Why is this?
a) Lack of discipline in schools which prevents any effective teaching
b) Fashionable new teaching methods which have replaced the simple and highly effective:
Teach something and make the kids practice it over and over again.
Group discussions, peer assessment and individualised methods of learning.
I have criticised these silly ideas so many times that I feel I am starting to sound like a stuck record. Maybe I should just give up blogging and stick to working on Chalk Enterprises.
