3401. Educating Our Students Is Great


The teacher has to set an example. He has to. He must have fortitude. He works with a sensitive public, his students. What a responsibility. A nice one anyway. And very positive, moreover. 

I know that most of you like your job as teachers. 

We have to set an example, whatever we do in the classroom, out of it and everywhere else. Even what we do in our private life influences upon our students. 

All this is beautiful. And beauty teaches and educates. It does. 

We are not alone. We can count – tentatively – on our directors and our colleagues. For example on veteran colleagues. Tentatively. Also we can count on the transcendent: God, our Father. 

In order to set an example and to educate our students we have to improve and better our work and ourselves each and every day. All this is quite educative. 

I know that most of you are committed teachers and that is simply great. Have a nice week you all! / Photo from: driving-in-ireland-car-on-an-irish-road-at-beara ireland-now com

3400. Educating Our Students' Feelings


Obviously we teachers have to educate our students’ intelligence. And we may be working on it. Okay then, also we have to educate their feelings and sentiments, their affectivity. 

First premise: it is their parents who have firstly to educate those feelings of theirs. And we teachers help at that education. Our mission is subsidiary. We help their families. 

Can our intelligence govern our feelings and sentiments? It can, in some way. 

We can strive to have for example positive thoughts, positive resolutions to carry out our duties. And if we thus struggle to have positive and rational thoughts, in that way we can make positive and rational feelings arise inside us. 

If we try to have positive and rational thoughts, our feelings can go toward a positive and optimistic side. / Photo from: chess-smarter Examined existence

3399. How to Gain Fluency and Accuracy


Why can some people speak in a second or foreign language with such accuracy and fluency? 

If you want to have and possess such good things as accuracy and fluency, you should for example read massively in that L2. 

Because we can use and employ some of the words that we input and intake by means of for example reading massively. 

Reading what? Literature, non-fiction also is convenient, etc. Always those books should be in accordance to human dignity: we feed ourselves from what we read. 

What amount of words can I use? Fewer than the words I intake, definitely. 

The more words I intake through reading the more words I will be capable of using. Also we should consider that that reading books should take rather long in time. 

Summing up: the more I read, the more words I will be capable of using. Have a nice day! / Photo from: Boeing 747

3398. What a Peaceful Climax in Our Classroom!


So as I was telling you all, and in order to set a nice and serious classroom climax of serious work, we have to make our students think plus they should see we’re serious regarding our professional work. 

I can tell you I have some reputation of being serious, rather serious, and that helps with creating a nice and serious atmosphere of serious work in the classroom. 

And the other point was making our students think. Think of what? We could talk with them, with somewhat the frequency of TV ads or the like or less maybe, about being serious in the classroom. 

It is my work and it is their work the ones we’re implementing in the classroom. And that’s quite serious, you know? We can’t play with that. 

Let’s make them think. Because if we get our students think, they will likely become serious with their work. Also because the best classroom discipline is self-discipline: I set to work because I wish to do that, because it’s my work as a student. It is what is expected from me. And I want to learn! / Photo from: Wallpaper Cave. What a peaceful scenery!

3397. Managing the Classroom!



So I’m trying to post again. And I wanted to write about classroom management. 

Some tips: let’s try to make our students think and let’s show we want to implement seriousness at our common work in the classroom. 

I’m telling you soon something about these latter premises. 

It works with me, and it has worked along my career as a teacher. Not always but mostly. 

I think classroom management and discipline have to do with students thinking and with them to learn that I’m serious at my work, my professional work. They cannot play with that: working in the classroom is also their professional work now, and they are training for life as adults.

Trying to post again!

I'm having some problems at posting, but I hope to post again so soon!
