I think we teachers of English or other languages dedicate and devote a lot of time to low-achievers and this is ok but sometimes we dedicate rather little time to promote high-achievers, and these ones can get bored in classes where they can easily learn things, too easily.
We should devote more time to these latter students.
For instance, we could provide them with material and stuff for Cambridge examinations at high levels, First Certificate, Advanced, Proficiency.
Or for example we could ask school parents to take our high-achievers to their job posts, in medicine, architecture, the army, fine arts, law. This later initiative is successfully being practiced in some school of the south of Spain.
High-achievers attend the parents profession places and learn practical-for-life activities, with their teachers’ assistance. / Photo from: terrorismo-eta-la-audiencia-nacional-vuelve-a-aplazar-al-lunes-el-juicio-al-comando-vizcaya noticias terra es
