" Pre-Intro" / Basic Skill 1. Facial Expression (smiling at students)

Teacher's smile is almost the must thing in your class. If you can never smile during your class in any way, I'm afraid that you should quit. Smiling at students is a very fundamental way to teach. You should train your smiling expression by yourself intentionally.
Effect of smiling is so immense. We don’t smile because we’re happy, we’re happy because we smile.
All professional teachers must interact with kids with nice smiling.
I show you detail later.

What are Basic Skills for teachers?

“Basic Skills for teachers” are really simple, fundamental teaching skills that I assembled. Originally Mr.Yoichi Mukoyama who is one of the most influential teachers in Japan advocated these kinds of effective skills in his teacher certification system. I picked up and organized really fundamental skills among them. I want students who are going to be teachers to learn and get all these skills before standing in front of kids.
If you want to be a teacher like remarkable, effective, attractive, making kids engage, I strongly believe that you should initially acquire these skills.
In this blog, I would like to show "the Basic Skills" at first such as how effective they are, how to learn them, and how to use them in the classroom.
