Managing the Class and Students ED104

I've learned the different methods to manage students in the classroom.  How to deal with students with diverse problems.  The different types of test to give the students to help with their learning.


I remember at time when my job had my entire clinic take a day off and go somewhere off campus to do something fun and yet help us team build to be better at our job, and become stronger as a team.  We learned how we can better communicate and talk through things better when we may experience conflict.  Sometimes it's better to problem solve and get better perspectives on how to handle situations, especially when everyone has different personalities.  It was a great idea and the faciliator was very helpful! 

My Teaching Plan on how to become a great instructor !

I plan to become a great instructor by the knowledge i've obtained in this course by acknowledging everyone has a different way of learning objectives and recognizing that not every person has the same learning technique i will also incorporate skills they have used in their everyday life so they can understand better. i will also be adding in some skills that ive learned from past instructors that have gotten me to this point in my career. i plan on overcoming any challenges i face by attacking them head on and speaking to my students regularly asking them how they… >>>

Instructional delivery and assessment are fundamental components of effective teaching.

This may include lectures, group discussions, hands-on activities, multimedia presentations, and cooperative learning.

what is the difference online students and classroom?

Online lessons are usually shorter lesson plans. 

New teacher

As a new teacher I'm going to strive to incorporate more facilitator roles in my classroom. I was taught more in line with the scholar 'sage on a stage' mentality and although I have more experience with mentoring students one on one, I struggle with embodying the facilitator role for large groups of students. Working on more engaging lessons and less lectures is a struggle with trying to meet the objectives within the timeline and also encourage self accountability for the adult students with their own learning. 

Present yourself to be known.

First day present yourself so the class know who you are , then class will participate, once the ice is been broken, begin with the experiences and introduce the class subject, group dynamics keeps the attention and interest on the students.

Preparation & Care

This course was a comprehensive guide to improving teaching pedagogy. Every aspect gave actionable and clear methods to incorporate in the classroom. One of my biggest takeaways was the importance of preparation and care for students. Often academics strip their students of their humanity instead of meeting them where they are and understanding that each student comes into the classroom with lived experiences and intersectionalities. As educators, we need to prioritize making students feel safe and comfortable in the learning environment. That includes making a real connection with students, remembering their names, and more. I include various ice breakers in… >>>


In the first class meeting I give each student an index card and they write their names and the reason why they are taking my class and their favorite things. Then each student will speak to the class of what they have written on the card. The students and I get to know each of them.

Back to Basics

Improving learning

I was surprised at how much of this I already use in the classroom. It still helps to be flexible and adjust your methods to improve learning with the students.
