Know that each student is gifted: A great teacher knows this and mentors his students so that they perform up to their potential. Make them question everything: Questioning what’s going on around you and what is being taught in class helps in learn. But not every student is like that. As a teacher you must be able to cultivate curiosity in your students and tell them how important it is to ask questions and seek answers. Take learning beyond books: Learning is not just about imbibing knowledge through books. Imparting lessons outside the classroom makes learning more interactive and fun.
