Even the most dedicated teacher faces difficulties. Despite possessing the disciplinary knowledge and preparing carefully, you may need ideas to manage a class of worried, uninterested or confused students. In such situations, take a step back and give it a bit of thought.
In addition, do not hesitate to share your concerns with someone who may help you out. Why not discuss problems with:
- Student class representatives.
- A colleague you trust (share points of view or observe each other’s teaching).
- A teaching advisor from CAPE.
- The Section Director or Deputy.
