Teaching and Effective Communication

Teaching and Knowledge

Effective communication is an import ant requisite to climb the ladder of success, be it at personal or professional level. Teaching demands good communication skills, along with the knowledge of the subject. If you are unable to teach what you know, students tend to be less involved and lose inspiration to learn. As a teacher or facilitator in class one should be able to communicate the subject content clearly and precisely. He/she should be motivated to speak up his/her viewpoints in class and raise questions. The aim of teacher talk is to deliver information and instructions in clear, unambiguous ways. So structuring talk in the classroom to achieve your objectives is a really important factor in establishing good teacher student communication.
