And good classes are ones that get the work done and help everyone else, but have a laugh while doing it.

    Qualities of a good student are one who respects others and the teacher. Another quality is paying attention so you can understand on what you are doing which makes a successful student. Also someone who always talks in the classroom is annoying and wasting our learning time.

    Some qualities on a good classroom would be one with all students participating in the classroom and wanting the same thing which is an education.

  20. I think that some qualities of a good teacher are that they make learning fun, they interact with the students on the student level, they help you learn in different ways and are supportive.

    Some qualities of a good student are that they are good listeners, they make good decisions, they pay attention, they ask questions, and they respect those around them in class.

    Qualities of a good class could be including everyone in the discussions, respect the teacher and other students and don't make fun of anyone and their questions.

  21. A good teacher is there to challenge his or her students to do their best and learn as much as possible. Class can be a lot of fun while still challenging. Teachers also need to get a class excited about a class. It is easy to learn when you want to learn.

    A good student must always try their best in everything. The smartest student doesn’t always get the best grades. The student that tries the hardest and spends his or her time wisely gets the grades.

    Qualities of a good class are they are always paying attention and ready to learn. The class is excited to learn and is respectful of others and of the teacher. A major quality of a good class is that class is always participating.

  22. Qualities of a good teacher can range from being supportive to having the attitude to teach. The most important quality of a teacher is that he/she will go the extra mile to make a learning experience excellent enough to prepare the student in the specific topic weather it be math, science, or a life lesson.

    A student that is willing to learn and has the desire to do the right thing will make a learning experience even better. If the student wants to learn you can bet on that student to succeed in the subject they are learning.

    A classroom is also very import in the learning experience. The class needs to be safe, calming, and a place were everybody feels involved.

  23. Some qualities of a good teacher are things like making a class entertaining, It seems easier to learn if you i am entertained. also kindness. I want to feel comfortable asking my teacher something or raising my voice in class,

    A good classroom is a friendly classroom. One with fun posters or cool painted walls or cool displays. Also a good classroom also should be a place where everyone feels comfortable.

  24. The good qualities of teachers I’ve had are letting me come in for help when I need it, working one on one when I do come in, having good contact with my parents, and being fairly strict. While I like all these qualities, I believe the best quality is when a teacher knows when to be strict and when to be fun. This is important because a teacher needs to be strict so that students do teir work, but the teacher needs to let students have some fun so that they are motivated to work. I also really like working one on one with a teacher because I feel like I understand the material better. Lastly, I like it when my teacher keeps my parents involved so that they can help me at home and know what is happening at school.

  25. I think that some good qualities of a good teacher are making their class enjoyable to all their students. Also to encourage their students to do their best.

    Qualities of a good student are wanting to learn and getting all his/her assignments in. Also getting involved.

    Some qualities of a good class are being respectful and polite.

  26. An important quality of a good teacher, in my opinion, would be the ability to entertain and captivate while educating. This is a good way to keep the class engrossed in what they're learning while having fun doing so. Class activities, exciting projects, and maybe even music in the classroom would all be great ideas to facilitate a new way of learning. I also believe that a teacher's willingness to be open minded and available to their students will help the class feel less stressed about getting a question wrong and more willing to participate. These are just a few of the many good qualities of a teacher.

    A good student should always be prepared
    and excited to learn. If you're not prepared then you'll fall short of the expectations, adding unnecessary stress on yourself and ultimately more work. If you're not excited to learn something that could help you for the future you'll begin to lose interest and miss out on something that could possibly change your life. Also, they should ALWAYS study and ask questions when they need help. This is a good way to learn from your mistakes and achieve your goals.

    A good classroom consist of a friendly environment with plenty to help keep you focused. For instance, wheely chairs. In a recent study on student learning behaviors, it was found that the majority of kids who were involved in an alternate activity while learning, like chewing gum, rolling back and forth in a wheely chair, or listening to music, tend to learn faster and retain more information. Remove a students focus and you remove their ability and desire to learn.

  27. Quality's of good teachers would be one that is happy and opened minded to the students opinions
    and treats every student fairly. Quality's of good students would be one that is prepared for class and is ready to learn and one that is not afraid to ask a question even if the question is obvious.
    Quality's of a good class would be clean environment and activities to help you think such as chewing gum, chairs with wheels and listening to music.

  28. Good Teacher- Create a good learning enviorment and helps/encourages the students to work. Good student- Does all their work and do what they have to do to understand when they don't. Good class- Creates a learning enviorment that makes the class fun and makes students able to connect to the subject.

  29. What are the quality’s of a good teacher? To me a good teacher is fun exiting and has lots of energy. these quality’s are important because there energy and excitement keeps the class engaged and interested in the class because no one wants to get up and come to school at 7:21 to listen to a tired crabby quite teacher. They should also help students when they need it but not constantly sit there and tell them what to do even though they already know what to do. One more quality that makes a great teacher is there flexibility in teaching methods for example they don’t use a power point to lecture every day they use all of there recourses smart boards, chalk boards, dry erase boards, projectors, text books, internet, etc.
    The quality’s of a good student are that they work hard get along with other students they keep up with the class and there assignments they are respectful to there teacher as well as there piers. they come into class ready to learn not to sit there and talk with friends.
    The quality’s of a good class are that they work together to achieve a higher understanding of English or any other subject. Piers help one another when someone doesn’t understand because the teacher is not the only one that can help.

  30. To me qualities of a good teacher are if they are in a good mood and if they can teach the class in a fun way. I think its easier for the class to learn if you are friends with the students and if the teacher is nice, fun, and funny.

    I think a good class is a class that listens to what the teacher is saying and respects the teacher. I think the class will learn more and easier if they get involved.

  31. what i look for in a teacher in a good teacher that she or he is fun and doesn't give out busy work. Busy work is homework that is meant for nothing. Another good teacher is that the class is fun and makes me exited to be there. thats what i look in a good teacher.

  32. A good quality of a teacher is that they are relaxed. If the teacher is relaxed then the student can feel relaxed too.

    A good quality of a student is that they respect their teacher and peer. If this happens then the teacher doesn't have to waste the class’s time lecturing him.

    A good quality of a class would be that they all participate. If the class participates then it will make the class more exciting because not just one kid answers all the questions.
