As a teacher, you are the one who is responsible for making sure that your students learn and progress. You have to make sure that the classroom atmosphere is conducive to learning, and this can be achieved through a number of different factors. While some teachers might choose to use pre-made materials or teacher guides when teaching their classes, others prefer creating their own materials from scratch. If you're in the former category—and even if you're not—teachers should always strive to set clear expectations for their students so that they know what's expected of them:
Students enter your class with a certain set of expectations, and you should be prepared for that. You can’t expect students to be engaged if they don’t know what to expect from you, themselves, and the course content. As a teacher, it’s important that you set clear expectations so that students know what they’re getting into. To do this effectively:
There are a lot of benefits to being organized, and your students will be grateful that they know what they're supposed to do on an assignment. It also helps you keep track of how well each student is doing in your course, which can lead to better test scores on the midterm and final exams.
This is a great way to make sure that students know when their tests are happening and where they need to be. When you create your Google Classroom, click on the “Classes” section and then “Create a class.” Once you have created your class, click on the name of it in the left-hand column. You can then edit the description of this class and add information like what type of assignment or test will be given during this time period and how much weight each assignment or test counts for in total (you can also set these at different percentages). On top of that, if there is an outside resource that needs to be used for this specific type of assignment or test (like a website), you can link directly from inside Google Classroom instead of having students go out into another browser window or tab on their computers/devices.
To make sure everyone sees all assignments clearly listed out with dates, times, and locations clearly visible along with any other relevant details such as the number of questions per essay question type along with its grading scale like A+ = 100 points, etc., we recommend creating one large calendar showing all tests being conducted over several weeks so parents can see exactly what days/time slots their child has off school work.
It is important to keep your students engaged at all times. The best way to do this is with a fun activity! Some examples of fun activities are:
If you don't keep your students engaged, they may become bored and wander off to look for something better to do. Who wants that?
A classroom management tool can help you keep track of attendance, grades, and other details.
BoloForms Attendance Tracker is a handy Chrome extension that allows you to track the attendance of all the students who are in the Google Meet. What's better? They check for attendance every 5 minutes and this makes sure that students are present inside the class for the entire duration of the lecture.
The tool will help you keep track of students' attendance in your class by allowing you to be free from the manual work of entering names and classes in a spreadsheet. Everything is done automatically.

You can have your students complete peer-learning reviews in advance of an exam or to help them learn from each other. If you have a test coming up that you want your class to be prepared for, ask all the students to review each other's answers and grade them based on how well they address their specific questions. This will give you an idea of which areas need extra practice before the exam and remind them of what they studied previously while reinforcing those concepts.
You can also use this approach with homework or projects if it's something that needs clarification or improvement before being submitted back into the system itself (such as via Moodle). For example, if there's a project due next week but it is unclear whether everyone understands what's required from them, then having everyone submit their work early beforehand would give everyone time enough so no one feels rushed at last-minute crunch time when everything else is due too!
If you have students who finish the homework faster than others, keep a box of supplementary tasks for them to work on. This will allow them to use their time meaningfully and challenge them further.
The extra work could be an extension of the original task or even a completely different task that is more challenging. Students can also use it as a chance to show what they have learned in class through their own creativity and ideas
You can also use this box to help you see how students are learning. By looking at the work they do on their “extra” tasks, you may identify patterns or problems with certain concepts that are not being addressed in class yet need more attention.
Teachers are often under pressure to meet the demands of their students. But there are many ways you can manage your classroom and exam management so that you can teach effectively, while also making sure that learning is fun and engaging!
