Who is good teacher? : Who is good teacher? Slide 2: A teacher should make his lessons interesting so that you don’t fall asleep. 2. A teacher should love his/her job. If he/she really enjoys it, that’ll make the lessons more interesting 3. I like the teacher who has his own personality and don’t hide it from the students so that he is not only a teacher but a person as well- and it comes through the lessons. 4. I like teachers who has lots of knowledge, not only of his subject. 5. A good teacher is an entertainer and I mean that in a positive sense, not a negative one. Slide 3: 6. It is important that you can talk to the teacher when you have problems and you do not get along with the subject. 7.

Slide 7: Small Group Teaching Slide 8: Small group teaching is not lecturing to a small group. It is facilitating the participation of the group in an inquiry or problem-solving activity. In small group teaching the instructor becomes a facilitator promoting collaborative learning. The facilitator concentrates on creating an environment in which all participants collaborate and become mutually supportive to enhance each individual’s learning. Slide 9: Small group teaching is optimal for active learning, which is becoming regarded as an essential element at all levels of education and which typically is not present in the traditional passive lecture.
