I hope you are all well and (for readers in my part of the globe) had a fantastic summer
With the new academic year just around the corner, I want to share four things you might want to listen to for some inspiration and so you can hit the ground running…
Heads of department
Listen to my interview with Femi Adeniran and Matt Findlay. We discuss all aspects of leadership, including culture, lesson drop-ins, schemes of work, and departmental meetings. An interesting place to dive in is at 56:46 where we discuss how to balance the need for consistency across your department with a desire for teacher autonomy.
Listen to my interview with Adam Boxer. We discuss Adam’s approach to lesson observations and coaching which is based on the hypothesis model. This conversation completely changed my approach to supporting teachers. An interesting place to dive in is at 54:45 where Adam describes exactly what he does in the lesson he is observing.
Listen to my interview with Craig Latimir. We discuss Crag’s approach to lesson planning, from looking at an upcoming topic on a scheme of work to how it translates into responsive teaching in the classroom. An interesting place to dive in is at 1:29:04 where Craig describes his approach to modelling.
Listen to my conversation with Ollie Lovell where I asked him what he does in the first lesson with a new class. Jump to 58:36 to hear his response. And if you want some more ideas for that first lesson, then check out my Slice of Advice episode from a few years ago.
