Lesson 6: Sorting Out The Teen Brain
Mark Twain once said, “When a boy turns 13, seal him in a barrel and feed him through a knot hole. When he turns 16, plug up the hole.” Twain’s words reflect the feelings of many teachers who are scratching their heads over the behavior of teens in their classrooms who are frequently moody, abrasive, and seemingly lacking in impulse control.
Teachers graduate with knowledge that they can’t wait to share with a class of eager, aspiring students. Then, when they actually enter a classroom, they are confronted with behaviors that challenge the creation of the quality learning environment they envisioned. If a teacher is to be successful, there comes a time when he must combine knowledge with the art of teaching (pedagogy).
