Motivate Your Teachers

 

MOTIVATE YOUR TEACHERS

Teachers are meant to enhance the knowledge and skill of the students and provide a firm base for their intellectual growth as well as personal development. But have you ever wondered what motivates these teachers to brush up their skills every now and then to match up to the changing times as well as improve their own skills and teaching abilities? Well, to improve the performance of teachers and to help them grow professionally so as to promote the learning of students, many schools conduct Teacher In-service programs. This program involves the participation of all the teachers of a school in informational as well as learning sessions to improve their own teaching capabilities as well as skill building.

Majority of schools devote a few days every year as in-service days for the teachers wherein the students enjoy their day off but the teachers are required to attend the training sessions in order to boost their knowledge and skills in addition to adapting to the new advanced techniques of the changing times. This helps them polish their own teaching methods by implementing new techniques that helps in reaching out to the students in a more effective way and make the study more enjoyable as well as knowledgeable.  Well trained teachers ensure better student achievement and thus, more and more schools and teachers are now keen and opting in for the in-service program that not only polishes and hones the skills of the qualified teachers but also, instills in them the confidence of adapting to new methods including the usage of latest technology or social media as powerful learning tools. This program helps them meet their specific needs in regards to education and teaching as the educator conducting the service is capable of introducing them to new ways to improve their practice in addition to suggesting measures to cater to their specific needs.

Such professional development programs or workshops motivate and encourage the teachers to strive for excellence and aim towards achieving highest level of performance. Moreover, a motivated teacher is satisfied with the job he or she is entitled to and thus, puts in the best foot forward to achieve new heights in teaching.

To help teachers reach soaring heights in their profession which in turn, promotes the development of the students, various motivational programs are undertaken by different providers. One of the most innovative training program is titled  ‘Bryan Fiese’s 10 Rules of Student Enagement’ which is approved through  various states including Texas Education Agency, Kentucky Department of Education, and Arkansas Department of Education in offering CPE credits and is being widely incorporated by various districts of the United States to educate teachers about various ways of creating an engaging learning environment for the students so as to help them connect and maximize the learning experience.

Are You a Good Teacher?

Bryan Fiese: No Teacher Left Behind – Keeping Up With and Captivating Generation Next In the Classroom

Are you a good teacher? I assume you are one, since right now you are looking for effective teaching strategies, you are willing to learn a teaching style in your classroom. Certainly you want to teach your students how to get along in life, how to use the knowledge you and your school provide them. You want to see your students as successful, happy, bright grown-ups who can recognize their own unique skills and talents and make the best of them; you make it your mission. You have plenty of students, all of them promising in their own way. You are the one who needs to find their strengths, to help them become creative. You are supposed to make them realize that education is important, it is a path to a good, satisfying, whole life. It all depends on the teaching style in your classroom.

Your profession is a wonderful and hard one. It requires plenty of empathy and patience. It requires effective teaching strategies and an ability to keep your students interested and motivated. Probably you see the downsides of teaching time and again, your students are yawning during classes, they do not care about your advice, they are uninterested in your subject, perhaps they do not understand how important it is to get a proper education, to prepare for their adult lives. How could you help these negative feelings? Can you implement a new teaching style in your classroom?  How could you learn new, effective teaching techniques?

Motivating and empowering your students can help more than ordering them around. A couple of decades ago, motivation via intimidation might have done the trick, however, it does not work any longer. We live in a free, fast-paced world these days, teaching methods and the demands of the world have changed, the expectations are high, and Generation Y and Z are different than students used to be ten years ago. These changing circumstances require different but equally effective teaching techniques.  Teachers should adapt to the change, without getting into laissez faire attitude. How could you keep up the interest of a bunch of active – sometimes too active –, curious, smart students? You cannot force them to want to study more or get interested in a subject, this is obvious. You need effective teaching techniques and a new teaching style in your classroom to make them understand that doing well at school is within their best interests.

Never give up. You can get professional advice from a well-respected writer and education expert, Bryan Fiese, in his amazing book, No Teacher Left Behind – Keeping up with and Captivating Generation Next in the Classroom. This is the second edition of the book, the first one was a hit with teachers and educators. In his book, Bryan Fiese offers effective teaching strategies, he introduces cognitive methods on classroom management, it describes a program that will help you recognize your students’ interests, skills, background knowledge, language skills, their preference in learning, from visual to audiovisual types. This could help you a whole lot when you teach them. From this comprehensive and interesting book, No Teacher Left Behind, you can learn how to be a democratic and respected teacher, to use a new teaching style in your classroom, to provide a safe and motivating environment for your students. You can learn effective teaching strategies on how to solve problems you might have with your students.

What to Expect from Generation Next in the Classroom

As products of our consumer-driven
postmodern society, Gen-Nexters are likely to exhibit the following key characteristics in the classroom:

- Impatients with Techno-Illiteracy
- An Expectation of Amusement
- A Need for Instant Gratification
- Appreciation of – not just tolerance for
– diversity
- Cynicism
- A focus on effort over excellence

As well as being highly techno-literate, Gen-Nexters expect learning to be fun and entertaining, expect instant
gratification, appreciate diversity, are somewhat cynical and are averse to highly structured, overly competitive environments
