Why teachers need Formative Assessment too

Why teachers need Formative Assessment too | NGOs in Human Rights, Peace and Development | Scoop.it

When you saw the image above, it may have surprised you in some way.

If you’re a teacher, you may have instantly wondered if you would, should, or could do it, and I bet if you’re an administrator you probably wished your staff already did.

Reactions I’ve had from it so far include ‘how brave’ to ‘how crazy’ to ‘that’s inspired’ to ‘what a brown nose’. But the hyperbolic reactions don’t surprise me, because being observed, no matter what anyone says or desires to be true, still remains a teacher’s most hated part of teaching, and having someone actively seek it out is …..well, just hyperbolically irregular.

For a long time I preferred to be left alone in my classroom. Here’s why:

I was confident I was doing a good job.I was confident that I could self-identify issues if or when they arose.Having someone in the room made me a little nervous, and I felt slightly unnatural as I went about my craft.I thought what I was doing in the room could be judged out of context.

Euan McColm: Why Blair speech heralds birth of a new party

Euan McColm: Why Blair speech heralds birth of a new party | NGOs in Human Rights, Peace and Development | Scoop.it

Tony Blair had barely finished his speech when Labour “sources” stepped out of the shadows to underline its irrelevance. The reaction to the former prime minister’s intervention in the Brexit debate was, according to one member of Jeremy Corbyn’s team, “a collective shrug”.

Peter A Bell's curator insight, February 19, 9:18 AM

I was amused by the notion that the argument between left and right was never emotive and fractious. Euan McColm gazing wistfully backwards with rose-tinted view as he pines for the old simplicities and certainties of the British politics he grew comfortable with.

 

Having said that, he does show signs of at least attempting to come to terms with the a changing political environment. His perspective on Scotland's political scene is as shallow as ever. But at least he's caught up with reality enough to contemplate the death of British Labour. Something many (most?) of us accepted as a done deal some time ago.

 

And what does Euan McColm envision as the kind of party that should fill the vacuum left by the demise of British Labour? What sort of party does he see as fit to fill the niche vacated by British Labour? I suspect he would be sorely reluctant to admit it, but what he describes in this regard sounds very much like what those with an awareness of Scottish politics would recognise as the Scottish National Party. The real SNP, that is. Not the grotesque caricature favoured by British nationalists.

 

Some of us having being saying for years that what England needs is its own equivalent of the party which has won the respect and support of Scotland's electorate. Looking at the state of England's politics it is difficult to avoid the conclusion that our southern neighbours would benefit greatly from a large injection of the SNP's trademark principled pragmatism.

Peter A Bell's curator insight, February 18, 3:58 AM

It is a measure of how warped British nationalists are that a statement by the odious Tony Blair, who is just about as far from being a 'friend' of the SNP as it's possible to imagine, is nonetheless twisted into a reason for yet another episode of demented, dishonest anti-SNP hatemongering.
