Here are the details to manage teaching-learning and Strategy

Some problems in the classroom and fix:

What is your first reaction to entering the class?

Some reactions, we need to solve and make silence and some other problems to fix. What about their attention? How can attract their attention?

Do some strategy like greetings, personal question. Students should know the outcome of the class and the teacher also knows the outcome as well. If some students can write only in the class lecture except listening which one the best one? Because during writing we can not concentrate on the topics. Otherwise, if we don’t write then we forget the topics. Hence, which one is the best method for the classroom?
