Teaching Methods, Tools & Strategies
Teachers juggle myriad responsibilities every day. They are charged with managing a classroom and creating a calm, positive and respectful environment where each student feels safe and appreciated. They often have mainstreamed students in the classroom representing a variety of special needs. They must continuously evaluate a student’s mastery of core subjects, preparing students for assessment exams, which often reflect directly on the performance and funding of the school. Amid all this, they must find ways to reach and motivate each student, trying different teaching methodologies as needs arise. It’s a lot to manage.
