Discover how a group of students at a school in Bedfordshire have been trained to observe and offer feedback on the way teachers teach.
At Hastingsbury Upper School in Bedfordshire, a dozen students have been trained to observe and give feedback on teaching styles.
Melissa Waller, a young dance teacher is finding her Year 10 troublesome. They take too long to get changed, often forget their kit and talk too much. Melissa discusses these problems with Hannah Anthony in Year 12 and Cherry Spencer in Year 11 who then observe her lesson.
Their feedback offers a new perspective for Melissa and they come up with radical ideas on how she might begin her lesson. They also discuss how to deal with the close friendship groups that seem to threaten her authority.
Melissa has no qualms about listening to the student voice and feels it is important for her development. Hannah and Cherry are pleased to help but thought it strange at first to be giving advice to teachers.
