I think this man is a genius

    This picture moves me. You can see and sense the teaching and learning. I know I'm biased because I've loved MR for so long and read about his political and humanitarian activities as well as his poetry and performance. In this picture it's the way the man is looking at the child with such intensity, willing her to think. Or am I just imagining it.

    Sorry but who is he?

    Michael Rosen, writer, education activist, fantastic performer. Sorry, the picture was off twitter and must have been quite unidentifiable out of context.[​IMG]
    If you don't know him you should watch his poetry readings on you tube.

    I'd be more impressed if he had a full timetable.

    Thank you. I'll take a look. The photo seems to have taken during an era before OFSTED targets an Learning walks.

    Try also the Youtube video 'Michael Becomes Increasingly Explicit'. I shan't link to it here for fear of causing panic.

    Whoops. I thought in the first picture that it was Jeremy Corbyn!

    The male teachers at our school would be sent home if they attempted to take a class dressed like that.

    Also, we're required to do joined up writing when modelling work for the class.

    (Nothing like missing the point of a thread! ;))

    You're not imagining his passion and intensity. No.

    With that, he'd go down well on the X-Factor.

    Yes, I'm sure Michael probably applies for it annually. :rolleyes:

    Is the education secretary a qualified teacher? What about the last one?

    I would be very impressed if you could divine this from the rear view of the crowns of some children's heads. I suspect you are just looking for nice things to say about someone for whom you have more than admiration.
