PLS Teacher Blog 14 – Esther

April 30, 2021

“Pause for five minutes to write down your answer, and when you’re ready, restart the video.” Perhaps that phrase, or one quite like it, is familiar to anyone who taught remotely this year. Pre-recording all my lessons, it was a phrase I said a great many times myself. A few technical glitches meant that some…

A Bad Case of The Burn-Out Lockdown has been difficult for everyone. A pinch of social isolation, a splash of Netflix binges, and a sprinkling of pyjamas bottoms is a recipe for a cocktail I do not want to be sipping on anymore. Due to school closures, my shaken-up not stirred cocktail had a new…

PLS Teacher Blog 12 – Esther Have you seen the film The Prestige? It’s an action-packed movie directed by Christopher Nolan, about magicians. Stick with me on this one, it’s relevant to teaching, I promise. I re-watched it over the glorious Christmas holidays, probably while ticking off my online-shopping list of all the exciting new…

‘The Trials and Tribulations of Narrated PowerPoints’ Like most people, I hate the sound of my own voice. Even worse, I hate listening back to a voice note of my own voice. Apparently, so many people hate the sound of their own voice that there is now a name for it- voice confrontation. I read…

PLS Teacher Blog 10 – Maxine 

February 12, 2021

PLS Teacher Blog 10 – Maxine It’s crazy to think that 60 years ago the mere thought of online teaching may have sounded completely foolish. In many ways, it still does. The impersonal lessons can get extremely difficult for those listening in and those teaching them. You are not able to read your students’ faces…

PLS Teacher Blog Number 9 – Megan The Trainee Teacher Survival Guide It is sometimes very easy to fall into what I call ‘the stress pit’. The stress pit is a mythological place that lives deep in my mind, I often imagine it as a deep, fathomless hole where light does not reach. It doesn’t…

PLS Teacher Blog Number 8 – Maxine

February 12, 2021

PLS Teacher Blog Number 8 – Maxine New term. New classes. More work. It’s strange to think that the notion of having more work can actually bring forth excitement. A new set of faces to recognise and personalities to get to know. After two weeks of isolation, I was extremely worried, and I felt that…

February 12, 2021

PLS Teacher Blog Number 7 – Farhana Welcome to my Classroom. For many of us PLS salaried trainees, we would have been fortunate enough to get our own classroom in placement school A. Our own classroom you say? What on earth am I meant to do with that? How should I use up all that…

PLS Teacher Blog number 6 – Ben Today, something clicked. Finally. It’s 8.35am and I have twenty-five minutes until 9rEn1 begin disembarking the One-Way Corridor Express, primed and ready for their first stop of the day: English. We’re in the process of preparing for their half-termly assessment, and so this week they’ve been treated to…

PLS Teacher Blog Number 5 – Zainab

February 12, 2021

PLS Teacher Blog Number 5 – Zainab Teaching Science, to me, is not less revered than a religious rite.  My love of Physics is as great as Professor Walter Lewin’s, who authored the book, ‘For the love of Physics’. But I wish, the passion for a profession and the love of a subject were good…
