I wouldnt worry Keystone. I am in 3rd year of my PE degree. the placement is the most enjoyable and rewarding part of the course. none of this by the book crap. You will quickly learn that nothing happens by the book (which is taught in class). In Vic, for placement you are always supervised by a teacher. If things become challenging try and work your way through. Don't go in with the attitude that you aren't a teacher. You are. You are the classes teacher for that lesson and for that block. If you happen to have them a few times building up a teacher/student relationship from the get go is the way to go about it. Clearly set out your expectations and find out from the teachers/school what their discipline policy is. When students step out of line, refer them to the school discpline policy and act accordingly. My suggestion, in your first class if someone is acting up jump all over it. shut it down and discpline them. they will listen. (if not your supervising teacher will come down on them like a brick wall) and then your students will understand that they can't get away with anything. it will make everything seem like a breeze from there onwards. Good luck. anything else you need answering I'm around to answer some questions from my experience!
