The Teacher as a Teaching Aid

An Experience of SimaJalil

The Teacher is The Best aid

  • Convenient

  • Portable

  • Use no electricity

  • Can be used effectively in light and dark

  • Available all the time

What should a teacher do?(To be an effective aid)

  • Movement

  • Use body language

  • Eye contact

  • Gesture

  • Facial expression

  • Speech

  • Student talk

  • Names


  • Sitting behind a desk or standing on a dais creates a “ Distance” between the teacher and the students.

  • Try to have an aisle and enough space between rows so that you can easily reach those at the back.

  • Some movement on the side is essential

  • Step forward to emphasize a point take small steps to different sides of the class

Use body language

  • Your body should be in your control

  • Hold it in such a way that you look alert and awake

  • Avoid slumping & sagging

  • Just as too little movement is boring, too much movement can be a distraction

  • When you are alert, it encourages the students subconsciously to become alert

Eye contact

  • Keep your eyes lively, aware and interested

  • Move them around to take in everything

  • Fix them on individual students, but not for so long that they become uncomfortable!

  • Avoid focusing on the best or not so good students.

  • Make sure you make eye contact with each student.

  • Knowing that the teacher demands eye contact keeps the students alert.


  • Arms and hands are a very expressive visual aid.

  • They can be used to describe shapes, actions, movements etc.

  • Remember to keep still while listening to a student.

  • Avoid habits such as fiddling with notes& books, key chains pens etc.

Facial expression

  • There is nothing worse than a constant frown, which discourages students from asking questions or seeking help.

  • A smile can work wonders.

  • It encourages the student to participate actively .

  • Look interested while a student is speaking.

  • Cultivate a sympathetic & encouraging expression.


  • A low monotone or a high pitched voice can be difficult to understand or grating to the ears

  • Make sure that

    • You are speaking at the right volume

    • You are not speaking too fast

    • Your diction is clear

Student talk

Break the monotony and give students plenty of time to talk

  • It will keep them alert

  • Be friendly


  • Call students by their name.

  • It sounds warmer & friendlier and lessens the distance between the teacher and learner.


The Teacher is the best teaching. So be sure that you are using yourself to full effect.

Best way to learn is to learn from the best
