Maths teachers have it easy!
THE ENIGMA OF EDUCATIONAL ENGLISH
Whilst ‘Literacy and Numeracy’/ ‘Maths and English’ are always referred to and compared in unison, maths is traditionally studied with a priority topic in focus until the point of assessment.
This methodical process reduces ‘over-load’ for the teacher of maths by providing a singular focus to planning, preparation, delivery, formative assessment, marking and monitoring.
This methodical process reduces ‘over-load’ for the learner of maths by providing a singular focus to their demonstration of understanding.
Lack of methodical process or priority-focus within educational English creates constant ‘over-load’ for teachers and learners.
What if English teachers and learners could focus on one thing at a time too?
