I haven't written on theTES forum for some time, but my experience today has prompted a"Last straw" thought process. I supply teach of choice as I am also a professional artist and need time to devote to my other career. I have been teaching full and part time for thiry five years, so not without experience. During that time I have watched standards in pupil's behaviour and respect deteriorate to what seems now, an all time low. Today first thing,I was pitched into a 100 minute year 10 drama lesson in a rough school. Needless to say most of the student's behaviour was off the wall (End of term etc). Imagine how I felt to have to listen to them rehearsing Mark Wheellers "Too much Punch and Judy", which is full of expletives and sexual inuendo. I am not a prude and realise that this play is on the Btec curriculum but why in heaven's sake is it??? How can we hope to raise standards in school when we enshrine and legitamise the "F" word and encourage the students to read such language out loud. The irony and subtetly in the play is largely lost on low ability students. I felt so uncomfortable with the bad behaviour; student verbal abuse; the lesson content and the lack of management support that I have vowed never to darken the doors of that establishment again. No amount of money is worth putting yourself through that! Does anyone have any thoughts on the appropriacy of this play for low ability young people?
