Talking Indeed!

We do need a lot of active members who have enough knowledge to answer overlooked questions that we just skim over.

Default Teachers

Hello everybody!

I've been a little preoccupied lately - but it's wonderful to see so many of you helping out at the Forums. I think it's a wonderful thing - for students from all over the world to be able to come together to help millions of other students. It is very gratifying to know that there are those who do have the heart to help others. This Forum is a good thing - it demonstrates your kindness and generosity - and it shows the world just how smart you guys and gals are too!

I'm happy to be a part of this. I will tell my ex-colleagues to help too!

Hi Judy

Indeed, in the current world that we live in there is just WAY too much hatred, selfishness and pride. I think if every good person makes an effort to help others in small ways, the world will be a much much better place to live in.

I'm amazed at the intelligence of some of the young scientists here. I'm 33 now. Some of our 12, 16, 18 year olds are demonstrating tremendous analytical and creating thinking. And they communicate well too.

It truly is an honor to be part of this community.

Hi umesh

Great to hear from you. I believe teachers are the most valuable professionals that mankind has. Even though they are not usually paid the most, they should be. If I could have my way, I would make it such that teachers are rewarded the most. Then again, financial reward is not everything and I know lots of teachers are deeply rewarded by seeing their students grow and learn.

I do remember in the past my science teachers used real life objects - for example, a cross section of a flower to explain its innards. Likewise, dissection of frogs.

As for other teaching aids / techniques to explain scientific topics, I can't really help because I'm not a teacher and have no experience.

But I have explained stuff to other people and I can say that a principle that works all the time is to explain things in terms that your students can understand. I have sat in classes of teachers & professors who are *brillliant* - but fail to *connect* to the student - and as a result, sadly, fail as a teacher.

In general, I have valued my teachers who explained things carefully and clearly, putting thought and care into it. That attitude in itself will be recognized by your students and valued deeply (if not immediately).

Judy or other teachers on this board who have experience with teaching aids may be able to share a technique or two on how to explain science.

Hope that's somewhat helpful.

Post Teaching Aid

Well, I know that many elementary students in my community love puzzles and games. It seems that children are very competative these days. If you make it a game, and maybe the winning team will get something like a bonus point on a quiz or test, students get interested and study. Hope this helps!!
