Nothing strikes such fear into the heart of the over-worked, under-valued teacher as the prospect of inspection. Perhaps it is because we feel it often involves being measured against and boxed into a de-humanizing four-point scale. Few of us glow with pride when we are awarded the dubious title of SATISFACTORY; even more frustrating sometimes can be arriving second at the finishing line with a 'didn't-quite-make-it' GOOD. So how do we ensure that the much coveted OUTSTANDING box gets ticked? And why do an elite few keep it such a privileged fellowship? Pimp Your Lesson! reveals, in detail, the secrets to impressing the pants off your observer, whether it be your Head of Department, Headteacher, Mentor or - worse still - Ofsted! This new edition contains guidance on addressing and incorporating current government initiatives and strategies, and lots of additional innovative ideas to enhance your lessons. Updated in line with the latest Ofsted criteria, this edition will help you to meet the outstanding mark, both in observed lessons and your daily teaching.
