  2. Amen, sister!

    I feel your frustrations! I have nothing else to add because you have already stated my opinions perfectly. That TPT article was very badly received as you can see from the 100+ comments. I’m sad to say that our opinions are seemingly in the minority. I really don’t get it. Here’s me thinking it was about the kids! All kids, not just mine. I think it’s a really sad direction for the profession. My generous and inspiring PLN keeps me motivated, especially on Twitter. I have no time for TPT because I totally disagree with the concept.

    Thanks for sharing this post!

    Secondary HoDs should be encouraging and facilitating the sharing of resources and effective teaching and learning practice. Also HoDs should share across subject areas to synchronise similar topics to prevent repetition.


  4. One issue with sharing resources is quality control. Curation of resources is a big deal. It is very easy to share resources, but without evidence of efficacy or basis in sound pedagogy, we can just be proliferating damaging ideas. These are well covered in “Nix the Tricks”. It is one thing to teach badly to one class, but another to spread the damage further.
    And yes, I do have a vested interest in this discussion. I am part of a social enterprise that makes resources for teaching and learning mathematics and statistics. We have to charge for them in order to pay the rent. In return, we make sure that they are of a very high standard and supported by current research.
    I don’t have any answers, but do think the issue is complex.
