“Ah? Why did they suddenly start fighting?”
“The students of the Central Province Academy are so valiant. They actually took the initiative to attack Sky Orchid!”
“Tyrannical, simply too tyrannical!”
The other student groups were dumbfounded when they saw this scene.
From their point of view, after the Central Province Academy obtained the White Tiger Guard, they should have retreated immediately. If not, Sky Orchid would be tempted to steal it from them. However, who would have expected that the Central Province Academy didn’t care about Sky Orchid at all?
Was this the demeanor of a champion?
The eyes of a few teachers brightened. They might be able to pick up some scraps!
Li Ziqi’s lips twitched. Zhang Yanzong simply liked to scheme and play tricks. Given his strength, he could clearly defeat Wang Meng with a single slash. Yet, he had chosen to slice off one of Wang Meng’s arms.
He was doing this to make Wang Meng scream in agony, breaking the morale of the opposing students.
Honestly speaking, compared to death, the scream of agony by someone familiar would cause people to feel even more pressure and terror.
“Yanzong is always smart when it comes to pulling such minor tricks!”
Gu Xiuxun sighed.
How would she evaluate Zhang Yanzong? His standards in all aspects were pretty high, but that was it. He wasn’t outstandingly good in any area.
Simply speaking, it meant that his heart wasn’t pure enough.
For example for Xuanyuan Po. Once he entered his combat state, he would only think about defeating his opponent. He wouldn’t care about other stuff.
It was precisely this type of pureness of heart that allowed Xuanyuan Po to display overwhelming combat strength, perfectly stunning the students of Sky Orchid.
“You can’t say it like that. Yanzong isn’t Xuanyuan Po. You cannot let every student grow according to the plan you one-sidedly envision. Instead, you should let them grow by setting up training plans according to their habits and proficiencies.”
Sun Mo rebutted.
During combat, Xuanyuan Po had shocking talent. However, it couldn’t be said that his comprehensive strength and future accomplishments would surely surpass Zhang Yanzong’s.
Indeed, although the Nine Provinces were places where martial strength reigned supreme. There were still times where some problems that couldn’t be solved by martial strength would occur.
“I understand your meaning!”
Gu Xiuxun bitterly smiled. It might be the case, but who wouldn’t want a genius of the martial dao like Xuanyuan Po as their student?
Sun Mo no longer spoke anything regarding this topic.
How a teacher taught their students was a private matter. Sun Mo’s experiences might not be suitable for others.
However, there was one point he could be sure of. When it came to teaching in line with the student’s ability, it depended on the teacher’s capabilities.
As a teacher, Sun Mo was the most suitable for exam-oriented education. However, there might not be enough time to design so many learning plans.
In the No. 2 High School, he was teaching three classes with fifty students in each class. With the lesson preparations, marking of homework, etc, he would be very busy from morning until night. How would he have the time to design a comprehensive learning plan for each student?
Hence, he could only choose the method that could allow the majority of students to get better grades.
There was no need for him to worry about the good students as they would take the initiative to learn. You could simply give them tougher questions and they would find out themselves how to do it.
However, for the majority of the time, the teacher-in-charge would provide them with the answers. After all, the number of students passing would affect their ‘key performance index’.
The only troublesome things were the weaker students. They weren’t able to keep up with the learning pace and would slowly slip into the state of hating to study. In the end, they would lose all interest in learning.
Some would be enlightened in time. They suffered for a bit and would eventually catch up, but the majority of weaker students would choose to give up.
Sun Mo would feel his heart aching when he looked at them, but there was nothing he could do. He didn’t have 48 hours in a day.
The population of China was simply too large, and what the schools cared about was the rate of passing in that year. Hence, teaching in line with the individual student’s ability was merely pleasant sounding but would never manifest in reality.
Meanwhile, in ancient eras, teachers were as sacred as heaven and earth.
Teachers shared the same status as one’s parents. Why was this so? After a student took on a personal teacher, that teacher would have the obligation to teach them well, truly imparting to the students everything they had. The results of a teacher teaching one student compared to teaching over a hundred students were naturally different.
Qi Shengjia, Lu Qi, Shi Qiao, and Cai Tan. Sun Mo knew that these students really wanted to take him as their personal teacher. However, why didn’t he accept them?
He was worried that he wouldn’t be able to teach them well.
Being a teacher in Middle-Earth Nine Provinces was different from being a teacher in the No. 2 High School.
In the No. 2 High School, if a student failed to qualify for college, it was very rare for them to scold the teachers. But in the Nine Provinces, Sun Mo would be slapped with the tag of ‘useless’.
Why would a teacher need at least one of their students in the Greencloud Rankings before they could become a 2-star great teacher? Moreover, to rise to a 4-star from a 3-star, one of their students had to ascend to the Hero Rankings!
This was to test the coaching ability of the great teachers.
Even if you reached the legendary realm before 30, achieving an unprecedented feat that was impossible for others to accomplish in the future, if you couldn’t teach a student that could ascend to the Greencloud Rankings, you would never be able to get the title of a 2-star great teacher.
After all, their main job was to impart knowledge to the students!
Sun Mo’s six students were recruited in the student recruitment meet. At that time, he had just arrived at Jinling and wasn’t familiar with the custom of the nine provinces. Besides, he had only accepted them for the sake of accomplishing his mission. But after that, he grew much more cautious.
Sun Mo’s current concept was this. Either he didn’t accept a student or if he accepted one, he had to do his best and polish the student’s talent, allowing him or her to become an accomplished person. At the very least, they wouldn’t waste their lives!
“You guys are actually still chatting? How brazen!”
Seeing Sun Mo and Gu Xiuxun still have spare time to chat, Chunyu Kong was so angry that his lungs felt like exploding. (I’m actually being underestimated?)
Chunyu Kong no longer hesitated. He brandished a sword and cut his left wrist.
Fresh blood sprayed but it didn’t land on the ground. Instead, it was as though it was controlled by an invisible hand and used to draw a bizarre-looking rune.
Chunyu Kong changed silently. He wanted to summon his strongest spiritual beast, but every time he summoned it, he would lose a large quantity of his blood essence.
There was no solution to this. This particular spiritual beast depended on his blood essence as food.
Sun Mo was an avid gamer in his previous world. Seeing the current situation, it was clear that Chunyu Kong was about to unleash his ultimate. However, how could Sun Mo let him succeed?
Sun Mo focused his eyes, Buddha Look!
Two golden beams of light shot toward the blood-colored rune before Chunyu Kong, directly destroying it.
“It’s useless, the summoning ritual has already been completed!”
Chunyu Kong laughed uproariously.
Reed Crossing the River!
Sun Mo instantly appeared behind Chunyu Kong.
Colors of Autumn!
In that instant, Chunyu Kong’s vision was completely blocked by the wooden blade. This feeling was like he stood at a river’s side, watching the autumn rain drizzling down as withered leaves fell all around him.
The myriad of living things were heading toward their deaths!
The back of Chunyu Kong’s head was hit by the wooden blade, and it directly exploded like a broken watermelon.
One corpse fell onto the ground.
The monitor lizard, falcon, and venomous snake rushed over to save their master. They directly crashed into Sun Mo, but that was just a clone. The real Sun Mo had long since left this area.
Upon losing their master, these spiritual beasts froze on the spot. After that, all of them chose to leave.
“Teacher is mighty!”
Shi Qiao and Lu Qi shouted in fawning tones.
Although the other students didn’t speak, their morale increased greatly.
Chunyu Kong was the group leader of the Sky Orchid’s student group no matter how one looked at it. Also, he was a graduate from one of the Nine Greats. But in the end, he was crushed so swiftly by Teacher Sun.
Teacher Sun was truly strong!
“My heavens, Sun Mo is so ferocious!”
Qian Dun’s eyes were spasming. Although he had heard that Sun Mo had defeated a few teachers in the second round, he only knew how shocking Sun Mo’s strength was when he personally witnessed it.
Truthfully speaking, if it wasn’t for Sun Mo suddenly appearing, Qian Dun should be part of the teachers lineup together with Fan Yao. However, he knew that given Fan Yao’s personality, he would absolutely not make a decision like this, taking the initiative to attack Sky Orchid.
No, in fact, Fan Yao would simply watch as Sky Orchid subdued the White Tiger Guard.
Sun Mo’s way of doing things was very impetuous, but it felt so enjoyable!
Was this the tyranny of a true famous school?
Those who refused to submit would be killed!
Wang Chao looked at Sun Mo and suddenly felt a sense of worship.
“Congratulations, you have obtained a total of 5,120 favorable impression points.”
“Teacher Sun, can you give us some face? If you kill opponents so quickly, what should we do?”
Gu Xiuxun rolled her eyes. She seemed to be grumbling, but no matter how one listened to it, they could only hear respect, compliment, and even a hint of coquettishness in her tone.
Seeing Chunyu Kong’s head exploding from Sun Mo’s attack, the hearts of Liang Pei and the two teachers instantly turned cold. This Sun Mo was actually so powerful?
Their students weren’t in any way better. Each of them was struck with fear as their battle intent dwindled.
Liang Pei knew that at such a time, someone should take the lead and stand out, boosting the group’s morale. His lips moved but when he looked toward Sun Mo, all his words were stuck in his throat.
He really didn’t dare to say anything.
(What if I become the next person to die?)
After Sun Mo defeated Chunyu Kong, he didn’t continue to act. Just by standing there, he already constituted a huge threat and pressure. Liang Pei and the other two directly chose to focus on defense instead.
They felt that whoever stood out right now and drew Sun Mo’s attention would be the first to die.
“Accept your death!”
Wang Chao shouted in rage.
(Damn, if it wasn’t for the fact that I’m filled with trepidation toward Sun Mo, would I fear a salted fish like you?)
Guo Zihao cursed in his heart.
“Kill! Kill! Kill!”
Zhang Yanzong roared.
After Xuanyuan Po sent Bao Li flying, he rushed into the midst of the Sky Orchid’s student group and swept out his silver spear horizontally, breaking their formation.
Woosh~ woosh~ woosh~
Ying Baiwu shot out seven arrows in one go.
Her opponent did his best and evaded four arrows. In the end, his chest was pierced by the other three.
“Ying Baiwu, what archery technique is this?”
The archery technique Ying Baiwu trained in was definitely of the heaven-tier at the very least.
The iron-headed girl naturally wouldn’t reveal it.
“Hmph, even if you don’t tell me, I know it must be Teacher Sun who imparted this to you.”
Xu Dingjiang’s lips twitched. He didn’t forget the shocking archery skills that Sun Mo had revealed when they had just entered the ruins. Sigh, he really felt like taking Sun Mo as his personal teacher.
Sun Mo had been worried that the students wouldn’t bear to attack. But he soon discovered that he was thinking too much.
The Sky Orchid Academy was located in Yue Country, and their students were all the citizens of that Country. The Yue Country bordered on the Tang Country and they had disputes regarding territorial claims for over several hundred years.
If they were from Tang Country, the students of the Central Province Academy might show mercy. But since they were from Yue Country, sorry then. (I don’t know what mercy is.)
Anyway, killing others was permitted by the rules of the competition.
“Don’t split up, stay in your small teams to fight!”
“Don’t kill randomly, target the weakest ones!”
“Xuanyuan, I’m talking about you. Go and kill their weakest students!”
Li Ziqi stood at the back. She no longer tossed out fireballs because the battle situation was already set.
Although the little sunny egg was directing the battle, she was very relaxed. After she said those words, the opposing students who felt that they were one level weaker than their peers would surely become cowardly and afraid to fight. They might even start to flee. By doing so, their side would be thrown into utter chaos and wouldn’t constitute any threat anymore.
In any case, the students were all just a bunch of children. How strong could their will be?
“Retreat! Retreat! Retreat!”
Liang Pei roared loudly. But after he shouted, his eyes were slashed by Gu Xiuxun’s sword.
Liang Pei screamed. At the next instant, the Sky Orchid’s student group collapsed. Their students fled in four directions in a panic.
“I didn’t expect Teacher Gu to be so kindhearted.”
Wang Chao was surprised. Gu Xiuxun’s capability was strong enough to kill Liang Pei.
“Maybe to him, losing his eyes is more painful than death.”
Gu Xiuxun self-mockingly smiled. She wasn’t afraid of killing, but she didn’t want to kill before their students. They might subconsciously lose their respect toward life if they kept seeing their teachers killing before them.
Gu Xiuxun called out. After that, she looked at Sun Mo. “You wouldn’t resent me taking matters into my own hands, right?”
Sun Mo shook his head.
Zhang Yanzong and the others stopped and started to cheer.
“Long-live the Central Province Academy! We’ve won!”
“The Sky Orchid Academy is merely so-so!”
The students shouted in excitement and high-fived each other in mutual celebration. The victory this time around brought them immense self-confidence.
Sun Mo clapped his hands. “Everyone, please be quiet!”
The students immediately quietened down and glanced toward Sun Mo.
Such presence caused Gu Xiuxun and the other two to feel envy.
“Teacher Gu has something to say!”
Sun Mo indicated.
Gu Xiuxun was astonished. After that, she felt a little moved. As expected, Sun Mo was a very understanding person.
Favorable impression from Gu Xiuxun +50. Reverence (4,510/10,000).
Upon hearing the notification, Sun Mo made a gesture of invitation.
“Students, firstly, I would like to congratulate you all on obtaining victory in the group battle!”
Gu Xiuxun smiled slightly. She clapped her hands and her expression turned solemn. She then sincerely spoke.
“Many times, killing is a very simple matter. However, I hope that in the future, before you guys kill anyone, you all can think about the preciousness of each life!”
The majority of the students exchanged mutual glances, not understanding Gu Xiuxun’s meaning. However, Li Ziqi and Zhang Yanzong had looks of contemplation on their faces. As for Tantai Yutang, he was sneering.
Sun Mo stared at Gu Xiuxun in astonishment. She was much more sophisticated than how she looked.
Gu Xiuxun wasn’t a saintess and wouldn’t object to killing people. However, she hoped that the students could understand what killing someone really meant.
Sun Mo had seen an education report of some countries before.
For kids in elementary school, there was a class that made them rear piglets for a few months. After the piglets matured and grew up...
They weren’t spared but were sent to the butcher instead, and the children had to eat the meat personally.
What was the meaning of this?
Everyone would have different feelings and thoughts after they experienced this!
“Teacher Gu’s words are enlightening!”
Sun Mo applauded.
Gu Xiuxun’s beautiful eyes glanced over at Sun Mo in astonishment. When she said these words, she was prepared to be thought of by the students as hypocritical.
After all, the students were still young. Their world view, outlook, and ideology weren’t fixed yet, and they wouldn’t be able to understand the meaning of her words.
When the students saw Sun Mo applauding, they started to applaud as well.
Words that were approved by Teacher Sun should be correct. Hence, the students started to seriously ponder over it.
“Alright, it’s time to deal with the other student groups!”
Qian Dun glanced at the spectators.
