In University we were instructed not to smile until Easter. That way our students would never feel close enough to us to treat us like a friend. It is this kind of rubbish that infiltrates many teacher training lecture rooms.

The best way to manage student behaviour is for them to WANT to behave for you. They must want to gain your approval and respect. The only way to achieve this is to believe in them, set fair expectations for them and be prepared to share a laugh at times.

That is why an assignment calling for students to write one sentence about a family member, and draw a picture of it, was always going to be a bit risky. It is no wonder that one student submitted this:
