In the education classes that I have taken the professors have all made it very clear on how we as future teachers need to present our lessons with such energetic happy upbeat emotions. When presenting the lesson in this way we can make it interesting for our students. In a sense this is how we can help our students be passionate about what we are teaching them. But as one of the articles I read stated that we need to know what our students are interested in or passionate about and create lessons or relate lessons to the students’ interest. I really like how the article said that because it is so true how we need to get our students passionate about learning.
Another thing that was mentioned in one of the articles that I read is how the teachers need to be vulnerable about what they are passionate about and present on things that students like. For example, If a student likes a sports team a teacher needs to find a way to incorporate the sports team into what the students are needing to learn.
One thing that I really liked is how the teacher gave a presentation on something that she was passionate about and taught her students. Then the students would do the same things. When I become a teacher I will use this strategy towards the beginning of the year so that the students can get to know one another and so that I can get to know my students as well. For the younger grades I will have them draw a picture and tell the class what they are passionate about. If I have an upper elementary class I will have them create a power point to present to the class what they are passionate about. This activity is important for teachers to assign at the beginning of the year so that everyone can learn about one another.
When teachers teach lessons and incorporate things into the lesson that students are passionate about it helps students find interest in what is being taught. When we find things that students have interest in we can increase the students learning level and interest. When I become a teacher I will be creating relationships with students to learn what they are passionate about so that I as a future teacher can make me lessons interesting for my students.
