Many beginning teachers gather activity ideas and store them in a resource file in the classroom, so they can keep track of the activity ideas they come across. The teacher lectures the students on a particular subject, through lessons that build on students' prior knowledge and moves them toward a deeper understanding of the subject at hand.
BEING A MODEL, PROVIDER, AND FACILITATOR TO STUDENTS 3 The classroom becomes the place where students strive to build their literacy skills. Instilling this desire goes beyond lessons taught in English class. There are amazing stories to be told in all areas of the curriculum, such as Science, History, the Arts and Social Studies. All subjects offer tales that can be inspirational to students. There are plenty of ways to do that as a school. For example, create “live” assignments based on what they have read as worksheets about what they have just read can dampen their enthusiasm. The students can write stories about what happens next or discuss in class what they think the reading meant. Having them engage with the story can help reinforce what they just read and improve reading skills. Developing multiple ways for students to build reading skills helps them overcome these obstacles on their own. Every word they learn on their own boosts their confidence in their literacy skills. Teacher as a Facilitator The teacher is one who facilitates or interacts with their students. They create sharing experiences and build a trusting connection with the children while encouraging conversation.
