I did not realize how very perfect cats were at delivering Shakespeare’s insults until now.

When students in your class don’t seem to be making a real effort to learn, try to shift your point of view. Consider that students are continually making choices. Every day they ask themselves, “Is participation a good idea? Is this activity worth my effort? Should I bother?” Contrary to popular belief, students don’t owe their teachers a thing. Most are in school because the law requires them to be there, and their friends are there.

But you, as a teacher, chose your job. As a teacher, you receive monetary compensation and some degree of emotional or vocational fulfillment in exchange for making your best effort to transform students’ lives. Remember, to lay the foundation for sustained motivation and effort in your classroom, you have to build relationships, demonstrate passion, and get buy-in.

7 Things I Wish Parents Would Stop Teaching Their Children:

goddess-river:

  1. That nudity is inherently sexual
  2. That people should be judged for their personal decisions
  3. That yelling solves problems
  4. That they are too young to be talking about the things they’re already starting to ask questions about
  5. That age correlates to importance
  6. That interacting with someone of the opposite sex is inherently romantic
  7. That the default for someone is straight and cisgender
