Just a lighthearted blog for the end of half term. These are some lessons about teaching from the movies.
Kindergarten Cop – Own up to your mistakes. We are humans, often under stress and not infallible. As long as the students are at the centre of what we do!
Finding Nemo – Don’t be afraid to have fun. We work with children and childhood should be fun. Right?
Matilda – Don’t put on an act. This Secret Teacher article is very depressing but I imagine we have all changed something we usually do for SLT or Of•••d. We need to cultivate confident innovative, real teachers.
School of Rock – Share your passion. If you are excited by your subject that is contagious, a great teacher can hook students into almost any subject.
