Bonne Question This is why teachers leave teaching On Thursday, Mark Clarkson wrote a blog post that started off like this: I seriously considered leaving education today. And if I had a viable exit strategy I might have taken it further. Note the end of that sentence: a young, talented teacher with so much to offer the world feels like he has no ‘viable exit strategy’. I should know. You should go and read Mark’s post. On top of the ridiculous workload teachers like Mark experience each year, he notes that the benefits aren’t exactly stellar: At the same time I am told that I will have to work for another 36 years. I’ve been out of the classroom for just over two years now. Although I would say this, I think we need a review of what we’re doing when it comes to schools. I’ll give the last word to Mark. I’m not leaving teaching today, because there are still too many moments that I enjoy. Image CC BY-NC paulbence
TeachersTalk :: Teachers Forum Teachable: Top Quality Teaching Resources Formation balado La formation se déroule sur 2 jours. Lors de la première journée, les stagiaires s’initient aux manipulations de base (abonnement à un podcast, transfert de fichier sur lecteur MP3, captures d’écran , mise en page sous Word) et élaborent une fiche de compréhension à partir du fichier audio sélectionné qu’ils pourront tester sur leurs élèves avant la séance suivante. La fiche est ensuite mise en ligne sur le site à l’attention des collègues.

Targets, targets, targets Target: Make a table. So, you need wood, screws, a saw, screwdriver, a tape measure and spirit level. All the raw materials you need are laid out. Setting to work, you know that as long as you put everything together properly, follow the instructions and give yourself the time, you will end up with a table. But hang on, the wood has been taken off by someone else to be given some extra intensive wood training. You want to make a table, so you get the materials and you are directly responsible for whether the table ends up being fit for purpose, or whether it looks more like a small rodent shelter. In teaching, you may have the raw materials, but there are so many variables. However, students are not planks of wood. Don’t get me wrong, poor teaching should not be allowed to hamper student progress. We seem to live in a time where when something goes wrong it is someone else’s fault.

Reform the Death Star of Ofsted, or it's time to blow it up. - Tom Bennett - Blog - Tom Bennett It was a year ago, at the London Festival of Education, that I listened to Michael Wilshaw, the Commissar of Ofsted, promise a packed room that from then on, the inspectors wouldn't be looking for a particular teaching style; that what was sought was, instead, evidence that children were learning, however it happened. The Dementors of recent history, with their prescriptions and prejudices, were to be retrained and taught to smile. This mattered, because many commentators, myself included had long noted that Ofsted had become a lash and a rack of good teaching, rather than an instrument of accountability. It had gone from microscope to centrifuge; it affected rather than observed the school experiment. True to his word, Wilshaw has harrowed the guidelines into a less prescriptive shape, insisting that teachers would no longer be scored down for failing to satisfy this Shibboleth or that. Plus there is a greater concern- the quality of the inspectors. It could be done.
