What differentiate the good and less good students in schools?

Same goes for teachers?

The toughest skill you may ever master in life is: Train your mind to focus for 55 minutes to the subject matter in class. Have control over your mind Not to wander away.

This is valid for both students and teachers.

Ideas extracted from “Chagrins d’ecole, by  Daniel Pennac)

When a teacher enters a classroom, he must be totally ready and focus to teach for 55 minutes. He must demonstrate that he is present, physically and mentally, look at the individual students and make sure they notice that the teacher is focused and want them to do the same.

La vitesse d’incarnation d’un sujet a l’autre, la capacite de changer de peau d’une classe a l’autre (un chameleon) et de se concentrer pleinement au sujet enseigné.

Une classe ne se dirige pas comme un regiment en marche et au pas.

Une classe doit etre conduite comme un orchestre: chaque eleve joue son instrument et travaille la meme symphonie.  Ce concentrer pendant 55 minutes au sujet enseigne.

Ce qui compte c’est savoir comment faire les eleves progresser au bon moment et avec harmonie.

Ne jamais parler plus fort que l’eleve.

Ne jamais faire croire aux eleves que les premiers violents dans l’orchestre sont les seules que comptent au monde

Je ne peut me resoudre a negliger les appels (les noms des eleves), surtout le matin. Le son que fait votre nom a des vibrations de diapason.

Better, welcome your students as they enter the classroom (as in Protestant churches?) and imitate their responses, particularly the variations on “Present”.

Other teachers demand that the students wait in ordered line and in silence before the teacher opens the door of the classroom: Acquerir un peu de politesse  n’a jamais fait mal a personne.

In the afternoon, let the exhausted students listen for a couple of minutes to the noise outside and compare it to the noise inside the classroom, and proceed to speak at a lower volume.
