    My students can’t stop doing this even for one second. They’re driving us all crazy!

    Yeah, my P.E. teachers ruined it for me, too. It wasn’t until I was an exchange student in the U.S. for a year that I started to really like sports. Haven’t left it ever since and have even done competitive sports. Could’ve been a lot better at it starting earlier, though. Thx for nothing, coach Heiner!

    Tread lightly with the sarcasm at that age. Not all the kids get it yet. I’m a fan of irony (rather than sarcasm) in the classroom, but in my 6th grade I still put inverted commas in the air.

    Right. But then again I had a History teacher who’d give one section plus the questions from the book for homework each day and then spend all of the next lesson going over the answers. Every Friday we’d finish a chapter with a computerized MC-test. It was the most mind-numbing class ever and she never had to prepare, teach or mark a thing.

    Good for you, Elly! That’s the way to raise self-confident, autonomous kids! I was home by myself after school ever since first grade, both my parents working till 5 or 6 p.m. I’d also take the tram to go to dance class when I was 7. When my brother entered kindergarten, I’d occasionally pick him up there and then cook something for the both of us. I was 10 then.

    Well maybe if we paid our teachers a little better they could be better teachers instead of having to earn money teaching private lessons or during vacations. It’s the same world-over with few exceptions.

    I never got the sense of the amount of homework they assign in North America. I used to get 20 to 25 problems in Math per day and they were all exactly the same except for different numbers! What’s the sense in that?
    I am a teacher in 6th and 8th grade and I never give homework unless there’s a longer period without class (excursions, holidays…) with an exam coming up, or they really behaved horrendously and that’s why we didn’t finish. If we don’t finish the work in class it’s usually because I didn’t get my plan right or they encountered problems I didn’t foresee. My students go to school 7.40 a.m. to 4 p.m. and after that they have sports, private lessons and what else. They don’t need to be punished with homework on the side.
