How the classroom teacher can support students
- Make time for calmer students
While students come out openly sharing their news with you and other forms, forms teachers should also be interested in quiet students who risk slipping off the radar.
Students can be calm in the school environment and do interesting hobbies outside of school. Therefore, it is worth taking the time to involve all students if you can help them build their confidence.
However, it didn’t work just calling these students in groups. You must be better.
Maybe you could ask students to work with their organizers to write weekend summaries, have “conferences” with individuals or small groups of students, ask students to do “All For Me” activities, or communication activities such as At Speed.
For example, a quiet girl once casually mentioned that she was involved in mountaineering, which led her to give a presentation to her friends.
- Tell students that you are there for them
There are times when you are the only person a student can contact on topics that range from academics to friendship to family.
Your advice and guidance can be invaluable. So make sure to listen to these students and give them time to talk.
The key is to make them feel confident and confident between you, which means that if you have a problem they can turn to you.
- Don’t pressure them to talk
Instead, it is important that students find their own way of doing this. It is important that you do not encourage students to open up or talk because they may feel pressured and do not want to talk.
It’s also important not to judge whether they are open to something.
If you just tell them they are wrong and how to act, they may lose confidence to talk to you.
Discuss each scenario and the consequences of any actions students can take.
- Always follow school guidelines
As the class teacher, students can trust you in ways they can’t any other teacher.
Although this is part of the pastoral element of the classroom teacher’s role, it is important to follow all guidelines.
If your student tells you something you can’t keep secret, explain it to them. Describe the steps so that you will feel involved in every decision you need to make.
It is also important that the form trainer ensures that he or she knows who the right staff is, i.e. B. Protective measures that can provide essential information if needed.
- Don’t let the norms of behavior slip
Form timing can be a little easier than class.
Therefore, it is natural for some students to break boundaries. But you will get more respect if you stand firm and don’t let them take advantage of your good relationship.
The classroom teacher can also be an important link between students and their subject teacher when problems arise, eg. B. Participate in meetings between them.
This will let students understand that you are interested in all aspects of their education, that teachers communicate with each other, and that they cannot play one teacher against another.
- Don’t ignore student success
Creating a Student of the Week for Academic and Academic Achievement encourages everyone to be successful and can generate small gifts and positive letters for the home that parents highly appreciate.
The ability of students to anonymously nominate their peers for the Semester Student Award, which can be done with a meal and a drink on the last day of the semester, is another great way to show students that others value them.
Sometimes you need to proactively share this type of information: perhaps reading student earnings information, telling coworkers that you want to learn about your achievements, informal chats at work, getting information from class, or getting ideas from their peers.
They all help to show that you care and that a great work of art is being refrigerated so that school success is celebrated in groups.
