Probably, the most obvious ways to raise a classroom charisma is to increase the amount of active learning in a class. You will find it easier to keep students engaged during the most difficult times of a year, but you’ll find that your students will retain information with greater ease and with more success.
How to gain active learning
Have students lead conferences with one another and with you. When students take lead, their interest and confidence soars. Prepare a guidelines set that motivates them to take lead in designing effective conferences and after that allow them to assume liability for their role as conference facilitators.
When you’re delivering instruction, pause frequently and have students write a synthesis of what you’ve said in the previous 3-5 minutes. There are various effective ways for students to create brainstorms of ideas. Working with couples or in small groups tends to be effective because students stimulate each other’s thought processes. Encouraging students to think out from a box and also to delve into a topic using this method frequently has unexpectedly positive results.
Prepare a list of statements for students to agree or argue or a list of individuals and places to match with information about them. It gives students a set of questions that they’ll answer as they read text. Discuss questions before they read in order to see what information they already have. Help them to see how a questions are aligned with text and how they should answer them.
