1. No two days, classes, students, are the same. It goes in many ways to what Coe said in his recent report:
“Ultimately, the definition of effective teaching is that which results in the best possible student outcomes. There is currently no guaranteed recipe for achieving this: no specifiable combination of teacher characteristics, skills and behaviours consistently predicts how much students will learn. It follows that the best feedback to guide the pursuit of effectiveness is to focus on student progress…”
There is no recipe with teaching, it’s about being completely focused on the child and then using your knowledge, experience, skills and humanity to do the best you can for each child.
