‘OUTSTANDINGLY SUCCESSFUL TEACHING’BELIEFS

  • Transformability rather than ability of children
  • Success for all not some
  • Intelligence is multi-faceted
  • Every child needs a worthwhile relationship with at least one adult and it may not be you
  • A child’s failure to learn is a challenge to your teaching strategies not a sign of ability on the part of the child
  • A child showing great effort in learning is a positive sign of character not of a lack of ability

Sir Tim Brighouse | Suffolk Headteacher Conference 2009

slide12

‘OUTSTANDINGLY SUCCESSFUL TEACHING’Habits & Behaviours

  • Always improve their story techniques
  • Always polish their skill in questioning
  • Always extend their best explanations
  • Mark other colleagues’ class assignments
  • Observe other colleagues teach
  • ‘Sing from the same song sheet’ – up to a point
  • Treat teaching as a co-operative activity – use ‘we’ a lot
  • Store and share DVDs on teaching
  • Use formative and ipsative assessment in their marking
  • Teach ‘alongside’, ‘behind’ and ‘infront of’ youngsters
  • Share leadership and management
  • Teach in the corridors
  • Share their ‘hyacinths’ of learning
  • Accept the unpredictability of teaching

Sir Tim Brighouse | Suffolk Headteacher Conference 2009

slide13

‘OUTSTANDINGLY SUCCESSFUL TEACHING’Habits & Behaviours

“Of some of our teachers we remember their foibles and mannerisms, of others their kindness and encouragement or their fierce devotion to standards of work that we probably didn’t share at the time. And of those who inspired us most, we remember what they cared about and that they cared about us, and the person we might become. It is the quality of caring about ideas and values, this fascination with the potential for growth within people, this depth and fervour about doing things well and striving for excellence, that comes closest to what I mean in describing a ‘passionate teacher’”

Robert Fried

So what are the rules of delegation?

Sir Tim Brighouse | Suffolk Headteacher Conference 2009

slide22

Rules of Delegation

  • Look into this problem. Give me all the facts. I will decide what to do.
  • Let me know the options available, with the pros and cons of each. I will decide what to select.
  • Let me know the criteria for your recommendation, which alternatives you have identified and which one appears best to you, with any risk identified. I will make the decision.
  • Recommend a course of action for my approval.
  • Let me know what you intend to do. Delay action until I approve.
  • Let me know what you intend to do. Do it unless I say not to.
  • Take action. Let me know what you did. Let me know how it turns out.
  • Take action. Communicate with me only if action is unsuccessful.
  • Take action. No further communication with me is necessary.

Time

They sit on the wall not the fence

They are ‘skalds’ not scolds

They teach, learn and assess for most of their time

They spend their evenings weekends and holidays…working…socialising and being a member of a family

They spend two hours a week planning and carrying out acts of unexpected kindness
