Why we thought it was effective

How we suggest you use this DVD

  • Use it as a model to recognise how different interests and abilities effect student learning.

  • You can build on it and adapt the methods shown refining your own teaching techniques

  • Show it to the students and teachers within your school and discuss meanings and views on how to change or adapt your school.



Manifesto l.jpg

Small, inclusive classes

Good teacher-pupil relationships

More discussions, less reliance on textbooks

Varied lesson structures

More independent learning/research from a younger age

One-to-one tutorials

Recognise potential and let people know of their options

Theoretical and applied instead of academic and vocational

Enthusiastic teachers

More subject specific

Tying in creativity with productivity

Linking school life to the wider world, lessons on current affairs

Too much focus on exams

Lack of preparation for transition between key stages

Too much pressure from teachers and other students

A brief overview, we want details

Pushing for grades not potential

Lack of balance between grades and potential

Over reliance on technology, solely learning from a computer screen, we want more hands on teaching

Ignorance of what is going on around us

Lack of encouragement for participation socially

Ineffective generic career days, we want one-to-one advice

Manifesto

What we want to see

What we don’t want to see
