Hands up if you've ever been given lesson observation feedback that you didn't understand, didn't agree with, or just thought was plain rubbish.
If your hand is in the air, you're in good company! When it comes to teachers receiving high-quality feedback that helps them improve their teaching, we have a serious issue in our schools. Teachers want to improve their teaching. They embrace any opportunity to learn. They want other professionals to watch them teach and to get into conversations about developing their practice.
What they don't want is to be criticised, patronised, sent down blind alleys, or left utterly confused.
Those who've been giving feedback telling teachers to 'differentiate more', 'talk less', or 'let students lead their own learning' have a lot to answer for. The Teaching Delusion 3: Power Up Your Pedagogy has been written to address the issue of teachers receiving poor feedback in our schools.
As a self-improvement and coaching resource, it is essential reading for all teachers and school leaders. Through a detailed exploration of 12 key elements of pedagogy, author Bruce Robertson sets out a clear, researched-informed guide to improving pedagogy in every classroom, across every school.
By highlighting key features of effective practice and a broad range of techniques teachers can focus on developing, this practical guidebook will be valued by professionals in all sectors, regardless of experience.
The Teaching Delusion 3: Power Up Your Pedagogy completes The Teaching Delusion trilogy with a bang!
