Why we should not talk during class
A lot of times students disrespect the teacher in many ways. As high school students we are very stubborn and it takes a lot of warnings, maybe even a consequence, for us to be able to follow orders appropriately. One of the most common ways of a student disrespecting a teacher is talking during class, when they are not supposed to. Even when the teacher tells the students to stop speaking some of them will just completely ignore the teacher and not follow instructions, continuing their conversation.
Talking to a classmate while the teacher is trying to teach or trying to finish something important is not good and disrespectful for many reasons, not only to the teacher but also for the rest of the class. One of the main reasons that talking in class while we are not supposed to is disrespectful is because the teacher is in charge of the class and we are supposed to follow directions correctly. Teachers are there for them to help us but we need to cooperate and make it easier for the teacher to teach and for the student to learn.
If a teacher has to tell the class to be silent more than three times there is a problem because that means that the students are totally disrespecting the teacher by not listening to her, choosing to just ignore her. Students should never ignore a teacher’s order during class because we are at school to learn and the people who are going to help us learn are the teachers, therefore, whatever they do has a legitimate reason and we should always see it in a good way.
Another reason why it is disrespectful to talk during class is because there are some students in class that are trying to learn and by talking, we are interrupting their learning environments. When a teacher is trying to teach and a student interrupts the class talking to their friend the teacher has to stop the class to tell that student to stop talking; wasting class time that is valuable for some people.
Even if the teacher is not teaching we need to realize the fact that the class is supposed to be a learning environment, not a place you go to talk to your best friend. Some people might be trying to read during some free time they get while the teacher is busy and by talking, we just make it harder for them to concentrate and we disturb their peace. Finally, by talking in class you are harming your own learning by choosing to waste time instead of actually trying to learn, you are pretty much just harming yourself.
Talking during class affects the teacher, the people around you and yourself. Next time you feel the need to talk in class just remember that there are people in that class that are actually trying to learn new things and you will only be interrupting them. Have some respect for the teacher who is only there to help you accomplish your goals in life. In conclusion, you might think talking in class is okay because a lot of people do it but make sure you realize the people you are harming, including yourself.
