Positive Classroom Teaching Ideas
Do students feel welcome in your classroom? Do you greet them when they enter? Teachers who have a positive classroom are more likely to have positive students. Those positive students make it more likely that you will have success as a teacher. Creating a positive classroom takes a few small steps for a large reward. A positive classroom environment enhances your classroom discipline and classroom management.
Teachers Have to Want to be There
Sometimes you get stuck. Either way, you have got to want to be there. You as a teacher are the one responsible for the learning of your given students. Give them your best each and every day. No matter how tough the teaching job is, you need to have a positive attitude and WANT to be teaching in your current position. I suppose it is possible to fake it.
So let's change that. You need to at least appear that you want to be in your current classroom each and every day. Seriously. If you really cannot do that, quit and look for another job. Your students only get one chance.
Welcome the Students
Never Show Anger
Your classroom discipline must be mastered. Read the article on classroom discipline and classroom management. Your students will get the idea that you are a cool head. If not, they will think you can be baited and try it frequently. The ones who may empathize with you, will lose faith in you as a teacher. Don't lose the students you can and have reached.
Treat Every Day as a New Day
Forget about the lousy day teaching you had yesterday. Each day in the classroom is a new one. Strive to be a little better each day. If teachers look at each day as perhaps a new beginning, they cannot help but be positive.
No Question is Dumb
Don't be a Punisher
Call Each Student by Name
Give Students Choices if Possible
Homework Should be not be Home Work.
Positive Feedback at all Times
Make Positive Calls Home
Accept Every Student No Matter What
These are just a few ideas for a positive classroom and becoming a positive teacher. Eventually, your classroom will be such a positive place, that you as well as students will want to be there.
