How well a student performs doesn’t depend on a single factor. There are several reasons which collectively add to the good results.
Understanding the subjects, preparing and reviewing the data, staying organized and much more are a must have in a student’s list. If he is weak in any of these, it directly impacts his academic potential.
Here are listed top 5 ways to boost their learning capabilities:
1. Relate learning to life:
Students are very curious to know the answer of every ‘why’. And if you don’t have the answer, you might lose your credibility. For example, if a student asks ‘Why do I have to learn math?’; never answer him with ‘because you need to do so’, or something similar. Instead relate things from real life, like you need to learn math to calculate and manage your pocket money.
2. Be a story-teller:
Another thing which attracts the interest of students is the story. Although, you should never go for long stories, but an appropriately timed story can do wonders in encouraging them. You can always give them examples from your life or someone’s other life, whenever required.
3. Give them a choice:
You need to understand that every child is different. Some like to study in a group, while some love to make it alone. Group discussions, combined learning are great ideas, but if they are not comfortable, don’t enforce them. It is their choice, let them go for it!
4. Laughter is the best medicine:
Not only for health, but it is a perfect way to boost the learning skills of students too. There is a lot you can do. Start with nicknames for the students, ask them to help you make up their nicknames. The more you enjoy more your students will learn. Yes, when you enjoy your work, you stay happy and which help you making the students learn in a better way. You can keep some extra minutes for playing some jokes, acts, or a short dance to enhance their interest.
5. Make them organize:
Planning and organization are the two key ingredients of success for anyone. Start them from the school. Make your students learn the importance of being organized, not delaying work for the next day, balancing sports and academics, and much more.
