Your students are the most powerful resource in your school. If you empower your students you will engage and motivate them to learn further.
So here are five ways to empower your students:
provide opportunities for them to give you feedback, because learning is based on teamwork
let your students decide sometimes, because they must own what they learn
be part of the team; don't just dispense knowledge, rather brainstorm and get students to reinforce the concepts you wish them to learn
use technology, because it is a tech world and it can make learning more motivating
apply your teaching to the real world, so your students can see the purpose of their effort
