Tutor description

In the week following the Dunblane tragedy, I drove to a city in the south-west of England to visit a primary school and observe a teacher for a research project. The school was on a large council estate in a very deprived part of the city. It had electronically-controlled doors, a voice-entry system and visitors’ passes. Such heavy security is now common-place, in the wake of that tragedy, but I was surprised, and realized that vandalism and theft must be rife in that area. I wondered, as I pressed the bell how it would be to teach there, and what lesson I had come to observed would be like. I was privileged to watch one of the best and most exciting lessons I have ever seen or taught.

As I entered the room, two children arrived carrying an overhead projector (OHP). All the children had their coats on, normally against school rules, but David explained that he would be taking them into the playground later, and had given them permission. This change in routine, and my arrival caused some excitement. There was more bustle as a child brought in cartons of milk. While the children drank their milk, David placed an overhead transparency of a Roman galley on the projector. The childrens attention was immediately focused on the image on the classroom wall, an
