of the work you do. Look at all the activities you have done with a class, be they practical or theoretically based. Note what went well, and what could have been better. If you refer to this next time you do something similar, you can incorporate the bits which seemed to have a positive effect, and try something else in replacement of the things that needed to be improved. This way, you will end up with an array of exercises that are productive and worthwhile.

Being resourceful is instrumental should you want to ascend to the ultimate layer of teaching. Don't be afraid to ask others with experience what approach they take with their classes, about activities that they think were very successful, or for details on any courses or books they read that helped them understand the classroom environment more than before hand.

By combining these easy suggestions with your own personal knowledge and experience, you could well start to bank more and more teaching skills straight away. Hopefully, you can implement these in your classroom, simply adapting them for different age and ability groups. Students enjoying themselves - but still achieving their anticipated targets - is one of the most accurate signs in telling you that your teaching is going well.***

The benefits of homework has been debated by teachers and parents for years as the very word evokes very negative connotations to every involved, students, parents and teachers. Although many people think of homework as doing more harm than good by causing copious amounts of unnecessary stress to everyone, others believe that it has great advantages for children by encouraging them to think more independently outside the classroom.

The National Council for the Social Studies (2001) defines responsible citizenship as “the knowledge, skills, and attitudes [required if one is to] assume the ‘office of citizen’ in our democratic republic” (p. 319). “A critical purpose of the educational institution in a democratic society is to prepare its citizens for their role as participants in that society…[as]…full and equal citizens” (Lindsay & Justiz, 2001, p. 7). In fact, education for all students is a moral mandate in a civil society (Dewey, 1944; Parker, 2001). To ready students for civil life, America’s public schools are charged with the task of educating all students for responsible citizenship.

While opportunities exist throughout the curriculum, elementary social studies classrooms provide many opportunities to foster citizenship skills and dispositions (Parker, 2001; Maxim, 2003). Citizenship education includes helping all students contribute and part…

The quality of someone's teaching does not just refer to how much information they manage to get into their student's heads or the results that they produce. It also refers to their technique and presentation. Many teachers have a fantastic amount of knowledge that would be greatly useful to students, but they have no idea of how to express it. Great teaching often has less to do with wisdom and skills, but more to do with their attitude to their student, their subject and their work. This article explains the top five characteristics of great teachers, and how to incorporate them into your own lessons.
