From kidergarten, elementary, junior high school, scenior high school, and university, I meet many teachers; therefore, I can classify them according to the way they teach students as gases like CO2, O2, CO. There is no doubt that inhaling to much CO2 will make people sleepy. Hence, teachers like CO2 means they simply teach students by speaking words on books; shortly, students will have a dream. This sort of teacher speak word after another on the textbook, and they even donít emphasize where the point is. Originally, students will pay attention to them, but after a while, they will feel bored, sleepy and then fall asleep. The kind of teachers donít mind studentsí feeling of teaching way. They solely think they have done the well job of teaching, thinking students arenít diligent. In contrast, O2 is a great gas that will make people feel energetic. Teachers of this kind are professional, and conscientious. They will teach the content of books in their unique way. They are familiar with the content in the books. As a result, they will teach vividly and keep students awake in whole class. Moreover, they will teach some principles about life and some experience they have learned. Students attend in this class will benefit a lot. The other type of teachers are like CO. CO is a poisonous gas that will make people die. Teachers of this sort refer to that they are unfamiliar with the content in the book. They donít prepare for the class, and they even teach wrong things.If students donít search information for themselves, they will take wrong contents real. It is a terrible learning way.

To carry the metaphor...

NO (laughing gas) - teachers who are funny

Gas Laws demos are so fun and easy to do. This is where it all began for me back in my second year of teaching when I started using demos in my chemistry classes. I learned how to crush a can using a Bunsen burner and a bucket of ice; from that moment on I was hooked. Ever since that second year of teaching, I like to do ‚ÄúGas Laws Demo Day‚ÄĚ to showcase several ways to see the relationships between temperature, pressure, and volume. It just so happens, by my good luck, that my new boss, Mr. Richards, decided to visit my class on Gas Laws Demo Day.
