Hello, Sorry if this is in the wrong place! Due to a not-very-nice last school my confidence has been seriously rocked, everything about my lessons was pulled apart last year, there were no positives. Or one lesson the positive praise was- I smiled at one point. But I digress. I'm being observed tomorrow in literacy, I'm going to be teaching direct speech (again, as they still don't understand, I have the lower ability group for literacy). I've decided to go down the iPhone text messaging route. Has anyone done this? Briefly, what did the lesson look like? I have done my planning but would like some reassurance that I'm doing the right thing. Now I have been observed at my new school and I had an interview obviously, but both previous times I taught maths. Now I'm teaching literacy. Has anyone got any advice on things I definitely should be doing in my lesson? It might be obvious but I just need speaking to like you would a first year trainee teacher. Any advice would be gratefully received.
