Becoming a great teacher

There are many different aspects that make a great teacher and below we look in t a few of them.

Subject knowledge – Research backs up the theory that to be a great teacher you need to know what you are teaching. You need to be aware of the different subject matters and topics you are going to need to teach and spend some time learning about them. It more you know the easier it will be to help the children learn and to answer any questions they may have.

Often how well a pupil picks up a subject or a task is down to how well the instructions were that they were given. To give your pupils the best chance to you need to ensure that you always give clear and precise instructions and that you check if anyone has any questions prior to starting the work that you have set for them.
