Wordslinger’s Note

There’s a teacher blog I’ve been following that is better than any other teacher blog out there. It’s a rare and refreshing experience after so many public sector blogs which are basically Broken Britain wailing walls. I recommend this post, and also this:

Obviously his school mentor was somewhat perturbed by his odd body language. Indeed, following one lesson observation, she apparently delighted in regaling the staff room with a detailed account of his unorthodox manoeuvres. She closed her account by turning to him and asking him whether he was sure that he really wanted to become a teacher or whether he’d ‘rather become a cowboy stripper’. Needless to say, the hesitation in his response did little to diminish the mockery.

Recent 3:AM stuff includes a review of Wingnuts: How the Lunatic Fringe Is Hijacking America, John Avlon’s look at the derangement of the American Right, and also a piece on Marilynne Robinson’s Absence of Mind which has been all over the Guardian and NS. Finally, 3:AM‘s editors have done an idiosyncratic version of one of those broadsheet summer reading lists.
