TeachersMethods and techniques of teaching to enhance the classroom experience.
In working up your strategies keep in mind you are dealing with individuals that know little about the subject matter and will need to understand what you are trying to teach. Try putting yourself in their place. Ask yourself what can I do to reach them in a positive way, while getting them to question, comprehend and become more informed.

Advice
1. Get to know your students. Go out of your way to get to know their names, likes, dislikes, strengths and weakness.
2. Make your classroom environment warm, safe and inviting.
3. Be yourself, students quickly can see through any falsehood you might project.
4. As much as possible make your lessons relevant, simple and easy to understand.
5. Test writing and worksheets should be on topic and non-confusing.
6. Any test should be designed to see what they don't know, so you as a teacher can work towards those weaknesses.
7. Have a sense of humor, empathy and charm. Students respond when they think you care.
8. Don't allow the classroom to become a contest of wills. Students by their nature will always push the envelope to see what they can get away with.
9. Stay in contact with the parents for both what the student is doing wrong and what they are doing right. It is worth your time to get the parents on your side.
10. Don't spend your time behind the desk. Walk around the room while you are lecturing or while the students are working either as a group or individually. If you see a student doing what you expect of them, let them know how you feel. If they are not performing to your expectations let them know in a diplomatic and supportive manner. A good seating chart will help you in getting to know the names of your students at the beginning of the semester.
