Do you want high-quality work from your students?
Always have an example to show your students. If you want them to produce a dynamic and engaging poster then make one, if you’d like them to build s model of a dinosaur then build one, and if you want your students to produce a comprehensive study of an animal of their choice, print this image out and read it together.
Students are keen to learn when their teacher allows them to connect with the learning on their own terms. When a lesson is over and just because the direct teaching is over the secret is to give a research project that allows innovation.
The most crucial part for any teacher is the MODELLING part of the lesson. Where you display your interest in the subject whilst setting your clear expectations of the standard of the work you’d like to receive.
If you are planning any lesson please include the modelling section and make it your mission to hook your students through your enthusiasm and expectations.
