Identifying Effective Teaching
1. Classroom management: Effective teachers develop good managerial techniques. They make sure students know what expect; they make certain that students know what to do if they need help; they follow through with reminders and rewards to enforce rules; and they do not respond to discipline problems emotionally.
2. Direct instruction: Effective teachers have a clear, systematic method of teaching, called direct instruction or explicit teaching. they proceed in small steps, provide ample review and explanation before proceeding to the next step, ask questions and check for understanding, and provide systematic feedback and correction.
3. Time on task: effective teachers provide students with relevant academic activities and see to it that students spend an adequate amount of time actually engaged in these learning activities.
4. Questioning: effective teachers ask appropriate questions in a manner that ensures participation and facilitates mastery of academic content. Questioning focuses on both facts and abstract thinking.
5. Comprehension Instruction: Effective teachers emphasis independent learning and learning to learn. they teach students to apply concepts , solve problems, and monitor their own comprehension.
6. Level of cognitive instruction: Most instruction for low-achieving students emphasizes mechanical role learning. Effective teachers try to move toward high-order thinking skills and independent learning by motivating students to learn and by using appropriate materials and activities.
7. Grouping: Effective teachers are able to group students for individualized and small-group instruction. They are able to work with more than one student or group at a line.ដកស្រង់ពីសៀវភៅ Useful Tips for Prospective Teachers
