I don't know if I'm dismissing it as much as saying I don't really want it to be true or want to know...but then as it isn't really...it's all good.Originally Posted by Jack Straw
Not saying they haven't.Many people have found the framework a valuable way to understand diferences in behaviors.
They used to want to talk to me about Michael Owen and football teams...also if I had any Limp Bizkit albums they could borrow.For example, at the end of a class what happens when you ask, are there any questions?
Generally though don't you say to them 'what do I want you to do?' and have them come back at you?
As per above...footy and music.Let me guess, dead silence.
For sure as per above...you put the emphasis on them to tell you what you want them to do. Saying 'do you understand?' is a waste of time as generally they'll just say they do even when they don't.Thais score higher on acceptance of power distance than farangs and are unlikely to question a "superior" such as a teacher. If a teacher understands this, they would know that just because students did not ask questions does not mean they understood the lesson, and a teacher could ask questions to verify the understanding of the students.
Common sense isn't really useless mate to be fair!Stupid stuff useless like that. Obviously of no use to teachers and educators in a foreign country.
Riddle me this brother can you handle it
Your style to my style you can't hold a candle to it

"Common sense isn't really useless mate to be fair!"
Did I ever indicate otherwise?
It is not an either or choice
One can be educated and try to improve one's knowledge and skills and still have common sense.
Having access to the thoughts of those who have spent their lives studying issues is not a bad thing, in my opinion.
Something that's always irked me a little (but never enough) Jack, is that I'm not entirely stupid but I continue to do stupid things.
How can that be accounted for? (please include graphs)
Or would you like to swing on a star?
Yeah you said this mate:Originally Posted by Jack Straw

Yeah and one can educate one's self. Although some of the most cleverest people I've met did have some serious issues with common sense...and also knowing when you are having a laugh with them. I had a well clever mate who had to buy 'how to win friends and make people well like you' by Dale Winton Carnegie.....to me it's common sense what's in it (I read it) to him it was like a Godsend!One can be educated and try to improve one's knowledge and skills and still have common sense.
I don't think I said it was...I'm just not personally a fan of stuff like that is all.Having access to the thoughts of those who have spent their lives studying issues is not a bad thing, in my opinion.
I'm actually a big pie chart fan (hint hint!.

Matty...I just made a post about flow charts in the Staffroom...like coincidence or what?
I think they're wank as well to be honest!!! Quite nice colours though.
"Something that's always irked me a little (but never enough) Jack, is that I'm not entirely stupid but I continue to do stupid things.

Maybe you should revisit your first assumption, the one that you are not entirely stupid. If you continue to do stupid things, chances are you ain't the sharpest crayon in the box. Sorry no graphs Just common sense
Stupid people do stupid things
Smart people don't do stupid things (well, not as often any way)
id love a stalker would certainly take my mind off of thinking about how i can adapt to this fucking awful paradiseOriginally Posted by kenkannif
funny that you wrote that. as i write this, kids are coming in and turning in their projects- part of which is the mindmap (brainstorm) exercises. 100 bubbles are required (along with 3 drafts of 2 essays and 2 peer edits ). some groups have huge pieces of paper with 250+ bubbles. a sight to see- they make sigma look like a lemonade stand organizational flow chartOriginally Posted by Matthew
Boys, meet our new play thing.

Really?Originally Posted by Jack Straw
Well that settles that then.
Thanks for the intelligent response Jack.
PS do crayons really have to be sharp?
Is it okay to post or should I really draw some kind of flow chart:
If I say this...blah blah blah...and then like little branches with all the options and that on it???
Depends what you class as smart mate......like I said some of the cleverest (academically) people I've known....no idea how to act in the 'real' world!!!
Actually I've got your number (I think) so will just randomly call you up and randomly call you namesOriginally Posted by stfranalum
