Teaching is a calling too. And I’ve always thought that teachers in their way are holy-angels leading their flocks out of darkness. ~Jeannette Walls
Students often experience low self-esteem in classroom due to various reasons, such as, highly competitive environment which makes them doubt their ability, fear of failure, and negative messages being delivered by the teachers to them which holds them back from working at their full potential. This session will focus on how teachers can modify their traits in the classroom and establish a collaborative environment of the class to aid students in maintaining a healthy self-esteem which plays a key role in defining their performance in class.
The workshop will enable the teachers to:
- UNDERSTAND the importance of ensuring a sound self-esteem in students
- CREATE a safe space for students to perform at their best
- EVALUATE behaviours that can affect the self-esteem of students negatively
- RESTRUCTURE their methods of communication with students
