Our job as a teacher is to advantage as many students as possible everyday. It doesn’t mean your students should have the highest test scores, or you have to be the best math teacher, or all your class should have a 100% attendance rate. These things take care of themselves. But How do we make our learners passionate?
Well here’s the surprise—it doesn’t have to do with subject matter expertise. It actually is about understanding your role as a facilitator in the 21st-century classroom.
Another example is turning your students into problem solvers and giving them a problem 🧩 to resolve on their own. One good problem case would be what would be the best seating arrangement for our class and why.
The idea is to expand the reach of your teaching to sustain a healthy classroom environment and to ensure the ability of individuals to fulfill their potential. It is important to take our role as teachers beyond teaching our subjects.
