The Emperor's New Clothes

Discussion in 'Scotland - curriculum' started by Frecklefeatures, Jan 12, 2012.

  1. It looks good when you're walking past a class and they're all talking/looking creative (at first glance) - scratch beneath the surface and the reality is that often very few of the children have the remotest grasp of what they're supposed to be doing, and they're the ones everyone else is copying off (which makes them LESS confident learners, not more). Fed up seeing resource-heavy (i.e. expensive/wasteful/who used all the ink) displays being praised up, noisy & chaotic classrooms being lauded as 'examples of excellence' by SMT, and multiple pupils who need clear, consistent teaching being left behind in the midst of all this. Let's hope this fad passes quickly, all reason seems to have flown out the window.
