She challenged teachers to consider this. I have begun to notice my own mindset much more over the last 12 months and I think, after Carol’s talk today, I am far less filled with growth mindset then I like to think I am. I praise my own and students’ effort when the strategy being used and the learning being attained is vital. Some really honest reflection and evaluation to be done in the coming weeks and months. Like Ken, I apologise in advance with the notes approach to this post. 9 Tips to Inspire Determination □□ (by @finleyt) #edchat #education #elearning #edtech #engchat #mathchat #ukedchat. Ten teaching techniques to practise – deliberately. It’s a well-established idea that, to develop expertise in a particular skill or technique, you need to practise.

Ten teaching techniques to practise – deliberately.

The more you practise, the better you get. As outlined by the excellent people at Deans for Impact in their Practice with Purpose document, it helps to identify a specific element of your teaching to practise on and then focus very deliberately on improving in that area. Instead of flitting from one thing to another, dipping in and out, the suggestion is that teachers would do better to select one thing from all the options and try hard to keep at it until the practice feels more like a habit.

Questioning Traps. “A prudent question is one half of wisdom” Frances Bacon.

Questioning Traps

There is always something slightly tentative about the first two weeks of term: students are eying us up carefully, deciding exactly how they are going to respond to our magnificent lessons (rather Machievalian I know!) I have had an interesting week with a Year 9 group who at the moment are heroically quiet, eerily quiet in fact. I think my slightly austere initial (very Scottish) demeanour has rather thrown them, and the attempted light-hearted puns have failed miserably. There have been glimpses of personality, but so far there has been a number of teacher led moments that have reenacted this brilliant scene from ‘Ferris Bueller’s Day Off’: As I have been repeating my best “anyone, anyone” impression, I have been thinking about the number of questioning traps that I have unwittingly stumbled into through the course of the week with this group.

Now, clearly questioning is a vital teacher skill in so many ways. Time. Visual guides to evidence-based teaching techniques - TeachingHOW2s. How do pupils 'transfer' their learning. Please RT!

This term I’ve been using independent learning projects with some of my classes in year 7 & 8.

READING - Developing Independent Learners

At the start of the topic I discussed with the students the success criteria for the topic and asked them how they would like to go about carrying out the scheme of work. We discussed several ways of working on this SoW a) a menu – where students select ‘items’ from the menu to produce over the term to produce a piece of work that meets Bronze, Silver or Gold standard. b) personal choice – where students could make their own decisions on how to present their work c) guided – where the teacher provides suitable learning activities to meet the success criteria Each class voted for b – personal choice. We then discussed whether working in groups or individually would be better. The majority of year 7 decided to go with groups, again of no more than 3, but a few wanted to work individually as they felt they would get distracted working in groups.

It was a powerful symbolic moment—an inescapable reminder that the challenge of teaching low-income children has become the central issue in American education. The truth, as many American teachers know firsthand, is that low-income children can be harder to educate than children from more-comfortable backgrounds. Educators often struggle to motivate them, to calm them down, to connect with them. This doesn’t mean they’re impossible to teach, of course; plenty of kids who grow up in poverty are thriving in the classroom.
