HOW TO MAKE THE STUDENTS’ LIKE OUR TEACHING
Hj. ERNA EMI,S.Pd ( The teacher of SMP N 2 Gunung Talang , Solok West Sumatra )
The process Learning and teaching will be success if there is a good relation ship between a teacher and the students. We know English is not an interesting subject for Junior High students , so we must have good ways to make them interested about English material. Don’t give them questions without understandable .. We have many kinds of model of teaching English . Don’t explain the materials with the same ways . These will make them bored with the lesson and of course with us as teachers. Give extra entertainment in our teaching
Here I want to share to all teachers of English how to make the students like our action in front of the class.
- try to be kind to the students
Every enter the class room please keep smiling to the students, greet them by Saying Good morning and ask their condition friendly in order to make fresh. In learning process, give them reward by saying “ Good, excellent, nice, well done , etc. Do not be angry if we find the low students and difficult for them to catch our ideas . Try to explain slowly many times until they look like understand. Serve them if they ask some questions to us.
- Explain the material with nice presentation
As a teacher we must be smart to choose the suitable technique or method of learning , so the students can be happy in listening our explanation and they are not boring fast. In teaching process we must start from the interesting point and give them some thing in order to attract the students attention , such as games , light questions and answers, light stories that have relation with our material . These can make the students happy to follow our activities . They will not fell we have use 80 minutes of our teaching time.
- Give variation material
Before entering the class, we have prepared materials on our teacher’s note. There we have divided the materials and also the suitable technique. Don’t teach grammar every meeting. We know grammar is look like a monster for the students. To avoid this problem , grammar we can give in game section and in funny situation. Teaching grammar must be learned but not forcing material
- giving game
Game is one of a good way in learning English. By the game the students fell fresh in joining the lesson that we want to teach. Through a game the students are more relax in learning , because they are happy although they will do the difficult way. Beside, Game is also used to avoid students boring in learning a material. Please give a game for classical or all students follow the activity which is given . A little bit noisy is not problem. If we always do by this point The students will be sure waiting us in patiently
- Don’t explain the lesson too fast
As teachers we must give all materials in a regular of time . But we must know and see our students condition. We consider they are ready to continue to the next material or still need more practices . This is done in order to make the students are able to catch one material and jump to the next problem. It is so wise isn’t it ? Here , please make our subject is not horrible for the students. Please realize that English is so difficult but can be learned.
I hope 5 ways can make the teachers of English will be loved by our students.
