You know the scene...you walk into the notoriously strict teacher's classroom and see ALL the children's heads down scribbling away. You think, well this is too good to be true, there must be a few children who were too scared to ask for clarification on the task while the teacher was swinging a childs pigtails around the room for missing a capital letter. But as fate wills, they all can give you perfectly formed answers rooted in their own progression through their learning. You sit down with your clipboard and all you can think about is the opening of the Holy Grail scene from Indiana Jones - your mind quickly races to the educational enlightenment equivalent of Neo in the Maxtrix. Have I just witnessed something? Why are there no angels singing and why does gravity still work? 

I've had my fair share of deafening styles from different schools: my first placement, my second, head of year for my NQT year. So the question presents itself - if this teacher has such a revered reputation within the school, consistently getting the best results and recieving the most beautifully written speeches from year 6 leavers (some of which would make Churchill himself give up his spot for this new 'national hero') why did we ever move away from defeaning and wholeheartedly embrace nurturing?

Do you need a certain personalitiy to be able to pull off such a style? Is it only the teachers who sleep in the chokey, have the facial intimidation features of Mad-eye Moody, the pure evil of heart of Baron Samedi and spend their weekends making friends in Brixton Prison who can pull it off?
Does it require a voice capable of making Sergeant-Majors wish they'd never been born?

Much of the education world will say thats not the example we want to set, we want to show them a different way, a new way - one rooted in confidence and nurture. The rest will say we've lost high expectations, motivation and discipline. We know where the public, I mean the Daily Mail stands, but is it completely fair to judge this approach as of a different era when we knew not how to teach?

I don't know if we have a choice. Has Gove started what an envitable Conservative majority would continue? Are we to prepare ourselves for the resurgence of deafening teaching?

You have written a great blog by its teacher learns their responsibility as well as concreting to the students, especially schools’ student needs strong knowledge about their basic study but for that do not move in any faculty easily. But parents now have the opportunity to help their kids with the help of the net there much kind of information is present in each one and there anyone can access easily. Even there many guys continue their basic education from online for getting Accredited Life Experience Degree in any faculty in short time.

Day for day children are close to the technology and get far to the basic study cause of it, they do not prefer to study and just desire to use the web and social channel and they think that there we can learn basic and higher education easily without any problem, but they totally destroy day to day only alloy this kind of at that time when they need and provide it limited time rather than any time.
