Healthy and productive interpersonal relationships between teachers and students are critical in order to enhance successful student outcomes. According to Dr. Theo Wubbels (Professor of Education, Admissions Dean, Utrecht University), “Leadership depends on the teacher’s capacity to adapt.” Teachers must be able to show “all kinds of behavior when the situation asks for it.” Wubbels, along with top educator-bloggers from around the world, shared perspectives with Global Education Publisher CMRubinWorld on the best ways a teacher can demonstrate leadership in the classroom.
Educator Beth Holland notes that teachers must have empathy, and “remember what it felt like to struggle and then achieve the desired skill or concept.”
Teacher and thought leader Vicki Davis suggests consulting students for input on lessons and assignments. Richard Wells from New Zealand suggests that students be given more control over assignments. Wells points to how children become increasingly dependent on the aid of parental figures and that this is limiting their abilities to be independent thinkers.
