I am signed up to receive GTCS twitter feeds and today I received the top tip for probationers: "Try not to get a song stuck in your head". I really do not believe that this tip will improve my teaching. I like to hum a wee tune from time to time and whilst my pupils probably believe I am bonkers, I don't think it affects their behaviour nor does it affect my street-cred (at least not to my knowledge). Anyway, was this top tip some kind of joke? I really think GTCS could have done better than this. What about some behaviour management tips or advice on assessment for those teaching certificated classes. Rant over.
