How to teach twenty pupils and one with special needs.
The class in school where Iˋm in for a few hours a day is occupied with pupils at the age from 10 to 11. A few of them are still childish and a few are ahead in their age, but that is nature and she is perfect. (Is nature a she or a it?)
There once I watched a boy playing with a self-made fluffy rabbit whereas another boy was fascinated at looking a young girl in a school magazin. One third of the kids are pretty fast thinkers, they can follow the teacherˋs stuff easily. The other part is also clever but need a little more exercise. The boy Iˋm looking for has great difficulties to follow the lessons. In German grammar he also has to learn the causes: subject, predicate and objects and to name all the causes. To find the subjects and predicate in a sentence would be more then enough for him. From time to time I want to have a word with the teachers. Iˋve to explain them that the sessions are pretty difficult for him and we should set the level a bit lower. The main part of the teachers agree that it would be better for this child to join a special need school. Iˋm not sure if he would be better placed there. Do we not all benefit from this kind of pupil? Yes we sometimes disturb the lessions, because he has deficits in hearing perfectly. He wears deaf aids and when I speak it has to be in normal volume. He is so good at sports and at making things.
Note: If you want you could add your own opinion for this case here, or if thereˋre coming up some questions , let me know.
