The Ten Worst Teaching Mistakes by Richard M. Felder, North Carolina State University and Rebecca Brent, Education Designs, Inc. Reprinted from TOMORROW'S PROFESSORsm eMAIL NEWSLETTER You may download a PDF version of this document. Like most faculty members, we began our academic careers with zero prior instruction on college teaching and quickly made almost every possible blunder. We've also been peer reviewers and mentors to colleagues, and that experience on top of our own early stumbling has given us a good sense of the most common mistakes college teachers make. In this column and one to follow we present our top ten list, in roughly increasing order of badness. Mistake #10. You know what happens when you do that. Mistake #9. You stop in mid-lecture and point your finger abruptly: "Joe, what's the next step?" Mistake #8. It has become common for instructors to put their lecture notes into PowerPoint and to spend their class time mainly droning through the slides. Mistake #7. Mistake #6. Mistake #5. Mistake #4.

8 Characteristics Of A Great Teacher 8 Characteristics Of A Great Teacher by Ian Lancaster What makes a teacher strong? What differentiates the best from the rest? 1. Confidence while teaching can mean any number of things, it can range from having confidence in your knowledge of the material being learned to having confidence that your teaching acumen is second to none. It’s the confidence that you know you’re in the right spot doing what you want to be doing and that no matter what transpires, having that time to spend with those young learners is going to be beneficial both for them and for yourself. 2. Having some life experience outside the classroom and outside the realm of education is invaluable for putting learning into context and keeping school activities in perspective. 3. Just as each student has a different set of interests, every student will have a correspondingly different set of motivators. These students run the risk of disengaging altogether. 4. Yes, all teachers are heroes. 5. 6. 7. 8.

The Importance of Asking Questions to Promote Higher-Order Competencies Irving Sigel devoted his life to the importance of asking questions. He believed, correctly, that the brain responds to questions in ways that we now describe as social, emotional, and cognitive development. Questions create the challenges that make us learn. The essence of Irv's perspective is that the way we ask questions fosters students' alternative and more complex representations of stories, events, and circumstances, and their ability to process the world in a wider range of ways, to create varying degrees of distance between themselves and the basis events in front of them, is a distinct advantage to learning. However, Irv found that schools often do not ask the range of questions children need to grow to their potential. Tell: Tell children the story by reading the text or having them read the text. Suggest: This involves providing children with choices about what might happen next or possible opinions they might have. For the story, here are some two-question rule sequences:

How to Shrink Your Course Image: Honey, I Shrunk the Kids (1989) This summer, I faced the challenge of squeezing a course I usually teach during a 15-week semester into a paltry 6-week session. It felt like trying to pour my post-Christmas body into skinny jeans. I had taught this developmental-writing course twice before during the regular academic year, but I knew it would be a whole new can of worms in a shorter time frame. While I’m confident that my students learned to become better writers during their brief time with me this summer, there was plenty I tweaked along the way to make that happen. Trim the fat without cutting the meat. So I had to declutter — that is, I had to prioritize my curriculum to determine which units and readings had to go and which absolutely could not be cut. In a course that prepares students for college writing, could I, in good conscience, get rid of the big research project? Speed through the getting-to-know-you routine. Second, I pushed office hours from Day 1. Break it up.

PE games for your Physical Education class! - PhysEd Games What Makes Teachers Great, From The Perspective of a 10th Grader This article was written by Noa Gutow-Ellis, a high school sophomore in Houston, Texas. She’s passionate about all things related to the Arab Spring and 21st Century Education. As an 8th grader, Noa gave a TEDx talk about the power of social media. Everyone can think back to their years as a student and recall at least one teacher that stood out as a truly outstanding teacher. We’ve all had that teacher at some point in our lives. It can be really difficult to pinpoint what makes a teacher remarkable. 1. Whether cheering for us on the field or applauding our curtain call, students appreciate teachers that show us they not only care about how we’re doing in their class, but out of it, too. 2. The best teachers are not always the ones teaching the core classes. 3. My 6th grade Life Science teacher was an incredible teacher. 4. I had an unforgettable teacher during my freshman year of high school. In the end, the best teachers aren’t always the ones doling out the best grades.
