It’s between the genders

Just wonder why some boys and girls can hardly work together?

Students are arranged in pairs between different genders so that they would be ontask (read: less destructive) in the teaching and learning process.

I have encountered quite a number of such cases in my classroom. It especially happens when I conduct group activities with them. I have tried to advise them and it only works in a minute. And I have reminded them to be supportive, cooperative and all. But again, the same old habit happens.

When I was in the primary school, I used to quarrel and have a lot of conflicts with girls. Maybe the appropriate phrase to describe this situation is to have ‘a positive and health competition’. However, it was not between the students as a whole, but rather between the genders. We would even start to shout at each other if a person from different gender touches our tables or chairs. huhuhu

Students also have their groups of student at school, often between the same gender. If a boy is close to groups of girl, he might be seen as less masculine. What would usually happen is that the boys would do their stuff and the same goes to the girls. Remembering  all of these memories made me feel that I want to laugh out loud.

Perhaps, karma really happens. What you give, you’ll get back in the future. And that future is happening on my face now. I really need to do something to change my karma. huhuhu.. Anyone care to give me the first aid kit?

p/s: I didn’t face this problem when I was in the secondary school as all of us have matured a bit (read: we are in the all-boys school). huhuhu

BTW, can we classify our souls (roh) into genders?

    remember the day when i was so fed up with kids (observation), there was an incident when a girl and a boy fought with one another just because they wanted to head the group. Gosh, i was so mad to the point i wanted to slap them (but lucky i got the passion). So i told them, “both of you don’t have what it needs to become a leader; to be able to tolerate”.

    i believe gender fight among pupils is a mental illness. It is a murky excuse which should be understood by adults like us. It is a sign of unable to tolerate with someone from the opposite gender. i detest pupils who are so gender biased and always remind them there is no boys or girls territory in my classroom. Everyone are rewarded based on their capability to perform and to make me amused with their talent. I believe we need to treat them equally then they will learn to treat others like we want them to. Like an old saying says: guru kencing berdiri anak murid kencing berapi…
