Dos & Don'ts Project-Connecting Classrooms Online

We recently joined CCO Project-"Dos & Don'ts".Students are discussing and preparing ppts about the laws of their respective countries. They analyzed the laws prevalent in society and picked out the drawbacks. They reviewed the old customs and laws and suggested some slight changes. Nevertheless they emphasised on strictly following the rules that are beneficial to us. Discipline is the foremost thing for them. They searched for real incidents around them which highlighted the Dos & Don'ts of traditional society. And of course they found examples in their day to day life. Already their hostel life is full of many such "Dos & Don'ts".

While discussing the many of the Dos & Don'ts of our society the students were reminded of a poem by Robin Klein "Amanda" where a girl named Amanda is costantly nagged and has a lot of "Don'ts" in her life!






"Don't bite your nails Amanda!
Don't hunch your shoulders, Amanda!
Stop that slouching and sit up straight,
Amanda!

Did you finish your homework, Amanda?
Did you tidy your room, Amanda?
I thought I told you to clean your shoes,
Amanda!

Don't eat that chocolate, Amanda!
Remember your acne, Amanda!
Will you please look at me when I'm speaking to you.
Amanda!

Stop that sulking at once, Amanda!
You're always so moody, Amanda!
Anyone would think that I nagged at you,
Amanda!"
