What makes a class a good class?

What does your teacher do that makes you want to go to that class?

  1. A good class in my point of view would be a teacher who doesn't give out too much worksheet. Worksheets are good for some days because of the material we will need to study, But worksheets given out practically everyday isn't the type of class I would go to. The classes I would go to would be those that do activity and other stuff other then just paperwork.

  3. I like fun class discussions. It's more interesting when there is productive student interaction.

  4. A good class is one that is fun and also had learning mixed in because we have to sit in 7 classes a day and it gets pretty boring just listening and takeing notes they should be interactive and fun.

  5. Yikes! Seven hours is long- no way could I sit that long!! Are there certain kinds of activities that are less boring..like working in groups with other students, projects, etc.??

  6. I would enjoy doing activities such as video with worksheet. Or maybe a computer related worksheet where us students would go online and research about a certain topic. These are some ways I would enjoy my time in school.
    :P

  13. OOOHHHHH!!!! I love centers-- I think that if wonderful that your teacher uses them in her classroom. Jolly teachers (anyone that is jolly) is fun to be around. What would a jolly teacher do in the classroom that would help you learn better?

  14. My teacher makes me come to school because my class and I make expirements in science. Not only that, you always learn something new in all the days. I REALLY like school to LEARN!!!!

  15. My teacher always puts some type of fun into every worksheet or project. For example, on our Soical Studies project instead of making it on pencil and paper we're going to make a Activ Board flipchart! So far the flipchart is fabulous. P.S. Thanks for listening! From: Housman Elementary

  16. My teacher has a good sense of humor and teases a lot. I know she usually jokes and thats good but when she makes us do more ork if we get too loud and I get it. Yeah but still its good.

  17. I love the Activ Boards- it is so much more fun to work from a flipchart. I am glad you are enjoying this. If you think of any other cool projects, will you let me know?

  20. I think what makes a good class is when your teachers are really nice and funny. I also think that your classmates should be helpful and friendly. This may just be me, but I think everybody would have a great time in class if everyone were nice to eachother.

  27. From my experiences, the best classes are taught by teachers who are energetic about the subject being taught. Also, teachers with a good sense of humor seem to get more attention from the students. For me, humor loosens me up and makes me more willing to participate during class discussions.

    It's nearly impossible to learn from a teacher who doesn't even seem passionate about their own class. I've had teachers who, ever day, just stand at the front of the class and read powerpoints.... it is UNBEARABLE.

  28. I had an LA teacher last year that would always help us and encourage us. Yet, at the same time, he would also harshly enforce the rules. This combination made his class my favorite subject.

  29. There should be no school. As kids we learn run jump play and speak. Once school is introduced we are brainwashed into thinking people have to teach us. We should be motivated to learn ourselves and not go to school for 7 hours a day. Think about it... how much information do we learn in school that we actually will use in a later career. Not much at all. Everything we will use if we are motivated we can learn ourselves.

  30. To have a good class everybody in the class has to learn and at the same time have fun. Each kid learns differently. In order for everybody to learn, everybody has to be taught differently. Teachers should teach everything visually, orally, and interactively. This would allow everyone to understand what is being taught. Teachers also have to make class fun. If class isn't fun kids wont pay attention. The best way to make class fun is give less work, have more discussion, and the teacher should be funny. If a teacher cracks jokes here and there the kids who weren't listening will be angry that they didn't understand the joke. It will make them want to listen and pay attention.
