Educating or teaching is no longer an easy job as students could learn so many things out there with the aid of technology – Internet could not completely filter bad influences from students. Thus, teachers play a vital role in educating and churning out students with good values that will contribute to the society for good. My suggestion is, start with the right and appropriate teacher resources as they serve as the foundation of material in educating students. What are the things to take note upon selecting teacher resources?
Teacher resources and learning activities that are interactive
Students at younger ages usually do not like sitting in the classroom facing merely textbooks. They should be thought how to study and how to focus on study. But first of all, it is essential to build their interest in learning. Teachers should consider using interactive elements such as illustrative flashcards, magazines with stickers or educational toys as teacher resources. Teachers could buy art tools such as crayon and pencil color to unleash children’s creativity and imaginary at school. Reading and memorizing books is not the only way of teaching students, there are more fun and interactive ways to engage students in studying.
Set up and decorate a learning resource room for students
Besides library that mainly keeps books and allows students to borrow books, teachers should take the initiative to set up a learning resource room for effective learning. Various learning materials such as educational DVDs, computer games and music equipment should be provided so that students love going to school. They do not have to stay in the classroom or at the canteen during recess time, a well-equipped learning resource room could be one of the favorite places your students love to spend time in!
Know the methods that suit your students the best
If you were teaching a group of secondary students that might in the rebellious stage, textbooks might not attract them anymore. You might need to consider educating them in a moral way, for instance, providing counseling and advice from a friend point of view. You can find DVDs or videos that relate the most to their lives and start sharing some useful tips for them to appreciate people and things around. While scoring straight As in examinations is important, teachers should find teacher resources that build good personality and attitudes as well.
