About Japanese junior high schoolI'm going to talke about junior high school: students, teachers from my experience.
I have never done a practice teaching IN a junior high school, but I went to an elementary school and practiced teaching last year.
When I was a junior high school student, I became VERY shy and disliked to talk during a lesson time. I didn't know why, but I think now, I felt a kinds of emptiness then. We have to agree that the most important thing is a grade and there is the difference among individuals, especially in a study. A teacher has to face this problem and we also have to think about it.
I couldn't enjoy lessons because these were boring and I dislike teachers. A teacher should give students enjoyable lesson, for example, a teacher don't speak too much, students can speak freely and students can feel that this lesson is useful.
I think the important thing is how a teacher has students move, be active or have fan and so on... The lesson has no meaning if students can't learn topics because of a bore.
A goal should be placed in a lesson. Students can learn English with a clearly aim if they understand the meaning of the lesson.
I wrote a half, I'm going to write a continuation after. I put my dictionary in my home today, I can't continue without my dictionary(=. =;)
