With the PSLE English starting first, we can feel our students’ anxiety. “We are very stressed!” our students confided. Stressed from self performance, parents’ expectations and peer pressure. It is indeed not easy for a 12 year old to undergo such an amount of stress and pressure. We try our best to help them manage their emotions and expectations.
For the last few lessons, we adapt our teaching delivery. We listen to what they suggest, if that helps in their learning. The boys suggested to discuss and do questions at the same time, which helps them to learn from each other. That sounded reasonable, and of course we agreed.
Happy learners, happy learning!
