Teaching is a difficult job. The ultimate reward is knowing that you have the opportunity to have an impact on a young person’s life. However, not every student is created equal. Most teachers will tell you that they don’t have favorites, but the truth is that there are students who possess certain characteristics that make them ideal pupils. These students are naturally endearing to teachers, and it is difficult not to embrace them because they make your job easier. Read on to discover the 10 traits all great students possess.

教学是一项艰巨的工作。 最终的回报是有机会对年轻人的生活产生影响。 然而,并非每个学生都是平等的。 大多数老师会告诉你老师不会偏爱哪位学生,但事实是,有些学生具有某些特长,成为理想的学生。 这些学生自然很喜欢老师,老师也很难不喜欢他们,因为这些学生让老师的工作更轻松。 一起来了解所有优秀学生所具备的10个特征。

01 .  They Ask Questions

Most teachers want students to ask questions when they do not understand a concept that is being taught. It is truly the only way a teacher knows whether you really understand something. If no questions are asked, then the teacher has to assume that you understood that concept. Good students aren’t afraid to ask questions because they know that if they do not get a particular concept, it could hurt them later on when that skill is expanded. Asking questions is often beneficial to the class as a whole because chances are if you have that question, there are other students who have that same question.

大多数老师希望学生不理解上课的内容时提出问题。 这是让老师知道你是否真正了解上课内容的唯一方式。 如果学生没有问题,那么老师必须假设你理解了这个概念。 优秀的学生不怕提问,因为他们知道,如果他们没有理解一个特定的概念,那么当拓展时,它可能会阻碍他们的学习。 提出问题通常对整个班级有益,因为如果你有这个问题,那么其他学生也有同样的问题。
 

02 . They're Hard Workers

The perfect student isn’t necessarily the smartest student. There are plenty of students who are blessed with natural intelligence but lack the self-discipline to hone that intelligence. Teachers love students who choose to work hard no matter what their level of intelligence is. The hardest working students will ultimately be the most successful in life. Being a hard worker in school means completing assignments on time, putting your maximum effort into every assignment, asking for extra help when you need it, spending the time to study for tests and quizzes, and recognizing weaknesses and looking for ways to improve.

完美的学生不一定是最聪明的学生。 有很多学生拥有天生的智慧,但缺乏自律来磨练智力。 教师喜欢那些选择努力工作的学生,无论他们的智力水平如何。 最勤奋的学生最终将成为人生中最成功的。 成为一名勤奋的学生意味着按时完成作业,将最大的努力投入到每项任务中,在需要时寻求额外帮助,花时间学习,识别不足之处并寻找改进方法。

03 . They're Involved

Being involved in extra-curricular activities can help a student gain confidence, which can improve academic success. Most schools provide a plethora of extracurricular activities that students can participate in. Most good students get involved in some activity whether it is athletics, Future Farmers, or student council. These activities provide so many learning opportunities that a traditional classroom simply can’t. These activities also provide opportunities to take on leadership roles and they often teach people to work together as a team to accomplish a common goal.

参与课外活动可以帮助学生获得信心,这可以提高学业成功率。 大多数学校提供大量的课外活动,学生都可以积极参加。大多数优秀学生参加一些活动,无论是田径运动,未来农民还是学生会。 这些活动提供了许多学习机会,传统教室根本无法做到这一点。 这些活动还提供了担任领导角色机会, 他们经常教人们团结一致, 共同实现目标。

04 . They're Leaders

Teachers love good students who are natural leaders within their classroom. Whole classes have their own unique personalities and often those classes with good leaders are good classes. Likewise, those classes that lack peer leadership can be the most difficult to handle. Leadership skills are often innate. There are those who have it and those who don’t. It is also a skill that develops over time amongst your peers. Being trustworthy is a key component of being a leader. If your classmates don’t trust you, then you won't be a leader. If you are a leader amongst your peers, you have the responsibility to lead by example and the ultimate power to motivate others to be successful.

教师喜欢在课堂上天生具有领导力的优秀学生。 整个班级都有自己独特的个性,通常那些有优秀领导者的班级都是好班级。 同样,那些缺乏同伴领导力的课程可能是最难处理的。 领导技能通常是天生的。 有人拥有它而有人没有。 它也是一种随着时间在同龄人中发展的技能。 值得信赖是成为领导者的关键组成部分。 如果你的同学不信任你,那你就不会成为领导者。 如果您是同行中的领导者,您有责任以身作则,以及激励他人取得成功的最终力量。

 

05 . They're Motivated

Motivation comes from many places. The best students are the ones who are motivated to be successful. Likewise, students who lack motivation are the ones who are the hardest to reach, are often in trouble, and eventually drop out of school.
Students who are motivated to learn are easy to teach. They want to be at school, want to learn, and want to succeed. Motivation means different things to different people. There are very few people that aren’t motivated by something. Good teachers will figure out how to motivate most students in some way, but those students who are self-motivated are far easier to reach than those who aren’t.
动机来自很多地方。 最好的学生是那些有动力获得成功的学生。 同样,缺乏动力的学生是最难接触的学生,经常遇到麻烦,最终辍学。

有动力学习的学生很容易教。 他们想要去学校,想要学习,并希望成功。 动机对不同的人意味着不同的东西。 很少有人没有被某些东西激励。 好老师会弄清楚如何以某种方式激励大多数学生,但那些自我激励的学生比那些没有学习动力的学生容易接触。

 

06 . They're Problem Solvers

No skill is lacking more than that of the ability to be a problem solver. With the school standards requiring students to be adept at problem-solving, this is a serious skill that schools have to work extensively at developing. Students who possess true problem-solving skills are few and far between in this generation largely because of the accessibility that they have to information.

Those students who do possess true problem-solving abilities are rare gems that teachers love. They can be used as a resource to help develop other students into becoming problem solvers.

没有什么技能比问题解决者的能力更缺乏。 由于学校的标准要求学生善于解决问题,这是一项严肃的技能,学校必须广泛开展工作。 拥有真正解决问题技能的学生在这一代人中很少,主要是因为他们对信息的可访问性。

那些拥有真正解决问题能力的学生是老师喜欢的稀有宝石。 他们可以作为老师的助手,帮助其他学生成为问题解决者。

07 . They Seize Opportunities

One of the greatest opportunities in contory is that every child has a free and public education. Unfortunately, not every person takes full advantage of that opportunity. It is true that every student must attend school for some period of time, but that doesn’t mean that every student seizes that opportunity and maximizes their learning potential.

The opportunity to learn is undervalued in some where. Some parents don’t see value in education and that's passed on to their children. It is a sad reality that is often overlooked in the school reform movement. The best students take advantage of the opportunities they are afforded and value the education they receive.

国家给予每个孩子接受免费的公共教育的机会。 不幸的是,并非每个人都充分利用这个机会。 确实,每个学生都必须在一段时间内上学,但这并不意味着每个学生都抓住这个机会并最大限度地发挥他们的学习潜力。

有些地区,学习机会被低估了。 有些父母认为教育没有价值,而且还传给了孩子。 这是一个令人悲伤的现实,在学校改革运动中经常被忽视。 最好的学生可以利用他们所获得的机会,重视他们接受的教育。

 

08 . They're Solid Citizens

Teachers will tell you that classes full of students who follow the rules and procedures have a better chance at maximizing their learning potential. Students who are well behaved are likely to learn more than their counterparts who become student discipline statistics. There are plenty of smart students who are discipline problems. In fact, those students are often the source of ultimate frustration for teachers because they will likely never maximize their intelligence unless they choose to change their behavior.

Students who are well behaved in class are easy for teachers to deal with, even if they struggle academically. But teachers will try to move mountains for students who are polite, respectful, and follow the rules.

老师会告诉你,全班的学生谁遵循的规则和程序都是最大限度地发挥他们的学习潜能更好的机会。 表现良好的学生可能比不收纪律的学生学得更多。 有很多聪明的学生都是纪律问题。 事实上,这些学生往往是教师最终受挫的根源,因为他们可能永远不会最大化发挥他们的智力,除非他们选择改变他们的行为。

即使学生在学业上很努力,在课堂上表现良好的学生也很容易被教师处罚。 但教师会尝试为那些有礼貌的,懂得尊重并遵守纪律的学生解决学习的难题。

09 . They Have a Support System

These are people that have your best interest in mind. They push you to success, offer advice, and guide and direct your decisions throughout your life. In school, they attend parent/teacher conferences, make sure your homework is done, require you to have good grades, and generally motivate you to set and reach academic goals. They are there for you in times of adversity and they cheer for you in times that you are successful. Having a great support system gives you an advantage definitely。

这些是您最关心的人。 他们会推动您走向成功,提供建议,引导和指导您的一生。 在学校,他们参加家长/教师会议,确保完成家庭作业,要求你取得好成绩,并通常激励你设定和达到学业目标。 它们在逆境中为陪伴你,并且在你成功的时候为你欢呼。 拥有一个强大的家庭支持会给你带来优势。

10 . They're Trustworthy

Being trustworthy is a quality that will endear you not only to your teachers but also to your classmates. No one wants to surround themselves with people whom they ultimately cannot trust. Teachers love students and classes that they trust because they can give them liberties that often provide learning opportunities they would not be afforded otherwise. Good students value opportunities to prove that they are trustworthy.

值得信赖的是一种品质,不仅可以让您的老师,也可以给您的同学。 没有人愿意与他们最终无法信任的人围绕在一起。 教师喜欢他们信任的学生和课程,因为他们可以给予他们自由,往往提供他们无法提供的学习机会。优秀学生非常重视证明自己值得信赖的机会。
