After thoroughly reading through this unit I have noted that eye contact is very important. As we all know it is very difficult to speak to someone who is always looking elsewhere or someone who looks us in the eye all of the time. We are aware that eye contact can convey messages. Your voice should have the correct clarity, range, variety or projection in making your instruction/explanations understood to all members of the class. The greater the variation of the voice, the greater the effectiveness. Also, gesture,grouping students, classroom arrangement, writing on the board, giving individual attention, teacher/student talking time, giving instructions, establishing rapport, maintaining discipline e.t.c. Contrary to popular belief, it is not true that you have to be an extrovert be a good teacher in the classroom. Some good teachers are very low-key, while other teachers, both lively and amusing, are regarded as nothing more than entertainers. You will find your own style of teaching through practice in the classroom. However, for a class to be able to learn effectively the teacher must be able to inspire confidence in the students. We must know when to be firm and when to leave the students alone. In other words the teacher must be flexible and change the role according to the activity and situation without being dominant or leaving the students uncertain. Classroom Management is the skill of organizing and managing the class, having a friendly, relaxed manner and maintaining discipline.
