How to start your teaching well?

When I was a new English teacher at The Junior High School , I usually started the lesson with certain rule. With high motivation burned I forced my students to recall all the rule based on my lesson destination. I did it every time I taught them in all classroom that I was in. In teaching learning activity, I wrote some problems that I found in a small piece of paper.

Based on the observation, I found that the students felt sleepy and sleepy, went the rest room and disturbed one another. If it happened continuously, I could not imagine how poor my English teaching was. Finally, I tried to use the new strategy. here are the steps that I apply:

Begin teaching
Use visual pictures concern with the topic that you teach. For example; 3 students in different height, 3 books with different total pages in each.

Process teaching
a. Explains the adjective or adverb for the subject that comparing
b. Count number of syllable that the subject has
c. Write the sentences based on the degree of the subject. Remember! teacher must introduces them with : affirmative, comparative and superlative sentence.

End teaching
a. Ask one or two students to write the degree of comparison sentence in the board.
b. Conclude students work. Then, tell them the result.

How to know your objective is obtained?
In order to have a real students’ achievement of the objective, the teacher must give them assignment that they do. Teacher gives two to five easy and different types of regular and irregular adjective or adverb. Remember, Teacher must give a clear instruction before the students do their task. At the end of their work, teacher must scores their work. Then, report the score to them.
