At the end of five years, many new teachers leave the educational system for good completely burnt out from the world of teaching. Very often, these are potentially good educators with high dreams to engage their students. If only they had one thing going for them, they would have excelled in their mission.
In fact, how many times have you walked out of a lesson thinking that something was lacking in your lesson, but you still can’t put a finger on what it is? Chances are, you are probably one of many teachers who need to start by either creating an educationally engaging plan, which is the key to every student’s success.An engaging teacher does more than just teach motivating content; s/he finds ways to engage students in areas of classroom management and content based material.
Excellent teachers actually do both together usually without students even noticing that they are being taught. There is no real magic recipe to create an engaging educational plan but the real magic does begin with you and who you are as a person. Here is my advice to help new teachers build the foundations for creating an engaging educational plan of their dreams.
Don’t make Discipline Problems Your Enemy
Not every discipline problem needs to be reported. In fact, more than 50% of discipline related issues can be backed up with strategies and tactics to engage the student on a interpersonal level. Even if your students has disobeyed the rule, don’t start with reporting the problem right away. Begin first with the student. If the student shows immediate signs of violence or tension, do or say something that will calm that student. Reflect it to the class that you are on the student’s side.This will offset the tension the students typically feel in the class.
Show Your Personal Side
As a new teacher you want to brand yourself through positive actions. Are you the approachable type? The tired type? The never ending complaining type? Remember, the image you create is what students see first. This can either make them feel connected or disconnected to who you are and how you teach. Either way, they can see through you and know if you are irritable and tense or calm and excitable.
Teach in a Student Friendly language
Continuing to work with the students is a crucial part of creating an engaging educational plan. when using a new teaching strategy, take note of not only how your class responds on a whole, but pay attention to the finer details like: what makes your students laugh, cry, laugh. Students love when you are approachable especially when you teach. You don’t have to be an entertainer, but you do need to be approachable. Basically, try to turn the redirection moments into fun and teachable moments. When you are in-sync with your students, your class will feel it too and will listen to you even more.
