Aunty or Teacher? - Episode 5 Of TLM With TP

This is perhaps a very common situation that most teachers have to go through—having a fellow teacher’s child in your classroom. A situation like this can sometimes upset the dynamics of a class. How should you as a teacher treat your colleague’s child so as not to seem biased in anyway? What should you do to allow the child to handle the situation rationally? This particular child should in no way be different than the rest of your students for you, but then with a lot of variables at play—your relationship with your colleague, your relationship with the child outside school, the rest of the class and their views, etc.—it can be a difficult problem to deal with. In this episode of Teaching and Learning Moments with Teacher Plus, Manaswini Sridhar, Education consultant and Advisor, talks about how you can best handle this situation.

Teaching and Learning Moments with Teacher Plus (TLM with TP) is a programme on education and various aspects of teaching and learning in and outside the classroom. This talk show is brought to you by Teacher Plus in collaboration with Bol Hyderabad 90.4 FM, the campus based community radio station at the University of Hyderabad.
