A Pe teacher asked a Maths teacher if he could have a couple of Maths text books.

Knowing full well why, the teacher asked anyway and the PE teacher explained that he had a couple of
kids misbehaving in PE and he was going to punish them by making them do Maths.

So he asked the PE teacher if he had a spare football as he had a couple of kids misbehaving in
Maths and he was minded to make them play football instead.

True story.

Sadly very believable. I've come across this lots with English also. In practical lessons, (Music,
Art, DT, PE etc etc) if a kid is naughty they lose the 'privilige' of the practical and have to do
'written' work. Similarly demoting writing to a punishment exercise. Not good practice imo.

"Learning is the greatest game in life and the most fun.

All children are born believing this and will continue to believe this until we convince them that
learning is very hard work and unpleasant

Some kids never really learn this lesson, and go through life believing that learning is fun and the
only game worth playing.

We have a name for such people. We call them geniuses."

Quotation from Dryden G & Vos J (1999) "The Learning Revolution", the Learning Web

It's interesting to note that the same kids who do not like writing the "punishment paragraph"
scramble to write loads for stories and articles. They do see a difference between the two - one is
the chore, the other the pleasure.

Reminds me of the suposedly ideal match of the sadist and the masochist. Masochist says please,
please beat me. The sadist says....No.
