We "teachers" read and studied alot of books and articles about teaching strategies,but ..Can we apply all those theories in the class??What do you think?
For me, I can say that theories can help but if we know how to apply them correctly and add our own experience and personality.
Teaching is not only about motivating students to learn ,but about helping them how to learn and get the essence of the information.If the teachers have the passion and the the love to their career ,so I think they can convey them to the students.
It's so important to keep the teacher's authority and the respect inside the class ,and at the same time create a relaxed atmosphere to the students...to make them share ideas ,ask questions ....
I think teachers should have first of all self-confidence then,they can use their information and theories to explain the lessons.
Good teachers practice their job not for money or because they have to, but because they enjoy it and they want to be a teacher.
Good teachers couldn't imagine doing anything else !
