Move Me On 132: Already the best teacher in the department

The problem page for history mentors

By HA, published 5th December 2008

This issue's problem: Phyllis Wheatley already seems to be the most effective teacher in the department. How can her mentor ensure that she goes on learning?

Phyllis Wheatley is several weeks into her second placement and her mentor, Selina, is acutely aware of how impressive her teaching is already. A degree in history followed by an MA in film studies have given her an excellent understanding of how and why different interpretations of the past are constructed, and equipped her with a great range of examples on which to draw in her teaching. She is confident in using different ICT applications, not merely to capture students' interest, but to promote critical analysis and provide alternative ways of communicating knowledge and understanding of the past.
