Effective teaching strategies
The teaching strategy that I noticed being used and I used myself was asking the students what they wanted to do or if they new how to play the game that I had named. This makes them feel that we as teachers are listening and care what they have to say. I noticed when I played a game that they wanted to play for a few minutes they were ready to try a new game that I would explain. Also having the students come into a circle around the person that is teaching so he/she can explain the game was very effective. Breaking them up into teams first seems to get the students distracted and they don’t listen to instructions as well.
