TEN BASIC PRINCIPLES OF GOOD TEACHING

Author: SIR. ERIC WIREKO (EXAMINER)
1. Faith.
Just as faith moves mountains, faith in your students can move them to heights never imagined.
2. Harvesting.
Make each and everyday a great student harvest. Refuse to let your pupils fail.
3. Faithfulness.
Insist that your students honestly perform every little act. The way they enter the room, way they keep their desks, the way they head their papers, the way they dress-all such things should be done with élan. Getting the little things right makes the bigger things easier as well.
4. Don’t be a Judas.
Never betray the confidence of your students. You are their teacher as some of the time, but you should be their friend all of the time. So, for example, never write negative comments on their records that could damage them in the future; instead, take the time to polish every mind until the luster shines through. Today’s problem student might become tomorrow’s leader.
5. Teach even the least of them.
Make sure you teach every child, regardless of his or her
background and family conditions, is the son or daughter of a Harvard or Yale graduate.
6. Teach with passion.
Teach because you can’t help it, not for what you are paid.
Teach with devotion, dedication, and a steel-trap determination that will not allow your students to plunge into mediocrity or failure.
7. Teach to get their hearts so as they can always enjoy the class and never miss it for once.
Teach so well and so diligently that even the most recalcitrant student drops his or her indifference and becomes motivated.
8. Teach as if your life depended on it.
Positive attitudes are catching. When you make your lesson plan come alive with what I call hot teaching, every child becomes a winner.
9. Come as the one who is there to save students, not fail them.
Any ordinary teacher can fail a student. A good teachers makes the poor pupils good and the good students very intelligent. If others have declared a child a failure, dare to say, “I will be the
one to save you, child.
10. Never give up.
If you first don’t succeed with a child, keep trying, knowing that one more effort can make all the difference.
