Hello everyone. I am Jess for the past three years I have taught Biology to mostly freshman and sophomore. I just accepted a position at the technical school teaching that is associated with school. I will be teaching Anatomy and Physiology to students who wants to pursue a medical career. Most of the students will be juniors with a some seniors but I will also have some adult students. I know I am probably shooting in the dark here but I would like to ask if any teachers out there have been in a classroom with both teens and adults? I’ve been told that all the adult students understand all rules and guidelines for the classroom they must follow and they agree before accepted in the class. I guess I am nervous because this will be different from what i am used to. I did talk to a couple of the A@P teachers back in April but the way the school has been shut down I haven’t got to talk to them about things and how they run things in their class. I assume I will treat the adults as adults and the high school students as high school students. However, I did have one teacher tell me students are students. Adult students are better behaved of course but just like the younger students tardies, cell phone use and talking during work time are all common issues with both groups. One question I have do the younger students behave better with adults sitting in class with them? I am basically using the rules and consequences I have used the last three years mainly because the other A@P teachers use them as well. With the exception of the phone call to parents of course. I know this is scattered and you may not understand what I am looking for but any advice or anyone that has taught both at the same time I would like to talk with. Thanks for any response.
