Highlighting Kingston Schools With Male Teachers On Staff
“Everyone who remembers his own education remembers teachers, not methods and techniques. The teacher is the heart of the educational system.” – Sidney Hook
Effective strategies used to 'teach or reach the male brain' by male teachers
Most of the boys in the inner-city long for a male-figure in their lives. I use my relatability as a male, in my lessons and build rapport with them. By getting on their level, this allows them to be more receptive to the lessons at hand.
I find the use of Project-Based Learning a very effective strategy when teaching male students, as the are more focused and involved when they have a task of interest to perform. They are also captivated when a game or some other competitive learning activity is brought into the lesson.
Incorporate games and competition in learning activities. Use technological means such as videos and interactive PowerPoint presentations
