Creative Teaching: 5 Ways to Engage Your Students
Thursday, 25 March 2021

A classroom is full of students with differing personalities and it can be difficult to engage all students with traditional classroom teaching. Introducing creative methods can encourage kids to pay attention and will motivate them to learn. Here are a few great ways to add variety to your teaching and engage your students.

Interactive Learning

 
If your students are looking lifeless and disengaged, it is time to take another approach. Introduce interactive activities to the classroom to perk them up. Interactive learning can include the use of visuals and audio, hands-on exercises, student-to-student interaction, and teacher-to-student interaction. By engaging different parts of the body and stimulating the mind in a different way, interactive learning can help kids retain information in the long term. Activities can vary from role-play to peer review sessions. Interactive games, such as bingo, can also be modified for specific subjects.
 

Adopt a Pet

 
Introducing an animal into the classroom can stimulate learning in young people and can offer a hands-on learning experience. Teach your students the value of caring for living organisms and how to be responsible in terms of their upkeep. In a child’s formative years, compassion and responsibility are essential. Looking after an animal will teach young children about awareness and respecting life. A classroom pet can also be used to spark an extra level of interest in various aspects of academic teaching. For example, in English class you could ask your students to write a short story about the classroom hamster, and in geography your students could explore the origins of the hamster.
 
Alternatively, adopt a pet externally at a local farm or a zoo. Nowadays, many zoos offer a live streaming video so your students can see what their pet lion is getting up to at the end of a class.
 

Fundraising

 
Creating a fundraising event can raise the school spirit while teaching students a number of fundamental life values. Fundraising involves planning, setting a target, being creative, and working together as a team to achieve a common goal. Some school fundraising ideas include a cook-off, a field day, and hosting a drive.
 

Creative Field Trips

 
Taking your students on a creative field trip will expand their learning outside of the usual four walls and will offer them a unique learning experience. Field trips can be tied into different subjects. A trip to a national park gives your kids the chance to learn about different types of flora and fauna, while visits to historical sites enable them to immerse themselves in another time period.
 

Get Technical

 
Technology can be integrated into traditional teaching to boost student interest levels and update the classroom learning experience. Replacing your old whiteboard with a smartboard allows you to teach your students in an elevated, interactive way. They can be used for photos and videos, and are ideal for presentations.
 
If your students are old enough to use social media, a social profile for the classroom can offer your students a new way to access classroom material. Social media profiles can also be used to post assignments and discussion topics, and they also make great homework reminders for forgetful students.
