882. Your struggle now

One day teacher of English A said to teacher of English B, “The students of the summer course you’re going to teach must respect you.

You told me they’re about 9 to 11 years. Ok, this is a summer vacation course and they just are on their vacations, and the mode of the classes will be different from their regular winter classes in their schools. However, you could make them become aware that they must respect you and what you say to them, like for example instructions regarding behavior.

The students may be frisky, playful and jumpy, and you can try to make them feel calmer, but, as I said, respecting the teacher is a must-fulfilling from the kids.

What you teacher must not jump over is exacting and demanding and teaching good manners: while you're staying in class you have the responsibility of the management of the class, and they must respect you, and one another; they, later, in other activities of the course, apart from English, can play however they want or however the monitors think it’s ok, but now in the classes of English they have to stay rather calm and keep good manners.

Discipline here consists of good manners, more than trying madly to have them all sitting nice and being quiet all the time; I guess this latter thing is not possible. Also you can try all their energies should focus on carrying out the activities of the English classes.” / Photo from: saxonfencing co uk. fencers. fencing
