Isn’t it true that great teachers are born not made? We say “not at all”. With the guidance of the courses in this series, you can take your teaching to a new level; one that brings the highest degree of satisfaction to yourself and your students. Great teachers are remembered not for the knowledge they impart but for the way they encourage and lift their students’ achievement, not just in a subject, but in the important skills of living a fulfilling life. These skills of happiness, of inspiration, compassion, curiosity and resilience are essential for both the learner and the teacher. This course will bring research to inform along with techniques and activities to imbue your delivery of required curriculum with the essence of greatness-both yours and your students’.
In this course, teachers will cultivate classroom learning through engaging student curiosity while respecting the order of their school.
The teacher will be:
1. Aware of the hurdles in the school environment that inhibit student curiosity.
2. Equiped with activities that promote student curiosity.
3. Able to increase classroom inquisitiveness without creating school disturbance.
