This blog post from Andy Warner has really got me thinking as a new term gets into gear.

He wrote it after an in-house CPD session run by an experienced teacher whose traditional styles have proved effective year in year out. What do you think?

" We also agreed that the time wasted on gimmicky teaching was far better spent reading up on our subjects to improve and deepen our own subject knowledge, rather than creating shallow, superficial, fun activities that benefited no-one and burnt teachers out as they tried to think up even more original ideas and struggled to manage volatile, unpredictable classroom environments."
