An interesting article on expat life, useful to bear in mind for ourselves as teachers with colleagues arriving and moving on, but also our students who are undergoing the same difficulties in a transient community.
Another lovely, in some ways reassuring article from the Guardian. Click here.
Very interesting article here from the Guardian about why exam classes take priority and how KS3 accordingly suffers... ring any bells?
The Guardian caption claims that "teachers often hardly know their key stage 3 students apart, as schools allocate their resources to year groups doing outside exams." To what extent do you think this is the case?
A few tips up here which are worth bearing in mind. Thank you to Mr McHugh for sharing :)
I by no means agree with everything proposed here but I do believe that we could all take some of these ideas and use them productively...
