Teaching Students using Literature

Literature has been regarded as the most underestimated subject however it is not so. It helps us reflect our understanding. Literature helps the mind develop and understand situations as students embed themselves in the given scenario coming up to something which they think is more appropriate for the desired case. Literature helps explore societal issues as well and therefore is an important aspect for learning through cognition. Literature helps students make more cognitive decisions and through such comprehension students are able to withstand difficult challenges in the world. Learning through literature has always been a better case as literature provides with the past, the present and sometimes the Future as well. Through reading students can also improve upon their perception about the general world and biases are mostly eliminated through the use of better literature. Engaging into discussion is also a good tactic that makes students learn very well. More will be emphasized as we move along this study. The study aim to cover 5 important aspects of learning through literature and a comprehensive guide on how to tackle students of different grades is also to be dealt with.
First we need to understand the student teacher relationship and its importance for the benefit of the student. A solitary mark of a successful teacher is the capacity to use an array of research-based instructional strategies.
Strategies enhancing students’ performance
Researches have identified eight instructional strategies that enhance student achievement.
1. Reinforcing endeavor and providing appreciation: By reinforcing effort and providing recognition, teachers highlight students’ efforts that make a difference in their levels of achievement.
2. Summarizing: through this process the students can analyze information, thus strengthening their understanding of the content.
3. Activating former familiarity: moving back in time or highlighting cues which enables the students to learn or experience and thus help activate students’ prior knowledge.
4. Homework and practice: this makes a student grasp more upon the material involved.
5. Others include the classroom practices connected with the instructional category of identifying similarities and differences including comparison tasks.
6. Nonlinguistic representations: this is special as students learn more effectively by viewing pictures and other stuff rather tan reading. Nonlinguistic representations can take a variety of forms including graphic representations, physical models, mental pictures, drawings, and kinesthetic classroom activities.
7. Joint learning: group interaction is a tool which accelerates cooperative learning. There are five defining elements of cooperative learning: positive interdependence, face-to-face promoting interaction, individual and group accountability, interpersonal and small-group skills, and group processing.
8. Setting goals: this directs the student to a certain standpoint and feedback is the most important tool of appreciation and direction Goal setting establishes a direction for learning. Involving students in the goal-setting process can increase students’ accountability for their own learning.
