• Encourage teenagers to have opinions and to think critically and questioningly about what they are learning.

• Use the students’ own knowledge and experience as much as possible.

• Treat the students like adults but remember they are still children.

• Encourage the students to take responsibility for their own learning.

• Be super-organised! Teenagers like to know what they are doing and why.

• Be consistent when there are discipline problems. Criticise the behaviour, not the student.
