What students want

Students usually know what the teacher wants but do you know what your students want? The bold and clever teacher at teachitwrite recently asked her students to share their top requests of teachers on a piece of paper. The top three responses she received were:

*Return graded work on time and with comments. “We didn’t do all of this work for nothing.”

*I want to be able to understand why teachers do things-like why we have certain weights on grade…

*Teachers must have an unfaltering sense of humor.
You can see the entire list at her site teachitwrite.com. Comments like these can give you a great insight into your most challenging students, let your learners know that their thoughts are appreciated, and improve teaching and learning.
