I said on the previous post that there should be a nice and quiet working atmosphere in the classroom, right? A serene one.
Silence by the teacher may make his students behave themselves and get silent, because at the same time he is staring and gazing at his students, silently and seriously.
They may get silent and attentive because silence is serious and imposes a nice behavior. It’s kind of a trick to keep them focused on some activity from their textbooks or from the teacher, who is the main activity resource for learning and acquiring English!
On post # 259 you can find a list of more than 100 games and activities. It’s up to you. You can type that number in the search box. / Photo from: Happy-female-teacher-assisting www ecdl org
