Rigor, Engagement, Motivation – 4 Simple Steps to Move Your Students to Success

Is your priority to raise awareness and participation in your classroom? Are you in a hurry to increase student performance? Do you want your students to be encouraged? Here are four simple steps that will guide students to success.

Step 1
Raise your expectations.
Do not confuse high expectations with high demands. Standards are what we think students should learn. Expectations are what we think students are learning.

Expect the best of your students and respond accordingly. If you want students to believe that they can be successful then they must know that you, their teacher, believe they are capable. When every other voice in the head says, "No, you can not," you, their teacher, must fight, "Oh yes you can!"

Investigate as an observer what you say and do when communicating with various students. Are you constantly positive to all students? Your words and actions reflect and show your faith to students. If you do not like what you see, change your views.

Step 2
Participate in your students.
The biggest mistake teachers make is that they work too hard and wonder why their students sit back and do not want to participate and take no responsibility. They do not have to. The teacher is doing everything for them. Never say or do something that a student can say or do. Remember that you are the guide on the side, not a writer on the stage.

Participate students by giving them the choice and duties to plan, direct and monitor education and evaluation. Use teaching and learning methods that require students to interact with each other and to participate as an active member of society.

Step 3
Instruct your students.
Thus you have raised your standards and you organize activities and food that require a lot of thinking. Good. Now, stop and think about how to get all your students there. How can you do the workplace and separate your education so that everyone gets a personal way to succeed? Are you dealing with many study times? Are you using peer counseling and cooperation? Are you supporting students by teaching them to learn and learn methods that make them better students? What are you doing to develop their loyalty? This leads us to …

Step 4
Open your instruction.
You can not be strictly based on mechanical rote learning materials. Let's say you want students to understand the business. You can lecture and show PEMDAS and then spread the workbook for students to practice.

OR You can distribute a worksheet and give students different calculators to explore why different types give different answers. (HINT: Some have built a business, and some do not.) Students can then build their own explanations of the order of action.

How many student groups and mathematicians do you think you can lure yourself by issuing calculators? Then imagine their curiosity and participation when they find that the calculators do not agree! These types of controversies surely take them on guard and they just can not help reaching out to cognitive abnormal upheaval.

So, there you have it. Four simple ideas to keep in mind. Think really about each and every one and how you can use them to greatly affect your students. Here they are back.
