935. Like a band of music


One day teacher of English B said to teacher of English A, “Someone at home last night was listening to a CD of Los chicos del coro (the music of Les choristes movie). All of the kids were singing as a single voice, which is one of the most important things in a choir – maybe the main one. I carried on by listening.

And then I thought of the movie as well.

You can make a choir from a group of kids. It has something to do with a class. In a class YOU are the conductor, and the main thing, so, the goal, is each and every student do the right thing at the right moment.

A real example: think of a teacher who achieves every student is plunged into a dictation.

With the weeks passing, you, a novice teacher, I hope you’ll achieve your students do what is scheduled and planned for that time. Be patient. You’ll get it, and your students will learn and acquire the language, one step after another.” / Photo from: bestsingletravel com. St Patrick’s Day Parade Band in a memorial of Eire’s Patron
