7 Things A Teacher Must Not Do In The Classroom[ Pic] by thesilentman(m): 4:34pm On Oct 16
For an effective classroom control,these are amongst others,7 things you must not do in the classroom,specifically during lessons:
1.Never chew or eat anything.
why?Teachers are role models.If your pupils observe you doing that they will also do it and it will be difficult for you to stop them.
2.Never whistle or sing during lesson except it is a music lesson.
3.Never block the white board with your body;don't turn your back to the pupils as you are writing.Try stay on one side of the board.
4.Never speak vernacular except it is a vernacular class.Else you will not be able to stop them when they start speaking theirs.
5.Never be too jovial or be carried away during lesson: put succintly;focus on the lesson.
6.No matter how good you are,always have a lesson plan on your table.why? The pupils are very observant and will not take you serious if you begin your lesson in an hapharzard manner.
7.Never make advances towards your student,no matter how mature they might look or be.
That's my observation.If You have yours drop it.

Teachers shouldn't tell their life stories to their students/pupils either good ones or bad. Do not tell them your past either to teach them morals or whatever. it's bad

I've passed through teachers that have done at least one of those before.

Is it that madam that eats groundnuts off her table in primary School?

Sir Chidi the dancing and singing teacher

"You're blocking the board sir"
"should I become transparent?" - sir Clement

That year I ended up in Akwa Ibom and the English language teacher wouldn't stop speaking Ibibio. I ended up submitting my English language exam paper in the wrong class - of course, that's a straight f9

Mr Ekpo that year, you'll laugh till you forget you're in class - ss1

Sir Papa, so old that he's forgotten he's taught us a, s, d, f, left ;, l, k, j, right. Of course I had 100/100 that term in Typewriting and yet couldn't type beyond ASDF ;LKJ

"See me in my office" I can't count those ones

Mr Kingsize nko? He tells stories of how he liked everything king-sized during his youth days. He likes king-sized girls so the king-sized girls in class have automatic A. You guessed right! He's the Ibibio speaking teacher from SS1.

I can't forget how my physics teacher pronounces Newton as Newtone.

Me: Uncle that's not the right way to pronounce 'Newton'
Uncle: Come and collect chalk, you continue with the lesson.


The guy made me loose interest in Physics till date. After 7years I left the school...

He wooed almost all the females in my class then.


300 years for you wherever you are uncle

Just change number 4... while serving in Bayelsa state some years back during NYSC.. the kids finds it difficult to comprehend any kind of English except broken English.. I remembered one of the cop members struggling to use broken to make them understand geography

Ofcourse,you are right in a way-the essence of language is for communication and it's basically useless if you can't communicate with your audience.yet i believe it has to do with foundation.

One time my data processing teacher was dictating and I happened to tell him to come again. He looked at him and said that English is wrong that It should be "teacher pls kindly repeat your last sentence" I blurted out but teacher "come again" is an idiomatic expression. That day I was given a punishment.
Teachers should acknowledge and learn from students too.

Perhaps you are guilty for a good reason.

If the learners see you as being unrealistic especially when you present a life that seems a far cry from where they are coming from, they tend to just listen to you without taking you seriously.

But when you connect to them and they can associate with how better they can become, you have taught real life lessons there.

Of course there are personal information that must not be shared. It doesn't make sharing others for a great cause wrong.
Re: 7 Things A Teacher Must Not Do In The Classroom[ Pic] by Theknowledge(m): 6:37am On Oct 17
This is a beautiful write up!
But we also have to put into recognition the personality of some teachers. I have really met some inspiring ones, Dr Kingsley Ubaoji in Nnamdi Azikiwe University that man can inspire you for days.

Actually,the thing is we both get carried away as a result the behavioural objectives of the lesson might not be fully achieved at the end of the day.

Yeah,it should even be on the front page cos all the ideas are mine-from P.E. By the way,am a reading specialist.I employ the phonological approach(a combo of phonics and phonemic awareness) to enhance pupils' reading skills.Thanks!

A lesson plan is just what it is; A lesson plan.

It's not like you're lecturing a set of pre-programmed robots. grin
Even the students' grasp and mood determines what the lesson plan becomes at the end of the day.
Just saying, how you teach is and must be primarily learner-oriented.

Wrong.

Your students learn quickly from your personal experiences.

I learnt from my teachers on how they were able to make some career life changing decisions

For me, I don't quite agree with ur opinion on this. I have been teaching for years and I use different tactics and formation. I know the kind of students I tell things pertaining to me. There are some students that learn through your lifestyles and they tend to pattern their lives according to yours. I teach abroad and the pattern of teaching is quite different from Nigeria. They are not interested in stories coz it will bore them but few of them loves story also. I have raised mentee spiritually, emotionally, Educationally and otherwise just with the stories of my life.

By vernacular, you mean your mother tongue, right? Please encourage the speaking of vernacular alongside English.

My thoughts exactly. My students are quite free with me. Free enough to share "personal" issues making it easier for me to guide them. And I think it's because I have made them to understand that I am not perfect. I have made mistakes that I could have avoided and after sharing with them, they'll be very foolish to repeat the same things. There has to be limits though.

I believe you are talking from experience and i can identify with you.Education is a dynamic discipline hence we teachers are likely to have variant observations.Thanks!
