Great work. Thank you for sharing. As soon as possible I am going to put into practise it.
Interesting, reminds me of the The Wolf is Coming story.
A very thoughtful article and this is a problem that every teachers have with kids that's getting in trouble often. Trust them or not to thrust..
Nice story. It is funny and simple. Good choice.
Thanks a lot for the story. It was very instructive, gives much food for thoughts, and promotes the students desire to reading. I'll, undoubtedly, use it in my teaching practice.
