how can teachers help

 Teachers that were most effective figured out how to engage students at every turn. From the regular thumbs-up/thumbs down to dressing up, from vocabulary scavenger hunts to riddle solving, their students were immersed in active learning. Some classes even put on plays and other multifaceted, complex productions. 

Teachers can help students achieve this goal by:

  1. Assessing the learning styles of their students, keeping in mind that being different is not inferior. This information can be used to gradually incorporate learning and processing strategies that will help the child develop the skills needed to succeed in school, college, or the job market.
  2. Supporting your students’ social-emotional needs and development, while growing your mindset and confidence to succeed,
  3. Crafting a solid plan for the 1st 30 days, including relationship-building and a clear, consistent approach to classroom management.
  4. Assessment 
  5. Assessment is one of the most important components of education, but not just in the summative or even intermediate sense of the term. Teachers ought to be assessing on a regular basis -- what is commonly called formative assessment -- in order to ensure that the students are grasping the content and are able to demonstrate their mastery in some fashion. 

    Whether they use quick, simple checkings for understanding, such as choral response or head nodding, or something a bit more elaborate (like having students complete a one minute paper or a graphic organizer), teachers need to be collecting regular evidence of student learning before simply moving forward. And if the feedback demonstrates confusion, then a re-teaching (partial or full, to some or all students) is in order.
