The qualities of an effective/productive student include being on time and knowing to focus and get down to work. Teachers know how to make the classroom fun and know when it's time to get to work. They still manage to keep the students attention. The classroom needs and even balance of involvement and teamwork. Good eye contact and a clear voice helps the student learn easier. Laughter is a good icebreaker in a new class, so the teacher needs to know how to get the class to loosen up a little bit.

The qualities of an effective and productive student is someone who wants to be in the class. If you do not want to be there then there is no way you can be a good student. Some of these qualities are doing all homework and doing to what the teacher asks. Also, come to class ready to learn, and don't just sit there with nothing on your desk and stare into space. Teachers need to be fair with the students but also a little harsh to get kids to do things in class. Teachers need to have control of the class. The classroom just needs to be a learnable environment, something simple that doesn't distract too much is great for learning.

The qualities of a productive, effective student are organizational skills, the willingness to work hard, and the willingness to take part in discussions. A key part of a productive classroom is comfortability. If everyone is comfortable then it lightens up the atmosphere making it easier to learn. A successful teacher makes the class fun without making it too distracting.

The qualities of an effective/ productive student are the ability to stay focussed, the willingness to work, and doing all the work assigned to you. An effective teacher is able to help you understand the work but still make it fun. You have to be comfortable in a class because it makes everything easier, and you all have to be able to have a good time.

I think that the qualities of an effectice and productive student would be that the student needs to apply his/herself to the best of their abilities. If you don't then you won't be the most productive you can be. They also need to be organized. If they cant find something that is due, due to the organization skills then thats a problem. I think that an effictive teacher needs to know how to make a class fun yet at the same time know when the class needs to get to work and down to business. But if the teacher wants the kids to open up and be themselves then the classroom needs to be a fun environment.

A student who wants to be productive needs also to be attentive. They need to not only listen in discussions, but also be active and voice their opinions on the subjects being discussed. A good teacher needs to be able to present ideas in different ways to appeal to all the students. By teaching students with different approaches, it will help them understand more. Last, a classroom needs to feel "safe" for everyone in the class so people will participate more.

The qualities of an effective and productive student are organization and participation. An effective and productive teacher must also be organized and be able to relate the information to our lives. An interesting and relaxed environment helps to keep the class focused and working.

The qualaties that make an effective student include showing up prepared with an open mind and ready to learn. The teacher must, in order to be an effective teacher, includes staying on task. Gettig things done while still having fun. The classroom must be organized and on task. They need to ask all sorts of questions to further their understanding of the matter being taught. The class must respect others' points of view and not discourage other students if they ask a question. The class must must be distraction free and stay on task in order for the classroom environment to be productive.

The qualities of an effective/ productive student are organization, concentration, and the willingness to learn (you can not force someone to learn, maybe regergitate but not actually learn the material). The qualities of an effective teacher are patients, and a positive attitude tword teaching. I think that this class like anything else needs organization, everyone one needs to understand, no one should be left out, everyone should be friendly, and an all around good enviroment to learn in.

The qualities of an effective/productive student include being on time and organized so that you are prepared to participate in class, as well as not talking while the teacher or another student is talking. The teacher should also be organized so that they arent scrambling to find what we are doing next. I think that humor is a good way to get the class involved and listening.

I have never been that productive of a student but I can imagin what one would do. I think that an effevtive student would pay attention in class and would put a good amount of care into their homework. A good teacher has to make the class fun while still teaching. A fun teacher can make the class. The class room has to be a fun and welcoming place with posters and such. The classroom shouldn't have anythink too crazy in because we are still children.

An effective student has the qualities of someone that will be well organized and enjoys learning. An effective student has the ability to stay focused on what the teacher is saying and can comprehend the material given to him or her. The student must also be able to complete there homework on a daily bases, but it is ok to miss like a day every once in a while. The teacher must be able to keep the class fun and keep you interested in what she is teaching. They need to not only teach you but let the class teach each other as well. The classroom must be fun and it alows everyone to participate and learn like everyone else.

I think that the qualities of and effective and productive student are responsibility, focus, and determination, also, a good attitude helps. Teachers should try and make the class or subject fun/entertaining. They should make the subject easy to understand and relate it to the students to make them more willing to and eager to learn. A classroom definitely needs to have a good, positive attitude, it needs to be slightly amusing and fresh as opposed to boring and mundane.

I think to be an effective student we need to pay attention in class and do our homework. For you to be an effective teacher i think the most important thing is to be nice to us and not overload us with homework.To have a productive learning environment this class needs to listen to others when they are talking and to not distract others from listning to others.

An effective/productive student would have to have determination and DRIVE to actually want to succeed. Someone who doesn’t want to learn for the future most likely won’t. An effective teacher basically just benefits students learning abilities. A teacher who is effective towards the students proves that that teacher is professional and wants to help students. This classroom would need positive attitudes but still fun things like group projects to make time pass.

The qualities of an effective and productive student is willingly to get to work and putting your time, your all and your best in everything that you do.Always give it a 100% and never give up. Whenever your struggling, the teachers are always there to help you.Also good listening skills, possitive attitude, responsibility and being active in learning would get you far in life.An effective teacher helps the students get far in life and help them achieve their goal.And thats education..everyone of us learn something new everyday and part of it is what the teachers teach us mostly everyday in each subject.And also being able to listen to students ideas as well and talking to them individually, seeing if their okay,because some students are afraid to ask.So sometimes its better if the teacher asks them.And its very exciting for students when their teachers make jokes at times and are happy, because it brings a possitive attitude to the class and make the students feel good and happy to be in that class and learn.

The qualities of a productive student are good focus, organization, and a willingness to learn. On the other side, qualities of a good teacher are being able to be patient and understand/listen to the students. It also helps when the teacher seems interested and enthused by what they are teaching...it, in turn, keeps the class interested. In order to be productive, the classroom should be an environment where the students feel comfortable and at ease. It should be fun and entertaining so that the students want to learn and the teacher looks forward to teaching everyday.

The qualities of an effective student would have to be someone who is always willing to give their 100%. They want to be in the class so that they will gain knowledge. The class should mesh well together. They should know when to talk and when to be serious and get down to business. The teachers role should be one that they know when to have fun (most of the time) and also when it is time to learn. At least being interested in his/her students. Wanting them to do well will always be to their advantage.

Some of the qualities of an effiective/productive student are as follows. Students must come to class prepared and willing to learn. They must have the ability to ask questions and speak their mind. If a student does not want to be in class they are most likley not able to learn to their fullest. A teacher must be willing to work with there students and listen to them. They must be willing to interact with students and ge to know them. In this kind of classroom we must have group disscusions and lots of group work in order to get all of the different ideas that are going on throughout everybody's brain.

Some qualities of an effective and productive student start with organiziation. (cough planners!!) But I think students need to know what is expected of them so they know what the limit is and what expectation mark needs to be met. I think a student that tries their best on homework, in class and taking responsibility for anything that is to go wrong. I think an effective teacher should relate to the students and much as they can. When the student-teacher relationship is more of an advisor/friend, it is easier for the student to want to listen rather than the teacher always yelling and demanding things. I love the way Mrs. Comp's class is run. We all have so much respect for each other and we all WANT to listen, we usually aren't forced. I think that is HUGE. Respect for each other and respect for the work and effort they have put into their project needs to be addressed. :]

The qualities of an effective/productive student are the understanding that they need to work and think to be able to continue and that they generally need to have good work habits to accomplish what they desire. Teachers need to know how to keep the class active without losing track of what needs to be done. For a classroom to be a productive learning environment, there needs to be an understanding between student and teacher that neither is perfect and both need to allow room to get comfortable. Laughter as an icebreaker seems to be a general consensus between my peers.

Some qualities of a productive student are paying attention in class, knowing the given material, and participating activly. A student who has all these qualities can learn and work better in a classroom environment. Still, it is good to have a sense of humor and know when to take it slow and steady for a good school year.

A teacher however, must be able to work with students in need or not and teach them the curriculum well. This means that she/he can lead classroom discussions while allowing students to participate and teach each other. Because we all have our own point-of-views.

The qualities of an effective/productive student mean that they are indulged in the work put forth by the teacher. Every night they go home and do all the work for that night and get it finished, and maybe do some extra just to stay ahead. These are definitely qualities that I am working up to, and qualities that I want to have embedded into my brain by the time I get to college. They are also willing to participate in classroom activities and discussions, and not being afraid to voice an opinion. Although, students have a hard time being effective if the teacher is not. What I look for in a teacher is that they are friendly; almost like they are our age and they just want to hang with us and get to know us. Also, the work they put forward for us to do each night is fun and interesting so that we don’t go home dying from so much boring homework. I want to be able to relate to the teacher and be able to have conversations that don’t only circle around school issues. For our classroom to be effective, needs to be prepared every day for work, and to be apart of the class. I love being in classes that when a question is brought up, we spend all class period figuring it out. That way we all get something out of it, and we walk out of the class satisfied. Furthermore, I am looking forward to this class because personally I see a lot of these traits already in the classroom.

The students in the class need to be motivated and willing to learn. The need to take responsibility for there own education. I think the teacher needs to be patient and knowledgeable. They need to be understanding and helpful. I also think that they should put aside time to work one on one with the students. Respect.
