Learning from experiences is something extraordinary. That experience may be came up from our previous or our current teachers. Here, I want to share why I really appreciate my teachers as my good models. At that time, I considered a good teacher as a person who can make their students understand about the lesson only. That’s the point of view I thought. Even I didn’t care about what approaches my teachers use to make their successful teaching. In fact, I had never identified why my teachers could make me interest in and understand about the lesson.
As the teacher candidate, now, I think analyzing the way a teacher create a successful teaching and learning is important. Just share, guys. 🙂
Based on my experience, when I learned with my good teachers I mean above, there are some special methods and attitudes I find in their teaching styles. The first thing I remember is they created various tasks which made the students involved to the lesson. Students sometimes did those tasks individually or in group and inside or outside the classroom. Then when I asked about the topic I didn’t understand, they could give me the real example which I could simply catch up what they meant. Besides that, when they taught us, they appeared already preparing what they were going to do in the class well. In addition, I like them very much because they always explained with clear voice that didn’t make me sleepy in the class. Hihihi. They didn’t also ever blame their students when their students had a bad score. They sometimes told us about the story relating to the topic, which make me encourage learning more.
Those reasons might be my experiences as a teacher candidate. From those reasons I also can conclude, we can be the effective teachers not only by practicing what we learned from the books or lecturers but also what we learned from the experiences.
By the way, how is your experience, guys?? 🙂
