Dealing with difficult personalities

Students come in different ways and varieties, and I'm sure that as teachers, we all have had a difficult student at least once. Let's discuss about two of them: the Complainers and the Clams.

The Complainers, in my opinion, are those people who are difficult to please. No matter how much effort you put in planning your lessons, they will always think that the activities are boring and silly. In this case, I try to explain to those students that what may be silly or boring for them, it might be useful for others. And not all of us learn at the same pace. Thus, it's important to foster their tolerance.

On the other hand, there are the Clams. They are really shy and feel uncomfortable in activities in which they have to participate in some way. They try to avoid situations of conflict and risk-taking. One student of mine is even too shy to ask for clarification when he doesn't understand a task. So, I must walk around the classroom checking if everything is OK. At the beginning, I thought that he disliked me, but when I talked to other teachers, I found out that he behaves in the same way during all the lessons. So, I'm trying to make him participate a bit more: reading aloud or asking for his opinion on debates.
As you can see, we can't help working with difficult personalities, so the best we can do is be patient and give our best!

Resultado de imagen para images how to deal with difficult studentsHi people!!
How are you doing in this raining morning? 
Have you ever dealt with difficult students?
Have you ever felt frustrated because you 
couldn't find the way to manage them?
I think that most of us,as teacher,have ever faced complicated students.On the one hand, you can find students who are complaining all the time.Whatever activity that you propose it's boring or it isn't clear or they aren't just interesting at all. My humble suggestion is to find common ground with these students, for examples common interests,music, sports, TV programmes ,books,etc.
On the other hand you can find the kind of students who hate the school.They always say things like "I'm not doing this because I don't want or I hate doing it".Negative students can begin to make other students feel negatively about your class too and this is very dangerous.
 My modest advice in this situation is to

things they do to build their self-esteem.
Besides,you can also listen to them because
 many times they are experiencing some
 traumatic situation and that is the reason 
of their negativism.
I'd like you to share with me some suggestion
 if you have some.

  Reading experiences

Hi peeps!!How are you doing? This time I'm here to talk about reading experiences. All of us meet someone in life who loves reading books. This kind of guys who are always looking for new books and spend hours and hours reading just for pleasure.Wow that's fantastic!!Definitevely, I'm not one of them. However that doesn't mean that I haven't read any books. I've also had my humble reading experiences.My first book was "Mujercitas" when I was young. Then it came "Las puertas de Anubis"both of them in Spanish.

When I was teenager I enjoyed reading comics such as Batman and Darkness.

Later in the training college I continued reading. Many time I could enjoy doing it.Books like Harry Potter and To kill a mockingbird were my favourite. I've also read Matilda, Treasure Island, Animal Farm and I'm sure that I've forgotten to name some of them. 
if you love books📕,
read them
 you can watch a film📺.

I haven't read too many books outside my school life... The same happened during my years in the training college. The book which I enjoy reading was 'To kill a Mockingbird'. Thus, when a few years ago the second part of the story was released, I ran to the local library to read it. 

But this time, I read it in Spanish.  An interesting fact about this book is that the writer had written the second part before than 'To kill a Mockingbird', but for some reason it wasn't published until 2015. Spoiler! Scout comes back to her hometown and her relationship with Atticus has changed.

Another book which called my attention was 'Caballo de Fuego' written by the argentinian writer Florencia Bonelli. Even though it's a love story, I enjoyed it because I liked the writer's style. The story is about an argentinian doctor who falls in love with an arabic man who made his fortune thanks to wars.  The story is a trilogy and each book is set in three different cities: Paris, Congo and Gaza. 

Now, I'm reading 'The Great Gatsby' which I love ❤  Even though it's for the training college, I like the story because it has nice quotes...

I'm planning to read 'Propanga' by Edward Bernays. A colleague was reading it and it called my attention. Basically, this man explains his techniques to sell things to people, and to make them believe that they need them.

Hello people, how are you doing? This time I bring a poem by Jim Morrinson. Have you ever heard of him? Maybe you know him or not.Anyway,I tell you he was the singer of the Doors and also wrote many poems.He's one of the most iconic frontmen in rock music history. I love him . I hope you enjoy the poem. ;) Noelia

criminal metabolism of guilt forest
Rattlesnakes whistles castanets

Remove me from this hall of mirrors
This filthy glass

Are you her
Do you look like that
How could you be when
no one ever could

Poet of the call-girl storm

She left a note on the bedroom door.
“If I’m out, bring me to.”

I dropped by to see you
late last night
But you were out
like a light
Your head was on the floor
& rats played pool w/your eyes

Death is a good disguise
for late at night

Wrapping all games in its calm garden

But what happens
when the guests return
& all unmask
& you are asked
to leave
for want of a smile

I’ll still take you then
But I’m your friend.

If you don't like so much poetry ↑🔺, here you have a nice song "People are strange". Have a nice week!! Noelia
