Hi all! I just want your opinion and some feedback I received on my final NQT observation in a Year 11 GCSE group, in the middle of their mock exams. Some of it doesn't sit quite right with me, and I just wanted to know if it was just me being oversensitive/paranoid. A few of the comments are... "Books are disorganised, with a lot of sheets to be stuck in. Not all work has titles. They need organised books for revision." "Praise used during the lesson (be careful not to use sarcasm)." "Think about your timings. Students had too long on some tasks and this gives time for students to become distracted / poor behaviour (not necessarily in this group but in general)." I can take criticism about marking books, but how am I meant to take responsibility for making sure sheets are stuck in and titles are written in an entire GCSE class? Also, I use sarcasm with a few of my classes (mostly GCSE and A Level) and they seem to react well. And was there a need to point out that there wasn't bad behaviour, but opportunity for there to be? I said immediately afterwards that I knew some timings were off, but is that comment necessary? Or helpful? Help!!
