1-min Eltt guide – How Can You Manage Hyperactive Students?

Hyperactive students struggle to focus and stay organized. Many students, mostly primary ones are hyperactive. They need special attention from teachers to control them and help them understand the lessons. In case some students showed hyperactivity in my classroom I would:

* Great them by their names and create some time to speak to them individually.

* Build strong relationship with them by asking about their personal life, hobbies, activities, health and emotions.

* Praise them, if they did good things to make them feel emotionally safe in the classroom.

* Reinforce their appropriate behavior by giving them stars or gifts or by displaying their photographs on the class board.

* Tell their mistakes indirectly by asking them or the class: “Is that good or bad behavior?”

* Specify some time during the class for movement or doing some physical actions and encourage them to participate.

* Let them sit in the front rows to help them get the maximum concentration.

* Divide the big tasks for them into small steps making sure that they completed the first step before going on to the second one.

* Communicate with their parents and the psychological specialist at school asking for more information about them to use to improve their learning level.

1-min Eltt guide – How Can You Handle New Words in a Reading Text?

You can handle new words in a reading exercise in one of the following three ways:

1. Get the new and key words out of the reading text and present their meanings in the pre-reading stage.

2. Let the students read the text and underline or highlight the new words or the words they don’t know, and then work on the meaning of individual words afterwards perhaps while reading aloud to the students. 

In the previous first two cases the teacher should beware of wasting time on words that can just be ignored.

3. Don’t deal with vocabulary at all so that students read with relative fluency and get an overview of the text.

Even native speakers encounter words they’re unfamiliar with and may not look them up if they’re still able to understand what they’re reading.
