Tips for teachers
A certain distance must be maintained between the teacher and the student, which must not be violated by both parties.
The student group should have an atmosphere of friendship, creativity and joy, since this group should replace the student’s home for several years. It is necessary to support the desire for scientific research and knowledge in the student group.
Typically, a student who has committed an offense has many reasons to justify himself. An experienced teacher must skillfully destroy these arguments with the help of public opinion of the collective, arouse the student’s desire to improve. Guilt is a sense of responsibility, and its upbringing is an urgent task of the teacher.
It is necessary to teach students the art of polemics, participating in discussions, while showing tact in relation to each other. It should be made clear that it is the statements made by the students that are criticized, not the student himself. The logic of the dispute requires arguments, evidence, and not peremptory emotions or categorical judgments.
Convincing students of the practical importance and usefulness of work is one of the elements of building relationships. When assigning something to a student, you should convince him that this is not done because of the lack of personal time of the teacher, but because he can do it no worse than the teacher. We must be equally fair to all students, evaluate their work objectively, based on specific cases, and not out of personal sympathy, try to find a common language with students, common interest.
