The Lesson from Hell

  • Catherine Vallence

Abstract

As a student teacher on my second professional placement, I was reasonably confident with my teaching ability and was generally unfazed by what lay ahead in the last period of a particularly warm and windy Friday afternoon. Perhaps I was also lulled into a false sense of security because the last time I taught this group of 25 Year 8 students on Wednesday morning, they were absolute angels who diligently responded to my every instruction.
