The 2 teachers below are those who are more difficult to communicate with. These teachers had tried their best to teach us, but I think that they still have lots of improvement space.
1. Science teacher/ Form teacher
Although she is strict, but she also has a beautiful side of her face. But we couldn't feel her kindness for 8 months. But from September onwards, my classmates think that she has become much more better than last time, especially some naughty students who felt that her way of "Punishing" is actually more like laughing. Well, it makes them feel better of course. Since she had starting treating us so well, I could see that my class has become cleaner, and the arguing between teachers and students are lesser. I hope this teacher will treat us using Appreciation Education until December, to make us happire in class, and earn some benefits for herself.
2. BM teacher
She is a good and earnest teacher. But because of our attitude, she changed a bit. I suggested her by using Appreciation Education and I asked her to see this blog. She said it was very well-done and tried using it. Maybe her way of appreciation was wrong, so our attitude didn't change at all. But she can still face 48 noisy students at the same time teaching in the front. I can see that her patience is really fantastic, she can teach a whole 80 minutes in such a noisy surrounding. I admire at her patience, but I also feel dissappointed because she can't use Appreciation Education correctly, but she done so well she is our teacher for 9 months.
Although these teachers had difficulties, but they are still finding their way out, just hoping to teach us well. I admire them very much. We students should maximize their good faces and minimize their bad faces, but we did it the other way. Students should also give them encouragement in the heart to let them improve.

I'm Junior 2 this year, in class Junior 2 Xiao. Fortunately, some of the teachers in my class are teaching us with Appreciation Education. Here I will list out how they appreciate us.
Thefirst is our form teacher, Mrs Chang. Although she can be quite nagging and talkative, but she always praises those students who did well, and will correct those who did wrong. She usually will tell the whole class that we are all responsible children. Besides, she always trust the students, no matter it's true or not. She taught us to trust people, how to coorperate, how to maintain better discipline and cleanliness in class...... I think she is a good teacher. I wish that if she could talk lesser and faster, she would be perfect for us.
The 2nd teacher is our English teacher, Teacher Theresa Yao. On the first day of her lesson, she's as fierce as a tiger. We are all afraid of her. But starting from the 2nd day onwards, she became a different person, a friendly and appreciating one. When the class is greeting to her, she will always had her thumb up and praise us. We were shocked. I thought" maybe she had forgotten Appreciation Education yeasterday!"
During her lesson, she will always call upon some students to answer questions. No matter the answer is right or wrong or the student doesn't know to answer, she always says: Good. before she says the correct answer. Besides, she increases the way of the lesson to be interesting by having a competition among the students on the whiteboard. Whenever a student who is not happy because he lost, the teacher will always say out straight that we are all clever children and that he will try again next time. Sometimes she shares updated-news to the students and telling them jokes... The whole class feels relax and starting to like her. Even after saying goodbye one or two of them will shout: Love you, teacher. At the moment I saw sparkling teeth and eyes from her face. She is happy...
To me, I think that she is one of the most successful teacher in Junior 2 Xiao to treat us in Appreciation Education. Teacher,love you too.
As you can see, Appreciation Education can improve a class' discipline and cleanliness, to coorperate with others, make all students and teachers happy when learning. As a matter of fact, Appreciation Education is very important to all of us.I wish that the other teachers will learn how to appreciate students and their families.And I also wish that the students can write some appreciation words for teachers, so that they can regain courageness, and let the Appreciation Flower bloom!

Once upon a time, there lived a boy named Robert. One day he fell ill, so he had to take some medicine. After he finished drinking the medicine, the phone rang. He ran to the hall to pick up the call, but he left the medicine un-capped, leaving it on the table. After he finished talking to the phone, he saw his brother playing with the medicine, poured all over the floor. Robert's father scolded him, he said: " You empty-headed boy, how can you be so forgetful? I think your brain had become rubbish!"
This is one of the examples of Complaining Education. The father wanted Robert's brain to work, but he kept complaining that his brain is already useless.
The exam was approaching, Robert was doing his revision in his room. His mom came in and started to scold Robert for revising a easy subject for such long hours. She said to him: " I'll give you ten more minutes to revise. Then I'm going to ask you questions on this chapter. One question can't answer, I whip you one time." After ten minutes, his mom snatched the book from his hands and started to ask questions. But Robert can only answer 1 question out of 10, his mom scolded and whipped him with a broom. At last his mom couldn't control her anger and teared Robert's favourite book into pieces and threw it into the dustbin. She shouted at Robert: " This book is making you useless! Don't go to school anymore! You are only wasting my time and money! I'm very disappointed with you!" At that time, poor Robert was shaking with fear and started to sob. His mom then added: "Why are you crying? I'll cut your legs if you cry!" Robert stopped crying immediately, and his face was calm. But actually he felt like bursting into tears, how he hated his family, and how he wanted to commit suicide...
The reason that Robert couldn't study well was not about his book, but it's his family who kept complaining him, blamed him, scolded him... Complaining education is when parents don't even step one foot ahead to see what had really happened, but their children was being blamed.

Thank you for our class teachers who had been teaching us for 11 months this year. But I think some of you should learn how to appreciate yoursleves and your families. And of course, students too. This post is mainly for teachers, but it also helps in parents.
First let me list out the ways teachers treat/punish their students when they make mistakes:
1. Stand outside the classroom
2. Copy sentences 20 times+
4. Being beaten seriously
Sorry, maybe I said it too rough. But I must tell all teachers that: If you want your students to get good marks, or you want them to have a good attitude, SCOLDING & BEATING is NO USE. I know what teachers feel when their students are naughty. But in Appreciation Education, students are always gentle and soft.
Punishing students as if you are breaking their hearts. Will they respect you? Will they like you?Will they be a good student in your eyes? Will they set up a good relationship with you? I don't think so....
Appreciating students from the following ways:
1. In Studies
2. In Attitude
All teachers will have surely met students who are very weak in their behaviour. Whenever a student plays pranks in class or does anything bad, teachers should not directly scold them. This will only make them even naughtier. A teacher should console and advise him in a gentle way, not hurting his feelings. First a teacher should ask him(gently):" Why you are so unhappy today? Can you tell me what happened? I can help you." The student will then know that the teacher is caring about him, and he will tell the teacher what happened. Then the teacher should talk or explain to him and help him to overcome the problem. If the student does the same thing but much better next time, teachers should praise him in front of the class. The more the teacher praises and appreciates him, the better the student will be.
This includes Corruriculum, Helping and lots.... Teachers are so important to students because they have to give students happiness, then everyone in the school will also be happy. Appreciate Students, Teachers! :-)

过了一会儿，爸爸从客厅走到饭厅。正当我要对他说:" 谢谢”时，谁料到，他突然骂出几句:“ 你吃那么多干嘛？我还没吃呢？你看 ,你看，鸡肉就留那么少！你不觉得很过分吗?” 我那时的嘴顿 时闭起来了，心里觉得好象没必要感谢他，没那个心情说出来了。。。
A few days ago, while I was eating dinner. I thought of saying "Thanks" to Dad for cooking delicious meals for us so many years. So I waited for the opportunity to come.
It did came, when Dad was walking to the kitchen and passing by the dining room. I had not even said the letter "T" as he pointed out and started to complain: " Why are you eating so much? I haven't have my dinner yet! You count yourself how many chicken wings you had ate! Don't you think that you're too selfish?" After I heard this sentence, my mouth couldn't talk! In my heart, I don't think it's worth to thank him... Besides, I don't have the mood to thank him...
Sometimes when I want to help my parents, they will always scold or ask me to go away... I don't have the mood and courage to help them because of their bahaviour. I felt very disappointed, very depressed, it's just like the feeling that you want to care for them but you don't dare to... Which is equal to the feeling that you want to appreciate them but you don't dare to...
But I always think of my parents positively....

A long time ago, all of us grew up in the environment of Complaining Education. Appreciation Education is a new friend to us, some of us are eliminating it.
During learning how to appreciate, we will surely face some problems and difficulties. As we are being polluted by Complaining Education, if we want to clear it, we should have enough bravery, full determination and excellent knowledge.
1. Bravery- During detoxification process, we must have undefined wisdom and a lot of courage, because from time to time we will meet supporters of Complaining Education.
2. Determination- During detoxification process, we must have undefined determination and patience, because we will start complaining again repeatedly.
3. Knowledge & Wisdom- During detoxification process, we must be trained to have piercing eyes, this is done so that we will not be trapped by Complaining Education.
Everytime when children make mistakes, parents should always believe that their child are always the best.

One night, auntie brought me to the cinema. It's very late, around 9pm. When Dad called me that I could not watch the movie. I was nervous how to persuade my parents. Although how much I talked good things, I started to cry, they still did not let me go. I hate my parents very much at that time until I reached home, I thought of Appreciation Education, I whispered:" They do this because it's for my good. " At home, I was preparing to sleep when Mom came to my room. She said: "Don't you miss me? I miss you a lot so I didn't allow you to see the movie. You can go again next time, right?" I replied if I didn't miss her then I won't call her today. Then she gave me a big hug. I had the feeling of warmth and being loved. I wished her Good Night after that. I just wanted to tell her that:" Mummy, you're improving in your Appreciation education! Keep it up!"
Start appreciating your parents if you want them to appreciate you! :-)

Appreciation education educates children in the way when they start to walk and talk. At first, every parent has the key of appreciation. When children started to learn walking, from one time to another, they keep falling. At the same time parents keep encouraging and praising them. But unfortunately when children grow up, most of the parents lost the key of appreciation. Then, they started to scold them, punish them.... and these will hurt their feelings. After some time, they will be the same as their parents too.
Appreciation education enables and respects failure. In appreciation education, failure is happiness, everyone should enjoy failure. When one succeed, parents must appreciate them; when one failed, parents should appreciate them more. Whereas complaining education does not allow children to fail. When they fail, parents punish them. I can't have a proper answer, why parents don't let their children fail? "Failure is the mother of success."
How appriecation education educates children in the proper way? Appreciation education maximizes children shining points 10 times bigger, and minimizes weak points 10 times smaller. When children do well, parents encourage them; when children didn't do well, parents encourage them more. When children are wrong, parents explain to them gently and thoroughly. They still believe that their children are the best. Appreciation education respects children's behaviour. Appreciation education solves root problems. Parents do not treat their children badly because they did not do well. They keep encouraging them to do well next time. Only this way will let children know that parents love them a lot.
Appreciation education is not only a way to educate people around the globe, its also increases people's harmony and relationship between each other. Appreciation education can not only be used between teachers and students, it is also suitable for couples, brothers and sisters, friends and more.... remember:
