I'm thinking of publishing a new teaching scheme...

Discussion in 'Primary' started by tafkam, Aug 24, 2008.

    I think that it should be £150 for cheap-skate schools and £200 for schools who want the 'premier' lunch, refreshments and cakes during the day [​IMG]

    'Premier' attendees get to wear a big flashing badge and have a candle/lava lamp on their table [​IMG]
  2. It must have an acronym, preferably long (about 8 letters?)

    With the new emphasis on Speaking and Listening I think I have found the new acronym for the company. It is essential they are all undertaken in that order if the Centre Of Logical Order Notation is to ensure its standards are maintained [​IMG]

  4. Do you think (bearing in mind the need to train up the new generation of NQTs) that we roll the programme out to trainees, and then they take it into schools on teaching practice as the 'new scheme' that they are working with.

    All this is sounding so exciting I just can't wait[​IMG]

    Conferences will certainly not be one-off events!! I am thinking of three conferences per week, hire a big pub/hotel with wedding room, cram 100 in with data projector. Give 'em a pie and a pint for lunch. At £350 per head, fhat's £35000 a day, say £1000 for room and pies. Allowing some leeway for refunds and damages to premises, we can clear £100000 plus per week. Split between me and Tak, south of Birmingham, of course. Peeps who want to run piffilng 'workshops' will have to cost down accordingly.

    I want in! Lardy - if you're doing Birmingham, can I be a subsidiary in Shropshire? I could be a
    Consultant for Regional Allocation of Presentations ,
    specialising in
    Presentational Information SeminarS - Utilising Powerpoint Slides

    Go on, let me!
  8. Be really careful with this idea as it's an open invite for SMT & consultants who are fully qualified in the aroma of bull pooh.

    Thankyou Thankyou Thankyou for this wonderful idea - my face is aching![​IMG]

    Now that Teaching......Big has been up and running for a while, isn't it about time you evaluated and perhaps thought about a catch up programme to accompany it....for all those not quite getting there with it.....

    Obviously experts will need to be trained in how to train the TA's who are going to be used to implement the 'catch up' programme...
  10. And of course the Enhanced Learning Enrichment phase for the cranially advanced, with a letter to take home to their parents allowing them to buy a club badge for their child that states how superior they are.

    Tafkam, it's brilliant. Please can we have a totally serious version without the crossings out for more serious joking around?!!!
  12. I love the poster![​IMG]
  13. will the Teaching Big Assesment Grid
    be known as T - BAG?
    and information on assessment for Parents / Guardians be called
    PG Tips T - BAGs


  14. A great thread but not happy that poor old Mozart is being dissed so badly. What has he done wrong to deserve inclusion in this extraordinary enterprise?

    How about a Teaching...Big! diagram of teaching and learning on the poster for we visual learners who are not so quick to pick up on these new things? And maybe Teaching...Big! should make some connections with buisnesses to produce ergonomic chairs and tables for learners who need to move whilst learning and water bottles with the Teaching...Big! logo?

    Can't believe I missed this. Copy of the pdf printed off and to be put in the entire staff's pigeonholes tomorrow morning.
    Tafkam, I salute you.
  18. This is the way forward.... educational excellence awaits!
  19. What a revolution to hit teaching. As a poor teacher of many years teaching I can now understand where I have been going wrong all these years! I have, without reserve thrown out all my 'old' teaching resources in favour of your new resources and have fully enbarked on this method of teaching without the appropriate resources or training (my school was too poor to fully take up the scheme so we borrowed another schools copy and made a few 'extra copies' - hope you don't mind?). The problem with this is that I don't have any healing colour crystals and page 53 of the handbook is missing, is it possible to get replacements?
    Yours Sincerely Mrs Ursula Greenway
    ps when are you planning to launch your TV channel Teaching Big TV?
  20. This thread would be funny if it weren't so seriously the truth.
