The Entertainer



Meet the winner of the Teaching Award secondary teacher of the year 2005 (south-east), a popular teacher and keen advocate of Assessment for Learning. Behaviour expert John Bayley observes his teaching.

Andy Latham is a former circus entertainer who now channels his performing zeal into his secondary lessons, as head of science at Hove Park School, Brighton.

John spends the day with Andy, watching him introduce two Year 11 classes of different abilities to the subject of comets, meteors and asteroids.

From using videos and interactive whiteboard graphics, to group work in which Key Stage 4 students work out, discuss and present their findings, Andy powers the lessons from starter activity to conclusion.
