With the start of new school year already underway, the first Blog of the week for this new academic year goes to Andy Tharby for his post Three ways to become a teacher again.
…the greatest teachers I have worked with seem magically to combine both – a wonderful depth of subject knowledge and an acute empathetic understanding of how school makes young people feel. That’s what I’m gunning for this year.
This weeks blog of the week isn’t a blog but a video of David Weston’s recent TedX talk.
In the talk David outlines the principles of great teachers by drawing parallels with great doctors and dancers.
