It's that time of year again when everyone gets "professionally developed" What are the new ideas which you are being asked to implement? Which ones will be out of fashion by next June? What is your daftest/most mind-boggling PDD experience? I was thinking the other day about listening to someone telling us how to manage behavior. She was all bright eyed and bushy tailed and announced "I've been doing a degree!" We were expected to be impressed and say "Ooh aren't you clever?" It was a light-bulb moment when we realized that the person who had been lecturing us on behavior management and conducting official lesson observations, together with feedback and improvement targets wasn't even a teacher. Hadn't got a degree. Hadn't got a PGCE. Had never taught a class in their life.
