I'm currently working with a level 2 group (all girls). I have never taught a group like it. It's very school-ish behaviour. There is constantly a problem between one or more of them, they back chat and set one lecturer off against another. They have a very difficult time engaging in any meaningful discussion and they struggle to record anything meaningful without excessive supervision or prompting. I could go on and on but I want to turn it around. All of the lecturers currently detest teaching them. Individually they are good kids but together.... We've only known them 10 weeks and we are all exhausted! Has anyone had any experience of such a group and can give me some ideas to try and rectify this.
