What is your advice about? Planning

  1. Simplicity is under-rated. Complex lessons aren’t necessarily good.
  2. Focusing on what is learnt is more valuable than focusing on how it isn taught. Being clear about the content of your lesson(s) is key.
  3. Don’t be afraid to spend more time on something if it appears students are struggling with it.
  4. Focusing on the scheme of work/curriculum is more valuable than focusing on individual lessons.
  5. Be clear on the conceptual thinking you want students to do. If you dont get it, students probably won’t.
