When can teaching be effective?
Everyday, a teacher
processes information about manythings to support the learning of students . Teachers obtain
useful information about each student’s knowledge, skills,
and progress by way of observing, documenting, analyzing,
and evaluating students’ output.
Teachers assess students based on what they taught.
They know what to look for and how to support students’
development. In each subject area, teachers see what theycan do to teach a particular concept or skill and how thisteaching links to specific objectives. Every activity in theclass is derived from the specific objectives the teacherformulated. Thus, a very effective planning is required. In theprocess, goals are clear and shared by all and students areactive and engaged. Teachers plan meaningful experiences to
engage students’ minds and bodies in learning experiences
throughout the day in interest areas, small and large grouptimes, daily routines, and long-term studies.
“A teacher had not taught at all if students learnednothing”.
The result in an evaluation precisely tells theeffectiveness of teaching.
