I am writing a story and in a short part of it I will have to describe a Japanese classroom. The teacher in it will be rather old and very traditional, from a much earlier generation. I need to know how the students and teacher would interact and what kind of formal etiquette the teacher would expect from her students.
The children are 11-15 years old and the teacher will be in the classroom before they arrive.
I am looking for things like how they would enter the room or what they would do upon entering. Would they great the teacher in some way? Would the teacher acknowledge them? Would they raise their hand to answer a question? Would they stand when answering? would she assign seats to them according to their progress in class, rewarding the top students with the front seats or something? Those are the kinds of things I am looking for so that I don't write something too far off base.
The teacher is very old, strict, and lacks a sense of humor. She is hard but fair, not cruel.
I have googled all over the place, but I'm not finding what I need, so I appreciate any help you can give me.
