Today from the handbook of effective pedagogy

Today I gambled with my Year 7 class on a brain teaser.

If they got it, they wouldn’t have to do any work for the rest of the year (a tick under two weeks).

If they didn’t get it, it was work as usual.

Result: More focused minds than I’d ever seen.

Of course, they didn’t get it. Would they have escaped all work had they got it? I guess we’ll never know …

Thomas.

 

 

*No, they would have still done work.
