Dear Reader, Teaching has been a time honored tradition for hundreds of years. Whether you want to pursue a career in teaching or you wish to volunteer your time as a teacher, it is important to learn key techniques which can improve your teaching abilities. Without the right tools and information, it could take you years and cost you a small fortune to discover the secrets to teaching. Instead of spending a fortune on so-called experts or knocking yourself out with the old trial and error method, there is an easier way to be the teacher you have always dreamed of. Now theres good news .... I wont deny that there are a ton of books out there on teaching. Unfortunately the problem with most books on the subject of teaching is that they are either filled with plenty of promises and no solid techniques and strategies to back up those promises or they contain only one or two pieces of useful information and not a comprehensive look at everything you need to know to succeed in teaching. Introducing The Teachers Guide! Teachers Guide breaks the mold of all the other teaching books and manuals you have heard and read about. It presents solid, proven steps to help you learn how to be the teacher youve always wanted. Sounds too good to be true? Its not and I can prove it with Teachers Guide! But, first a word of introduction. My name is Dan. A few years ago I found myself in a situation not too different from your own. Like almost everyone else, I longed to be a better teacher, but I had no idea where to start! None of the books I had read on teaching had been able to solve my problem. Some of them were so mired down in fancy words and technicalities that it was a miracle I ever got past the first chapter! Others might have passed on a helpful hint or two, but did not solve my problems. Thats when it hit me! If I couldnt find a comprehensive guide on teaching, then why not create my own? I was tired of flipping back and forth through tons of books for the few bits of information that could help me; but I reasoned that if I put all those little tidbits of info together then I might actually be able to begin understanding the secrets to teaching. The next morning I furiously began to read through all of the teaching books that I had purchased over the past three years and take down the pertinent notes. I didnt stop there either. I swallowed my pride and enlisted the help of people that I knew who had been personally successful in teaching. It took awhile to sort through all of the information I had gathered and compile the notes I received from the experts I consulted, but when I was finished I sat back and was completely stunned. Right here in front of me was the information that I had been seeking all along! From the notes I had taken from several articles on the subject of teaching, as well as my own experiments, I had comprised a comprehensive compendium on the subject of teaching. I sat back in stunned amazement! It was all there! The Work of the Teacher How to Stimulate Thinking The Importance of Play in Education Classroom Lessons The Importance of Individual Differences How to Cultivate Moral Attitudes Then I decided to try an experiment and put all of my hard work to the test. The next morning I awoke with new determination. This time I would not fail! Suddenly, I was excited! I absolutely could not believe the difference. Suddenly it was all so clear! I could easily implement proven strategies without having to wade through a mountain of fancy words and difficult to understand terms. What happened next was nothing short of amazing! These strategies not only worked, but the results were completely astonishing. As my success with teaching grew, I started to feel guilty. I knew there were a lot more people out there who wanted the same solutions I had found. Somehow, it just didnt seem right to keep it to myself. One night as I made some changes to my book, I wondered how many other people might have the same problem? After all, if I couldnt find a decent comprehensive teaching manual, what were the chances anyone else could? Given the tremendous success I had encountered using my manual; I was sure that other people could take the same easy to read and understands strategies and achieve success as well. Right now youre probably thinking, Yeah, right. Theres a ton of teaching books out there. What makes you and your book so different? I wont deny for a minute that there are some good teaching books out there-after all Ive read most of them, if not all of them. The difference, however; is that my book blows all the others out of the water because it doesnt just focus on one area of the game. You get everything you need to understand how to teach successfully. Nothing, absolutely nothing, is left out. All the fundamentals are there. And thats just a small taste of what you will get when you order the Teachers Guide Absolutely everything anyone would ever need to learn how to successfully teach is contained within this impressive work. Okay, Im sold, but whats this incredible resource going to cost me? When I first began to think about putting my manual on the market, my first thought was to create a seminar where people could actually get the benefits in a hands-on way. I know not everyone loves to read, so that seemed to be a great solution. But, I quickly realized how time consuming that would be for everyone so instead, I decided I wanted as many people as possible to reap the benefits of this fabulous manual. So, Im willing to slash the cost just so you can take advantage of the incredible information within Teachers Guide.

African teachers should start blogging: 6 Reasons why They Must


What is blogging? You may ask.

Blogging is just like online journalism. You’ve got something to tell the world- anything at all- blog it!

And I believe teachers have so much to tell the world; that is why teachers need to go into blogging. It’s only unfortunate African teachers have a pose of indifference!

Before I started The African Teachers blog, I had taken time to search for teachers and educational blogs owned by Africans. The discovery was and is still appalling, as you could count very few of them. In fact over 80% of the ones you see are owned by South Africans; the rest of Africans are sleeping off.

To a casual thinker, it means nothing. But, truly it means a lot. It simply shows the depth of self demotivational tendencies characteristic of the average African teacher.

And the reasons for this are not far-fetched:
o   We are too lazy to write and publish articles;

o   We have too much workload that we have little or no time to engage in another time-consuming activity-blogging;

o   We have low self-esteem and therefore think we are not good enough to blog;

o   We lack self-developmental drive; our only interest is to ‘work’ and earn monthly salary;

o   The cost of internet is so high we can’t afford it;

o   You can add other possible reasons up to a million…

Unfortunately, none of these reasons is justifiable enough to keep us this down for too long.

I foresee a future in Africa that only teachers can rescue. Put in another way, Africa can never get it right until African teachers come out of their hiding to resuscitate the dwindling fortunes of African education, which is where our hope of survival lies.

But to do that, they need to have a voice. Blogging gives African teachers that voice.

So why should African teachers go into blogging? What do we all stand to gain?

Here I outlined 6 reasons and benefits of blogging for African teachers

            Also read:

            4 ways to develop the act of writing

Brand visibility

A lot of African teachers are operating from the rural areas, making it difficult for them to be exposed to the global scene. In that case, it is very possible to have a highly productive teacher, who deserves a global award, but is not known.

The point being made here is that nobody knows you and your great work as a teacher except you create a global brand for yourself. And you don’t do that by being a local champion. You have to come alive!

Blogging and social media create such platform for you. The internet has no cultural boundaries. Let the world know and celebrate your giftedness through your write-ups. You need to start blogging.

Global engagement

All your efforts and goodwill can only make you a local champion, which is not good enough. You’re not called and gifted as a teacher to have just a limited impact with your locals. You are gifted to have a global impact.

But how do you do that while operating from the African rural village?

Keep thinking!

Embrace blogging. With it, you can still be in thatched hut of that African interior village and be a celebrity around the world through your enriching articles.

Writing Skill improvement

Africans have a lot of problems with writing. We have not yet developed really well in the skill of writing. And we can’t until we do something about it.

Even teachers!

I have been at the school management level for over 5 years and have seen a lot in this regard. You can see a lot of ‘brilliant’ teachers who could speak well, teach excellently and do virtually every other things right, but when it comes to writing; they give you the shock of your life.

But then, the only way one can develop the skill of writing is by continuous engagement in writing for the public. This is because you would likely be criticized and you would want to learn in other to offer the best.

I assure you; you can’t blog for a period of time without improving your writing skill.

Solving problems

Today, millions of searches are made on the most popular search engines like Google and Bing as a lot of people (including teachers) find them as resource tools to solve their problems.

But mind you- somebody took time to write down such valuable information that is now solving your own problems. You too can solve another’s problem through blogging.

There is no information today on the internet that is not useful to a particular set of persons. Imagine the joy of providing answers to someone’s heart-rending questions!

                        Correcting the ills of the society

A lot of teachers are concerned about the ills of the society especially the ones prevalent in their countries.

Africa is already drenched in endemic ills and corruption. And African teachers, like every other citizen are concerned, but nobody gives them audience to air their views on the way forward.

As a teacher, your voice can easily be heard through blogging rather than through those backyard arguments in the workplace.

You’ve got the best platform to air your views and opinions about the ills of the society and as well suggest workable solution, with blogging.

Source of income

Dear African teacher, may I tell you that one of the easiest ways to add to your poor monthly remuneration is by blogging.

Of course when you start blogging, you might have other reasons as outlined above for that. But bet me; if you know what you are doing, and doing it right, blogging might end up becoming your major source of income.

As a teacher, I will always suggest you blog about education and learning. And you’ve got an advantage.

You have already made materials for your blog-
-         your lesson notes over the years can be turned into resource materials for your blog posts

-         your classroom experiences over the years

-         educational news and happenings around you

Dear African teacher, rise up and do something. Blogging is for sure, good for you.
