Teaching. Delivering the Impossible!

Apparently, though I am currently in denial, OFSTED have decided that every lesson that a teacher delivers should be life changing. Mmmmmm! I am, by nature, a pessimistic person, but I think even an optimist would possibly struggle with how this is supposed to happen. As someone who is no longer particularly youthful, I can pinpoint three events in the whole of my life, that I would class a life changing. Unfortunately, none of them occurred in a classroom setting. The first is getting married. The other two, is having kids. Neither of which seem particularly suitable for a lesson plan. Looking over the Psychology syllabus for inspiration, we do cover gender identity. Perhaps we might give a practical lesson on gender change. I’m not sure it would be classed as ethical, but they would certainly remember it!
