    I'm a high school teacher in Africa and I work with extremely difficult kids (mostly teenagers from the local slums), so yeah, it's a tough job.

    I teach economy, tourism and documentation and I'm always looking for activities to keep those kids motivated and busy.

    Here's what I tried this year:

    - Ride on the local ho ho bus

    - Scavenger hunt at the local shopping centre

    - Scavenger hunt at the local book fair

    - Marketing enquiries at school

    - Lots of videos (incl. a 50 min. clip of Avatar that they loved!), real materials (newspapers, tourist guides), the iPad

    These were all great but I need more. I was thinking about t-shirt designing but I'm not sure how to fit that into my classes.

    Any other tips?

    Thanks in advance, guys!

    Hi Flavo...we have a few members here that are teachers. I am sure if they see this thread, they can give some nice advice on activities which they have done for their own students.
