Who is your favorite teacher in life

Are you in class and have no idea about the topic? But you have to get a better grade in the subject. Try these tricks.

1. Slime is out. But casually mentioning to the teacher from time to time what you like about the lesson can work wonders.


With fun to learning success - that's how it's done

2. Stand out positively. You do not want to be intruded by the teacher without being asked? Then it helps if you have already noticed him or her: Get in touch right after the start of the lesson and ask something - anything. Then you're off the hook. Because your teacher has the feeling that he or she has already attacked you during the lesson.


3. Smile. Every now and then, smile at your teacher. Your teacher will get a good impression of you. This also has a positive effect on your grade.


4. Behave yourself. Pupils who disrupt the class, constantly talk to their neighbors or do not listen do not make a good impression. This will also have an impact on the grading. So an important rule for good grades: Don't misbehave. And oh yes: Always smile nicely.


5. Report. That you get good grades with good oral cooperation is nothing new. But what to do if you have no idea what the subject is? You pretend to have them. The teacher just got on someone. Then get in touch at this very moment. He or she will think you're involved. But now it's the turn of another student first. If he or she takes your turn afterwards, you simply repeat what has already been said in other words.


6. Nod. Your teacher explains something. Occasionally nod. This signals to the teacher that you are paying attention and thinking for yourself - even if your thoughts are completely different.


7. Friend of the teacher's favorite. Is there a student that your teacher is particularly fond of? Then you should get on well with him or her too. Just before the lesson starts, talk to this teacher from time to time so that your teacher will notice. Your teacher will put you in touch with him - tada and one more plus.


8. Don't constantly contradict. You don't always agree with the teacher. Don't let him or her feel it too often. Agree with your teacher once in a while. So he or she thinks you get along.


9. Play back the teacher's words. Have you made a note of what the teacher said at some point on a particular topic? Then just get in touch at the appropriate point and repeat that in other words. The teacher will have the impression that you are paying attention, even though you have actually only memorized one sentence on the subject.


10. Everyday stories. You don't really have a clue about the topic, but you have a story from your everyday life that fits the topic a bit? Then get in touch and tell them! But it has to look like the story fits really well into the lesson. It goes z. B. the balcony scene in Romeo and Juliet. Tell them that you saw a new movie in which a man was standing under a woman's balcony (although it may not be entirely true). Just say this is an example of the Romeo and Juliet balcony scene being featured over and over again in modern movies. Your teacher will believe that you have thought and internalized the material.


Conclusion: As you can see, there are a few ways you can outsmart your teacher. Unfortunately, they are not a substitute for study, but they may help improve your grade a little.
