TEACH­ING EF­FEC­TIVE­NESS: A MUST FOR TEACH­ERS

Sun.Star Pampanga - - PERSPECTIVE! -

DARIEL A. DAVID

When we talk about teach­ing ef­fec­tive­ness, it’s usu­ally in the con­text of eval­u­a­tion. Stu­dent rat­ings are fre­quently de­scribed as a pa­ram­e­ter of teach­ing ef­fec­tive­ness, and that makes our un­der­stand­ing of the term im­por­tant. To iden­tify how teacher ef­fec­tive is. Here’s the list on how we mea­sure the teach­ing ef­fec­tive­ness of a teacher

• Loves the sub­ject;

•knows the sub­ject mat­ter well; •Isor­ga­nized,well-pre­pared­for­class;

• Uses a va­ri­ety of teach­ing meth­ods ;

• Cares about the suc­cess of stu­dents;

• Mo­ti­vates stu­dents to do well in the class;

• Out­lines course ex­pec­ta­tions clearly and ac­cu­rately;

• En­cour­ages ques­tions and feed­back from stu­dents;

• Keeps stu­dents in­ter­ested for the whole class pe­riod;

• makes the class en­joy­able;

• In­ter­acts with stu­dents;

•take­sa­hands-on­ap­proach­tothe­sub­ject;

• Is ac­ces­si­ble to stu­dents; and •Is­pa­tien­tand­flex­i­ble­when­deal­ing­with­stu­dents’prob­lems

If teacher im­ple­ment changes to in­crease their ef­fec­tive­ness, they may be opt­ing to im­prove in ways that are not as im­por­tant to stu­dents as are other ways. Be­yond that is the is­sue of how ef­fec­tive teach­ing re­late to learn­ing. Are stu­dents say­ing that teach­ers who con­nect with stu­dents mo­ti­vate and help them to learn bet­ter? Are teach­ers say­ing that con­cern with prepa­ra­tion and pre­sen­ta­tion of con­tent mo­ti­vates and aids learn­ing? The bot­tom line is a bet­ter rap­port of the teacher to the stu­dents to achieve the de­sired out­come.
