MAKE YOUR TEACHING METHODS MORE EFFECTIVE
Healthy Environment & Acceptance Level
TEACHING METHODOLOGY Generally students are avoiding to answer any questions or to raise their point of view because they felt that if they will be wrong then they will be scolded, mocked or punished by teacher so they remain silent instead of having great thought or different point of view. Thus we should make a healthy friendly environment in the class where the message to students that Nothing is wrong & No one is incorrect.
Being a teacher we want that each and every student will accept our thoughts and learnings at a same time we should also increase our level of acceptance in the class. We should make a friendly atmosphere where any one can say anything either relevant or irrelevant.
Creative & illustrative teaching
Creativity is a way to explore our inner thoughts more effectively. Take the help of tools to stimulate creativity. Include illustrative methods, playful games or forms of visual exercises that will excite young minds and capture their interest.
This is a time-tested method to identify every young student’s creative abilities and encourage creative contributions.
Bring aspects of creativity into all your subjects, be it mathematics, science, or history. Think of ways to develop their creative ideas.
Encourage different ideas, give them the freedom to explore
Make time for brainstorming sessions in your classrooms. These sessions are a great way to get the creative juices flowing.
When you have multiple brains focusing on one single idea, you are sure to get numerous ideas and will also involve everyone into the discussion.
These sessions will be a great platform for students to voice their thoughts without having to worry about right or wrong.
Set some ground rules before you start. You can go for simple brainstorming or group brainstorming or paired brainstorming
To solve a specific problem, students make sketches and then pass evolving sketches to their neighbors.
How: Students sit in a group of 6-8 around a table or in a circle. Questions or problems should be well explained and understood by each student. Each participant privately makes one or more sketches and passes the sketch to the person on the right when it is finished or when a brief set time has passed. Participants develop or annotate the sketches passed to them, or use them to inspire new sketches which are also passed in turn.
A concept map is a visual organization and representation of knowledge. It shows concepts and ideas and the relationships among them.We use tools and real world entities to develop skills and knowledge.
A storyboard is a graphic organizer in the form of illustrations or images displayed in sequence for the purpose of pre-visualizing a motion picture, animation, motion graphic or interactive media sequence.The Storyboards teaching strategy helps students keep track of a narrative’s main ideas and supporting details.

Role-play is a technique that allows students to explore realistic situations by interacting with other people in a managed way in order to develop experience and trial different strategies in a supported environment.
Decoration of classroom
Decorate the walls with pictures that correspond to the class subject. Make sure each of the decorations on your wall has a purpose, since too much decoration can be distracting. Choose quotes, inspiring figures, and class-related images to decorate the walls and encourage students to be interested in the class.
Do What You Love
It’s very important to know the intrest of students. Each and every student love certain to do. Free them to love anything and free them to do what they love.
Study without Study
Make an environment where students can explore them selves. Where they can say anything, do anything , create anything and present them selves with inner thoughts as well as expressions.
Classes out of classes
Basically, classroom environment is essential to promote and stimulate collaborative learning. But sometime it’s more beneficial to teach them outside of the class, any special place where they can boost up with enthusiasm, energy, fresh knowledge & experience.
