I'm feeling really terrible following HMI monitoring visit. I was told that one of my lessons - inspector present for less than half an hour - was judged to be "inadequate" due to lack of progress because a group of children took too long to settle down to work while I was working with another group. I admit this did happen (I noticed during the lesson, and was onto it straight away) and I feel absolutely terrible about it. My other observed lesson was fine, I've never had anything said to me like this before in over 15 years of teaching, and I feel I've let down the school, the children and parents. . Anyone had this happen to them? What did you do about it? I'm thinking about having a chat with HT, asking for some help/training to improve my teaching. What do other poeple think?
