Create engaged students!
I kept thinking about the reasons for the dramatic change in my life. I have been talked about time management hundreds of time, have seen the Importance/Urgency diagram dozens of time and have fully understood the significance of managing my time to achieve excellence..yes trust me but it just didn't work on me somehow. I was still the old me with procrastination and always rushed for deadlines. Until two days ago, a two hours class changed my way of thinking and my behavior. I still cannot make the statement that it changed my life, but I am trying to make it a habit and i am totally convienced that it will.
How amazing it is! Except for being infected by the personality charm of our tutor, the engagement that has been created throughout the class is vital. He creates the atomosphere that stimulates me to open my mouth asking questions or sharing ideas with my incoherent english without feeling shame. Not only me, it happens on every students. I have never seen everyone of students being so engaged in classes throughout my academic life. Everyday before sleeping time, I will recall the classes and write down my thoughts, maybe this is the so-called reflective thinking and it feels good and satisfied. I still have not figured out how he did it, but i think the ability to create engaged students is a significant component for a teacher, as the same for a leader.
Cannot help to say that after hours of reading and study, writing an entry is just relaxing.
