  1. Anyway,for those in UK..What is your take with the shake up of the curriclum- teaching 'evolution' is compulsory now,its interesting in a country with such low literacy skills,one would have assumed this would have been a priority..but alas! we got to fight the religious pseudosciences.. [/QB] This is mainly true in primary school and Science in secondary.. I'm glad that I don't have to teach evolution as I would not be comfortable in teaching falsehood. wa'salaam
  2. I think AbuJ was looking for a more global input.[/QB] It would be nice if we can get back to the topic, just so that we share one anothers experiences...!! Wa'salaam
  3. Salaam all. Out of curiosity, as we very multi cultural and dotted around the world here on S/Online maybe we can share with one another where you were born and raised… I’ll start. I was born in a village near Burco and I came to the UK via Xamar and Moscow in the late 80’s. Whose next…. wa'salaam
  4. Salaam Guys... Great topic...I normally do a lot of reading on S/Online but contribute little to the forum perhaps that will change soon! Having been a teacher in inner city schools for a number of years I can write a book about the valuable experience that I have gained. Behaviour: Inner city schools are riddled with young children with behavioural and emotional difficulties. You can read all the books and strategies on behaviour management and go to all the training sessions and you will still struggle to control a class of 30 rowdy kids. I believe effective behaviour management ultimately comes down to experience and knowing your kids well, establishing a relationship which is based on mutual respect ( I’m the teacher and you are the student…I’m the boss and I’m in control). In my school we often get SAS, usually 3rd year undergraduates from India and they are always shocked and horrified with the behaviour of the kids but I suppose they will be when they compare it against their country, where the teacher is both the judge and the jury and they command so much respect. As for what I enjoy about teaching. I think not everybody can become a teacher, you have to have within certain qualities. Likewise, it’s fulfilling when I see students that I have taught getting top grades across the board and then go off top colleges and universities. As for the holidays it’s great, 13 weeks of the year, although apart from the summer holidays there is always something to do, nevertheless, it means that I’m off the same time as my kids and I get to spend some quality time with the family. Wa’salaam
