I have been an English teacher for about ten years. I am crazy about English and I have deep love for my job. Of course, I am willing to pay close attention to my teaching in order to make my teaching better and better while making my students learn better and better, in which way, I have a sense of accomplishment instead of burn-out. The following are some of my studying awareness and practice attempt. I hope they can activate the enthusiasm of some teachers who love English and students and are willing to make a progress on teaching.
Teachers need to pay attention to their own demonstration.If we want our students to learn English well and be interested in it, we teachers should make ourselves an example as well as improving our professional quality. So when doing our regular teaching well, we must be never too old to learn. We must try our best to find some excellent software ,learning resources and professional books to improve our professional level and abilities.
Picture 1 is the curriculum I learn every day in my cellphone which make my oral English further improved and some songs can put into my regular teaching. Meanwhile, I have accumulated more and more vocabulary. Picture 2 is my learning resources preserved in the baidu web disc. When finishing having classes and checking the homework, I will watch a brilliant lesson and make notes, then improve my teaching according to my students’ level. I benefit a lot unconsciously and get a good teaching grade from some
Picture 3 and 4 are some books which are helpful to my teaching and professional development I read after the class. For example, I want to write a teaching thesis. I get a topic about vocabulary teaching，then I read the two books of picture 5 and 6 carefully and find some points which are helpful to my thesis. If we write a thesis which has no theory to support, the sentences can’t be persuaded by others. Before, I didn’t know how to and what to write and write with shallow points. Now I know how to assure a topic ,find some materials from professional books . I make efforts and get some good results.
It is not an excellent teacher who just knows to give a lesson instead of making a teaching reflection. I am not satisfied with just giving lessons. I like to calm down to take simple notes about the problems the students face and some good ideas the students are interested in. After that, I will think about my teaching deeply and make a progress. I accumulate my teaching experiences in this way. No matter how much the students love my classes, at least it is a complete and full-of -heart class. What the students have done to me is good teaching grades and good works which can develop their abilities.
After having some good ideas through reflection and summarizing, I will put them into practice to find out whether they are effective or not. So I will assign some creative homework which can develop the students’ abilities beyond the regular ones. Some students have finished very well out of my expectation. They are infinitely potential and wait for us to explore. Through such open homework, their thinking becomes more open and their learning abilities become stronger. They learn to use the knowledge instead of inflexible knowledge.
Don’t let our teaching stop here. Let’s go on making efforts to make our teaching flowers blossom with our heart’s content.
