Tip Sheet 12

by Richard Aldridge, Accounting

July 17, 1995


1. Create an atmosphere in the classroom that helps the learning process. Be enthusiastic! Let one's love of the subject show.
2. Explain the logic behind the subject material. Show where this information has beneflt.
3. Sometimes less material is better.
4. Show the "how-to" on the board (step-by-step outlines of complex material), then repeat the information using an example, and then use a prepared visual aid for an overview.
5. Use overheads effectively. One idea is to use different colors for different ideas.
6. Asking questions in class is a good technique but you can answer your own questions and take the pressure off students.
