Adrian Bertolini's curator insight, September 20, 2017 8:03 PM
When I ask teachers what their biggest struggles are, one issue comes up on a regular basis: student motivation. You are able to reach many of your students, but others are unreachable. No matter what you try, they have no interest in learning, no interest in doing quality work, and you are out of ideas.

This article talks about the mental and social health of students. This topic is very important to discuss in a school. As administrator, ensure that these topics are being addressed in your school. Many times issues between students are because they don't know how to express their feelings.

Differentiated Instruction

Differentiated Instruction | AST's Professional Development | Scoop.it

Differentiated instruction is an approach to teaching in which educators actively plan for students' differences so that all students can best learn. In a differentiated classroom, teachers divide their time, resources, and efforts to effectively teach students who have various backgrounds, readiness and skill levels, and interests.

A body of research illustrates the self-evident reality that students’ interest in what they’re learning is critical to their achievement. And student engagement, according to various studies, is often a direct result of teacher engagement. When Alice and I decided to teach outrageously, our attitudes about our work improved, which data suggests improved our students’ attitudes.

Seven Classroom Structures That Support Student Relationships

Seven Classroom Structures That Support Student Relationships | AST's Professional Development | Scoop.it

How do we go beyond rapport and establish good teacher-student relationships? How can teachers build relationships on empathy, trust, expectation, support, and understanding with students? Although these questions have no easy answers, thoughtful classroom structure can increase the likelihood of effective teacher-student relationships.

Adrian Bertolini's curator insight, February 12, 2016 8:18 PM

Students appreciate and respond to structure. However, keep in mind that structure does not have to be rigid or stiff. There is plenty of room for fluidity, as with relationships. Bonds strengthen over time, and over shared experiences. If you can develop structure in your classroom, you will also develop strong positive relationships with your students.

Capturing Students' Attention with Compelling Hooks

Capturing Students' Attention with Compelling Hooks | AST's Professional Development | Scoop.it

Captivating students is not always easy. In fact, it is often one of the most difficult tasks a teacher has. With the latest technological gadgets and video games competing for their interest, capturing students' attention is critical. If students are not interested in a lesson or determine that it is irrelevant, why would they pay attention? Why would you pay attention?

Adrian Bertolini's curator insight, January 13, 2016 1:05 AM

Developing a hook is critical to gaining students' interest in a lesson. To create effective, meaningful hooks, use your knowledge of pedagogy, infuse your personality, keep students' needs in mind, and connect the hook to the learning goal.

I'll be a little naughty here.

I think it would change not only school performance but also make for a better society in the long run!
