Why we teach overseas -Heard on the news quiz

Discussion in 'Teaching overseas' started by batrachian, May 8, 2012.

  1. From the TES
    " One PE teacher was reportedly told that their lesson was "unsatisfactory
    as there were children doing nothing at some points in the lesson". The
    decision was overturned after it was pointed out that the pupils were
    fielding in a cricket match."

    No idea what this has to do with why we teach overseas.
    But in my cricketing days I loved fielding. Half the brain sharply concentrating on the task, the bat and ball ... the other half free to wander any old where. This became a model for my professional life.
     
  4. Hilarious! What a complete and utter.... Dude, I think that the poster is implying that avoiding inspectors like that is one of the reasons we leave Blighty. That said, there's no avoiding them these days.
     
  5. This is true. We have a group of old farts smelling of piss to leer at our work from time to to time. Last time out some old, grey-suited, wrinkled codger observed my lesson. I had no feedback and have not the foggiest clue what he thought of it.
    Good job I don't give a ****, eh?
     
  6. Yes, one of the reasons...although personally avoiding cricket or any sports altogether would have been a incentive.

    Ah, yes, thanks, now I get it. Took my eye off the ball.
    A keen sportsman all my life, I nonetheless think that forcing it on kids is one of the evils of school life.
    Pharaoh, PM me for feedback on that lesson of yours that I observed...
     
  8. Only if you dry clean that suit of yours more than once every ten years.
     
  9. As we stood in front of the lined up class I asked him his name. He said 'Roger'. I said to the class 'Say good morning to Mr. Roger.'
    'G----O----O------D M........O........R........N.........I........N........G M.......R... R.......O.........G........E.........R...... '
    So, I'm guessing my review wasn't strong...... [​IMG] .
