An outstanding lesson is...

An outstanding lesson is... nobody noticing that the bell has gone.

An outstanding lesson is... "Miss that was good today, can we do it again?"

An outstanding lesson... asks why.

An outstanding lesson is... empowering

An outstanding lesson... moves beyond levels.

An outstanding lesson... sees mistakes as opportunities to learn

An outstanding lesson... delights in the journey not just the destination.

An outstanding lesson is... "After yesterday I went and  found this out- can you
have a look?"

An outstanding lesson is... spontaneous heated debate among students about the correct method to solve an equation.

An outstanding lesson is..."Sir, Mohammed explained how to do that question to me- can you give him a Vivo?"

An outstanding lesson is... GCSE pupils creating something on the A- level syllabus on their own initiative, unawares,  as a response to a fellow pupi'ls question.

An outstanding lesson is.... "Sir, I've prepared a lesson for today after that thing we did the other week. Can I teach it tomorrow?"

An outstanding lesson... allows students to cut their own keys to their own lock.

An outstanding lesson is... a lesson where the teacher doesn't say a single word for an hour but the students all move forward in their understanding.

An outstanding  lesson is... a series of what ifs?

An outstanding lesson... always follows the learning but it may not follow the plan.

An outstanding lesson is... so much more that a check list.



This post was inspired by the "Love is..." series that used to be in our Sunday paper when I was a child.
