[Channel-talkchemistry] Reactions in chemistry workshop #7

Classroom climate can take several years to develop. I have my student evaluation at the end of each year. I keep a file of those and I drag them out every year to remind myself what I have improve on and what I still have to work on. "...outstanding teachers makes class feel relaxed and makes the class participate..." is a balance between setting high standards and holding students to those standards and developing a classroom atmosphere where students feel safe to ask and answer questions. I have had both my daughters in class and I always appreciate their feedback. Some of those personal traits that are important in good teaching include being patient and fair while being enthusiastic and calm. A lot of the work my students do involve working in cooperative groups. I have found over years that students working together can be very effective in explaining complex chemistry topics.
