Came across this interesting post on Freshly pressed. I always felt English was difficult to teach. Languages in general lah. So I always wonder how all those teachers who made a difference in my life were mostly language teachers. (I’ve met my fair share of other awesome teachers for other subjects too though)
I liked this part:
I ask them to write stories about unicorns and rainbows — they invent a maniacal unicorn on a stabbing spree across the rainbow highway.
It happens. I think it’s the influence of cartoons. I mean even your sugar spice and everything nice can kick the ass of a green monkey with a half-wrapped brain. There’s so much more I have to learn about teaching…among other things in life.
