© Crown copyright 2010, Department for Education Behaviour – even in cover lessons without adults! “I was expecting a difficult cover lesson but behaviour was exemplary. They did ALL the work including the work from Tuesday which some of them hadn’t completed. I think they deserve praise from their teacher to make them realise teachers don’t only talk about bad behaviour. Thanks PS: Your plan of mixing adults and teenagers is working fantastically.”
© Crown copyright 2010, Department for Education How well did we achieve the aims? Wider benefits to schools The adults’ feedback is highly reflective and instructional for teachers Adults’ world, cultural and linguistic knowledge contribute to the students’ learning experience Adults model good study skills and good learning habits and students benefit from this modelling Adults are adept at using the language they learn creatively and personally from the outset The appetite for learning that adults display has exposed short-comings in the materials we offer in terms of homework and independent learning
