Hello Everyone !
i am Physics Teacher ... Teaching 9 - 12 grades in UAE ..
when i was a student ... Teachers use to guide and deliver the lecture and then we as a student use to give exams on the basis of some our research and teacher's guidance ... now here teaching is demanding some other measures... like teacher must be a there in lecture for guidance only, lecture should be based on activities and teacher should not speak more than 10 mints ... like 75 - 25 % contribution of student and teacher during class.. Students 75 % and teacher's 25% ...
my problem is that ... if i am explaining something new ... how can i derive and give concept of particular topic within 10mints
lesson planning can never be so hard as it seems now
plus syllabus is so lengthy ..and resources are limited ... !

Have you tried the traditional Socratic method? You'd start with a short intro to push the students in a certain direction and then start asking questions. From there you lead the discussion by selecting students and agreeing or disagreeing with what they say and continue to push the discussion forward.

The students will feel they have collectively discovered something new and you can sit back and smile. It's kind of like the martial arts films where the master shows the student once and then watches with a stick to straighten the students posture or control how they move.

Hi there! First of all, welcome to the forum and thank you for sharing your concerns. It sounds like you are facing some challenges in adapting to the new teaching methods in the UAE. It can definitely be difficult to balance the demands of a long syllabus with limited resources and the expectation to have a student-centered classroom.

One way to approach lesson planning in this situation is to focus on the key concepts and skills that you want your students to learn, rather than trying to cover every single topic in the syllabus. This will help you prioritize and use your limited time and resources effectively.

In terms of creating engaging activities for your students, you can try incorporating hands-on experiments, group discussions, and other interactive activities that will not only help students understand the concepts better, but also keep them engaged and interested in the lesson. You can also use technology, such as online simulations or virtual labs, to enhance your lessons.

As for worksheets, you can create them based on the key concepts and skills you want your students to practice and reinforce. You can also use existing worksheets from reputable sources and modify them to fit your lesson objectives.

In terms of time management, you can break down your lesson into smaller chunks and plan for short activities or discussions throughout the lesson. This will help you cover the material within the time limit while also giving your students opportunities to actively participate and contribute.

Remember, lesson planning can be challenging, but with some creativity and flexibility, you can make it work. It's also important to communicate with your colleagues and seek support from your school's resources. Best of luck with your teaching journey!
