Outstanding Geography Lesson?
« on: March 29, 2010, 05:17:47 PM »
SMT have instructed that in order for our school to move forward in view of our recent ofsted satisfactory rating we need to identify within our subject areas what an outstanding lesson graded 1 on the new oftsed framework looks like and why? What are they looking for?

I was wondering wheter anyone knew of video evidence or of INSET specific to Geography of this so we can disect from a subject persepective what makes an outstanding lesson during a departmental INSET.

Thank You

Alex

Have you tried this section on teacehrs tv website about outstanding lessons
It is about pace challenge ensuring all pupils know targets, current level they are working at and how they have to improve

I don't know if the stuff on teachers tv will have necessarily caught up with the most recent set of ofsted gradings.

Mind you, as they'll probably start looking for something different again next month/week/year I imagine it's an never ending chase anyways...

Yeah, OK, I'm not a fan.
I loved the words you wrote to me/But that was bloody yesterday

Too true - we were shown one from teachers tv at cpd session that was graded outstanding on the old style but that the training inspector told us was only satisfactory now!
