Teachers’ Day 2022: Student engagement is now a significant difficulty for teachers to overcome in the classroom. To top it all off, the COVID-caused pandemic had a tragic effect on education. Because they were not allowed to leave the house, the children were forced to rely on their electronic devices for their online education. All of this affected their motivation to participate in school, compounding the teachers’ woes.
Teachers should provide students with constructive criticism as well as praise. This will assist them in learning from their mistakes and developing a positive teacher-student relationship.
Here are a few methods for increasing student engagement that teachers can use in the classroom:
Understand Your Students
Make an effort to connect with your students on a personal level. Inquire about their hobbies, learn about their parents, or inquire about their pets. This will give you a sense of who the student is and where they are from.
Engage them by Playing Games
As a teacher, you can encourage critical thinking in your students by having them interact in team-building activities. Games are enjoyable and assist students in bonding and socialising with their peers.
Expect the Best from Everyone
By assuming the best in all of your students, you change your perspective on their behaviour, the quality of their assignment work, and their personality.
When students try something new, acknowledge and encourage them. They may make errors, but they will learn from them. Deliver concise and effective feedback as a teacher, and then move on. Do not dwell on their errors.
