Teaching : Important Factors Of Affecting Teaching Part 2
Teaching : Factors influencing teaching concerning the pupil
Physiological and psychological factors of students are factors affecting teaching. Each individual studying in the classroom has different qualities and requires different teaching methods. When teaching in the classroom, it is necessary to take into account the intelligence of the students, the ethnic groups of the students, the race, beliefs and socio-economic status of the students.
Each student’s interest in the class is also different, which depends on their ability, attitude, motivation, mental health and aspiration for their life goals.
Maturity, age, motivation, prior learning, intelligence, mental health, physical need, diet and nutrition, attention and interest, goal setting, and aspiration level are factors that influence instruction regarding students.
1. Supporting Materials
Teachers have their own support system that consists of tools that help them improve their teaching capacity. Various teaching aids help to analyze the area in which students are not interested or do not perform well. This also helps them adopt effective strategies to teach students. Learning support materials are effective tools for:
Student ratings and scores
Teaching strategies and lesson plans
Standards and benchmark
Effective use of traditional and modern tools
2. Teaching facilities
With the teaching aids available, teachers can cover a wide area of learning. It has many benefits such as differentiating instruction, reducing anxiety, helping students improve reading comprehension skills, illustrating or reinforcing a skill, and presenting information effectively.
3. Learning environment
The learning environment is where the student learns and the teacher teaches. The classroom environment is a learning environment for students that plays an important role in the learning process. Both students and teachers are affected by the classroom environment. The learning environment is well maintained by active participation in learning, student concentration, teachers’ focus on student behavior, etc. The learning environment must be positive.
4. Socioeconomic factor
The socio-economic background of students and teachers indirectly affects the learning process. It shows the differences in the level of thinking of pupils and teachers towards others. The economic factor of students is sometimes dominated by teachers and its impact on the quality of teachers’ teaching.
Expectation is a very common external factor influencing teaching. It affects both students and teachers. Every parent has some expectations with their children because they want their children to get a quality education and learn the maximum when they start school.
This has a psychological impact on students and sometimes leads to stress and debilitation.
So, parents should involve students in the learning process in such a way that they make the process easier for them instead of burdening them.
Teachers should also not be subjected to the pressure of expectations.
Factors affecting teaching related to the institution
The administrative policy of the institution is followed by the teacher, which affects the learning process. There may be a chance that the teacher wants to lecture in the way he likes to do, but he cannot use his own method because the rules of the institute do not allow it. This leads to teacher dissatisfaction which slows down the learning process. It should not be the case that the teacher should allow as they wish, but effective lesson planning and consultation is required in accordance with the policy of the institute to improve the learning path.
The teaching and learning process depends on various factors and they are interdependent. The institution is one of the factors that directly influence the teaching process.
The National Council for Educational Research and Training published Core Teaching Skills in 1982, which emphasized the following teaching skills.
Writing learning objectives
Creating a lesson introduction kit
Introducing the lesson
Structuring class questions
Query delivery and distribution
Using teaching aids
Variation of the stimulus
Support for student participation
Using the board
Achieving lesson closure
Assessment of student progress
Diagnosing pupils’ learning disorders and taking corrective measures
Microteaching involves a micro-element that simplifies the complexity of the teaching process. It focuses on the use of specific teaching methods and offers opportunities to practice teaching in controlled conditions.
There are many factors affecting teaching based on teacher-student relationship, socio-economic conditions, school policies and motivations, etc.
