Developing nations generally spend a fairly large component of their national budgets on education. Of that, a large proportion is spent on paying up teachers’ salaries. In Indian States, the share of teacher salaries in elementary education expenditure is estimated, on an average, to be 97 per cent (World Bank 1996).
In the prevailing economic crisis world over, most developing nations are forced to contain their public expenditure. Given this scenario, it is unlikely that most developing nations will be able to increase their educational budgets in the future. This leaves very little hope for any increase in the expenditure on teachers’ salaries, teacher numbers. At the same time, the requirement of teachers is going up. Several conditions are continuously impacting on the need for primary teachers e. g., increasing enrolments, retiring teachers etc. Notwithstanding the scarcity of funds to appoint additional teachers needed, any quality improvement will be only possible through more efficient use of the available resources – both human and physical. Teachers are the most important human resource in any educational programme. Therefore, the real challenge is to enhance teacher effectiveness without increasing costs.


To define and measure teacher effectiveness is a difficult task. To put it simply, one may say that what students learn is the basic “output” of schooling; the more students learn in a given time, the more “effective” is the teaching to which they have been exposed. In other words, it is the value added to learning due to implementation of the teaching process. Schooling is a composite phenomenon that would comprise of several dimensions. At a bare minimum level, schooling would require a building; some provision for seating children, drinking water, and sanitation…...

...Every teacher in college is different; many have very different teaching habits. If every teacher was the same it would feel as if the students were being taught by robots; students would become very bored throughout the school day. When college students start school they are very nervous about how their teachers are going to act. College teachers can be broken up into three groups: positive, negative, and neutral teachers. The positive teachers are by far the minority of the three groups of teachers. Positive teachers are the most agreeable teachers. A positive teacher is one who seems interested in his or her subject and his or her students. The first thing a positive teacher does is try to learn all of the student’s names. This kind of teacher allows for questions and discussions in class and does not seem to mind if a student disagrees with him or her. A positive teacher shows his or her interest out of class as well. Not only is he or she available for conferences, but he or she encourages students to see him or her if they need help. The students tend to feel comfortable in the presence of this teacher. A good example of a positive teacher is one that always allows time during the class hour for some class discussion. Positive teachers, during conferences with students are always very polite and make as much of an effort as possible to make sure the student understands. The teacher will often show examples to help the student. The professor will go into deeper detail of...

... their organizations, and themselves. When transformational leaders look at their followers, they see the next generation of leaders. Transformational leadership aims to stimulate and inspire followers to reach beyond what they thought possible and elicit extraordinary results. It looks to achieve true commitment and involvement from the follower by involving his or her self-worth in the work. Transformational leadership requires change to be implemented and sustained in an organization. Rather than demonstration, transformational leadership is learning and working together process where both the leader and follower involve in a particular task. The leadership aims to implement change by strengthening the ability of person by enhancing the interaction capability of a person in a complex situation to utilize creativity when there are obstacles and conflict for improvement. b. Philosophy Transformational leaders believe in the philosophy that a leader can influence followers only when he practices what he preaches. The leaders act as role models that followers seek to emulate. Such leaders always win the trust and respect of their followers through their action. They typically place their followers needs over their own, sacrifice their personal gains for them, ad demonstrate high standards of ethical conduct. The use of power by such leaders is aimed at influencing them to strive for the common goals of the organization. Transformational leadership is “concerned...

...Chad Segersten EDA-551 Supervision and Instructional Leadership 12 June 2013 Classroom Visitation The main purpose of the observation and visitation was to examine the teaching styles of a novice and veteran teacher. One of the main differences I was familiar with was the distinct age difference. Going into the visitations I was curious as to if the age difference would show through their teaching styles. Both settings were in a 5th grade classroom and within the same elementary school. The first visitation took me to an “older” style of classroom. This veteran teacher was very stern and was very set in procedures throughout the day. I noticed the classroom schedule was displayed in very large text and was located in an area that was very noticeable. The teacher presented a short ten to fifteen minute lessons in math. After she presented the lesson, students asked clarifying questions and then were set to work on a worksheet with partners. The teacher did not move throughout the room for assistance, but she did offer the chance for students to come to her for assistance. Examining the younger, novice teacher, I noted a completely different classroom environment. As I walked in, I noticed I was observing partway through the lesson. Students and teacher were both involved in classroom discussion. Students were working to formulate their own understanding and formula for solving for the area of a square. The best and most interesting aspect to my visitation was......

Teacher Motivation

...CHAPTER 1 – INTRODUCTION 1.1 BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY The issue of teachers’ motivation and the standard of education has become a matter of debate and concern in educational systems and standards. In most developing countries of the world including Ghana, there has been a growing awareness about teacher motivation which is a key to quality assurance, quality outcomes/delivery and high standards in the educational system. It is acknowledged that any nation that is aspiring to maintain high and quality standards or achieve quality assurance in its educational system must take teachers and their motivational needs with utmost high level of seriousness. Teachers are important instrument in education. They are also the pivot on which the educational process hang. Teachers play a major role in the whims and caprices of the educational system. They can influence the teaching – learning outcomes either positively or negatively because they determine the quality of instructional delivery and also influence quality education when it comes to implementation of the curriculum and educational policies. They are to be considered when addressing issues such as: quality assurance; quality delivery (teaching), quality context and quality learning outcomes (Onucha, 2002). However, they are the custodians of the educational and school systems. Since teaching can be regarded as a systematic, rational and organized process of transmitting knowledge, skills, attitudes, values and what is......

...altercation with a classmate. As the classroom teacher began intervention, FL began to verbally attack the teacher, and then began to threaten the safety of the teacher. This paper will discuss the breakdown of the handling of this situation, and the final result, the consequence, that the student, FL was given, and the rebuttal on the part of the parent. FL is a Special Education student in a regular education classroom. FL’s learning disability revolves around reading, and reading comprehension. FL has also been diagnosed as having ADHD by a neuropsychologist. Once a week an Instructional Aide goes into the classroom to work with FL in a one-on-one method on his assignments pertaining to reading, and reading to answer questions. This is done in the general education classroom, and at other times it is done in the vacant classroom. There is a current IEP on file and the regular education teacher is well aware of the goals and guidelines spelled out in the IEP. FL is also an English Language Learner (ELL), and he is on Probation for incidences that have occurred outside of school hours. The classroom teacher had just completed her lecture and question and answer on the U.S. History assignment. While she was circulating the room checking for understanding she heard a conversation between FL and another regular education student, (SB), also male. It was obvious they were not discussing the assignment, and more obvious that if the teacher did not curtail the conversation that......

Enhancing the Workplace

...Approach to Enhancing the Workplace G.D Q.C Abstract Psychology offers access for enhancing productivity in the workplace. Wiegand and Geller (2003) make reference to a number of factors we should focus on to enhance individuals’ success while providing a positive and supportive workplace climate. The discussion in the following article by Csikszentmihalyi (1990) extends to the concept of a term called “Flow” which discusses how a different state of mind can also have an effect on a better workplace. Lastly Martin (2005) researches the different leadership and management styles and discusses how an authoritative leadership style works best to improve the workforce. Approach to Enhancing the Workplace It is a fact that a workplace cannot run correctly and make a profit if it has workers that are not being productive. Therefore we can find a lot of information of how we can improve the workplace by simply enhancing the way we treat our workers and showing them the correct way to improvement. I believe that many of the principles here are principles of effective and productive human performance that can be applied to the workplace. The issues in the articles are relevant to motivation and performance in the workplace and are also relevant to managers and leaders seeking to enhance workplace outcomes. Most of it will rely in large part on the extent to which workers are behaviorally,......

Level of Effectiveness in Multigrade Teaching Among Public Elementary Teachers in the Division of Lanao Del Norte

...have complete elementary schools. Among the many reasons cited for these are the inaccessibility of certain localities due to geographic condition, the uneven distribution of pupils in certain grade levels, the pupil proportion per teacher is too small for the establishment of a complete elementary, the lack of classrooms, and the lack of teachers in some areas (Pascua, 2011). In response with the government’s thrust, DECS Order no. 38, s.1993, known as “Improving Access to Elementary Education by Providing all Grade Levels in the Public Elementary Schools through Combination and/or multigrade classes” was implemented. According the DepEd, multigrade school usually consists of two classes with each class consisting of a group of pupils -45-belonging to two to three different grade levels like grades 1, 2 and 3 or grades 4,5 an 6 with each class handled by only one teacher known as a multigrade mentor using appropriate agency measures that often stress basic literacy skills like reading, ‘riting and ‘rithmetic (3 Rs) coupled with health and livelihood education activities. Bilbao (2007) cited that, teaching multigrade classes is not only hard work; it also entails knowledge and skills in performing the task. The pre-service training of the teacher did not provide for teaching strategies and methodologies in multigrade teaching. In addition, Pascua (2011) said that a multigrade classroom involves children with different skills, abilities, different mental levels and needs......

Teacher Morale

...every individual associated with school systems across our great nation. Teachers are a vital part of the educational system for they provide the motivation and support that pupils need in order to succeed. Yet, teachers also need to be motivated and supported in order to be productive. Teacher morale could suffer due to constant stress of trying to meet the educational goals. Improving teacher morale has many benefits in that it can help teachers to maintain a positive attitude and be happier at work (Govindarajan, 2012). Ellanberg as cited by Govindarajan (2012) found that where morale was high, schools showed an increase in pupils’ academic achievement. Conversely, low levels of morale can lead to decreased teacher productivity and burnout. Recent studies found out that the academic achievement of pupils in the Division of Antique did not meet the standard set by the Department of Education (Arguelles, 2012; Ople,2012; Doronila, 2011; and Cabasan, 2011). Moreover, as observed by the researcher being one of the teachers in the division, the attitudes and enthusiasm of teachers towards their work seems below the standards also. This situation aroused the interest of the researcher to conduct a study to examine the level of teachers’ morale in relation to pupils’ academic achievement, hence this study. Statement of the Problem This study aimed to determine the relationship between teachers’ morale and pupils’ academic achievement in public elementary schools in......

...Abstract This paper compares the effectiveness of online forum discussion between quantitative and qualitative subjects offered to learners of Open University Malaysia (OUM). OUM adopted by OUM for its open and distance learning (ODL) comprises three components; self-managed learning, face-to-face interactions and online learning through myLMS to facilitate teaching and learning process. The nature of online learning requires high commitment from the learners, especially self-managed learning and collaborative online learning. Learning quantitative subjects such as mathematics or finance in a conventional environment is very demanding and it is difficult to grasp by a majority of learners compared to learning qualitative subjects such as management or marketing. The same problem existed in learning these subjects through e-learning. Therefore, interactions between the academic staff or tutors with the learners and also amongst learners are important. Thus, it is critical that quality and effective teaching and learning progression take place in online forum discussion. Community of Inquiry (CoI) is the most accepted model for online learning. The model as suggested by Garrison, Anderson and Archer (2000) stated that online learning occurs through the interaction of three domains: teaching presence, social presence and cognitive presence. Research findings indicate that there the mean score for all the three domains of CoI are relatively the same for both quantitative and......
