Is anyone finding the whole emphasis and onus of society is changing in these times, in regards to teaching and learning online? I speak after an online lesson where the pupil was eating Monster Munch for breakfast, then spent a considerable amount of time distracted and brushing crumbs off of her chair. ( but does seem to have ADHD tendencies) Producing a piece of year 6 writing then turned into her looking up facts on Wiki and telling me what to type. Following the lesson ( in attempt to present a credible piece of writing to parents/give lesson feedback) I spend another hour, proofreading, editing and updating her work for her. In a 'normal class' you would probably build this up over a series of lessons maybe over a week, so perhaps it's my own fault for trying to complete a finished piece of work in one lesson. I mentioned this in the lesson feedback email to parent so it will be interesting to see what feedback I get. Some children, even the polite. well behaved, considerate ones I teach, have been presenting as lazy, half asleep, eating all sorts ( no not the liquorice kind) but all kinds of food whilst I'm teaching them online as if I should wear a box on my head to become a pseudo TV or as if I am some sort of entertaining live Utube video/cinema? Or conversely, so 'overscheduled' that " No I haven't been able to do your homework, as I've had x,y,z's homework to do this week - one child with an 8 minute timer/buzzer to have a break between lessons that spanned from about 8am till 6pm? Where is the personal responsibility? For one online group I teach online, to have records of worksheets completed etc, I end up downloading these from their school website, filling these in before the lesson, so I then have a completed copy of work to email to parents following each lesson, as any annotation on Zoom documents is erased. Therefore the children do work through subject matter with me and I check their understanding of this, but, they often don't have the worksheet in front of them or haven't had a go at set work - it just seems increasingly more that the onus is being put on the teacher rather than the pupil? I this just something I am beating myself over the head with trying to be concientious, maybe overconcientous, or what have others found? The 'entitlement attitude' seems to present like "Everything is up to the teacher, they will do it for me and if they don't it's their fault I'm not at the level I need to be/pass the exam I need to then we will blame them. More and more in the news and elsewhere too, communities' attitudes towards teachers/schools are turning this way, and of course the government encourages this. It's all too easy as a collective to dump everything on a group of professionals, but when was the last time you blamed a doctor because you weren't eating healthily or exercising?
