5 Causes of Teacher Stress and Solutions

1 Overcrowded Classroom

The stress: More students means more work. Teachers have to care about all of them and be responsible for their future.

Solution: Divide the students into groups and name a leader. The leader will take care of the group; he or she should deal with the problem first before reporting it to the teacher. Group members will learn from each other and share their knowledge. They can conduct discussion for what they feel confused of.

2 Grading Paper

The stress: Teachers have to grade homework, test and class work. This will often lead to heavy workload and make teachers work till midnight.

Solution: Online testing comes to be popular. Teachers can use software to make tests and students can take them online and then the tests will be automatically graded. In this field, Quiz Creator can do a great job. So, propose to schools to purchase online test software for every teacher.

3 Administrative Paperwork

The stress: Teachers have to hand in numerous reports to their superiors. Often, these reports are just for back-check, but they have to collect much information in order to write these reports.

Solution: Negotiate with the superiors before writing the reports and find out if something else can replace with reports. Such as, teacher can make small presentations instead of reports or let the student collect information for them if reports are really needed.

4 Meeting with Parents

The stress: Angry faces of the parents are the one of the most challenging things.

Solution: The reason why the parents are angry is that they worry about their kids. They think their kids may not be educated as well as they should be. In this situation, a report that can prove what you have done is very important, show them what you have done and promise that you will do a lot more to educate their kids better.

5 Challenging Students

The stress: Rebellious students who don't listen to you and do everything against you make you upset.

Solution: Listen to them. Rebellious students often lack attention and they do a lot of bad things to get attention on them. So a teacher should show his or her love for rebellious students and listening is always the best and simplest way. Teachers can send information like "I care about you" "I want to help you" to the students through just listening.

How do Quizzes Bring High-efficiency Teaching?

We, teachers, with our own infinite wisdom, teach and cultivate students. As one of our teachers’ teaching methods, quizzing always plays an important role on teaching. For example, we make quizzes to measure students’ learning performance, improve our teaching strategies and get better teaching effects. There are some quizzes that teachers can make to bring high efficiency on our teaching:

1. Personality quiz — Know more about our students
As we all are aware that knowing the students’ psychology is the premise to perform an excellent teaching scheme. Well, a personality quiz about students’ habits, character, interest, etc. may do a favor for us. By analyzing the test results, we can understand students’ likes and dislikes, to take better and more suitable teaching strategies. On the basis of knowing students, we will have special strategies for - different students when we implement a teaching plan. Then the whole process of teaching scheme may be carried out smoothly.

2. Pre-class quiz — Prepare a good teaching scheme
Usually, making a pre-class quiz for the coming class will be effective for our teachers, especially the new unexperienced teachers. The quiz results will distinctly show us how much students have known about the coming class and how we should prepare a high-quality class with clear primary and secondary teaching plan.

3. After-class quiz — Know the teaching effects
When finishing a class, teachers have to get feedback on the class from students. An after-class quiz will provide great help to our teachers. From the quiz results, we may find students have uneven distribution status on mastering the previous class. The next step we need to do is to summarize our own defects and merits of teaching, making appropriate adjustment on teaching scheme for a more effective class.

4. Funny quiz — Make an attractive class
It is certainly advantageous for students knowing more extracurriculum knowledge, such as the World Cup, famous writers, basketball stars, etc. During class, we teachers consciously integrate some funny quizzes with teaching plan. Because the class is not a simply poor but colorful class with particular attractive content, students will have much more interest in the class.

All the quizzes we referred, personality quiz, pre-class quiz, after-class quiz and funny quiz can be tested in two different forms: paper-based quiz and online quiz.

Normally, we make paper quizzes with many complicated steps: editing questions, typesetting, printing tests, organizing taking tests, collecting and grading quizzes, collecting statistic data and analyzing the results, etc. But for the online quizzes, we can easily build them with professional quiz maker software like Wondershare Quiz Creator. Making online quiz, we just need to create quizzes with multimedia and post them online. Then students will take the online quiz via Internet at anywhere anytime and the system that comes with Quiz Creator can collect the quiz results automatically.

It is such an effective, highly functional and convenient way to conduct almost every test we teachers can imagine, why not we take full use of the quizzes to get more high-quality education?
