The exams over and now is the time for the teachers to mug and mull over the answers given .
Sometimes you have a good time correcting and scoring the answer scripts but there were times when you feel like knocking your head against the wall.
OMG ……What have the children learned?
or sadistically……. What have I taught them all these while?
I squirmed when I saw the questions set for year one.Kemon ….ala ala Jambu ML …. do you expect year 1 students in the first half of the year able to string sentences even with given words.And memo the parts of the body down to the thigh and toe.
Do you expect students of year 1 to be able to unscramble the spelling of the days when in their syllabus its the sound of aeiou that they are learning.
Well they may know how to spell mop,pot,tin pin.
And I would not expect the 29 students even to pass.
Teaching them for a month and 5 units to cover with days of holidays in between ,what do you expect?
I dont have a magic wand to say :
Class should be full of fun
With songs,chants and puns
But with lots of tests and exams
PBS,Mid Year and what not
Could make Ali feels ….it rots.
Maybe I’m not a good teacher,after all.
The score would be tabulated and wired to JPN high and tall.
Keeping my fingers crossed if any officer would come a calling.
Why aaaa ya school got lots of failin'.
What have ya been teachin'
