How to Motivate Your Students

How to Motivate Your Students

Every teacher has those days where the students seem to be on a different planet… you know what we mean. Those days when a normal tone of voice goes unheard, when the students just refuse to pay attention and continue with banter and chatter while you desperately try to get their attention and try to motivate your students.   Then there’s the students themselves. Some of them simply aren’t interested in learning, others have problems paying attention, and yet others are disorganized and might perform poorly despite trying their best. It is important for a teacher to maintain control of the class while encouraging students to improve their skills and achieve better academic performance. Here are some ways to motivate your students in a constructive manner. Intrinsic and Extrinsic Motivational Factors Motivation is both intrinsic and extrinsic. Environmental factors, the teacher’s personality and preferred teaching method, the classroom environment, the child’s home environment and other students in the class are all external factors that...

How You Can Make Maths Classes Interesting and Effective

How You Can Make Maths Classes Interesting and Effective

There’s a common stereotype that Asians are ‘innately’ good at mathematics, but you will find that this is unfortunately untrue in the case of Malaysia. In 2015, a study by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) found the mathematics and science proficiency among 15-year-old Malaysian students to be equivalent to their peers in less economically privileged countries. Our southern neighbour Singapore was ranked first, while Malaysia was ranked 52nd out of the 76 participating nations[1]. Stereotypes of some students – and some ethnicities – being inherently ‘good’ or ‘bad’ at mathematics are unhelpful since educators should ideally aim to help each individual student attain his or her full potential. It is true that some students show up with more curiosity and aptitude for this technical and abstract subject than their peers, but it would be counterproductive to assume that their more disinterested counterparts are ‘destined’ for mediocrity. Whether you are teaching in a government school, private school, tuition centre or...

The teacher deserves respect from the society because they make Professionals in the society. So the society is always indebted to the teachers.  Teachers are Gurus, and  they are compared with the full moon.  It is because, as the moon removes the darkness of the earth similarly Gurus removes the darkness of mind from the students.  I am indebted to my Gurus.  What are depicted below I learned from my Gurus and through my walk of life. Just ask yourself....................................... "Why I wanted to become a teacher "'?  Does your answer matches any one of them given below: Is it for a simple BUSINESS Do you want to become your own BOSS Do you want...

Emotions and its corresponding Instincts

Hi my dear Teachers across the world: In this blog I will tell you in the school how it is important to know the Emotions and it corresponding Instincts of the children. As you know I was Principal in a school.  So one day in a class I did see one boy was not paying attention. I asked him, "My dear child what is wrong with you.  Why you are not paying attention to the class". He answered me rudely, "I am not well". I called the boy tenderly and asked him "What you had for breakfast" He answered, "Nothing" I asked him, "Are you hungry". He said , "Yes" I got some cakes and fruits for him through my peon.  He had those and quietly went to the class. When Hunger is the emotion then food seeking would be the corresponding instinct.  As I knew the psychology I handled the situation. So there are fourteen emotions and fourteen corresponding emotions, which are listed below How emotion is related to instinct? State...
