Last ETM3,we listened Mr.M's lecture. He is a junior high school's English teacher and he taught us many important things.So today, I would like to introduce some things what I learned from his lecture and to think what shoud I prepare for teaching practice in September.
First Mr.M said that a person who can greet everyone is very important.Besides, a person who can speak to everyone,can be respons in word and deed is important. It is natural thing and common sense as an adult,but I think it is difficult to show these things one's attitude actually.
Moreover,he taught us 3 important things.
1)Making a smile
He said students keeps away from a person who doesn't make a smile.I think so too. In the past, I saw a book [90% people judge someone by appearances] once, especially students do it. In my experience, I memorized that I
also judged teacher by it.When I think of it now it was very rude but I memorized that I didn't approach a teacher with a frown grimance.So when I heard it, I thought face, especually expression is very inportant for teacher.
2)A person with common sense
According to one ALT's speaking, many teacher have no common sense because they doesn't go out the school. I think it is sad and shame things. I thought teacher is a model for students and I still think it. If the model has no common sense, he/she is not qualified to teach their students. Now that give a lesson, we have to try not only improve the teaching ability skill, but also try to be a person with common sense.
3)Making efforts as well as I can
After all it is very important thing and I think so too. He said "If you make a mistake, we doesn't scoll you.If anithing but things is not making efforts." I thought that we are student teacher must succeed in teaching practice and teacher daoesn't forgive our mistake. so I was afraid to make a mistake. However when I heard his lecture, I found making a mistake is important to success. So I changed my mind!I don't have nothing to be afraid of making a mistake! BUT!! I try to make efforts as well as I can!! Now you come to mention it, I made a many mistakes until now. But I tried to make efforts, I could be succeed one way or another. [Failure teaches success.] So Let's make efforts! Don' be afraid of making a mistake!!
Finally, I would like to present to reader 2 things.1:It is important how to make students move.
Mr.M said that teacher shoudn't a lot of explain but on the other hand they have to make stuednts move. So it is important to make them do independently. That is difficult for me but I think it is very diificult to teach and educate them.2:It is also important to have student's outlook.
It helps for teacher what they have to do now. Also I think we have to have it to myself.
This time I wrote many things that I heard and I want to write. Actually, I learned a lot of things more ade more. So I'll write anothethings in my another blog.
I forgot!! Finally!! Teacher doesn't have enogh time!! Accorfimg to Mr.M's lifestyle, he wakes up early, goes to school in early time, gives lessons, checks the students HW,attends club activities qnd teaches then, preparets for next class and so on! Teacher can't have time for tnem!!So I thought we have to think and praxtice hoe to use time from now!!!!!
Thank you very much!!!!!
