Hitting Teaching Standards 2 and 6 throughout the taught lesson (and beyond)
In My view, Teaching Standards 2 and 6 are central to ensuring pupil progress and are a good starting point for excellent teaching and learning.
In observations, the observer wants tangible evidence that the pupils in that lesson are making good progress. I think that explicitly demonstrating pupil progress is crucial to a successful lesson.
The key question I find useful when planning my lessons is:
So, what evidence do you have in your hand, your head and your classroom that pupils have made progress?
