Fear - We are referring to fear of the material, of the teacher, of fellow students. Students express it in various ways; it is up to the teacherto read the signs. A climate of fear can be created - fear of being struck; fear of being embarrassed; fear of being excluded. Our responses are simple:children should never be hit - under any circumstances.

Flight - The students you do not remember, or the ones who cower in fear are the ones that suffer the most in social situations. They know how tohide or leave difficult situations. They are the ones who take it all out on themselves and who are impossible to arouse to learn if they are ignored. Theeffect of creating a welcoming learning atmosphere for all students, regardless of background, cannot be overestimated.

Fight - Disruptive students intimidate their teachers. They are often attacked themselves, either at home in their community, and this isoften all that they know. They withdraw their effort as a way of getting back or taking control. Often, the reaction of the teacher - if it is anger andpunishment - makes the situation worse.

Common behaviors and what you can do


Students who are bored will frequently look around the room. The source of their boredom is that the work is too easy or too hard, or itlacks relevance. To help the situation, position yourself where you can see most students. Learn how and why this is taking place; re-envision (or,"revise") the assignment.


For students who are frustrated, often the work is too difficult and others can do it easily. They usually are silent and make nocontribution. One thing you can do to help the situation is to move about thework area; create groups of students with different abilities; give praise or support; ask questions you believe struggling students are afraid toask.

Low Self Esteem

The origin of low self-esteem is many past failures. You'll notice students shut down. To help, ask good questions; supportindividual students; and spend extra time with students.

Neuro-linguistic programming

Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) studies the structure of how humans think and experience the world. Obviously, the structure of something so subjective does not lend itself toprecise, statistical formulae but instead leads to models of how these things work. From these models, techniques for quickly and effectivelychanging thoughts, behaviors, and beliefs that limit you have been developed.

Neuro-Linguistics : This article looks at the visual (sight), auditory (hearing), and kinesthetic (sensation and movement) features oflearning.

Neuro-Linguistic Programming: Choosing the Right Words : This article provides tools on how to use neuro-linguistic programming inthe service of effective classroom management.

Successful practices

Successful teachers in classroom management exhibit the following:

  • Create an inclusive classroom in order to prevent unnecessary conflict and reduce physical and emotional violence.
  • Engage in hands-on, experiential activities focused on prevention and intervention.
  • Re-commit to the process and joy of stimulating young minds and building positive long-term relationships with learners.
  • Discover strategies to "create a space for listening" to increase students' sense of belonging and connection.
  • Help students re-evaluate their behaviors in relation to their own goals for creating inclusive classroom communities.
  • Understand the importance of conveying "high expectations."
  • Develop skills for "welcoming" and sending "positive invitations."
  • Develop a model discipline plan appropriate for the age of the students and in sync with educational philosophy.
  • Develop strategies for implementing the model discipline plan.
  • Develop appropriate rules, procedures, and routines for the classroom.

what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
Devang Reply
are you nano engineer ?
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.

Abhijith Reply
Mostly, they use nano carbon for electronics and for materials to be strengthened.
is Bucky paper clear?
so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
Do you know which machine is used to that process?

good afternoon madam
what is system testing
what is the application of nanotechnology?
In this morden time nanotechnology used in many field . 1-Electronics-manufacturad IC ,RAM,MRAM,solar panel etc 2-Helth and Medical-Nanomedicine,Drug Dilivery for cancer treatment etc 3- Atomobile -MEMS, Coating on car etc. and may other field for details you can check at Google
anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
after 100 year this will be not nanotechnology maybe this technology name will be change . maybe aftet 100 year . we work on electron lable practically about its properties and behaviour by the different instruments
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world
how hard could it be to apply nanotechnology against viral infections such HIV or Ebola?
silver nanoparticles could handle the job?
not now but maybe in future only AgNP maybe any other nanomaterials
I'm interested in Nanotube
this technology will not going on for the long time , so I'm thinking about femtotechnology 10^-15
