The Essential Guide to Lockdown Teacher Improvement with Tom Sherrington

Play
Read more

It has definitely been a very strange week. My wife is working at home, so like many people out there I’m sure, I have my two year old boy full time, alongside trying to wrestle with our new online teaching world.

As joyful as it is getting to spend some time with the wee lad, I’m sure I’m not the only one who is a bit concerned about the sudden void of more intellectual stimulation that this new isolated existence is presenting. I'm sure I'm asking the same question as a number of teachers: what can we do to keep ourselves motivated, engaged and developing in this classroom free environment?

A man who can answer these concerns, is Tom Sherrington. Tom runs the hugely popular Teacher Head blog, and is the author of a wide range of excellent books about teaching and learning. His new book ‘Teacher Walkthru’s' with Oliver Caviglioli, which is out this weekend, is exactly what we need in this lockdown CPD mode. It is a brilliant step by step guide on how to improve all aspects of what we do in the classroom.

In our wide ranging conversation we discuss his new book and explore how teachers can continue to develop – even without teaching, the research and the books that can keep our passion for teaching going, what really does make effective CPD – and what qualities do we need as a teacher to improve? Finally for those who might be using this time to work on curriculum, Tom shares his thinking on how to do it effectively.

On this episode of the Mr Barton Maths Podcast I spoke to Tom Sherrington.

Tom is an experienced former Headteacher and teacher who now works as an educational consultant. He has worked in, and led comprehensives, grammar schools and international schools for 30 years, giving him an incredibly wide-range of experiences to draw upon. He is a popular speaker at events such as researchEd, is the creator of the very popular and thought-provoking blog, teacherhead.com, and is the author of one of my favourite education books of recent years, The Learning Rainforest: Great teaching in real classrooms. Regular listeners will know that this is Tom’s second appearance on the show – and if you haven’t already, I’d recommend you check out the first one where we cover the key ideas from The Learning Rainforest.

But Tom is back with a new book, and one that is making waves around the country. Indeed, some schools are buying copies for every single member of their staff. The book is Rosneshine’s Principles in Action, which takes Barak Rosenshine’s Principles of Instruction and showcases what they might look like in the classroom.

Bt we didn’t just stick to discussing the ideas from the book, because when you get chance to speak to someone like Tom, the opportunity to delve into other fascinating areas of education proves irresistible.

So, in a wide ranging conversation, Tom and I discussed the following things, and plenty more besides:

  • What has Tom learned since we last spoke?
  • What has he changed his mind about?
  • What are some of the key features of successful schools that Tom has worked with over the last year?
  • Then we dive into all things Rosenshine:
  • What is Tom’s favourite principle?
  • Which one is the easiest to put into practice right away?
  • Which feels most counter-intuitive?
  • Is there a danger that these principles could be misused in schools?
  • And finally: will we look back one day on these principles in the same way we now look back at learning styles?

I loved this conversation. I always get loads from my conversations with Tom, and I am so pleased I had the opportunity to go deep into this fascinating area of teaching.

Season 2- Episode 5 with Tom Sherrington @teacherhead on Rosenshine's Principles in action.

Play

In this podcast Tom and I discuss Barak Rosenshine's Principles of instruction and his new book:

Rosenshine's principles in action

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Rosenshines-Principles-Action-Tom-Sherrington/dp/1912906201/ref=sr_1_1?crid=2N3XDPVU0G9RL&keywords=tom+sherrington&qid=1558382763&s=gateway&sprefix=tom+sherring%2Caps%2C135&sr=8-1

In this book and podcast Tom amplifies and augments the principles and further demonstrates how they can be put into practice in everyday classrooms.The second half of the book contains Rosenshine's original paper 'Principles of instruction' as published in 2010 by the IAE.

We discuss:

1) So why are Barak Rosenshine’s ‘principles of instruction’ so good?

2) The reason I started this podcast is to make research accessible for teachers through sharing the experiences of teachers engagement. To what extent does Rosenshine bridge the research-practice divide? Taking the ideas of the page and into action 

3) How well do you feel that principles of instruction are supported by the learning models from cognitive science?

4) What role does a knowledge rich curriculum play in the implementation of Rosenshine’s principles?

5) Strand 1 looks at sequencing concepts and modelling. What relevant instructional procedures could teachers use here?

6) What repertoire of questioning strategies have you found useful for teachers? (Maybe some discussion of link to TLAC and Lemov)

7) How can teachers go about making daily, weekly and monthly review part of an effective and sustainable routine?

8) In conclusion, I know of many schools that have bought the book for all staff , how can schools use your book to support the process of professional development?

Tom Sherrington: The Learning Rainforest

Play
Read more

On this episode of the Mr Barton Maths Podcast, I spoke to Tom Sherrington.

Tom is an experienced former Headteacher and teacher. He has worked in, and led comprehensives, grammar schools and international schools for 30 years, giving him an incredibly wide-range of experiences to draw upon. He is a popular speaker at events such as researchEd, is the creator of the very popular and thought-provoking blog, teacherhead.com, and is the author of one of my favourite education books of recent years, The Learning Rainforest: Great teaching in real classrooms.

So, in a wide-ranging conversation, Tom and I covered the following things, and plenty more besides:

  • What did Tom learn in each of the different school environments he worked in?
  • What is Tom’s favourite failure, and what did he learn from the experience?
  • What are the Rainforest and Plantation metaphors that Tom uses throughout the book, and am I so wrong in thinking that the Plantation set-up is rather appealing?
  • What is a knowledge-based curriculum, and what would its opposite look like?
  • Would Tom prescribe essential elements of each lesson – eg drills, low-stakes quizzes – or leave individual teachers to decide?
  • If Tom was a Head of Department today, what would his departmental meetings look like?
  • How does Tom observe a lesson and give effective feedback?
  • Then it all kicks off as we discuss assessment, and I ask Tom about “macro summative assessment tracking”, how it manifest itself most commonly in schools, and why it is so bad?
  • Then we dive into Mode A teaching, focussing on two killer strategies: Signal, Pause, Insist, and Think, Pair, Share
  • Then it is time for Mode B, looking at developing independence in our learners, and the beauty of Structured Speech Events
  • I then ask Tom what piece of research has most significantly influenced his thinking or his approach to teaching?
  • And finally, what does Tom wish he’d known when he first started teaching that he knows now?

I am going to come out and say it: I think this episode is another classic. For me, it is right-up there in terms of its applications to teachers of all subjects with the Dylan Wiliam, Daisy Christodoulou, Doug Lemov and Harry Fletcher-Wood episodes. This one in particularly has lots of takeaways for teachers who observe lessons, run departments, or even run schools. It was a privilege to talk to Tom, and I think you are going to love the conversation.

Two quick plugs before we crack on:

Obviously, if you buy one book as a result of this episode, make it The Learning Rainforest. But if you are interested in reading about 12 years of maths teaching mistakes, then maybe take a chance on my book, “How I wish I’d taught maths”, available from all good and evil book stores. And if you have read it, and you have time to give it a quick review, that would be ideal…. So long as it is a good one, of course.

And if you are interested in spreading the word about your product, service or event to 1000s of intelligent, engaged, and quite simply incredible listeners, then I am now offering the opportunity to sponsor episodes of this post. Just drop me an email at mrbartonmaths@gmail.com.
