Effective teaching approach by my teacher

Post by lcybren on Tue Mar 28, 2017 9:51 am

The most effective lesson I have had would be the one conducted by my Literature teacher. We were going through the book 'I am David' by Anne Holm. The story revolves around David's experiences in a concentration camp and the struggles he had to go through in order to locate his mum. What made the lesson interesting was the fact that my lit teacher had similar experiences where her grandparents were survivors of a concentration camp. The pictures/video clips/stories she shared about concentration camps and the struggles were so real. There were many touching moments where she shared her personal stories. That helped to set the context to the story and made us feel more for the characters involved. Because connections were made, the boring and dry lit text came alive for the students. We looked forward to her lessons because we wanted to know the development to the story and what interesting personal stories she would bring to the lesson.

Thanks for sharing!
As a student, it is not the content of the subject that interests me but the stories and experiences of the teacher in relating to the content that would excite me in wanting to learn more. It would be then intrinsic for me to go and find out more on my own about the subject knowledge as I can connect to it. Similarly, I draw the experience to my Uniformed Group as a NPCC Cadet where there were umpteen times I wanted to give up trying if not because of my teacher officers who shared stories of perseverance with me.
Thanks Icybren.
