War Vs Peace - Sanyogita Dubey

A conflict situation in class can arise when there's disagreement, tension, or misunderstanding between students or the teacher. It could involve arguments, bullying, competition, or differing opinions on topics.

Meaning of the term CONFLICT:
Conflict refers to a disagreement or clash between two or more individuals or groups due to differing interests, opinions, values, or needs. It can arise in various contexts, such as personal relationships, workplaces, communities, or international affairs. Conflict can range from minor disputes to more serious confrontations and can be managed through communication, negotiation, and problem-solving strategies.

Conflict resolution in a classroom setting is essential for maintaining a positive learning environment. Here are some key strategies for handling conflicts in class:

1. Active Listening: Encourage students to listen to each other without interrupting and to acknowledge each other's perspectives.

2. Mediation: If necessary, act as a mediator to facilitate a discussion between conflicting parties, helping them understand each other's viewpoints and find common ground.

3. Teach Conflict Resolution Skills: Educate students on effective communication, problem-solving, and negotiation techniques to help them resolve conflicts independently.

4. Establish Ground Rules: Set clear expectations for behaviour and communication in the classroom to prevent conflicts from escalating.

5. Promote Empathy: Encourage students to consider how their actions and words affect others, fostering empathy and understanding.

6. Address Issues Promptly: Deal with conflicts as soon as they arise to prevent them from escalating and disrupting the learning environment.

7. Encourage Collaboration: Provide opportunities for students to work together on projects or activities, promoting teamwork and reducing potential conflicts.

By implementing these strategies, educators can create a supportive and respectful classroom environment where conflicts are addressed constructively, allowing students to focus on their learning and personal growth.

Affection Vs Rejection - Gitika Kapoor

Nurturing the wounded inner child

"Within every adult, there's a child longing to be loved and accepted."

As a grade 2 teacher with over 10 years of experience, I have had the privilege of witnessing countless children navigate the ups and downs of their young lives. One concept that has become increasingly important to me over the years is understanding the inner child.

The inner child is the vulnerable, sensitive part of ourselves that holds onto past experiences and emotions. When our inner child is hurt, it can manifest in various ways, often impacting our behaviour and relationships. 

One powerful example of this was a student I taught a few years ago who struggled with sharing and forming connections with his peers. Through discussions with his parents and observations in the classroom, I realized that his difficulty stemmed from a sense of abandonment and rejection he felt at home. By approaching him with empathy and understanding, I was able to help him gradually open up and build healthier relationships with his classmates.

Reflecting on my own experiences, I can also recall times when my inner child was wounded and affected my relationships at school. I remember feeling ignored by my peers in elementary school and carrying that sense of insecurity with me for years. It wasn't until I acknowledged and addressed that pain within myself that I was able to form deeper connections with others.

As teachers, it is crucial for us to recognize and support the inner child in our students. By creating a safe and nurturing environment, we can help them heal from past hurts and develop healthy coping mechanisms. This may involve offering a listening ear, providing opportunities for self-expression, or simply showing kindness and understanding.

Ultimately, by understanding and addressing our own inner child, we can better connect with our students and create a more compassionate and supportive learning community. As educators, let us continue to prioritize emotional well-being alongside academic growth, recognizing the profound impact it can have on our students' lives.

Teacher's role in dealing with difficult situations - Paul Puthenveetil Variath

Teacher's role in dealing with difficult situations

Dealing with tough situations is a big part of a teacher's job. Whether it's handling misbehaving students or getting parents involved in their child's education. How teachers tackle these challenges can make a huge difference in creating a supportive learning environment.

When I started teaching, I faced many behavioural issues in my students, ranging from lack of focus to outright defiance. In younger kids, it often showed up as fidgeting or seeking attention, while older students acted out disruptively or pushed back against authority.

At first, I felt overwhelmed trying to solve these problems on my own. However, with guidance from a seasoned colleague, I learned some effective strategies. Setting clear rules and consequences, building positive relationships with students, and using proven classroom management techniques were key. I also found that addressing underlying issues through counselling or support services, and involving parents and school administrators when necessary, made a big difference.

Getting parents on board was another hurdle. Back then, many parents were less involved in their children's education, thinking it was solely the school's responsibility. Parent-teacher meetings often had low attendance, and some parents expected schools to turn their kids into doctors or engineers without much effort on their part.

Changing this mindset took effort. I worked on keeping open lines of communication with parents, keeping them updated on their child's progress and any concerns- involving them in decision-making whenever possible. I also provided resources and tips for supporting learning at home, although I didn't always have control over whether parents used them.

As a principal, I faced similar challenges, but the strategies remained largely the same. Effective communication, empathy, flexibility, and teamwork were crucial in navigating difficult situations and ensuring positive outcomes for students.

On-going training and support within schools are also essential for teachers to develop the skills and resilience needed to handle tough situations effectively. With the right approach and support, teachers can make a real difference in the lives of their students, even in the face of adversity.

Love Learning Vs Hate Learning - Vijeta Wilson

Learning is all about growing and expanding your knowledge. And in this 21st century when we all are digitized it is all part of learning and discovering new things.

Moreover, I actually find love is learning when I see myself in 2010  and compare it with 2024- it has a vast difference. I gained a deeper understanding of the world around me. I explored different subjects and developed new skills. This enhanced my confidence and opened up new opportunities for personal and professional growth.

I think when you love learning you keep exploring and seeking knowledge. For me, learning is like a never-ending adventure that keeps me engaged and excited. But as a matter of fact, learning can sometimes feel challenging or overwhelming and then, learning becomes hatred. 

I am a single parent, and handling stress or being over-pressurized by my professional life makes me feel helpless, affecting my perception of learning. I often get frustrated when it comes to learning in stressful situations. 

But suddenly I felt it's okay to feel frustrated at times, it is also worth considering the benefits that learning can bring. If there are specific aspects of learning that you find difficult or dislike, it might be helpful to explore different approaches or seek support from teachers, mentors or peers. And yes it's true, when you feel over pressurized it's really tough to enjoy learning.

Few tips to make learning enjoyable rather than boring -

  • Find your passion. 
  • Make it interactive or innovative. 
  • Set goals.
  • Embrace curiosity.
  • Connect with others.
  • Take breaks.

So let's keep fueling our love for learning alive and continue to embrace the wonders of knowledge.
Happy Learning!

Love Learning Vs Hate Learning - Chandrani Singh

 Love vs. Hate: Exploring the Dichotomy of Human Emotions

Introduction: Love and Hate represent two powerful and contrasting emotions that have shaped human experiences throughout history. While love is often associated with warmth, compassion, and connection, hate evokes feelings of anger, hostility, and division.

Understanding Love: Love is a multifaceted emotion that encompasses a spectrum of feelings, ranging from romantic love to platonic affection and empathy. It fosters bonds between individuals and communities. 

Here I would like to share my personal experience, of how loving children in the classroom can change the lives not only of the children but of the parents also. It so happened that as the children got their timetable in the new session, one of the parents came to me and said 'Ma'am I don't know how much my daughter will miss you but I am surely going to miss you a lot.' These words of hers touched me a lot. So love promotes understanding and acceptance, nurturing meaningful relationships and enhancing overall well-being. It serves as a cornerstone of human connection, driving resilience, and personal growth.

Manifestations of Hate: Hate, on the other hand, arises from a deep-seated aversion or hostility towards individuals, groups, or ideologies perceived as different or threatening. It is indeed a very intense word that fuels discrimination, and violence, tearing apart the fabric of society and perpetuating cycles of conflict and injustice. I don't want to talk much about hate, though in my personal life, I have been hated by many people.

Love empowers individuals to form deep connections, cultivate empathy, and find meaning and fulfilment in their lives. It promotes emotional resilience, conflict resolution, and personal well-being, serving as a source of strength during times of adversity. In contrast, hate gives rise to feelings of resentment, anger, and isolation, spoils mental health and erodes interpersonal relationships. Its toxic effects can lead to cycles of retaliation and suffering, perpetuating a cycle of violence and conflict.

Conclusion: In the intricate varieties of human emotions, love and hate stand as opposite poles, yet deeply interconnected that shapes our perceptions, actions, and relationships. Recognizing the profound impact of these emotions, individuals and societies must strive to cultivate love and empathy while confronting and challenging hate and prejudice. By embracing the transformative power of love and rejecting the corrosive influence of hate, we can aspire to create a more compassionate, equitable, and harmonious world for future generations.

Love Learning Vs Hate Learning - Annie Mahajan

Love for learning ignites a fire within, a passion that fuels curiosity and drives exploration. It's a beacon of excitement, leading to discoveries that widen horizons and enrich lives. 

Conversely, hatred for learning is a heavy burden, suffocating potential and dimming the light of knowledge with its stifling grip.

War Vs Peace - Annie Mahajan

In school, "War" symbolizes students' internal struggles with academic pressures and personal challenges, evoking stress and uncertainty.

Conversely, "peace" embodies harmony, acceptance, and support, fostering a sense of belonging and empowerment, where students thrive emotionally and academically in a nurturing environment conducive to learning and growth.

War Vs Peace - Sneha Chakravorty

Embarking on a new academic year, I found myself facing unexpected emotions with the arrival of an autistic child in my classroom. Questions flooded my mind: Would I be able to provide the necessary support? Could\ I create an environment where he could flourish alongside his peers? Doubt clouded my confidence as an educator.

Yet, what followed was a journey beyond expectations. Day by day, a profound connection formed with this child, unravelling a narrative I had never envisioned. It wasn't merely about teaching; it was about understanding, adapting, and evolving together.

Initially, the hurdles appeared insurmountable. Communication barriers hindered my understanding of his special needs, and conventional teaching methods seemed ineffective. However, as I embraced his neurodiversity, a remarkable transformation began.

Patience emerged as my greatest ally. I learned to communicate in ways that resonated with him, employing visual aids and sensory tools to nurture a supportive learning atmosphere. Each minor breakthrough became a shared triumph, strengthening our rapport.

As days turned into weeks and months, I witnessed remarkable progress. What initially appeared daunting now felt natural. The once uncertain path became illuminated with promise and optimism.

Our shared journey imparted invaluable lessons - about resilience, empathy, and the profound impact of human connection. It reaffirmed my faith in the transformative potential of education, transcending mere intellectual growth to touch hearts.

With collaborative gestures, I endeavoured to settle the concerns of the child's parents, fostering open communication and understanding. Together, we formed a supportive partnership, ensuring his comfort and holistic development.

Reflecting on this profound experience, I am both humbled and grateful. As an educator, my intention was to impart knowledge, yet it was I who received an education - from the courage, resilience, and limitless potential of a child with autism. And for that, I am profoundly thankful.

Love Learning Vs Hate Learning - Mohini Rai

When an 18-year-old boy still remembers his kindergarten teacher, who taught him in the school when he was just 3 years old, that is a love of learning. And the reason for this is the memory which is alive deep in his heart. 

The boy can still cherish those old memories of him with his teacher singing and enjoying the nursery rhymes, being in her hands, moving round and round and round in circles and dancing with his teacher “Beauty ma’am”. It is no less than a miracle remembering the name of the teacher when the boy was just 3 years old. So in one sentence, I can say that the love of learning lasts with the last breath of life and passes through generations.

It is true that I am a teacher by chance but the interest of teaching is in my blood. This is what I believe. I am a good teacher, no matter inside the school campus or outside the school. Of course, initially joining the job of a Teacher was my need but gradually this need converted into interest and has become a part of My Life.

Indeed, life cannot be led without money. To survive in this world and to be alive we need money. Hence I also needed money and did this job. However, I started getting connected to my job deeply when I experienced the joy of this job by receiving sweet and loving reflections from my students. Teaching in a school is a soulful job. Each and every day makes you feel alive. 

You will experience ups and downs but when you will come before your students, you will forget everything, all bad phases and tensions and you will get involved with your children in a positive way. In this whole process, if a teacher can touch one single heart out of 40 students, the teacher should understand that his work is done well.

As a teacher, I do not focus on the negative parts of my job. Of course, sometimes I panic when I am overloaded with work. But the next moment I calm myself, sit silently and then think that I will do my best in whatever task is assigned to me and even if I fail in completing my work, it is also a learning for me. I take my work as a continuous learning process. There is a famous saying that ‘everyone can't be Jack of all trades’. 

I also can't be the Jack. But I can try at least. Personally, I believe that everyone should maintain a balance between a family life and a professional life. We have our responsibilities and roles towards both. We cannot avoid any of them. So things should be planned in such a way that they should not disturb each other. 

I also believe in equal distribution of work in any system. Those who are good performers are overburdened with more and more work whereas those who perform badly are given front work. Sometimes such things disturb the balance in the system as well as in personal life. I also want to say that the system should analyze and provide equal opportunities to all employees. So that all will work with a happy framework of mind.

Now let's talk about love learning and hate learning. A class full of 40 students includes 40 different personalities with different interests, IQs, hobbies, behaviours, values, family backgrounds, society etc.

Hence they all perform differently in their assessments. It is usually observed that children are weak in major subjects based on concepts, which does not happen in 1 day, one month, or 1 year. Students get weak year by year. Becoming weaker in any subject may have several reasons. For example, a child could be weak in math or science because of not attending classes regularly, being busy in co-curricular activities, or because of dislike for the subject or subject teacher. But the less marks do not decide a child's wisdom or his potential.

 Also, there are different types of children for example some children learn under pressure whereas some learn when they are happily ready to learn. So a teacher must develop a rapport with these students. In the starting period, teachers should take some time to understand students' mindsets so that learning can be done positively. Until and unless a child is not connected with the teacher, the subject being taught by the teacher will be difficult to be understood by the child. 

Gradually students will develop fear or hesitation with the subject teacher and hence stop asking questions. Day by day he/she will keep on moving to the next topic with piled-up doubts in their mind. That is how they become weak and weaker day by day in the particular subject. Becoming weaker in a subject ends the interest in that subject. And the student finds the particular subject boring and stops paying attention. Also, try to run away from that subject and ignore the subject teacher. Hence love learning can only be done if the child is happily ready to learn.

In my opinion, a teacher should look presentable and approachable. Each student observes his or her teacher minutely, small talk by a teacher means a lot to the student, and a small encouragement done by the teacher can be a big effort in bringing change and improvement in a child's performance.

Once the child feels connected to the teacher, it means the teacher has won the half battle. Because the child will put his or her best effort into making the particular teacher happy, the child will try not to leave the chance of complaint, and s/he will focus more and more. That is how the child will start moving towards this step of Improvement.

War Vs Peace - Gitika Kapoor

"In the classroom, peace is the symphony of learning, while war is the chaos of conflict."

The dichotomy between war and peace is a constant struggle for teachers as they navigate the tumultuous waters of education. In times of peace, teachers can cultivate a harmonious and nurturing environment where students can thrive. They can focus on the joy of learning, the excitement of discovery, and the beauty of growth. Peace allows teachers to inspire their students, ignite their passion for knowledge, and foster a sense of community and collaboration.

But in times of war, the serenity of the classroom is shattered by the clamour of discord. Conflict arises, tensions mount, and the once tranquil atmosphere becomes a battlefield of competing interests and agendas. The teacher is no longer a facilitator of learning, but a mediator of disputes, a referee of disagreements, and a solider in the fight to maintain order and control.

In war, teachers are forced to navigate a minefield of challenges, from disruptive students to bureaucratic red tape. They must constantly be on guard, ready to defend the sanctity of education against the onslaught of distractions and disruptions. Their patience is tested, their resolve is strained, and their passion is threatened by the spectre of burnout and exhaustion.

But despite the hardships of war, teachers persevere. They endure the chaos and the conflict, knowing that their dedication to their students and their commitment to their craft will ultimately prevail. And, in the end, it is their unwavering belief in the power of education, their unshakeable faith in the potential of their students, and their unwavering commitment to the cause of learning that ultimately triumphs over adversity.

In the end, war and peace are the yin and yang of the classroom, each playing a vital role in shaping the experiences of teachers and students alike. While peace allows for growth and harmony, war brings challenges and opportunities for growth. Both are essential in the journey towards enlightenment and empowerment, serving as tests of resilience and dedication. And, it is through perseverance and belief in the power of education that teachers can navigate the complexities of conflict and create a symphony of learning that will resonate for generations to come.

Love Learning Vs Hate Learning - Reeta Tiwari

The attitude towards learning in a classroom can greatly influence a student's experience and academic success. Those who love learning tend to be more engaged, curious, and motivated, leading to a deeper understanding and enjoyment of the subject matter. On the other hand, those who hate learning may feel disengaged, frustrated, and unmotivated, which can hinder their ability to absorb information and perform well academically. 

Creating a positive and supportive learning environment can help cultivate a love for learning and mitigate feelings of dislike or apathy towards education.

Several factors contribute to the formation of a love-learning or hate-learning environment in a classroom:

Teaching methods: Engaging and interactive teaching methods, such as hands-on activities, discussions, and real-world applications, can foster a love for learning. In contrast, rigid or uninspiring teaching approaches may lead to boredom and disinterest among students.

Classroom atmosphere: A supportive and inclusive classroom atmosphere where students feel valued, respected, and safe encourages a love for learning. Conversely, a negative or hostile environment, characterized by bullying, ridicule, or lack of support, can breed a dislike for learning.

Curriculum relevance: A relevant, interesting, and personalized curriculum to students' interests and needs can increase their engagement and motivation to learn. However, if the curriculum needs to be updated, relevant, and more manageable, students may develop negative attitudes towards learning.

Teacher-student relationships: Positive relationships between teachers and students built on trust, encouragement, and respect can inspire a love for learning. Conversely, strained or adversarial relationships may lead to feelings of frustration and resentment towards learning.

Peer influence: Peer interactions and social dynamics in the classroom can impact students' attitudes towards learning. Positive peer relationships and collaboration can foster a supportive learning environment, while negative peer influences, such as peer pressure or social exclusion, may contribute to hate learning.

Individual differences: Students have diverse learning styles, abilities, interests, and backgrounds, which can influence their attitudes towards learning. Teachers who recognize and accommodate these differences are more likely to create a positive learning environment for all students.

By addressing these factors and promoting a positive, engaging, and inclusive learning environment, educators can cultivate a love for learning and minimize the formation of hate learning attitudes in the classroom.

Love Vs Hate Learning- Ankit Khare

Whenever I enter my classroom, I see the passion and the spark in my children's eyes toward learning it's not only for a particular subject but it's about their love for learning.

 If you want your children, to love learning, create a positive and encouraging environment that stimulates their natural excitement and inquisitiveness. Here are several strategies:

1. Make Learning Fun: Incorporate games, interactive activities etc. This helps to bring lessons to life via your creativity and imagination.

2. Follow Their Interests: Customize learning sessions to reflect children's interests and passions.

3. Provide Positive Feedback: Celebrate their progress and accomplishments, no matter how minor. Positive reinforcement promotes confidence and a love of learning.

4. Create a Supportive Environment: Each child learns at his or her own pace and in their own style. Show patience, understanding, and support for their unique talents, problems, and learning styles.

6. Foster a growth mindset: Cultivate a growth mindset by highlighting the value of effort, tenacity, and resilience during learning.

Hate learning:

"Hate learning" relates to a dislike or dissatisfaction with acquiring knowledge, skills, or information. It may show up in various ways, including boredom, discomfort, a lack of interest, and aversion to learning activities. Hate learning is frequently generated by situations like:

1. Unfavorable Learning Experiences: Previous negative experiences in school or education, such as failure, criticism, or feeling misunderstood, may contribute to a dislike for learning.

2. Lack of Relevance: When learning experiences are not perceived as relevant or significant to one's interests, goals, or everyday life, it can lead to disengagement and apathy.

3. Overemphasis on Grades or Performance: Pressure to achieve academically or meet specified criteria can induce worry and tension, resulting in a negative attitude.

To make my computer classes more interactive for children, I try to incorporate engaging activities and tools that cater to children's interests and learning styles. 

I use educational software and apps, specifically designed for children, that offer interactive lessons, games, and activities to make learning fun and engaging.

I also allow children to apply their learning in the form of creative digital art, programming simple games, making attractive PPTs, etc

Introduce coding activities tailored to children's age and skill level using platforms like Scratch JR.

 By implementing these interactive strategies, I create a dynamic and engaging computer class that sparks children's curiosity, fosters their creativity, and cultivates a passion for technology and learning.

The Compassionate Learner

In a serene village nestled amidst rolling hills and lush greenery, there lived a young girl named Maya. Maya had always been curious about the world around her. She found joy in exploring nature, asking questions, and seeking answers. However, Maya's love for learning wasn't always shared by her peers.

One day, Maya noticed a new boy, Aarav, sitting alone on a bench during recess. Aarav looked lost in his thoughts, his eyes filled with sadness. Maya approached him with a warm smile and asked if everything was alright. Aarav hesitated at first but eventually opened up to Maya.

As they talked, Maya learned that Aarav had recently moved to the village from a faraway town. He felt out of place in his new school and missed his friends terribly. What saddened Aarav the most was his struggles with academics. He found it hard to keep up with the lessons and felt discouraged.

Moved by Aarav's story, Maya felt a deep sense of empathy towards him. She knew what it was like to feel alone and overwhelmed. But Maya also knew the power of learning to uplift one's spirits. Determined to help Aarav rediscover his love for learning, Maya invited him to join her study group.

At first, Aarav was hesitant. He doubted his own abilities and feared letting Maya down. But Maya reassured him, reminding him that they were all in this together. With Maya's guidance and encouragement, Aarav began to approach learning with a newfound sense of enthusiasm and curiosity.

Maya and Aarav spent countless hours studying together, exploring various subjects, and tackling challenges side by side. Maya's patience, kindness, and unwavering support gave Aarav the confidence to persevere through difficult times.

Gradually, Aarav's grades began to improve, and his confidence soared. He discovered a passion for science and mathematics, finding joy in unravelling the mysteries of the universe. Maya's love for learning had ignited a spark within Aarav's heart, transforming his outlook on education and life.

Years passed, and Maya and Aarav remained the best of friends. They continued to inspire each other, sharing a bond forged by empathy, understanding, and a shared love for learning. Together, they proved that with compassion and determination, anything is possible.

As Maya looked back on their journey, she realized that the true essence of learning lay not just in acquiring knowledge but in the connections forged, the lives touched, and the hearts transformed along the way.

Significance of Relationship: A Student's Journey

Once upon a time in a cosy neighbourhood, there was a young boy named Sam. Sam was entering his teenage years, facing new challenges and uncertainties every day.

At home, Sam had his family – his parents, his older sister Mia, and his grandparents who lived nearby. They were his pillars, always there to listen, guide, and support him through thick and thin. Whether it was a difficult homework assignment or a tough day at school, Sam knew he could always count on his family for love and encouragement.

But growing up wasn't easy. Sam faced challenges in school, feeling overwhelmed by the pressure to perform well. That's where his teachers came in Ms. Dar, his English teacher, noticed Sam's love for storytelling and encouraged him to write and express himself. With her help, Sam found a new passion for reading and writing, boosting his confidence along the way.

In the Math class, Ms. Kamal patiently helped Sam understand tricky equations and concepts. She never gave up on Sam, teaching him that it's okay to make mistakes as long as you keep trying. Thanks to her support, Sam started to see math as an enjoyable subject rather than a daunting obstacle.

Outside school, Sam's friends played a crucial role in his life. They laughed together, shared secrets, and stood by each other at all times. With their support, Sam felt accompanied and more confident to face the ups and downs of adolescence.

As Sam journeyed through his critical teenage years, he realized the importance of the relationships in his life. From the love of his family to the guidance of his teachers and the mutual trust of his friends, each bond helped shape him into the person he was becoming.

In the end, Sam emerged from his teenage years stronger and more resilient, grateful for the support of his loved ones. Sam knew that no matter what challenges lay ahead, he would always have his family, his teachers, and his friends by his side, ready to cheer him on and lift him up whenever he needed it most.

Love Learning Vs Hate Learning - Shalini Tiwari

मैंने कक्षा में प्रवेश किया तो बच्चों ने उत्साह के साथ अभिवादन किया और पूछा, मैंम, आज के नए शब्द के लिए कोई संकेत दीजिए। मैं हतप्रभ रह गई कि मेरे इस तरह के प्रयोग करने पर बच्चे इतने प्रभावित हो जाएँगे। 

मैंने पुनः नए शब्द के आधार पर एक सामान्य ज्ञान का प्रश्न बनाया जिसके तरह-तरह के उत्तर छात्र अपनी-अपनी सोच के आधार पर बता रहे थे। यह वह समय था जब नए सत्र में मैंने कक्षा की शुरुआत की थी और आज इस सत्र का आखिरी दिन था। मैंने अपनी कक्षा की अवधि पूर्ण की और बाहर निकल आई तभी पीछे से दो बच्चों ने आवाज लगाई, मैंने पीछे मुड़कर देखा और पूछा, "क्या बात है?"

उनमें से एक रुँआसा होते हुए पूछा -"मैंम, क्या आप अगली कक्षा में नहीं पढ़ाएँगी¿ मैंने मुस्कुरा कर बोला, “नहीं। तो क्या हुआ, मैं इसी विद्यालय में हूँ जब मुझसे मिलना हो या कुछ भी समस्या हो मेरे पास आ सकते हो। 

दोनों आश्वस्त हो कर कक्षा में वापस चले गए। मैं पूरे सत्र का अवलोकन करने लगी जब बच्चे मेरे बोलने के, पढ़ाने के ढंग और मेरे पहनावे को भी बहुत ध्यान से देखते थे, यहाँ तक कि वह कई बार अपनी पसंद रखते जैसे मैंम आप सूट नहीं साड़ी पहना कीजिए वगैरह-वगैरह। 

अब मैं सोचने पर मजबूर थी कि वास्तव में जब एक शिक्षक स्वयं को व्यवस्थित ना रखे, विषय को रुचिकर ना बनाएँ एवं उनके संशय को दूर करने की क्षमता ना हो तो कैसे छात्रों से आपसी जुड़ाव होगा¿ कैसे एक शिक्षक की गरिमामयी व्यक्तित्व का निर्माण होगा¿ विद्यालय में सबसे अधिक एक शिक्षक और छात्र के बीच का संबंध ही महत्वपूर्ण होता है और उसे सुदृढ़ करने के लिए मेरे विचार से कुछ बिंदुओं पर ध्यान देना अनिवार्य है जो अधिगम को रोचक और प्रभावी बनाएँ और बच्चे भावनात्मक रूप से हमसे जुड़ सके |

PC- Shalini Tiwari

शारीरिक भाषा - हमारे शरीर का हाव-भाव हमारी सोच को दर्शाता है। हमारे चेहरे की मुद्रा या बोल चाल का ढंग यह बता देता है कि हम सामने वाले से बात करते समय उत्साहित है या नीरसता उत्पन्न हो रही है। जहां तक बच्चों की बात है, बच्चे अपनी उपस्थिति का आभास चाहते हैं और ऐसे में शिक्षक की एक दृष्टि भी, बच्चे का ध्यान आकर्षित करने के लिए पर्याप्त होती है। यदि बच्चा किसी प्रकरण पर अपने विचार व्यक्त कर रहा है और शिक्षक मुस्कुराकर उसके विचारों का स्वागत कर रहे हैँ तो बच्चे का आत्मविश्वास बढ़ता है और अपनी बातों को नि:संकोच रखता है।

पारस्परिक संबंध को बढ़ावा- शिक्षक का अध्यापन तभी सफल होता है जब वह आश्वस्त हो कि सभी छात्र उसकी शिक्षण अवधि में पूरी तरह शामिल है इसके लिए शिक्षक को सर्वप्रथम छात्रों के साथ ऐसा व्यवहार रखना चाहिए कि वह खुलकर अपने विचारों को रख सके, कोई भी संशय हो तो व्यक्त कर सके, उसके लिए शिक्षक में बच्चों के मनोभाव को भी पढ़ने का कौशल होना चा हिए क्योंकि सभी बच्चे बहिर्मुखी नहीं होते ।

विषय को रुचिकर बनाना- किसी भी विषय को पढ़ाने के लिए शिक्षण की हर विधि का प्रयोग करना चाहिए जैसे खेल द्वारा, गतिविधि द्वारा, कला द्वारा या गीत संगीत द्वारा क्योंकि प्रत्येक बच्चे की अधिगम क्षमता अलग-अलग होती है। कुछ बच्चे समूह में जल्दी सीखते हैं ऐसे में सामूहिक क्रियाकलाप प्रभावकारी होता है।

नई तकनीकी का प्रयोग- परिवर्तन संसार का नियम है और यह स्वीकार्य होना चाहिए। कई बार शिक्षा तकनीकी में भी परिवर्तन होते रहते हैं और एक शिक्षक को परिवर्तन के मूलभूत जानकारी को क्रियान्वयन में लाना चाहिए। शिक्षा में पारंपरिक और आधुनिक तकनीकी दोनों की भूमिका अनिवार्य है।
