Tim Hibsman (English) published an article titled “A Room Full of Surprises” in the April 2018 issue of Teacher Plus magazine. The article takes an anecdotal learning approach to show examples of how students interrupt teacher instructions. The conclusion of the article provides a practical Lessons Learned section to help the practicing teacher use new techniques in the classroom.

Supported by Azim Premji University, Bangalore, Teacher Plus is the magazine for the contemporary teacher. Created in 1989, Teacher Plus is a publication aimed primarily at the schoolteacher. It is a forum within which teachers can raise their concerns, discuss ideas, and share and update their knowledge. Teacher Plus discusses alternative ways of thinking and doing within the context of the Indian classroom, while recognizing the constraints that most teachers face, day to day. In addition, its aim is to foster a sense of community among teachers, of being a part of an important group of change agents.

Teacher Plus is published monthly from Hyderabad. It draws from a large pool of contributors from across India, persons with experience in varied aspects of education, from primary school teaching to tackling board exams to the place of art and craft in learning, to child development and classroom management. Each month brings the reader a mix of thought-provoking features and hands-on activities that can be adapted for use in most classrooms.

It is a magazine for the practicing teacher who wants to keep up with trends in education and find ways to energize her/his classroom with new ideas and approaches.
