POST: Telephone coach
WANTED: An educationalist (teacher/blogger/consultant), with a leaning towards a traditionalist or evidence-based approach.
JOB DESCRIPTION: You will be required to take part in a one-off 30 minute phone call with a frustrated teacher who feels increasingly isolated in a world of progressive teaching methods based on little else than intuition.
JOB REQUIREMENTS: The frustrated teacher wants to discuss a number of things with you:
- Dealing with resistance to research or evidence-based methods because they’re ‘too didactic’ – How do you cope?
- Time management- how do you allocate time to teaching/planning/reading research/ blogging.
- Career prospects- is the frustrated teacher destined for a career in a profession resistant to traditionalist methods? Is Michaela the only school that espouses a knowledge-centred approach?
- Tips on how frustrated teacher can encourage other teachers to share his passion for evidence-based / traditionalist approach to teaching and learning.
