Thanks! Many years before entering teaching, I arrived at the opinion that cynicism is the best form of self defence (and, indeed, self presrvation) ... this seems to be serving well in my new career!! And re ticking boxes, yes, I know. Right or wrong, the GTP is an evidence-based course. I knew this when I signed up, so whether I like it or not I know that I need to tick those boxes, fill those folders and jump through those hoops! Not long to go now though! As a maths trainee I feel at both an advantage and a disadvantage because of the above. This is the simplest and possibly most effective form of differentiation (maybe not 100 questions on the board, but ...). However, this is quite unique to maths and therefore isn't as "recognised" by a lot of non-maths trainers. I think I disagree with this, though. The vast majority of teachers differentiate naturally and without having to think about it ... fear then makes them put big flashing neon signs around it whenever SLT/Ofsted come near the classroom. PS - starting to think I should have picked a different username ... can it be changed?
