1.Praise can do more harm than good

Giving out the wrong kind of praise can be harmful to students.  Numerous studies conducted by education experts including Carol Dweck professor of psychology at Stanford University and Auckland University professors John Hattie and Helen Timperley, have observed this. Research has also found that teachers can do things well or badly, and some methods are not appropriate in all circumstances.

2.Instruction matters

The quality of teaching has a big impact on the achievement of students from poorer backgrounds and effective questioning and assessment are at the heart of great teaching. This consists of making sure you give enough time to children to practice their new skills and introduce their learning progressively.

10. Build relationships with colleagues and parents

A teacher’s professional behaviour, including supporting colleagues and talking with parents, also had a moderate impact on students’ learning. The report said that there may not be a direct link with these practices and student achievement, but to capture a broad definition of good teaching they should be included.
