Observing a Lesson and Giving Feedback: A Guide to Best Practice

Observing a Lesson and Giving Feedback: A Guide to Best Practice

This resource provides a comprehensive guide to best practice in observing teaching and offering constructive feedback to colleagues. Based on the most recent research on facilitating teacher improvement, this 5 page document contains practical, hands-on advice that is suitable for lesson observation in both secondary and primary settings. It offers a ‘coaching’ model for supporting colleagues in reflecting on their own practice through the use of a ‘guided’ questioning framework. This will prove helpful both for those who have just taken on responsibility for the performance management of other staff or more experienced middle or senior managers wishing to refresh and update their approach. Both a PDF and Microsoft Word version of the guide are provided so it can be fully customised to reflect the teaching and learning priorities of an individual school.

🕑 Essential Teacher Resources 🕑 Timetables for Revision, Parents' Evening & Teachers

The most interesting resource here is my idea for a FLEXIBLE revision timetable that worked very well with my daughter and was later loved by many of my students. The most important rule is: You don't fill anything out in advance. Let's say on Monday you really feel like doing some maths (obviously) and also your French teacher has set you a revision task. So you spend the evening studying maths and French. I usually advise between 30 mins and an hour on each subject depending on the strength of the student, so a total of 1-2 hours per evening. After studying, you fill out the Monday slot with what you actually did e.g. Maths: Trigonometry, French: Shopping vocab, and, most importantly, you cross off an "M" and an "F" from the subject grid at the end. This is repeated all week, but you're only allowed to study subjects that you haven't crossed off. By the weekend you're left to study the final remaining two subjects, and this ensures that you spend a fair amount of time on every subject without forcing you to do a specific one each day. This also leaves Sunday free to either relax or to catch up with any subjects you missed during the week for whatever reason. The subject grid can be modified to include multiple squares for more important or weaker subjects. For example in the attached version English is Poi's second language so we assigned three out of the twelve slots. Also included: 🕑 An aesthetically-designed set of timetables for a biweekly teacher's timetable. 🕑 A simple Parents' Evening timetable to put outside the room for parents to refer to. 🌟😊🌟 PLEASE RATE THIS RESOURCE 🌟😊🌟

Johari Window Model Workbook / Lesson

Johari Window Model Workbook / Lesson

This is a 7 page workbook that introduces the topic of the Johari Window. This is a widely used model for understanding and training in a variety of self-awareness dependent activities such as: personal development, communications, interpersonal relationships, group dynamics, team development and inter-group relationships.
