We’re all teachers in our own ways. There are people that we work and interact with daily who look to us for both technical learning and life lessons. Let’s explore great teachers’ approaches and see what they can teach us about our teaching roles. Great teachers:
- Present challenging concepts
- Are passionate about their subject(s)
- Use vivid stories to illustrate lessons
- Ask you about the subject area even outside the class room
- Are true to the principles they teach
- Teach heuristics to master & use the content
- Make complex topics understandable
- Are interactive
- Make learning fun and rewarding
- Don’t simply give answers away for the asking
- Are still actively learning themselves
- Have a love for the material / topic
- Adapt to students’ various learning styles
Identify three new ideas for each of the approaches above that you can adapt to become a better teacher to those around you.
