    Why was my membership declined?

    I'm pretty sure my membership will be declined too.
    I did look at the site. it made me feel a little queasy. I also studied the content of some of the lessons. TBH, they seemed like pretty bog standard lessons to me....
  5. I've had a quick look at some of the lessons and there are some fab ideas there. I particularly like the Anne Frank idea and I've tried learning logs before.

    I also wanted to add a word of caution; the thing that makes an outstanding lesson is not 'wowness' but children being engaged with their learning and progressing within the lesson (I'm sure experienced teachers already know this). None of these ideas will produce an outstanding lesson unless adapted for your class. Just thought it might be a useful point to make, especially with interview silly season looming.
  6. My membership was declined too.....! :-(

    When were they declined?

    Haven't declined anyone's membership. Will check it out now and see what's happened.

    Yes, some of the lessons may look pretty standard, but delivery is important too :)

    It was the culmination of a lot of effort from many members of here and I found and still find the whole thing incredibly useful and worthwhile

    (PS edited to try to change the we're to WERE and adjust line spacing etc but it doesn't seem to be working. Using phone so maybe that's why?!)

    I've just checked the site and can see no declined memberships. I'll have another look later when I'm not on my phone.

    If you send me your wikispace user name via the private messages on here, I can have a closer look if that's ok.
  11. Absolutely. Outstanding ideas are futile unless they are properly matched to the needs of the learners. In terms of inspection/monitoring, the one off 'wow' lessons that make outstanding are a thing of the past.
