I read recently that a ‘normal’ child asks one question per subject per month. Separate research (yeah, yeah, not comparable data) shows. [...] we still posit the teacher as the unprompted giver of knowledge, as well as the inquisitor of those with fewer facts in their brain. But is that about the most efficient way of transferring understanding, or simply the best method of authority and crowd control? With all the chunter about the flipped classroom and changing the mechanic of learning, shouldn’t we flip the balance of power in the classroom instead? Shouldn’t children be asking the questions and teachers providing the answer?"

The Emmy nominated Medieval Lives by legendary Monty Python star and medieval scholar, Terry Jones.
Unknown truths about the Middle-Ages..Lots of clever animations. Clear British accent, great intonation . Appropriate music.Great to supplement a class , book study, ect...B1 and over. Some extracts could be used for A2. Primary secondary, adult native English classes.
"Ep 1 - The Peasants The stereotype of the medieval peasant is a toothless, filthy, ignorant wretch. Or were they? Terry Jones discovers that peasants were in fact literate, emancipated, highly political and legally savvy, house proud and and responsible for the peasants revolt of 1381.…
Ep 2 - The Monk Terry Jones examines the truth behind the medieval monastery. The ideal of giving up everything for a life of prayer and solitude was often undermined by monks' ability to make money out of almost anything; from sheep, iron-smelting, and even prayer itself.
Ep 3 - The Damsel The modern image of medieval women is passive, shy, vulnerable and constantly in need of rescue. But the reality is very different. The damsels that Terry Jones discovers, ran businesses, led armies and, when they felt like it, even abducted the lovers of their choice.
Ep 4 - The Minstrel Terry Jones investigates the truth about Minstrels, often seen as luvvies wandering the country to entertain the courts of lords and ladies with whimsical songs. But medieval showbiz could be a very risky business, often finding themselves involved in wars and politics.
Ep 5 - The Knight Terry Jones examines the romantic notion of the Knight in Shining Armour had little interest in rescuing damsels in distress. They were far more interested in the fine arts of killing people, making money and becoming famous. Terry discovers some unsavoury truths.
Ep 6 - The Philosopher Terry Jones puts a different view on Medieval scientists, or philosophers as they were known. Not only did alchemists, physicians and engineers of the Middle Ages make key scientific discoveries but they also had an ethical approach to their work.
Ep 7 - The Outlaw Were medieval outlaws really like Robin Hood and were the sheriffs evil and corrupt. The answer is no. Terry Jones discovers that Sheriffs were pen pushing bureaucrats and the biggest threat to law were the gangs of up…
Ep 8 - The King Terry Jones asks just how much we really know about our medieval kings. Using the three king Richards as a sample, he discovers that 'Good' King Richard the Lionheart was anything but, and discovers one 'king' who's been deliberately airbrushed from history."
