                         Teacher and blackboard for studying

Teaching aids play an important role in studying. There are many teaching aids that the teacher uses in the classroom, but two main teaching aids are the teacher and blackboard. However there is someone who doesn’t know how to use herself/ himself and blackboard as useful teaching aids.To use it to bring the most effectively, the teacher needs to have special techniques for example:

        For teacher as a teaching aid, the teacher is the most important one in providing knowledge for students, so during the lesson she/ he should have strategies to make his/ her lesson more effective. Teacher’s voice shouldn’t be too loud or too small. The teacher should assure that the student can hear what she/ he are saying or teacher’s voice should change according to different parts of the lesson or sometimes he/ she had better go around the classroom so that students can listen clearly, Besides this, the teacher should use a variety of facial expressions when expressing something. It depends on the circumstances of the lesson. Moreover the teacher should use various guestures: arms and hands are very important. They can be used to describe teacher’s action to help students understand according to the period of the lesson.              Another point is that the teacher should speak every time in the classroom, which makes students not to have time to chat with their friends.They will concentrate on the lesson better. In addition, the teacher has to act as a singer, artist and actor for example for teaching english, the teacher sometimes should use English songs to teach english for students, or she/ he should draw real objects to help them learn effectively, or sometimes the teacher should play role to help them understand the lesson clearly. Moreover, the eyes contact of teacher should be in friendly way, Which makes students love the teacher and be fond of the lesson. Besides this, the teacher should use flexible body language. There is something that can’t express by verbal communication, teacher should use  his/ her body language to show his/ her ideals

    Another useful teaching aid is blackboard. Besides the teacher, the blackboard is a second necessary tool in whatever class. The teacher can write something on it when teaching the lesson for example the blackboard is the place where the teacher present the main content of the lesson, stick the picuters or flashcards… So to use it the most effective the teacher should also have strategies for instance: when the teacher writes something on the board ,she/ he shouldn’t  cover what he/ she is writing. She should stand one side and go back to the class, which helps the teacher can observe the class

     Besides this, the teacher should devides the blackboard into 3 parts: the teacher should write important information in  the first two part. The other is to write the examples to help students to understand the lesson. Moreover, the teacher should write in straight line, which will help students observe clearly to write down the lesson on notebook easily. it also helps students to more concentrate

On the lesson

      To sum up, Teacher herself/ himself and blackboard are the most two important  teaching aids in teaching, so The teacher should maximine the effecience of herselve/ himself  and the blackboard as two important teaching aids  to teach students

  1. Hello Sen!
    First of all I want so say thanks for your post writing. It is really helpful for us in our teaching work. Your writing mainly mentions the role of two teaching aids: teacher and blackboard in our teaching. Interestingly, you share about what teacher should do or shouldn’t do in the class in order to have a good lesson. You also emphasise how to write the lesson on the board clearly and easy to understand. All of your information is very necessary for us. However, I think you should add some information about other role of teacher and blackboard to make it more various. For example: you can share the other role of teacher are to be an actress, a manager in the class or so on. Blackboard can be used for showing students’ homework, an ideal stage for students or so on.Your writing is good, I only want to add a little bit to make it more perfect. Finally, I hope that you will be a good teacher of English in your future. Thanks for sharing with us

  2. hi Sen. I have read your post and many thanks for your useful sharing. I can see that you understand the function of blackboard and you can use it for variety purposes as well as being a flexible teacher. however, I wonder why you just focus on the function of teacher and the functions of blackboard you only talk about it less. it would be better if you can talk about it deeply and clearly. for example, you can give some examples for the functions of blackboard like it is the stage for students and teachers to perform or it is the students’ exhibition. moreover, that’s good if you can give more functions of teachers like actress or singers, dancers… that’s my ideas.
