There are students with different needs. Every teacher comes across different types of students. All the students are different from each other, all the students have different needs, they all want a different type of environment at the institutes. Not all the students manage to blend into the environment. There are some students who fail to fit in and find it hard to understand things happening around them. They stay isolated which also affects their studies. On the other hand, there are students who are lazy, who like to waste time. They like to spend time with their friends, bunk classes and often ignore things happening in their classes. They miss classes and score low on the exams and the teachers are often blamed for their poor performance, when, in fact, the students are the ones at fault. The teachers, in this case, have to handle their reputation. They have to find a way to bring these students to better grades. They have to try different techniques to incline these students towards studies. Are you a teacher looking for ways to connect with these students and get better results.
Here are a few ways to handle these types of students.
1) Reward them
Let’s talk about an individual at random, who wouldn’t want to get rewards? Every individual around the globe expects to get rewarded, the same goes for the students. The students expect to be rewarded, they want to get rewarded for giving good performances. To bring lazy students close to studies, you should reward them if they attend the classes or achieve good grades in their exams. This will motivate them to attend your classes and also study hard because they’ll be looking forward to getting the reward from you. Keep the reward as a secret and try to make things interesting to get better results.
2) Build connection
Students who fail to blend in the environment need a sense of belonging. To incline them towards studies, you should try to organize events or workshops to help them connect with other students. Assign tasks to groups and give them a chance to know people around them.
