Manuel, this post if for you. In our class yesterday morning I could´t help smiling when I saw you stretching your arm like crazy trying to attract my attention so that I would let you answer a question I had asked someone else in class. I remember I mentioned you had reminded me of something: this is it, this cartoon.
When you are a teacher, you realize no two classes are exactly the same and yesterday, in the class before yours, I had asked the students to take part, be active, speak in class...because most of the students in that group just sit there - and that´s exactly what they do: just sit. It´s so hard to make them actually speak and participate... And then I go to your class and some of the students there find it really hard to focus on whatever we are doing since their conversation is usually much more interesting than anything we may be doing in class, others seem to be in the clouds, a few of you actually follow the rhythm of the class and some -like you in this case- really want to prove they do... And all that diversity in just the first two hours in the morning...
