Details about Dealing With Difficulties by Luke Prodromou
Dealing With Difficulties by Luke Prodromou PDF free download – The origins of this book, for me, can be traced back to one of the first classes I ever taught, in 1973, when my only qualification to teach English was that I had a degree in English literature and a passion for Shakespeare. I soon realised that Hamlet was not much use to me when teaching the verb ‘to be’ to truculent teenagers. The Prince of Denmark had, moreover, little to say about discipline problems in large mixed-level classes, overcrowded with adolescents and their unruly hormones. Some of them, male and female, simply refused to pay me any attention. Indeed, they actually seemed to get pleasure out of ignoring me and chatting happily amongst themselves. I felt excluded by their laughter and the more I tried to control them, the louder my voice got and the deeper I sank into the swamp of indiscipline.
