4.3 Communicates Effectively

4.3  The teacher communicates effectively with students.

  • Speaks fluently and precisely.
  • Puts ideas across logically.
  • Uses a variety of verbal and non-verbal techniques.
  • Gives clear and explicit instructions.
  • Incorporates humor to enhance learning.

Throughout this year, I have shown this by:

  • Creation of student checklist
  • Development of an idea in students’ words
  • Hand signals for students
  • To-do lists on board
  • Instructions written, explained and reviewed
  • Joking with students
  • Making writing fun by modelling and reading co-created work in fun ways to improve
  • Relating to prior knowledge
  • Review of concepts by creating anchor charts, posters and other visuals
