Hey everyone was just looking for some advice. I'm a pgce student on my first placement and my university tutor is coming to observe me. Last time went really well- I had a lovely year 7 class. This time I am teaching my year ten class filled with some of the worst students in school. Their current teacher is really laid back and lets bad language and behaviour slide. I'm really not sure what to do-I have only taught them for a few lessons as it is. I have a feeling they will see I am being observed and bring me down intentionally. If I follow school sanctions it would most likely result in them kicking off and I'm not sure I could control the situation. The teacher has offered to take some students out of the lesson but I feel that would be really obvious to the other students why they aren't there. Does anyone have any suggestions? Sorry for rambling on loads!
