SECOND TRAIT OF GREAT TEACHERS

The Second Trait displayed by Great Teachers is PREPARATION.

What all does preparation involve? How can we be well prepared for our sessions?

Suggested Activity:

In a very short time, plan on a novel and fun way to bring up a topic which you consider is very theoretical. While you do this, keep this in mind – Students might know the concept and will require you to only teach the nomenclature (the specific terms/names which are used).

E.g., While teaching genders to a class Lower Primary students you can make up a story along with the students that has all kinds of characters (nurse, horse, tiger, policeman, mother, brother, cub, king, princess, beggar, etc.) which you note down or draw on the board. Then segregate these into Common, Neuter, Masculine and Feminine genders.

The First Trait possessed by Great Teachers is GOOD APPEARANCE. What does this mean? How can we work upon our appearance?

 

Suggested activities:

  2. Come up with a short rhyme to tell about the importance of being neat and organised which you can teach the students. (This can be talked in conjunction with Swachh Bharat).
  3. Have a wall decorating day (there should be no work with books on this day) when students can be invited to paint the walls using stencils or some simple motifs and make the school bright and attractive.
