Tips for Teachers

  • Realise that knowledge is power and the key to success.
  • Studies are as important as watching TV and playing.
  • Be organised so that both work and play go hand in hand.
  • Gather details about different courses so that you have a wide choice of careers.
  • Choose a course you are comfortable in, not one that might bring in more money!
  • Never dismiss outright the views and suggestions of elders.
  • Never be disheartened by setbacks. Remember they are stepping stones to success and life always gives you a second chance.

How do you cope with exam pressure?

In every household, the period from January to March witnesses stress time. No parties, late evenings or outings. What is the reason for this? Well, it's exam time! Children and parents are stressed out.

One wonders about what causes stress in parents when it is actually the child who is appearing for his or her exams.

Listed below are some of the causes of stress in parents:

  • Parents' high expectations from their children.
  • Poor disciplining, leading to poor study habits in children.
  • Discrepancy between the ability of the child and parental expectations.
  • Exam phobia and other anxiety symptoms in the child.

For building writing skills in students just do the following:

  • Brainstorming: Make students think over topics and talk about their topics, collect relevant information and ideas from others. Tell them to organize the idea and then allow them to speak about their chosen topic.
  • Composing: Students must compose the story first time.
  •  Revising: Make them read again what they have written, allow responses from teachers, other students, parents and others. Teachers should give feedback and give ideas on how they can improve the write up.
  •  Editing: Check spellings, grammar, punctuation. Make sure the write-up by the student is legible.
  • Cover all Subjects: Allow students to select topics from all the subjects.
  • Realise that all children are gifted. The areas they excel in may vary from student to student.
  •  Don't ignore extra-curricular talents. They might lead to great careers too!
  •  The way a student is brought up is what shapes the future.
  • When a student misbehaves constantly, try and find reasons behind it.
  • Never insult students, and particularly so in front of classmates.
  •  Consider your students' views and suggestions.
  •  Take care of your students' emotional growth, which is often neglected.
