I was talking to another teacher today and they asked me a question and we wondered why students don't figure this out andmake the most of it.
The question was about why students feel the need to talk all the time. Or atleast why they feel the need to talk over eachother. It was posed wondering why students haven't figured out that if they listen when they're supposed to listen and talk when they're supposed to talk that you would have more friends and get more recognition and approval. Eventually the good behavior will lead to tangible results and more things they really enjoy doing.
If you have any thoughts on this, start a discussion. If you have possible solutions, we'd love to hear them.
Here is situation that I have had happen a few times lately. There are a few students who insist that they want to be the teacher. They tell me when things are done and how to do them the right way. They sometimes give me small compliments telling me that I'm doing it right.
What type of personality would you think they are?
How would you as a fellow student interact with them?
How would you as a teacher interact with them?
