What is your advice about? Duties

  1. Get out and circulate! Speak to many students and find out their interests – building relationships is key to good teaching.
  2. Make sure you ask about their outside hobbies – “Did you win at the weekend?” Or “How was the dance competition?”. It shows you care.
  3. Use duties as an opportunity to praise students, or keep that lesson hook going.
  4. Use duty as a time for them to check learning with peers. “Ask your friends about….”
  5. Have a sense of humour and be a little less “serious”.
