We visit an MFL lesson with Stephanie Geary. Steph has a relaxed teaching style with her Year 9 class, but Sue has some cautionary advice. Meanwhile, Gail Clarke has been meeting some tough challenges in her Year 8 art class. Sue joins her in the classroom to suggest some new strategies.
In between these visits, behaviour expert Sue Cowley fields some questions on classroom control in a question and answer session with all the NQTs. ‘How long should you have to wait for silence?’ and ‘How do I deal with swearing?’ are two of the questions on the minds of these teachers in their first weeks in the classroom.
