Tips for Teaching.
Langer, Philip
TUTOR: Graduate Teacher Program Newsletter, v3 n4 Win 1987
Suggestions on how to enhance college teaching are provided. Lecturing is stressed as a critical component of teaching, and each lecture's introduction, main body, and conclusion must be correlated prior to any given lecture. Information on how to compose and give a lecture includes: what to put in an introduction; what can be done to help the student grasp the main body of the lecture; how to write a conclusion; what is the best style; how to ask for questions; how to deal with offensive students in a lecture situation; and how close to stay to the text. A section on asking questions focuses on: how to get students ready for a question and answer session; what kind of questions to ask; how to get past the factual level; how to answer; how to cue students into giving more detailed or complex responses; how to call on volunteers and non-volunteers; what to do if a student answers incorrectly; and bad habits. Evaluation topics are: use of "canned" tests; what to include in a test; length of tests; precautions to take in constructing multiple-choice items; marking essays and projects; what makes a test fair; and what to do with a filing student who approaches the teacher asking for help.
