Good Teacher
« on: March 28, 2010, 02:33:40 PM »
Teaching is like no other profession. As a teacher, you will wear many hats. You  should be a communicator, a disciplinarian, a conveyor of information, an evaluator, a classroom manager, a counselor, a member of many teams and groups, a decision-maker, a role-model, and a surrogate parent.

Good teachers:
1)are good at explaining things.
2)have a sense of humor
3)are inherently fair-minded
4)have "common sense."
5)have a command of the content they teach.
6)set high expectations for their students and hold the students to those expectations.
7)can lead or follow, as the situation demands

Yes we are role models to our students. I completely agree with Ms. Sabnam

We should teach the students how to study on their own and help themselves. If they go abroad, they won't able to adjust to that environment just because of their inability to do self-study.

Skills Development

In Bangladesh we emphasis on degrees and results but in developed countries like in England, i have seen people value on skills; how skilled a person is and how creative he or she is to carry out or perform a specific job is judged, no matter how educated or less educated he or she is. That is the reason why so many right people in Bangladesh are not in the right places.

Students don't study
« Reply #5 on: March 31, 2010, 12:46:40 PM »

I see many students don't seem to study at all. They just tend to study at night before the exam. We, the teachers should encourage and motivate them continuously, otherwise they are going to suffer in the long run.

I do agree with Shibli sir that most of the students study at night before the exam. To reduce this tendency, we can take some steps such as-

-Most of the time we see that if we assign students to do a task as an assignment, they try to copy it as they do not read at home. To avoid this, sometimes we may ask questions on the assignment topic to the students at the time of collecting assignments. If they fail to answer us properly we can tell them to do the assignment again with an additional task. In this way, they will be encouraged to submit the assignment with a good knowledge on the topic to avoid this punishment.   

-After finishing our lecture we can let them go through about what we have discussed in that class (but not in depth) for ten minutes from their lecture copy. After that we can ask questions and based on their performance we can reward them a bonus point. In this way they will be motivated to listen our lectures attentively and write it in their copy.


By taking the above steps i hope we will be able to motivate them to study from the beginning of the course.

Dear sir

Teachers are asking for a separate forum on which they can discuss on various issues to develop themselves and that should not be seen by any student. We would highly appreciate if we are given the opportunity to discuss among ourselves.

The most important part of teaching, i suppose, is to take preparation for the class. A teacher has to study a lot and take necessary preparation before going to the class. He/she  has to be sure before what he or she is going to teach the students in a particular class.

Shibli Sir, I strongly agree with you. If the teacher is clear enough regarding the topic only then he or she will be able to describe the thing simply and fascinatingly.

The more preparation a teacher takes, the more easy it becomes for him or her to make the lesson lucid. I do agree with you, Madam. We should study a lot and take sufficient preparation before taking class.

My view is, as a teacher we should work to increase the confidence level of our students. The more confident they fell, the better they feel about the task at hand and their ability to do that. I think, to build confidence level we should avoid criticism. Criticism can make someone depressed which can creates barrier to become successful in the life.

One. Good teaching is as much about passion as it is about reason. It's about not only motivating students to learn, but teaching them how to learn, and doing so in a manner that is relevant, meaningful, and memorable. It's about caring for your craft, having a passion for it, and conveying that passion to everyone, most importantly to your students.
