The silver arrows of education


No, I just can’t resist a good metaphor! Here is a great post by Tom Sherrington with ten teaching ideas that can ‘penetrate the armour of your ingrained practice‘, and I really like how he distills the strategies he finds useful into this pithy list. For example, marking and feedback should be an action plan; teach to the top to stretch your students; do lots of formative tests… This should really be on a poster somewhere. Wait, someone has made a very useful infographic of the Silver Arrows: just scroll down the original post.
