(Please note the class are acting in this film and they are usually wonderful!)

Watch this scene from the classroom and comment below on the following questions.

Do you think this standard of behaviour is typical for a class of teenagers? Do you think younger learners would be quite different?

What did you notice the pupils doing that may have prevented them from learning? What incidents and behaviours do you think needed to be addressed?

How did Skeena respond to those incidents? Do you think she did it in the right way? How might you have responded differently?
