Andy Roberts

A secondary geography teacher takes the pedagogical challenge Sydney Russell School in Essex rates secondary geography teacher Andy Roberts as a ‘good’ teacher. We bring in top inspector Clare Gillies to assess one of Andy’s Year 9 lessons. The inspector’s feedback after Andy’s lesson on urban regeneration highlights some clear areas for improvement.
He’s then off to our clinic to get some one-to-one help and advice from secondary geography advisor Ruth Totterdel on pedagogy, and from our voice and communications coach, Ulrika Schulte-Baukloh. Andy then has just three weeks back in the classroom to turn their advice into action before the inspector returns to observe a second lesson and deliver her final verdict. Will Andy make the grade? Will he raise his game sufficiently to go from ‘good’ to ‘outstanding’?
