Make Yourself More Effective - Add Power to Teaching

 

Becoming more effective as a teacher implies change and growth. This is necessary to improve achievement for low performing students and provide additional opportunities for high performing students. These improvements can more easily take place if a teacher creates a classroom context for change and growth. Teachers can learn why change is needed, what the most effective teachers think like, how to improve student engagement, and organize a change path for themselves and for their students.

Research about teacher effectiveness tends to focus on value added achievement scores, added knowledge of subject matter,, teacher-student relationships, more diverse curriculum activities, and teacher-student communication. The assumption is that any teacher can improve student achievement by working on these educational variables. While necessary, these variables do not appear to be the only or even the best methods to improve student achievement. Here is why.To be successful at any attempt to improve education and student achievement moving to something should provide methods teachers can use to change themselves and their students. If these changes do not take place student achievement will remain at levels already established. The teacher can learn how to promote change for himself/herself and change students to improve their abilities to learn and succeed. 

This unit focuses on reasons for teachers to change, describes what changes may take place in class structure and student engagement, and provides teachers with methods of changing themselves and their students.
