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
