Interesting program on Aust ABC TV this week. The program touches superficially on the private vs public school resourcing debate. However the main focus was on strategies being implemented in schools to enhance the quality of teaching. The program looked at some interesting initiatives for giving teachers feedback on the quality of their teaching. The feedback came from a range of sources including a ‘teaching coach’, video recording and students themselves. Well worth a look!
Many of our teachers operate in a void. They don’t get feedback on how to improve their teaching nor sufficient recognition and appreciation for the great things they do! This is an area that can have a MASSIVE impact on student achievement. Well worth investing our time and energy!
