Some educators might think “how will you keep track with these students?” Is it those students who don’t even pay attention in class or students who can’t even read and calculate or those students who have personal issues? No matter what the problems are, few situations and ways to manage them are discussed below.
Students remain quiet
It might become a frustration when the students are quiet even after asking them simple questions. If you encounter students who always remain quiet in class, try to engage them by asking their opinion and ask them to participate in class by preparing them for a group. This way, they will learn leadership skills and able to reduce the student’s embarrassment when they are helping each other in the group. Sometimes, you can ask the students to email you their questions or problems during or after class. If it is before class, then you will have the opportunity to ask questions them at an appropriate time, meanwhile, if they email you after class, hence you are able to minimize their pressure of being in the classroom.
Treat your students equally by judging them based on the truth. For example, if one student has made a mistake and try to hide it while the other one was blamed for the other friend’s mistakes, so you as an educator should know. Hence, you need to be reasonable where you have to interrogate and hear each student’s opinion. This way, you can make a fair conclusion deal with the problem nicely.
Learn to be a good counselor
Most of the students entrusted their teachers, lecturers, and mentors to guide them throughout their lessons. However, being an educator who can consult students which will make things better where you can guide and provide the student good advice and recommendations. If the student had the problem with studies or having some conflict with his/her friends or families, hence the educators can help by introducing them to a simple program that could improve their personalities and teach them on how to deal with the problem patiently.
“I was late because I couldn’t sleep last night” or “I can’t make it for today’s class because I had to visit my grandmother” or just simply “I suddenly had a flu today.” These are few examples of excuses that students will say just to avoid classes. There are few ways to manage this situation such as giving the students that one particular day for them to finish their work. Hence, by this way the students don’t need the excuse, but they will get a day to complete the works. Furthermore, you can provide punishments for students who submit their late assessment. However, don’t be too strict until it could discourage the students from turning their work.
