A punishment is a form of revenge by the teacher because a student is misbehaving. The goal of a punishment is to instill fear into the student so the misconduct will be avoided. A consequence, on the other hand, is related to class management. If a set of mandatory rules is clearly laid out and followed throughout the year then a set of consequences should follow. This means that it could be a positive or negative. Dealing with the negative aspect, a consequence is a reasonable way to help the rule-breaking student learn the proper way to perform from the occurrence that has happened in the classroom. Experts say the main objective of consequences ...

With neuroscience uncovering more about how the brain works and our preoccupation with how to teach and learn more effectively, it was almost inevitable that the two fields would meet.
But not everyone's happy. In fact in some quarters the application of 'unproven' or 'misunderstood' neuroscience has been getting very bad press.

The goal of this article is to teach you the top 5 steps in how to teach critical and refractive thinking to adult learners at the college or university level.
1. CREDIBILITY: To teach adult learners, you have to have credibility. Adult learners are often skeptical. You must establish first and foremost, how you have earned the right to teach them. I typically post my introductory video that offers my credentials (undergrad, master's, and Doctoral degrees). I then ensure I highlight my writing awards, my international best seller, my academic conference awards---external validation that I have earned the right to teach them.

So I would look at ways in which I could show the trainee a variety of teaching strategies that increased interest in my students. Their arrival also meant I would endeavour to teach the "perfect" lessons to inspire them and my students.
In doing this I was trying to create an image of how a teacher works in a professional way. As well I would endeavour to give the trainee a wide experience of school life, not just in the classroom but in the staff room and in the playground.
I always provided more opportunities to experience teaching than was ...
