Outstanding teaching using the new #Ofsted framework Firstly, this is not a model, just an experience… Ofsted background: …Throughout my teaching career, I’ve been part of 5 Ofsted inspections, dating back to 1997 as a class teacher, and most recently in 2011, my second as a senior teacher… When starting my current school, Oftsed had departed the day before! My wife, after 11 years of teaching has only been ‘subject to Ofsted’ once, but I’m sure some teachers across the country have averaged one every 2 or 3 years! My average is every 4… On each of the occasions I have ‘been done to’, the framework has changed and so has the experience; alternating from reply-slips and no-comments from the observing inspector, to a broad smile, coupled with detailed feedback and a reciprocated pair of ears.

Edunators - Helping Teachers Overcome Obstacles and Focus on Learning - Lesson Planning Using The Four Critical Questions Details Written by Mark Clements If your school operates as a Professional Learning Community, chances are you’re very familiar with the Four Critical Questions originally developed by Rick DuFour. They’re essential whenever first starting a collaborative team in a school and well worth reviewing from time to time as you carry on your work. Draft national curriculum programmes of study Earlier this year the department published proposals to reform the national curriculum so that it is slimmer, focused on essential subject knowledge and which, especially in the core subjects of English, mathematics and science, compares favourably with the curriculums taught in the most successful education jurisdictions in the world. Since then we have conducted a public consultation on those proposals and have given careful consideration to the views of those individuals and organisations that responded. As a result, we have made a number of revisions to the national curriculum framework document and the draft programmes of study. You can now view the government’s formal response to the consultation exercise, and the summary report of responses. You can find the new framework document and programmes of study, along with the consultation document on the legislative Order for the new national curriculum and details of how to respond on the consultation page on GOV.UK.

Teaching Objects - A Lesson Planner That Integrates Google Drive Teaching Objects is an online lesson planner that I stumbled upon today and that I think has great potential. The first thing that you'll notice when you try Teaching Objects is that you have to create your account using a Google account (either a personal account or a Google Apps for Edu account). Then you can optionally authorize Teaching Objects to access your Google Drive and YouTube accounts. Giving authorization will enable you to pull materials from your Google Drive and YouTube accounts into your Teaching Objects lesson plans. Teaching Objects can be used without authorizing it to access your Google Drive and YouTube accounts. Even if you choose not to authorize it there is a nice feature of Teaching Objects that you might want to try.

Lesson Plan Research by @Angel_Solutions This blog discusses learning episodes (sequences) designed within lesson plans, using data from real lesson plans which teachers are now creating using the new Digital 5 Minute Lesson Plan. As of 12th November 2014, 15 days after launch, there have been over 2000 plans lesson plans created using the free digital tool with visitors from over 75 countries! This is a guest blog featured on School Improvement Net. Angel Solutions took a sample of nearly 500 anonymised lesson plans created on www.5minutelessonplan.co.uk by teachers from all over the world. They then analysed how many learning episodes teachers chose to include in each of their plans and whether these were primarily student- or teacher-led. The idea is to see what we can glean from ‘real’ lesson plans teachers are actually using with their classes right now.

Jane Willis and Dave Willis – Willis-ELT If you want us to tell you about new lessons as we post them please send us an email. NEW: Three lessons based on written texts at the intermediate level. All of these lessons begin with a prediction task– learners are given clues and are asked to predict the content of a story based on the clues. The lessons then go on to do some detailed language work. Lesson 1: I’ve just jumped off the Empire State Building.
