"Democrats know it better than anybody else So. There you have it. Donald Trump admitted out loud. He's threatening violence to stay in power on a related note the Atlantic has a must read chilling story by Barton. Gilman. Titled The election that Could Break America. Gilman appeared on CNN Wednesday night and said that this was the first time in his career that he broke the fourth wall in an article because what he discovered was so disturbing and dangerous to democracy did this. By starting with the proposition that president trump is never going to concede defeat. Now, he could win a legitimate electoral majority. But if he if he doesn't, he will not concede defeat and the system is surprisingly poorly designed to handle a president who won't concede concession as we end elections and trump's plan. is to halt the vote count with the day of votes to litigate. The rest into oblivion and what I learned for this article. And describe in great detail is that. He, and his people are talking about contingency plans to bypass the vote each state we think of electoral votes as just representing the results of the popular vote state-by-state at the constitute doesn't guarantee that state legislatures have the power. To appoint electors directly and legislatures in six of the battleground states are controlled. By Republicans and the trump campaign is talking about the possibility of asking those Republican legislators. To, disregard the popular vote because it has been rigged. and and to simply appoint trump electors to represent the state, we need to be prepared. The other big story broke Wednesday afternoon when the Grand Jury in Louisville Kentucky offered its report on the killing of Brianna Taylor and we learned that sadly nothing has changed. A grand jury indicted one of the officers involved in the fatal shooting of Brianna Taylor in her Louisville Home Brett Hankinson, but he was only charged with three counts of reckless endangerment for indiscriminately firing into a neighboring apartment not for the shots that hit Taylor, Hankinson and two other officers forced their way into Brianna Taylor's apartment in Louisville in a March thirteenth raid. Taylor's boyfriend fearing intruders fired his legally possessed gun and the officers responded with a flurry of gunfire. The other officers were not charged adding insult to Injury Kentucky's Attorney General Daniel Cameron further inflame tensions with his explanation of why our investigation.
It's the Little Things
"For want of a nail, the shoe was lost for want of a shoe. The horse was lost for want of a horse. The rider was lost for want of a writer the message was lost for want of the message the battle was lost for want of a battle, the kingdom was lost. Small things can have reverberating effects on history both good and bad. In fourteen fifty three, the great walled city of Constantinople fell it had withstood sieges for eleven hundred years. It had held off fire from the then state of the art cannons for weeks. The Byzantine said even Ford soldiers trying to tunnel under the wall autumn Turks were finally able to overrun the great city because someone left the door open. One of the many gates in the fourteen miles of wall had been left open during the night and the Ottomans flooded in. Killing Constantine the eleventh in the battle and bringing an end to the eastern Roman Empire. My Name's Moxy and this is your brain on facts. It was a freezing Christmas night in Trenton. New Jersey during the revolutionary war. The English Colonel Johann Gottlieb Rall. Commander. Of a mercenary infantry regiment of fourteen hundred has seen soldiers from Germany sat down to a good supper and an evening of entertainment. He and his men were celebrating their recent victories over George Washington's volunteer army, and of course, the Christmas holiday. Safe from the bitter cold and the pelting sleet inside a wealthy merchants home that they had commandeered. They relaxed safe in the assumption that no one in their right mind would possibly try to cross the Delaware River at night in a blinding winter storm. Someone challenged role to a game of chess, and before long he was deep in tactics and strategy. There was a knock at the door. And exhausted young. Messenger boy came in bearing a note from loyalist farmer. It's important to remember that about a third of colonists still consider themselves to be British and didn't want the revolution. Raw paid the boy little notice took the note and put it in his coat pocket without opening it. That pocketed piece of paper would cost him and the war effort nearly. Two hours earlier and ten miles away. Washington's men had begun being ferried across the icy Delaware. River. It took over ten hours to get all twenty four hundred men over to the New Jersey side. The conditions were so adverse five men froze to death. Then began the arduous march to Trenton in the dark. The plan had been to attack the town from all sides before dawn, but the troops didn't arrive until eight am. During the attack which lasted only an hour forty of the German. Henson's were killed and the remaining thousand surrendered. Colonel was mortally wounded. When his body was found the unopened note warning of Washington's crossing was still in his pocket. If role had read it, he would surely have had his gross of professional soldiers prepared. He allowed his pride and the weather to lull him into thinking his enemy was not a threat. Had he won the battle he may well have killed George Washington James Madison James Monroe John Marshall Aaron Burr and Andrew. Hamilton The. Second, most common premise in alternate history circles behind what if Germany won World War Two is what if the south one the American civil war? Two pieces of paper dropped in a farmer's field almost brought that about. Confederate General Robert E. Lee. Whose statue in the middle of my hometown of Richmond, Virginia has recently been given the historical context. It's so sorely needed. In the form of tons of. Graffiti. Issued Special Order one ninety one during the Maryland campaign before the Battle of Antietam. In the order lead divided his army, delineating the routes and roads to be taken and the timing for the units to reconvene. Adjutant Robert H Chilton penned copies of the letter endorsed them in Lee's name. Staff. Officers distributed the copies to various confederate generals. General Thomas Stonewall Jackson in turn copied the document for one of his subordinates, major general, D H Hill who was to exercise independent command as the rearguard. A Union soldier Corporal Barton W Mitchell of the twenty seven. Th Indiana volunteers found two pieces of paper bundled with three cigars as he marched across a farm in Maryland an area recently vacated by Hill and his men after they had camped there. The order provided the Union army with valuable information, concerning the army of Northern Virginia's movements and campaign plans. Upon receiving lease lost order. Major General George McClellan leading the Union army of the Potomac proclaimed. Here is a piece of paper with which if I cannot whip Bob Ely, I will be willing to go home. He immediately moved his army in hopes of foiling lease battle plans. When Lee heard a copy of special order one, ninety, one was missing he. He knew his scattered army was vulnerable and rushed to reunite his units Antietam Creek near Sharp's Berg. Lee's troops arrived tired hungry and many were sick. The Battle of Antietam, would go down as the bloodiest battle of the American civil war with casualties recorded as twenty, three, thousand dead wounded, which was usually as good as dead or unaccounted for over the course of the half day battle. That's nearly two thousand soldiers in our one every two seconds. When night fell both sides ceased fire together, their dead and wounded. The next day Lee began the painstaking job of moving his ravage troops back Virginia. Here, some scholars argue another solitary decision had far reaching consequences. Despite having the advantage. McClellan. Allowed Lee to retreat without resistance. From his point of view, he'd accomplished his mission by forcing Lee's troops from Maryland and preventing confederate win on union soil. President, Lincoln however thought McClellan missed a great opportunity to potentially end the war three years earlier than it ultimately would.
"barton" Discussed on Mr Barton Maths Podcast
"Oh. Twenty. Of. The. MAFS podcast with me. Quite Barton. Show where eight people who interest uninspiring me from the wonderful world of education this time around I was delighted to welcome back Mark Healy to the show. But just before we get into that, here's a word from a lovely brand new sponsors Q. The fancy music. Episode. Of Mr, Baltar Muffs podcast is proudly supported by auk maths. Now. One of the biggest changes to my planning teaching over the last five years is my increased awareness of the importance of providing retrieval opportunities for my students. In the past all my thoughts and efforts went into planning questions, activities, and explanations in other words, stuff to help students get something into their heads. What was severely lacking opportunities to help my students get that knowledge out again by assuming that just because students could do something they just been taught. It must've been learnt I found myself in a vicious spiral of teaching something moving all been having to teach you again and again, and again when students have full straightly forgotten thing that they once knew who. The problem is, of course, scheduling in retrieval opportunities is difficult especially when each child in classes different priorities in terms of what they need practice on, Moore needs more practice a straight line graphs whereas Josh needs to work on.
30 Miles Napa Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
"I. It's. From she wind binder DOT com. We have another wine review. This one's little different in kind of the same same time. It's from all. Three dollars and seventy five cents is fourteen, ninety nine. It's a Napa Cabernet Sauvignon. THIRTY MILES NAPA Cabernet Sauvignon twenty-seven teen. Shot. I don't know about fifteen dollars for an all. Usually for a storebrand, they have some advantages in pricing. So a seven, nine nine. storebrand trader Joe's. Grocery store. No matter. Is probably equivalent to attend a twelve dollar one. And a regular basis just because there's no, there's no marketing there's no advertising. You know there's a lot less distribution costs. There's just those costs and the difference between a legitimate. Eight dollar wine and. Then twelve dollar one is usually significant. There's usually more. Wine production techniques taking place. You know the really inexpensive wines, they very simple productions it styles dot good and bad. But you like a little bit more involved production techniques, slow up extra money there for that, and you can get that at a lower price with storebrand. But a fifteen dollar naphtha cab. I expect a fifteen dollar. Any fifteen dollars ready to be pretty good. And the difference too in a fifty dollars to Cabraha. Twenty. Isn't all that much it's usually marketing. It's usually. More well-known winery. You know. Better better av a little higher status in a it's usually. This wine that much better. Sometimes, it's that much better but the fact. that. So little has it here to buy a fourteen, ninety nine. All, these Cabernet Sauvignon. Because what was actually? kind of bargain is, is it a Barton? Actually. It's a good wine I've been drinking. But the economics are cheap wine change go to fifteen bucks but here's the one thing the solar for me. All these nine, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety, nine, champagne last year was one of the best wines I hadn't twenty nineteen and every sparkling wine had Susan I've got an answer to that and it's I haven't had a lot of. The website I love it bad some wines but none of them came close to that so far. So taking a chance on all be one. Hasn't been that much of a chance and this is really good. It's. Intense. It's got good flavor. Well, balanced nice wine. If you just want WanNa fifteen dollar one that I don't know it's actually a twenty one or twenty, three dollar one only perfect fifteen. All these polls, the trademark took their their brand names. You can tell trader Joe's wine to make support them which helps a little bit by going on the National Trade trademark registry. Will come. Lose the gadoe trademarks. You'll how if a whole nother story? But you gotTa know what direction that one came from. With all the owning the trademark. You don't nothing. But that means they also can. If the economics of the original deal change, they can go out and. Get a new producer. Whatever happens there they can still change. Even though I think was released twenty nineteen. Sit around while my all didn't have until recently. It's been around. There is there is A. Cabernet Sauvignon Glut Napa and Sonoma. Stuff. They had bumper crops for couple years in a row. And then Calvin nineteen pretty much shut down all the restaurants which are exactly where they were selling a great deal I. N. Cabernet, Sauvignon.

Breaking Down the New York Giants Initial Practice Squad
"Other thing going on with the giants roster is the shaping of their practice squad. We're not gonNA project who we think is going to be on the practice squad because as were recording it, we should receive some type of news by the end of the day Sunday, who is on the practice squad for some reason? You probably noticing this to the giants have been taking their time. To the fullest extreme to put in all this information, their fifty three man roster I think was announced. Ten or fifteen minutes after the required four o'clock deadline. Meanwhile, every other team had already gotten their stuff in before that chalk that up to Dave gettleman and Joe Judge trying to take their time in re be very detailed with it. They also this is official that we already talked about some of the claims but they have claimed offense tackle Jackson, Barton, wide receiver, Damian Rally, and then also safety Adrian Colbert they could either end up on the roster or be pushed to the practice squad. But the one thing that's worth noting and we're GONNA talk about the practice once official on another episode but it's worth noting that this season the practice squad is very. Very unique. It's bigger than it typically is and teams are going to be using it as a shuffling group that if someone gets sick, they can send them home quickly, sign them to come play right away they're gonNA travel. I would bet with most of if not all of these guys and have the bill availability to sign them immediately in the case of an emergency yet honestly to for me, that's kind of a step closer to what the practice squad should be anyway I I've never really liked the practice squad the way it has been where it's limited the guys who can be on it are very limited in the amount experience they can have and. They're really not protected at all. So any team can basically swipe a player off any other teams practice squad on very little notice. and. To me I I really do like these changes to the practice squad rules. The fact that it's bigger that the teams can keep more players around they don't have quite the same constraints on. Experience that we've seen in years past and the fact that they can promote guys from the practice squad to the active roster on basically ninety minutes notice. So I really like the flexibility that that gives teams and I'm sure we're going to be seeing teams take advantage of that this year probably in ways that the NFL isn't exactly planning on. And I wouldn't be surprised if there are certain aspects of this short-term practice squad for this season that are maybe tried to be translated into next year or come next CBS negotiation asked for by the players. So more players can stick around and be retained by their various teams it. It is a lot better like you said, Chris compared to way the way. That they've done it previously, it's better to have more guys if you can carry as many guys as they are allowed to this
Mail Delivery In Swing States Falls Short, Worrying Elections Officials
"You're planning to vote by mail this election, there are troubling signs that on time mail delivery is not meeting the standards set by the Postal Service. A PM reports the investigations unit of American Public Media analysed first class mail delivery data, and it found that mail service in critical swing states is worse than a year ago. Elections officials worry that late ballots may never be counted. Tom shek has the story. The Corona virus pandemic has prompted tens of millions of people across the country to consider something different this November voting by mail, Wisconsin resident Eliza Werner is one of them. In June. She and her husband requested absentee ballots for the August primary. But she started worrying after not getting her ballot after waiting a month as people started talking more and more about the upcoming election. I just thought, you know I really should have received that by now. It's been a couple of weeks, she says. She was told other voters in the Milwaukee suburb reported similar problems. The clerk canceled Warner's initial ballot and re sent new ones. Elections officials say Nearly 700 ballots were not delivered to Milwaukee area voters for this week's primary. And that comes just months after thousands of ballots didn't reach Wisconsin voters in the April primary. And analysis of mail delivery confirms voter complaints. The Postal District serving eastern and southern Wisconsin repeatedly failed to meet on time delivery goal since 2016 putting it in the bottom quarter of districts across the country. Wisconsin isn't the only swing state Postal district failing to meet delivery standards. Detroit's on time delivery for two day male plunged nearly 22% since last year. None of this surprises. Tina Barton, She's an election's manager in Michigan and says some primary voters there complained about never even getting ballots in the mail. So even a couple weeks prior to that I had a City council member tell me that they had gone four days and had not received any mail and so about a couple weeks prior to the election, I was really starting to sound the alarm to people and I had important, says she started telling voters who requested ballots in the run up to the primary to return them in person. Timely mail delivery is important because Michigan, like more than half the states requires ballots to be returned by election Day. Postal officials are urging voters to mail their ballots at least a week before Election Day. They also say they're working with elections officials to educate them about election male standards. Speaking before the Postal Services Board of governors last week, Postmaster General Lewis to Joy said election male will be delivered in a timely manner. We have delivery standards that have been in place for many years. The standards have not changed, and despite any associations to the contrary. We're not slowing down Election mail or any other male. We are dealing with a directive under the new postmaster general that is not seeking to improve the delivery performance. Timmy Patrick is an election male expert for the Democracy fund. She says to Joy's recent changes to how the postal services run will make mail delivery slower at a time when it needs to speed up When you eliminate over time when you change the work ethos of an entire organization that is get the mail through To leave it behind. It's going to cause problems to joy made his changes after the on time delivery data was collected for the last quarter, leading Patrick to suspect It's even worse now. Individual postal carriers and a union leader representing postal workers also say the changes, air leading toe upheaval and significant delays across the country. Elections officials are urging voters to hand deliver their balance to a drop box or elections office if it's close to election Day. Still, some voting rights advocates say that doesn't go far enough. Allison Riggs leads the voting rights program at the Southern Coalition for Social Justice in North Carolina. She says. North Carolina doesn't have a lot of experience handling mail ballots. Couple that with mail delivery worries and rig says it's better to vote in person were suddenly talking about potentially hundreds of thousands of new things to be in the mail. Back in Wisconsin, ELISA Werner says she'll again request a ballot be mailed to her for the November election. But she won't return it by mail.

Transition with primary teachers learning from seconds you teach vice versa, but also I since that day I've never been in a presence and that was. We know twelve fifteen years ago. Something it's scary, isn't it? Is and then especially if you think I'm wrong, so peoples who guy from prison they do, come back into mainstream booth, and I think as teachers. We need to know where that come from because different this is. About catching the. The different environments require different behavioral votes, and if we don't know what the rules are, it might come across. Behaved, but in fact, which is which is work into a different set rules.

"Hello. Mr Barton Lots podcast with me. Craig, Lowndes! Now just like with the Robert Kaplinsky episode I felt the need to record an introduction before the actual introduction to this podcast that I originally recorded. You see hopefully you're about to enjoy a conversation with the absolutely wonderful Mark Healey, but we recorded this before school closures before lockdown, and to be honest with you before I was aware of the severity of the cove in one thousand nine outbreak. So when you listen to this interview I'm pretty sure we zero reference to it whatsoever. Indeed I'm speaking tomorrow while see Satam any school office at the. The end of a busy school day, which we sounds like it a different world so I just wanted to once again. Just put this episode into context. If you think it's a bit weird that we don't mention anything whatsoever about school closures teaching from home, online, learning and stuff. That's the reason why hopefully provide a nice little wanted out because that's as ever all dominating the news at the moment. I just wanted to use this introduction. Just imagine a couple of other things. If if that's all right as well, I'm regular podcast. Listeners may have noticed as been a slight decrease in the frequency of episodes that I've been putting out over the last four weeks or so. There's been two reasons for that. Firstly, If you check out my teaching from home, series of I went be crazy. In terms of the number of episodes, there are put eleven out in the space of about three weeks. I'm not took a toll. It took on me mentally, but also my podcast hosting cloud, which I kind of blew it for for the foreseeable future. Books what I wanted to say is if you haven't listened to those teaching from home episodes, or if you thought yourself well, actually that context isn't isn't the same for me because I I don't teach for example, an independent school or in an estate school depending on where the guest was from. I've recommend. If you've got a bit of spare time, you look into something to listen to just go back and check some of those episodes out, because even though the focus is on teaching from home, we talk about so much more than some wonderful insights just on pedagogy in general. LA managing world load and I got to speak to guests who I've. I've been wanting to speak to for a while I just a really good example of this I wanted us on the show for ages to talk to her about his special Essien at specialism, and of course we spoke about the challenges of teaching students with with Special Educational Needs in this challenging time that we currently find ourselves in, but also we talk more in general, and about that once won't students go back to school? And it was a real iot for me so adequately if you look at if you looking for a bit more of my annoying voice, which very few people go back and have a look at those teaching from home and. And just just read of the show descriptions because I tried to point out the different opinions that that we go down, so that's one reason. There's been a bit of a break in recording of the podcast. The other reason is you may have noticed that I've been doing some online courses. I'm I'm really getting into these now. At basically at this time of year. When I'm recording this intro June I should be in the midst of conference season and my calendar does always fully bolts. Kind of the end may throughout Judah into the stocks of July because once exam start to finish. Schools are able to get together with Cova work implications conferences in set days and so. So, but of course those have been canceled so I've had lots of requests from schools about. Is there anything I can do about that? And I think as I mentioned at the start. The Robert Complaints episode I didn't want to go down the line of live webinars. Because for me, they're almost like a pool version of in person events because you get technical difficulties yet. No. From the audience it's it's a very positive way. 'cause potential to be a positive experience I believe anyway whereas what I've tried to. These online courses is make an advantageous thing so not trying to replicate what I'm doing in person, but in humps it. So what are those of you who look at these online courses will know that for example in the in the intelligent practice this one hundred videos, a hundred short videos that each one key point or setup and exercise or something like that see you watch the video, and then there's something to do either linked to research a link to an activity linked to another website, and then there's. There's something to reflect on, and then you watch another video, so what what I try do these online courses is do things. That I simply can't do in person, and that's certainly go into more depth. These and these were based on my original one day workshops bought. There is not a chance of able to fit this kind of stuff until one day workshop because I've been able to go. Deep and go into areas that I i. simply don't have time to do when I. AM impediments, but also this am the the full not means it's really flexible. Flexible. Fifth US teaches to watch in your own time at anytime that you want in short chunks. If you want five minutes here ten minutes there I'm equal. Watch them obviously wherever you want at the current time. That may be home, but hopefully in the future it may be I'm. Doing it together with a? At ICAN revisit the videos as many times as you want, you will have access to these that these calls materials forever so hopefully it's. It's doing something better than I will be able to do 'em on the in person events now obviously miss out on the collaboration, certainly at this particular moment in time, the something special about how? Twenty Teachers Fifty Teachers, a hundred teachers together on on people round tables, discussing things arguing things, but you can replicate that while schools are closed, you can do that. Just setup permits zoom. Call our chats on or something like that, and hopefully once things go back to some kind of normality fem taking the course. Another teacher, you can get together whenever you've reached a certain point and discuss it and so so yeah. I'm I'm quite happy how they've come out of her mother. sino-us sums dead Cocky, but if young chunks at the time of recording, there were five of because is a live thoughts on what's examples? Making the most problem solving. Retrieval intelligent practice informative formative assessments also have released a load of free material as well in particular, my full topic in depth sessions that I've done with the wonderful Joe Morgan. I'll put a link to how to get to these in the show notes at, but the address. If you want to get that straight away now is crate dot Barton at podium. That's Pete od I A. Dot Com and you can access all those materials laugh. So I got two weeks of recording those to do I WANNA put out I. Want to get up to seven kind of big chunky courses and a few more free ones are the ones that periods of at my focus will return in terms of my spare time to the more podcast episodes. I'm also going to do a maths. At conference take special with Joe Morgan and.

"Box now in will I for the Mr Martin must podcast. You're listening to an intro to the intro to the episode you see what is coming up is my interview with. Us Math educationalist on in my is complete legend. Mr Robert Kaplinsky. It is one of my favorite episodes book. I just wanted to take this opportunity to share three things with you. I provide a bit of context around the episode. Secondly I want to offer a sincere would've thanks. And thirdly an announcement from me so let's start with some context. I record the interview with Robert on the third of March. Twenty twenty. And I'm recording this intro. To The intro on the twenty second of May Twenty twenty now in the space of those two and a half months obviously the world has completely changed so I just wanted to point out the one. I'm speaking to Robert. Were certainly aware of the COVID. Nineteen outbreak but over here in the UK. Schools are still open lockdown as yet begun and I say it feels like a completely different time however having listened to the episode we I still think it's completely relevant particularly the bits when we start to talk about online CPA. Because as I say we're very aware something come in. We have no way of knowing the severity of the impact is going to have but towards the end of the conversation when we get onto. Cpa and the changing nature of. That's it's fascinating to listen back to it with what we know now so as I say I just wanted to provide a little bit of context about when the episode was recorded. Just in case you think. He's a bit weird that we're not cer- talking all about school closures and all that we seems to dominate single conversation that I have with anybody these days and secondly would've thanks. Many may not be aware of this but I know some people he listened to this. Follow me on twitter. And so on 'em I've been struggling a little bit of light. You may have heard this. Actually come out recordings. I did a teaching from home series where I recorded. Eleven episodes of a relatively short space of time. It's trying to support to teaches. I'm who struggling during the school closures to provide ideas resources inspiration and so on from all the teachers who are dealing with similar situations What I didn't realize during the record and if those is the how his really really struggling myself it's hard. I'm in a situation. That's familiar to many many many people out there. And that's a little boy. Isaac is home now. Obviously nurseries closed my wife's a key work with the NHS so am well having well having to do a lot of child. Cath and I'm entirely honest. Particularly good at it turns out turns out that I seem to specialize it in terms of childcare and the kind of Cameo appearances. I'm away a lot normally during the week. Doing some workshops in visiting schools and my wife does an incredible job known that while God Almighty I don't know how she does it so now pull lies with me theft and much of the day and yet. I'm finding it hard. I felt that I'm failing as a father. I fell time failing at my job because I can't split my time between both whenever I'm looking after Isaac. I'm thinking about will the emails at all the stuff I need to do whenever I'm working. I'm thinking I've only got this. Forty five minute period to work. And then I've got to look after Isaac and so on and and I'm feeling failing as a husband as well and I never felt this way before so yeah. I just wanted to just explain that situation. That's that's why you haven't heard and podcasts. For a few weeks and also came on twitter fit for a couple of weeks and so I just wanted to explain the situation and also if anybody else's feeling in a similar way he's we at times and I just wanted to throw it out that that you're not alone as I say this is been on precedence. His I've never felt anything like this before. It's come as a shock but also I just wants to offer my sincere find some. I put out on twitter that I was struggling. Not An genuinely. I didn't put it out that to get any sympathy or anything like that. My sole reason was to just explain to people why they will be hearing from me for a while but also as I say just in case of the people feeling something similar and could relate to what I what I was feeling but I've got so many so many messages of support. It's been really really torching. An Ombudsman fascinating is a lot of those messages. Have come from for men at men who are feeling in a in a similar way props and it's a sign of the Times really am men who perhaps haven't done as much of the child care responsibilities as as they would have done in the past and found this a real shock and struggling meets it to juggle both trying to be a good father to be a good worker and so on and so forth and so I just wanted to say thank you. I've read every single one of your messages and they've they've meant the world to me. I'm not feeling loads better. Now Solo sleep integrate. Isaac hasn't quite mastered the art of sleep. Hopefully he will be but yet. Just just just thank you. It was a very hard time very weird time and nothing compatible. Some of the things other people going through but I just wanted to say thank you and the final thing before I shall talk station talk because actually going to hear from me again voice from the past bucket march through my do. My intro is just an announcement. I do a lot of talks. I lot of workshops conferences. I obviously how to load book to enter to go through to the end of the academic year apple. They've all been canceled. Obviously because because of school closures and social distancing and so on so I've had lots of requests from from teachers and the organizers of these conferences whether I could do anything about that and there was talk of like live webinars people log in and so on bought the difficulty with things like that is often you get issues with technology people logging in at the same time and then people can't connect and all that kind of thing so what. I've done instead. I'm something I've been wanting to ages and it's really strange. Actually this ties in perfectly with this episode with Robert. Because we talk loads about online. Cpa At the end of conversation is I am in the process of making online versions of my five most popular workshops at two of these alive. Now that's making the most of worked examples and formative assessments in diagnostic questions. And the three will be live in the next couple of weeks and depending when you listen to this if you listen to this at some point in June they may well all be live now and now. I was a bit of an online workshops skeptic when I started the preparation for doing these but having signed to a load of online courses to get feel why I liked what I didn't like and then tried to put my own unique spin on this. I'm absolutely loving doing it. So if we take for example the formative assessment diagnostic questions workshop. That consists of eighty videos at the making. The what's example. One consists of sixty videos so I can record short short videos. Maybe three minutes five minutes seven videos where I'm able to make a key point in that video or Sharon idea and then you can just pulls the video before moving onto the next one reflects on that idea. I'm what I'm also able to do is link to the research that I sites and in the initial video a podcast. I mentioned any resource. I mentioned so you can go off and investigate that and then you can come back when you're ready to watch the next video and of course what you can also do. Is you can watch these videos as many times as you like. So unlike Atai live face to face events. Where if you fail to hear at understand something because my dodging all the accents and you wish our she said that again or misled. You can go back and watch these videos as many times as you like so. Obviously it's doesn't quite replicates the face to face experience the thing that's particularly lacking is collaboration surround on a table discussing and arguing with with with colleagues. There's ways to replicate that You can take the course alongside someone else in setup zoom meetings or what's up calls and so on and so forth but the more I do these at causes and the more I take 'em all the peoples courses the more I realized that they're actually Lowe's advantages to these and not least of which obviously in this current time is the fact that you can take this course at time and a place that he spoke siphoned and convenient for you. I'm so I'll put a link to these courses in the show of pages and I've tried to keep the cost as absolutely as low as possible and it's a fraction of what it would cost to attend a normal at day calls and hopefully you'll agree with me that the so much more in the so. I'm as I just wanted to just mention those three things at bit of context about this episode that was recorded back at the start of March a sincere way to find and then I just wanted to make that announcement about my online courses at just in case you find them useful. Oh I should say by the way the next three courses that are on my four ingredients of retrieval at the time of recording. I'm midway three advocating. Lots going really. Well and my four ingredients problem Sullivan. And then the final big cost. I'll put out for now. He's going to be intelligent practiced. I've also put out some free courses. I've taken my topics in depth series that I recorded we Joe Morgan and I'm in the process of making that into the short video. So you can dip in whenever you want. The first one of those is live as well. Anyway as a sign up put links to that in the show notes rights at let me show talk then and let me over to Craig Barton speaking back at the start of March twenty. This was Craig who was blissfully unaware of the incoming crisis both personally and globally so therefore still did those crazy. I'm hello introductions doesn't feel quite right to do them anymore Mabel combat. We'll see anyway. Thanks for listening to this bits. I really hope you enjoyed the episode and above all I hope you and your families are safe in a bit. Hello tweet another episode of the missed the baton months podcast with.
Should States Be Allowed To Declare Bankruptcy?
"Many states are facing severe financial shortfalls because of the corona virus outbreak several Republican leaders in Congress including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell have suggested those states declare bankruptcy but federal law prevents states from doing that Kentucky public radio's Ryland Barton reports that McConnell's cash strapped home state is especially vulnerable Kentucky was struggling before the corona virus it's entered years of escalating budget cuts that go back to the two thousand eight financial collapse and now almost a third of the state's workforce has filed for unemployment this is led to a massive drop in income and sales tax collections which make up more than three quarters of the money Kentucky brings in every year democratic governor Andy Beshear is one of many governors who say they need more financial help from the federal government during the pandemic if the next Kerr sacked package does not include budget assistant for states and counties we will be hit with a rough for recession it will last longer and it will be harder to dig out of Kentucky senior senator Mitch McConnell doesn't support adding more money to prop up state budgets at least not without changes changes like letting states filed for bankruptcy here's McConnell on the Hugh Hewitt show recently I would sort of imply rollout that is the is the bankruptcy route if you save some settings and there's no good reason for it not to be available but cities counties even school districts are allowed to file for bankruptcy just not states that has always been the case for the entire history of the United States that's northern Kentucky university law professor ten captain he says Congress could pass a law allowing states to file for bankruptcy but then states would have to pass their own laws allowing it and then it would likely be challenged for violating the constitution's contract clause the main reason is that because there is so that states shouldn't be able to pass laws to relieve themselves of their own death orderlies the deaths of private debtors bankruptcy will allow a court to restructure a state's finances the biggest example of a city declaring bankruptcy was Detroit in two thousand thirteen as part of that process the court required city retirees to take a four and a half percent benefits cut and give up cost of living adjustments university of Pennsylvania law professor David Skeel says states should be allowed to declare bankruptcy he says it would allow sacrifices to be distributed more evenly absent bankruptcy who is the ticket yeah yep there's financial distrust of the state yes beneficiaries of state services president trump has weighed in on Twitter asking why should taxpayers bail out quote poorly run states like Illinois the couple has since softened his suggestion that states be allowed to declare bankruptcy saying it would have been optional and most wouldn't have done it anyway but with so many states struggling it's still an issue capturing attention from state houses to Capitol

The video the Tas- hopefully sometime after Easter fingers crossed. So Quinn not brings those two period three went to plus you. I went to Joe. Varick session on maximizing effectiveness of examples. So is Toronto. Things that I've thought about Lada knows and Joe trails. A lot of it was inspired by reading your first book as well. We should say Joe is what he's like in second year just finished as I know this is where the nineteen ninety seven thing comes from while he's so I would. I think the thing I mean you. You probably like in your second year teaching doing some pre sophisticated thing. The other stuff that was beginning to come out came out around the time. Like teach like a champion. I read at the end of my peeves. My mind with its up time. It was like still like nobody really knew what this book was was unheard of and stuff. I think there's Barton maths resources websites and thus like easing things on your website member this one whereas like you have a mind. Mapping the kids approximate misstep long. Now that I enjoyed does that was that she had to be able to remember things. Released checking the remembering. They were doing so. I've never really liked that. But that's the beginning of a member of my colleagues theorize about how to get kids to remember suffered a feeling re things talk about. Excuse beginning to bubble up and that would have been around twenty ten twenty seven twenty twelve. Things are so different now. There's lots of really great stuff in the ATM. Which is around how to make things richer and more interesting than that of the existed for years and they've always been wonderful at that but how to get kids to remember stuff that kind of thing or how to build inefficiency. That kind of thing was reading. It was sort of on top and so does it mean from what the pressure vote got. Today's Joseph's been thinking about that. Very deeply seems extremely hard working Which has just how much he's consumed and thought about and tried and rigorously explored his classes. And it did make me He wasn't saying that the way the sounds but he's saying he read your book. Thought this answer to all my problems and then I realize no really lovely is where he spent more time and some of the stuff. Linda summarize quickly because he was then he's spent time at the end explaining how he'd tracked different classes and things he tried and he's trying to do control and stuff and I mean that's all cut to the chase and that he was satisfied the what he's trying to classes that all things being equal as they can possibly be we'll have enough impact Rambam. Their confidence is so on some saying that bit now to say why I think it also. I think chose is interesting. So He's trying to do is talk about things like look at things. Like example problem pairs look things like reflect. Expect I think. How can those things put together? So He's trying to do is instead of just worked examples. How supercharged works? Plus where he'd say he'd have the example that be the question that kids are going to do but actually the three and there's a middle Columbus reflection which is I mean. He made us some quicker examples. First SCIENTISTS ON HIT LOT PAUSES. Sabz teacher being get to one that you explore much more deeply that you're affecting on what method we use. Why did we pick that method? And you recording those reflections. Salsa he was showing it with animations because he had the big heels the other big screening how to just click. We saying he'd always have it. Be Blind and that other than the questions so they can see being annotated together that govern the gathering those reflections record in them before they go onto the example themselves. Those a really nice way of marine the idea of a strong bond example problem hair but also strong about reflecting and expecting and it also allows them to instead of 'cause he's talking about one of the weaknesses with example pairs as children mimicking a method for the not learning to memorize or not even more memorize to internalize the reflections on the noticing the attending and just even kind of the emotional journey of like. I don't know what to do. Oh try this is okay. Try this all. I know. It's okay to try this that kind of thing news recording that together also like his way to those reflections monitoring and I thought that was really interesting so see something like Example Problem Perez can feel very cold. Because if you're trying to be efficient you trying to get into have high success really fast but can feel like you're manufacturing success mean it's better than we talked before about. You can manufacturers officials success by making things easier than an observer might realize but evenings Compare can do that really well but actually can feel a bit cold but bringing in this reflection stage happening in the middle means that you're also showing how much what they think matters and how they're engaging with it really matters so I thought that was really powerful. Both for the pedagogy of generalizing Basher but also their thought process monitoring and even going right on the board. This is what show said. This is Craig said showing how powerfully their reflections matter to you and to the whole classes and other guys like all of us. What Joe Said? Oh He is Craig to help me tackle this on those levels. He's good for differentiation. As if you've got a kid who can do the example problem powerpoint the waste of the time but if they're thinking hard about reflections even thinking about thinking how much we talked in saint how much the class of two feel like their community with obligations to each other that is creation the kid by E C. It's fantastic. I'm so glad you gotTa want you to think about is what's the thing you notice because I'll see bright kids you'll say you know what I mean kids Marzi. You'll say how do you know they'll say brain told me which is true? The rain did just helped him because they're able to compress let's accepts. That chunk is chunking really effectively. Which brilliant but actually need failed to unpick it the same way that we become more fluent through been forced to unpick his teachers. Giving THEM A clarity. 'cause CENTRAL SAY. Oh if you teach someone else you'll be better at it. But a lot of time with their teaching to their partners so open ended or they're really just telling their partner what to do but it was in the refresh stage where it's not at all about the numbers involved. The calculation voltage. Just how did you know that is forcing them to be much more reflective as well as their Meta learning wishes essence of your obligations now or to the whole class and for them to get their brains?

The Basque Carnivals
"Let's start with a look at the Mardi Gras and Carnival celebrations going on in Basque country. The customs and street parties will vary from town to town one of the oldest cultures in Europe. The Basques include some interesting public festivities in the days leading up to the fasting period of length traditions. That sometimes go back further than anyone can remember for a peek at how they do carnival in Basque country. We're joined by Claire Noah. She's from Hess Barron in the French Basque country and a Gustin lives in San Sebastian. On the Spanish side of the border. Welcome Claire and Augustine. Thank you very much so first of all. You're both from best country. Claire who are the Basques just very briefly and the basket is one of the oldest civilization in Europe and we are divided on those two parts one in France in another Barton Spain and Augustine. Those the language of Basque people yes. We speak Basque language which we call Skater. Who Scatter I WANNA talk about. Carnival carnival basically is the blow out before lent that leads up to Holy Week and Easter. It goes way back to even pre Christian Times on trying to get through the winter and there's a hope for resurrection for new crops in the fields for the end of the hunger time and the darkest depths of winter. I think the meat was going to go bad. And they had to eat it. All or something or carnival. Carney is the word meat and that led up to forty days of denial lent and then Easter so we know Mardi Gras in New Orleans. That's basically fat Tuesday in French. And IT'S CARNIVAL TIME RIGHT. Turn tell me about carnival. Because it's a big deal in Basque country. A Gustin what is carnival in your perspective. As a person in Basque country we have to waste of Celebrating carnival the more more than Christian celebrations. There are more popular on the Spanish side on the more traditional Pagan celebrations. That you can find in the past country of France. The difference is the recent history. I mean this pagan celebrations were banned by the dictator Franco for thirty five years He banned the use of the language and all kind of Celebrations related to pass or and this was banned. Sue was probably lost the in that time. So let me get this straight. You've got Basque culture. Which is a lot of ways? The same in France and in Spain but carnival is a mix of Christian and pagan traditions. And when you see these crazy creatures jumping up and down in Europe in many cultures it's pre Christian and it's a way to integrate the the indigenous religion in ancient times with the Christian. The newer religion and Franco was allied very carefully with the Catholic Church in Spain. He didn't want any pagan influence in the Spanish Basque country so he said this is a Christian festival none of that Pagan stuff but in France they were more free to have let loose with the pagan craziness. Correct correct Franco considered himself the highest representation of the Catholic Church and turn the country into a religious state Now clear I would imagine in France. Then you have some pretty wild costumes when people dress up during carnival especially where the Pagans go crazy in the French side of the border. What is the carnival? Can you just were on radio but paint a picture for look like for me? It's colorful with many natural things so we will have flowers leaves and we will have ribbons. We will have a chilling chuck which is a small bells everywhere. So you have to hear the carnival and you have to say it's an explosion. Okay of joy. It's just a moment where you go out from last year and everything that went wrong and you wish something really good for the next one so you just have to explodes yourself and just let it go. Go out with your animal part of you. Let your animal free and you're inside and we all have this side in so we have just. This is the perfect moment just to and then you start again so you dress up. There's music there's staying up all night. What's going on in different places? You've got different carnivals into French part of the Basque country three provinces for example Nepali which is really famous. You've got cash Celtic. So those people are going from house to house every weekend before carnival low even after they go to each house. They had get to know the neighborhood. So it's kind of ritual and they'll go to every house they sing. They play music. They DANCE. They share several cups of wine. And then it's a big party the tired but it's it's really nice. This is so interesting because I've been going to the best country for a long time and I have to be honest. I feel there's more character and enthusiasm in Spain because the French Basques are more French to me. More controlled by Peres but here on carnival. You let that ask animal that when you hear Claire. Talking about that from the Spanish Basque side on Carnival do you relate to have an animal you're gonNA lose all And fortunately now we have just a couple of little towns in the north of Navarro which are having the celebration in which the these men are carrying big belts that are bouncing and making big noise. Dig Like cowbells accounting. Yes huge cultures. A lot of this You know animal caretaking in the Malki. As the purpose of it is to wake the nature awake. The youth. Springtime is communist very much related to the end of winter. Welcome in the New Year and also we can in the nature and the spring is coming. So he's very much really. That's something you can see in two different towns in the north of Pamplona Navarre and also a couple of towns in the area outside San Sebastian. When I think of eastern Spain anyways I think of processions solemn processions like in savvy and so on some Amazon Too Holy Week Carnival feels a little more. Just apart and in. Holy Week is more sacred. Yes especially in the spiny side. You'RE GONNA see is big. Parades like you'd like him to turn off taller than most popular. One people go from all the areas. Go and see this parade. Our guest from Basque country are Agustin Cerita from San Sebastian Spain and Claire. Moya from aspirin a little town outside zone in the southwest corner of France.

"Me CREPE Barton a show ain't view people from the wonderful world of education who interest and inspire me now twelve twelve months ago. I did an experimental episode of the podcast where I asked a whole host of my favorite people one question. What did you learn this year now? That slice of advice episode proved very popular and I sort the crowd of demanded more so never wishing to deprive my public. I've got the bound back together again to answer yep the exact same question. What did you learn this year well if it ain't broke now just before we dive into the episode itself? I need to say something very important. I invited twenty females to contribute to this episode but unfortunately for a wide variety of reasons only eight of chosen to do so now. This is a real shame as it means. We actually have a really male dominated roster of guests. Female representation is something that Joe Morgan and I have discussed at length and something I tried to tackle in the main episodes of the show. I'm I'm aware it's a huge issue and I know that an episode like this does not help problem is I'm not sure what the solution is and I did think really hard about scrapping this episode but I just WanNa make you my dear listeners know that I am aware of the problem and I'm try my best to think solution anyway. I really hope that does not diminish your enjoyment of what really is a golden nugget filled episode of the podcast where you will hear from household names and those perhaps not so I'm familiar as they reflect a they have learned personally in the last twelve months.

My hope is that these reflections do for you exactly what they did for me 'cause you to the polls and reflects both on things that went well and did not go so well this year and give you some food for thought an inspiration going forward you can find the running order of the contributions in the show notes which might make navigating back-and-forth diabetes as well as the twitter humbles the gas so you can follow them.

You know, this is absolutely lovely woman as you're talking, ninety five percents of fully concentrate on the word. You'll say five percent of me, I call way to check into this task myself absolutely ideal. But yeah, you're right. It's I think this is certainly the kind of toss, you could just buying up on the board and see what happens for the first few minutes. But then be prepared for the kid who say's.

'cause you'll have that foster, if ain't to Kimball your come up with him relatively easily, but by the fault, one o'clock, good tweet, which is going to challenge is she said that getting a couple of spots already say that this, this is something I've been I've been playing recently with with regard to again, whether it's the variations. Well, yeah, let's talk specifically about this. But with, with my kind of series of very, very sequences of questions or intelligent, propsal, mentally, different, whatever you want to call them, and what I used to do is, I would I would say to students, something along the lines of how would you explain the connection between question? Six question seven to somebody who didn't understand it yet. And that was fun. But everybody, everybody can explain while most people can explain it while I'm way. But it's the way they thought thought about themselves and. And it doesn't prompt that which deep four, but as soon as you tweet that to say, how do you explain the connection between question six and seven in two different ways than the kind of extra thought comes through because you I way gets you saw that outlets just the way you did it. But what is it that way? What, what she second way? What's, what's the way that your gonna then Kamari, if the first way doesn't hit home with the person you're trying to explain it to? And I think I think is similar to what you're saying. They're in the sense that a soon as we challenge ourselves, whether we're teaches all we challenge, the kids, not just to think of one additional thing or to additional things. It's the more additional things we think of the more the deep, we have to think about them, if it does that make sense at all as a Perfil in Kim. This feature Japanese teach in is that way by the medic. The potential for problem is you're not deliberately try wolf Tienjin again. Is. Problem this deficit solutions, and these Rochet, but then teachable acid people's to do again, early problem doing some of the is, we do do it using so many may and by doing that you're INCE in fresh and say into in desolate, what you had this, absolute kin method is no can't Saint relatively tears coming up if he gives me, you say, give me your ideas, and not that Qena. You say never the pupil explain it when we didn't explain it. I'm quite a fine of. Probably one ship will be doing the same problem, but didn't free or four ways can be can be clear cram interest in the door on was teaching history late to class just before Christmas tons of stuff about it. But what I hadn't done restore them, how you feigned. And. I hadn't formally sold them. How can you then if I if a point lies on the lane, so obviously either doing? Many if for the. What are we start with by because they had, they had of teaching they've been told alive stuff, anybody that stage. But what, what did they come up with such a vast range of strategies? So many kids created a table values. And so as the point was on the table use of people's made an accurate Gordon two point drew the lane accurately. Of people's use a cane arrhythmia outraged approach another pupil. Plotted the point. And then you say, okay, I'm going to stay by using the gradient rivers. So grading his fire from going to go Dougie five and one. And if I keep doing this what's going to happen is I'm gonna lined at this, why say of this equation, if not Haas's, this original point wise in the late and it was a whole host of stuff like that. So that amazing and Sates because they've been much and this wasn't in the in the next to the I'm not spending new enough to do it. And they what the fall tonight as okay, ka legal individually to problem using some of the way to freer of people and it was seven. I'm sure into threat. Boy, women who knees. I'm thinking. Behind it, but. And the struggle to use each other's methods. That was that was thing that came out. What was yours stuff mayfield's acid? Most of them could mitigate the hairdryer to free of the foot, that's interest them, sufficient, and then you any over by something, which is a lane of quietly. Why was it could only see? Many to three or four weeks is mobile seven ways and yes or adequately. See more than one way. I don't know. Awesome. Just before we move on from these tusk, Chris, well, one thing that, that I struggle with is kids, get in the most of them in terms of the discussions that they have between them and the discussions that they have with me as teacher because there's a dangerous that if we just put jet one of these tussle, or how many of these tasks out, and the, the kids don't get as much out of, as they could do, if they sit in that kind of silently kraken on with it on their own. So I wonder how do we get the kids better, discussing things between them, and how do we as teachers get better at illicit in these discussions, either between the students between the kids, and, and also as teachers, if any not make sense at all? Yes, probably the most important books gonna mention us as big three and a as make ask you transforming primary mathematics. At any economic read this as prime recalling because what in Macy's to Ed on mass teacher. And he's a lovely. On when talk one of the things he talks about Israel. The distinction between discussion and dialogue. And. Not the moment to pupils what we do teach officer get into a Finnish, man answers, even atop of his possibly less than the f the actually they're just not causing a riot. The may thing maybe even a whole class discussion some things that just a back and forth. Yes. So what we can't what you said was what people's to be with. You react in different. Each of us may is nothing kid. So what we need to do for civil is teaching him. Potent less negative -ly not idea of threw up an and being silent. And but that one isn't lesson. So. Moment, few techniques, but an important thing is just one between dialogue and discussion and dialogue. Basically means coming to coming to knowledge and electorally means through dialogue. So coming knows no income, basically, for the back and forth exchange of ideas. It's not seen I know and I'm trying to get you to this. It's actually to give by Scott into gave your building understanding, right? Which is definite from discussion kiss discussions of thing. That's possession is the one to try when is trying impose fear. If this think shin now there's some things have discussion as feature at may be discussion. We may be less, but dialogue Bill is teachers have dialogue Lennon, Tunstall continued your snow an you.

Chris is a wonderful user of Twitter in the way that he pulls in loads of different views on his ideas from a wide range of practitioners. I really need to learn more from the way. Chris uses Twitter, a light me on the gum, something of a transformation in his teaching and thinking about learning, but fascinating -ly. We seem to have gone off in slightly different directions which hopefully make for a fiery interesting conversation. So it a wide ranging, challenging fascinating chart. Chris, and I discussed the following things and plenty more besides Christie scribes his favourite failure, and tells me what do learned from the experience. Chris gives us gives an overview sorry into how his approach to teaching has changed, and just why this changes happened. And then we go deep, we go really deep into task design with Christy scrubbing how approach to both creating and also choosing an adaption existing tasks has changed. Chris then takes us through three of his favorite mathematical tusks describing. Why likes them and how he uses them and images of. These tasks are available now in the show notes, so you can play along hope we then turn our attention to the importance of classroom talk. And how is teaches we can help. Australians, get better are conversing on that it all kicks off. And we love it when it kicks off when we discuss a few things that we may well, disagree on, including old time, podcast classics atomization, and minimally, different problems. Now, I love this conversation. Find it absolutely fascinating when I'm looking to speak to someone who's been teaching roughly the same time as me and even better, went that somebody is on the Ghana similar journey in terms of that initial ignorance of educational research. And now a bit of a revolutionist happened. But when it comes to Chris, and I, we've got off in slightly, different directions, reaching slightly different conclusions, and I'll be reflecting on these differences in the takeaway section. At the end of this episode the usual plugs before we get cracking.

"Eighty people who interest, I'm inspired me from the wonderful world of education, this time around I spoke to Michael Persian. Now, Michael may well be named. It's not overly familiar with, with you carelessness in particular, but that needs to change. Michael is a teacher of mathematics in New York City. Yes, we are going logo with this episode of the Mr Barton maths podcast. Although budget restrictions of meant that I still record in my end of the conversation in the city that always sleeps, although is known as Blackbird Michael is one of my all time. Favorite bloggers is the crater of the wom- fall rush lex freshens math mistakes, and teaching with problems. I am always inspired and challenged by Michael's writing, and of wanting to get him on the show for absolutely ages. And I'm absolutely delighted to report. That it was well worth the wait. This is an absolute belter of an episode. So in a wide ranging, challenging fascinating conversation. Michael discuss the following things, and plenty more. Besides just why he's changing school so hard and what role does the expectation of students play and then for the remainder of the first half of the conversation after successfully, overcoming, our mutual language barrier? Michael describes his process for planning a sequence of lessons, on subtraction, and it is fascinating stuff. But would just getting warmed up them. Because then comes the big bombshell, what the Michaels example problem has look like now spoiler alert. They are different to mine, which has got my head spinning then how soon into the process of introducing a concept would Michael include an incorrect example. How does Michael provide whole class feedback a Michael art? News that many problem solving strategies have descriptive, but not prescriptive validity. What exactly using mean by this now I'm gonna make a big claim here, and I know I'm always doing these trust me on this one. I think the second half of this conversation when we really dive into the nature and presentation of words examples is one of my favorites of all time, our reflect on this a much more besides in my take way at the end of the episode. But needless to say it's got me, thinking, really, really hard about my own approach just before we dig into the interview, the usual, plucks my book, how I wish I taught maths is still available from old.

What freedom? What job you like to? If you weren't involved in education. It would probably be football manager. So football fan. Big Everton fan are really love just how the job is so multidisciplinary. So it's got leadership coaching mentor in sports science tactics. You've got the research. You got to believe the big team. I really love how very is. That's how I enjoy working fantastic. The time of recording his vacancy at all traffic. Would you the raise out maybe build up to it? Before we think she create just just a question on twenty two ski. I'm kind of new to the structure that's only on coming home on the train, and that is like a musty to speak into an English teacher here. What is your view on numeracy across the curriculum? When you teaching was that something that you found easy to county get into lessons. Did it feel kind of bolted on what what would you take that as a kind of general policy? I think a little light literacy across the curriculum. It was always kind of a little bit tokenistic a little bit bolts on I I don't I wasn't a school where we actually emphasized numeracy across the curriculum. I think we always overemphasize literacy numeracy was the kinds of the poll, Paul little bravado. So I was never really was never an enforcement of doing any sorts of strategies. And yet the wasn't really even an indication of how it might meaningful be done. So I think yeah, skeptical I think Oviously if your science teacher your psychology teacher drugs teacher, it's much more meaningful. I just think you've got to be really really precise in of a really strong case if you're looking at numeracy and English, and you know, I think it's a little bit stretch. So you might note patterns in language. You know, you might dentist by so some indicate this I think it's not as meaningful. So so why do it if it's not if it's not really meaningful and helps the students, and they're understanding why do it? Yeah. I tend to agree in and just to kind of flip it round. Would that be the same them for literacy would would you as me as a mass teacher would would you not be expecting me to get involved in our or should it be partly my responsibility. So I think I think we have to be clear what me my lecture say. And I think is I think literacy across the curriculum or conducive more formally content with to say I've got shoes I've got his shoes with kind of blanket spelling approaches across schools. I've got issues with emphasis on marking. That's generic and bypasses subject domains. And yet when it gets the discipline disciplinary. Let's say I think this synthetic Mitch more useful much more specific. So if you look at the Cobb Yele, we'll. You know, you mediate the subjective maths to the language of mats, and it's not singularly vocabulary. It's symbols it's got equations etcetera book mathematical vocabulary is intrinsic to understand the subject. So for me, the calorie and disciplinary to say has value, but then not some generic forced literacy, and I think I think the same with numerous eight I think there's no disciplinary numeracy in geography, that's really valuable and really important. There's a disciplinary numeracy in science, and noting the differences between my buttocks and science, and and how they might go about graph work. And and we'll outcomes looking from and how they need to process can the problems differently is really important. So for me, I don't I dismiss elements of literacy as it's being conducted in the past. And yet, I think when we think about how mathematicians read uniquely and how they pursue legit when we. Think about the language mathematics being precise and clear them were onto something useful dummies perfect all of 'em. Well, before we dig into an interview bit further. I'll just take us to year career, Alex, just worried all started for you to to way, you ought today yet so taught for over fifteen years began teaching Huntington school in York, I was very very average on being polite to my younger self averaging t I did struggle back. I don't think hands a great training experience such rains in Bangor, north Wales. And I don't think I had the great experience for various reasons so of baptism afire. But I landed in school that had really good support has a really mixed cohort student. So you go from not chin A-level, you know, really highly academic students to know really young students with really different mix profiles. So it gave me a really broad, but supported view of teach in and I stick around base class days at Huntington and became a running joke. Kind of did every job possible. Huntington to the point where I was making jobs up at the end director of research, go at cetera, and then as I kind of pursued my career, I I went through the kind of typical check. Risk of middle leader than a moving scene lead ship by also began to write and and to look at it more outwards and that kind of took my career on. Completely different tangent. Relay. I was invited by Geoff Barton. He actually was head of English at one time at my school in the job. I took twenty years later. And he asked me to write a book for new English, teachers and really pleased to do that. I did that wall. I was head of department which was jiggle to politely, and then not start led to just lots of June tease. Externally got reading falls with trying to translate research evidence tried to, you know, look at cognitive science look at the wealth of research out there for teachers, but try and navigate away that made it useful to a broad audience. Teachers not just to condemn any sh-she more group, and that led me to taking on a lead role in the school where I bid for research school. We lead. I lead a research goal as director. I led a large projects a large enough project colorized project and then more recently began. To work on projects with primary schools and secondary schools to the point where last year at the opportunity to step out and worked the education foundation. And I took the opportunity it was. Really great opportunity to have a completely new fresh perspective work with lots and lots of schools continue my writing work, and my communicate with teachers so yet quite unique role of quite I've got quite law flexibility. But ultimately, I work with research goals are trying communicate top looks like medical mission literacy and for teachers help with writing garden Shaports in similar so so yeah. And if I've I went up the typical routes through school, but they're enough took a kind of a left turn which has been an eventful an interesting seep it what I'm what? Sure official title these days. What would they call you? It's it's brilliantly vague I and I'm a senior associate. So I do different things. It's kind of is a bit Blunkett title. So I work on. Trying to support the F to really mobilize our research show. It's really personal for teachers and try and develop the support tools that we have also also get multi-voice involved in our work. Look our projects and just bring that teacher perspective to what's huge amount of expertise on research in evaluation and project design excetera. So it feels a bit like a natural continuation of what I did writing, you know, intestine teach secondary and on my blog, but in in a way that I can be a more structured significant support for schools got it fantastic. Well, before we dive into your vote, which the main suggests this interview, I always ask guests to pick a favorite failure around. Now. This may be a lesson that you've taught in the past go, according to plan or something else in your career. But crucially, why did it go wrong? What? Did you learn from the experience? I've already mentioned my kinds of my bleak and UT year. And it was a lesson from and I can't really remember the detail of exactly why it went wrong. It's kind of it's kind of a gloomy kind of distortion setting. I was in one of our old kinds of huts. And it was a rainy Wednesday afternoon. Classify thirty two top set back in the day were we had sets in English. And in many ways, they were lovely group. They also knew how to play an entity. And I think I think that the really tough half, our weather, just wet listening, and I gave them a bit of an option where I said, right? Well, if you don't carrying working don't you can carry in talking or you can do this task. So really stupid thing to do. Because actually thirty one of the thirty two carries on talk. So I sat down. In the chair, and let them talk the lesson was wasted an hour was gone gladly. No one book day, nor can or any sort of survey Shen one student Natalie. She sat I think she just to share proximity. She felt bad for me real issue sitting right front Natalie carried on working. It was the last lesson of the day. And I think it was made. It was condemned midway through a really took I term, and I did have that kind of we'll carry on teaching moments that kind of moments in the shower were you can you're struggling with whether you go back in the next day. I did go back in the next day. I have them in the morning just before lunch carried three. And I remember speaking to the mall. I remember being rather annoyed and I kept them all back at lunchtime. It was a blanket attention on yet. This contentious reasons about Blunkett's tensions. I get that. But this one was recalled full. And let Natalie go to lunch and kept everyone back, and I spoke to them let them go. And I kind of had a moment to myself were kind of reasserted some sorts of control. Got some of my reputation back yet carried on her. And it feels like five crater a great teacher narrative alphabet, and it wasn't so dramatic. But for me that feels like a turning point. And why it's a really nice story is Natalie ended up becoming a teacher a self and came back into teach and she's a fantastic teacher. So I like to think about moment she made a little choice in my lesson that save me. A neighbor has a little knock-on effect that helped her to. If you ever have you ever discussed with her? Yeah. Yeah. I wrote about it in molest book confident teacher, and I showed I want to be happy in. And she was delighted she knew she thought. It was great. She didn't remember thing about lesser. She she she talks about I went onto teach all and she was the first unit. I taught you got full marks throughout the whole level so sh- so she focused on that. And I got this credit outs of that. But she doesn't remember that doc Lima lesson. She just become a mum this week as well. So congratulations the Elliott. Geez. Is interesting. I it's an interesting favor failure on. I'm sure I can certainly relate to I'm sure lots of listeners willies, it's kind of oment way, you think that you can give you this choice and they're going to see the error of the way realize. Just doesn't. Yes. Absolute naive. It's a good. All right. Okay. So we want to our attention to you most recent book closing copulate got now I'm gonna make a confession it. This is the thirst subject specific book. I've read the hasn't been about months of red plane ride kind of general and science books and education books, but not like, this is pure English.

"The. Hello. Sway? No, the reputation of the mist of often Matz podcast with me crepe Barton act show. Why ain't you people who interest and inspire me from the world of education? This time around I spoke to Alex quickly, I'll IX former English teacher and now senior associates at the education and downland foundation. He is also the author of one of my favorite books of any gene r- to be released over the last twelve months closing the calculator gap. Now as a must each I was more than a little hesitant going into the book with memories of failed attempts to shoehorn literacy across the curriculum into my mouth lessons. But the only was I pleasantly surprised to find out how relevant the book wants to me. I was simply blown away. And so I just had to get Alex on the show. And finally, he said, yes. So in a wide ranging conversation alexan-, I covered the following things. Plenty more besides I started out with the same questions. I asked David died out as any teacher. Watts Alex is view on numeracy and literacy across the curriculum in schools and also to what extension teachers of other subjects accept responsibility for literacy, especially those poor must each's, and then we get into the cab Yalies stuff. So why is increasing students vocabulary size so important? Is it just the size? That matters. All the words that comprise that the cabbie. Larry in other words, so words, simply more valuable than all this. Now, why my talk and discussion in the classroom not being off to improve all students vocabularies on what should we as teachers do? Instead how big a problem is the curse of knowledge. In terms of the words, teachers often casually us in explanations and answers that students might not understand why he's the strategy of looking into. A words entymology so powerful. What strategies can teach us to get the most out of it does Alex have any favorite examples of mass words and that an Tamala. Jeez. What is an example? An example of good whole school approach to improving students for calories, and I'll tell you are this is a flipping crock Scalise. What piece of research is most significantly influenced his thinking or is approach to teaching. And finally, what does Alex wish he'd known when he first started teaching that he knows now. Now, I loved both reading books and talking to the money himself as I said earlier, I think the so much golden here for both a mass teach you like myself or indeed of any teacher of any subject both primary and secondary in my take away at the end of the episode. I'll die the into exactly how my practice as changed as a direct result of reading his book and speaking to Alex. On this podcast now too quick plugs before we crack on obviously, if you buy one book as a result of this episode, make it closing the gap. But if you're interested in reading about twelve years of mass teaching mistakes, the maybe take a chance on my book. How I wish I taught maths available from all good and all evil bookstores, and if you've read the book, and you've got time to give it a quick review that will be ideal songs.

I spoke to Gemma show would gem is head of Massa Hebert high school and six phone in Worcestershire. He's a governor at a primary school and professional development league for the NC ET eme gem is also the creator of one of my favourite, educational blocks. Gem maths dot WordPress dot com, and as the author of the Excellent How to enhance your math, subject, knowledge, publish by UP. Now, this is actually is second appearance on the podcast as she was my co host for the conference takeaways podcast from research had ruby in twenty eight hundred and after that performance the public demanded more. But of course, we didn't get round to talking about Gemma's. Excellent book how she rooms mass department or anything like that. Because. Juice slight Donnie Quinn, Chris Bolton and Wien risky before her. This conversation centered around one key question. How does Jemma plant a lesson? A what's again, just like all previous guests have answer is flipping fascinating. But fear, not everyone Jemma will return to this podcast in the near future. So I can get through the other ninety two percent of questions. I have in particular. I wanna dig into book and also about her running math department, so in what out the wide ranging conversation. We chatted about the following things. I'm plenty more. Besides what's gems favourite failure? And what did she learn from the experience, and then we dive deep into is planning process for a sequence of lessons. What does it look like where does she write it down where do the resources come from what happens in the lesson? It's all that as well as numerous fascinating tons along the way and then to finish. How is Jim is views. On silence in lessons changed over the years. Now, I absolutely adored this conversation. I've long been a massive fan of gems work. And I haven't had a ball co hosting the conference take way podcast from research at ruby with her. I could not wait together on the show, and she did not disappoint now podcast listeners. Unlike into a little secret Jemma was a little reluctant to call on the show as she did not think she could offer listeners anything that other guess had not I know we will all benefit from the fought that she changed her mind, so very quick plugs. Before we crack him there are twenty free. Diagnostic math revision quizzes Fakih, sage two sites. Jesus foundation and Jesus e higher available at diagnostic questions dot com forward slash revision.

And that's largely because I wrote all the Jesus ones.

Just imagine your name your product your event being read out by me, what could be better than that. Just drop me. An Email missed the bottom of Jima dot com to discuss the packages available anyway, I will deprive, you know, long as I introduced Jemma show. Now, this is another pre baby Isaac conversation. So make the most of this. Because if you think that's nonsense now after eight hours sleep a night, you haven't heard anything yet enjoy this. I know you will ever see. Okay, jemma. So we start as we always do on the podcast. We've y'all maths speed dating questions so questionable. What's your favorite number? And why? I tried to think about this trying to come up with something quite clever, and then I realized that I was over thinking, and it's all that my favorite numbers, twenty-seven wise out. Well, it kind of started when I was little go. I really liked the fact that twenty seven going to somebody Basell class that twenty seven was three lots of nine. And I like the fact that nine was three lots of three. So it kind of felt lovely to me. And there was something about three the always felt perfect. I'm not quite sure why say summary. So then I think looking back the reason I like this much was because it was three power of three. So it was just a number that felt lovely to me. Composed of the same number of numbers. If that makes sense, and when I stopped to think about it as well the number. I also really love is four, but that's really similar because that's too squared. So we got three par three and five. And the something about those. I really night. And I also realized that part of this is to do with the way that sir numbers. Make me feel when again this is going to sound really old. When I think of some numbers now all of them when I think some numbers they come with. I usually, and I've since found out that this is a kind of a type of these people see colors where they where they pay them. And I don't have that. But I do have to say that his only realized this is is getting older like the the number three just feels perfect. But also simple simple cmih before it just feels like it. Messing with an four. It just does what is place today told you is really? But number five is awkward number five G and techno to put true feeling you get. Yeah. This is this is this thing is this. It's called ordinal linguistic personification, which is really happy for all members. And you'd think say something I find like tooth power two and three hours three you'd think I'd like fourth couldn't even tell you what they were. Because. Outside daily experience on that large. Wow. You say name what he's calling. It's called ordinal linguistic persona que discovered a couple of years ago. The may we'll be listening out in along thinking finally put a name to what I've been so from this. Fascinating. That's really not Jimmy. Well, what about question that would say what she favor in topic in mass as a student? What was your favorites? Okay. So it varies depending on the stage of school. I was in. I'm because I always loved mass. I always had something that was my favorite. But I particularly remember when really I felt compelled to count everything. So I won't street a street lamps and counting them in my head in voluntarily went along the phone would ring and his back in the day before ringtones. It was just, you know, an old fashioned ring and automatically start counting the number of rings until we pick up. So I think yes that started a love of anything to do with patterns, and repeating Patten's I think so then went on look at the topics I really enjoyed throughout school. They all have the same thing. Running through a loved learning, timetables, I lived for facial period of time in Scotland when I was about seven years old, and I'm hearing the class next to our chanting, timetables, and thinking, that's a may. As we want to do that really want to do that. And it was something about the the patterns, and it was peaceful and then going on a bit further when I was in secondary school. I love to finding the end of the sequence kind of felt like generalize something and something could be so entirely predictable. It sounds quite dull doesn't it? But, but then if the room when I got say, for instance, I lied integration and particularly by substitution. And I like the fact that you could take something that was so complex reduce it something very straightforward. And in a similar way Trig identities taken expression in looks really complicated. Do some kind of magic with it intended. Something really simple. I'm thinking of you must have been a delight to teach a student will you you just kinda love in maths all the way through next any bit that you haters. Well, it's interesting you say that when I was a level the one I really disliked was things like combinations and permutations used that she sticks in now, the vast. Are you using a teacher enough them now, and I love teaching them. But at the time, I hated them. I think part of the problem was the fact that my ainable mass teacher was a physicist, and he openly said to us, I don't really understand statistics properly. So I'm going to tell you this stuff. But I don't really know. How to explain it to you, very honest. And that transferred to me, I think so I didn't really make sense of it. I didn't understand I could never remember what the difference was between a combination a combination of mutation. And when you use formula win and all these kinds of things because I didn't really himself and I deliberately avoided anything to do with statistics in li- degree. We won't be very pleased to hit. When I became a teacher forced myself to go back and let it properly now enough it, and I love teaching it. Good. And it wasn't Mark McCall. It was teaching you then walls it, no.

And I just thought now know for this if you block him then or kicks off because they know that blocked that and then I've seen people who've blocked all the people and not peasant uses us fuel to kind of stir, trouble and Sony. Whereas mutes the beauty mute is they don't have a flip inclusive muted them, and yet you no longer have to put up with their drivel that they're saint-pierre. So now, I can happily post things, and if people criticize it, and they offer me something in return, an alternative them brilliant. But if they just slagging it off the getting a mute he's been a life changing for me. But just to go back to what me intervene was saying and sharing resources is a brilliant thing. I've seen it works. So well on Twitter. I I mentioned Chris McGrane he's greater this. He puts resource up, and he gets people from all different sides of the kind of spectrum of, you know, dire construction, right? Three to inquiry offering constructive, criticism suggestions and Sony takes all on board and work to that. And what comes out when he then kind of shows the next iteration of the resorts is it's a far better resorts and that works so so so well, and I probably don't have a strong current turf. I'm honest is Chris I take criticism quite bodily something I need to work on new to address. But what I what I think I'd say is if you are creating a resource and you want to get better then sharing on social media. But if people are saying things that aren't helpful to you try to block it out. And if you come block it out kind of mentally block it out physically with a cheeky little mute on on their on Twitter because share resources brilliant, the mass community as a whole ninety nine percent of them are absolutely amazing. They're so grateful when people share his office, and they're also willing to offer their opinion and in a really constructive way. But at one percent really mass things for everybody else. Some take away from that is chef things if you want to kind of put it out there look to improve. But. Don't be afraid to mute. All right. Second takeaway from navene from the beans conversation testing. Now, I'm just going to reread. These three quotes that come from the the the blog that navene Chattan is linked to the blog in the show notes. So he would go his quote number one. The testing process was about seventy five percent of the teaching process. Now just pulls that because that's interesting because when I put my book out, a Howeish, I taught maths I spoke about low stakes quizzes and a lot of their kind of feedback. I got from that is I don't have time to do the quizzes because I've got to do the teaching of Ghana teach new contents. A my point there was the more you quiz, the less time you're going to need to spend going back over stuff. The already toss you actually gonna get through more content. And is again, it's about separating testing from learning testing isn't just a neutral form of Sussman testing is a way to help students retain things helps you remember things helps you learn things. So the testing process was about seventy five percents of the teaching process, again, just don't that sounds high. I dunno. I saw that last the last the first the second one the learning pupil starts once they are tested now. Again, that's interested. I used to think that kids start learning as soon as I'm talking to them as soon as I'm explaining things that's been learning skin it, but the navene only starts once they're tested because they start to put things together they start to see for themselves. Whether they understood something whether they can recreate it whether they can answer a similar question when that can apply to a different context, the learning for pupils starts won't say attested and finally an aloof this one listening isn't necessarily evidence that the kids have learnt anything. But pupils listening to the teacher gives the impression that they are learning now again, it goes back to rob coz kind of pure poor. Sorry. Poor proxies for learning where rob co talks about engagement being poor proxy for learning. We call observe learning Lenzing learning visible. We just look for signs. That we hope indicate learnings humming and pupil engagement people chatting away. And so looking animated. Oh that must be because then that must mean that they're learning and Robert he's no it doesn't. But Vince kind of taken it to another Xtreme here. So student sat there listening to the teacher gives the impression that learning, but it doesn't necessarily mean learnings happening. It only happens once they're tested, and this made me think about my silent teacher approach because for me that's kind of like stage won- of once you start to take things in. But I guess I only know whether that's happened on our when we get to the your turn part stage three and the show coal part. Because that's when students are so I actually do something for themselves. And that's when they an me start to see whether any learning has taken place. So again, perhaps listening in silence. He's also a poor proxy for learning. And then just when I was preparing this interview, I was just on Twitter last night. And I came across one Amarna courts tweets and marks combat on the show when. He when he's book on mastery comes out, a mock said this testing is no indication at all of learning say that again testing is no indication at all of learning learning takes place over time the testing here is merely to indicate pupils are gaining proficiency slash count perform now any to dig into more of what Mark means by that. Because I seems quite strong testing is no indication at all of learning. So again, there are different views left, right and centrum this and to important things that I took away from the testing thing the first of all you mentioned I not seeing testing as purely a tool of assessment is the key. And both for teacher. I'm for the students. If testing is all about mocking for the collected in scores. Putting them on a spreadsheet high stakes for the kids and so on and so forth. Then incentives are distorted teachers are want to do testing last kids panic and so on and so forth. Whereas once you start see testing Ashley's a crucial Paul the learn. Earning process, then I think it becomes more effective. And Secondly, just as important there are different forms of testing testing isn't always quizzes or exams. It can be the autumn part of a example problem. It can be the teacher questioning once one whole class small Greece. It can be the show called parts of words, examples and Sonus lots of different forms of testing. But if you buy into what navene saying that thing is when the learning stops. And finally finally the booklet, I've you downloaded this booklet PDF absolutely sixty three pages. Now, this is this is what we've been waiting for on the podcast. This is a scripted lesson is the thing that we've been taught hinting out into The Danny Quinn, and Greg Achmed to a lesser extent Chris Bolton, but you it is this is what it looks like all the way all the dialogue. The teachers going to say all the dilute students are gonna follow and just wanted to pick out a couple of features about this booklets, and that we didn't discuss in detail in the interview, and the first is we just looked where. Star. So this is all about rearranging equations and the first bits, I'm if you go into page two, and this is the dialogue. We will learn how to rearrange a formula. So it starts with a particular known. This is known as changing the subject to other formula. Here are some examples where a is a subject of the formula notice the careful use of language that use of unknown these of formula three times within two sentences all about reinforcing, this key dialogue. It's not leaving it up to chance that the teacher just sessile than the hopefully made sense it scripts in its planet out. But then look at here are some examples of where as subject to the formula. So we start with some points equals b plus acts was B-minus acts. But behrman this is this is the start of this particular learning episode by the end of it. We have a equals the square root of be square minus x squared so exposing students to complex more challenging examples early on so that they don't become weird and unfamiliar. And then as we go through we have more scripted dialogue. We then have the examples that we spoke about within the Wien, and this how many examples have five examples six six examples in this this I bet culminating in make y the subjective why plus m equals three plus x squared not just the one step equation. You just have to subtract 'em or eliminates him to use navene language here. But it's including these powers, it's including numbers to show students that it doesn't matter almost how complex certain aspects of this formula looked like you can still do this one step. But then we have a mini quiz west USA challenge. They give given six different formulas an estimate be the subject, and again, we have cubes in there. We have numbers. And now, we have letters we have fractions, and sewn and so forth. And then an after one more example, we then get to practice exercises. So we have make X the subject, and we have an eight p in terms of examples there, we have more challenging was make why get we have aids. To al. And then we have kind of in context wants me arrange the formula to find the conference of a circle and then rearrange the formula vehicles. You say t- to express you in terms of the kind of SUV out once and then we have more questions, and then that comes comes to the second thing that's the culmination of that part of the learning episode, and then we have once that rearrange compound, Bruce, and it starts with a recap six questions. Recapping the skills from the previous lesson and then back into some Kathy constructed dialogue. We have learned how to change the subject of a formula using the foreign operations we had to perform one step and so on and so forth. Now, this Shad dialogue that the kids can access the teacher can read through it has to be by definition planned out in advance because he's written down is committed to paper and so on and so forth. So the first thing is I found this fascinating to see this in action. And I know people will look at this and think that is the worst thing they've ever seen navene Oaten in a self up to a lot of criticism here. But she's willing to do that. And what I really like is for people to read this booklet, and if you've got questions or concerns or things you want me to put to navene getting contact either through Email, Mr. bar message dot com Ovalles, my Twitter at Mr Barton maths are put intervene when she's back on the show. But I just wanted twin with this thing about me. Now what I found those booklets useful, thirsty as an t. I'll be honest. I think how would and I I didn't know any better. I didn't know any difference. I should say at know, there were other protests, and this would have helped me see how to structure a sequence of lessons. And that is something I was crap out for many, many many as my planning was one of lessons. That's what it was this. We'd show me how it all fit together. It would show me the importance of the Catholic use of language. I've spoken about this in the podcast and a couple of times I'm gonna reflect on it in my Alex Quigley interview, which will be coming out and

"Hello. Well, new the rapid owed the missed the Baltin Matz podcast with me crepe Baltin, I show eight people interest uninspired me from the world of education this summer around. I spoke to David died out. David is a former English teacher who now works as an educational consultant. He's the creator of the incredibly popular learning spy blog, which was massively influential for me when I was working on my own book. How I wish I taught maths David is also the author of not one, but two of my all time favorite education books. Firstly? What if everything you knew about education was wrong? And then what every teacher needs to know about psychology, which he co wrote with former podcast guest, Nick rose. And now David has a brand new book out, and it is a Crockett making kids clever, a manifesto for closing the advantage gap. Not only. Is it a great book? It's also a little on the controversial side. So in a wide ranging conversation, David I covered the following things. I'm plenty more besides as an English teacher. What was David's view on both numeracy and literacy across the curriculum in schools and just as a word of warning. If you've got young children listening, you might want to tell them to cover their ears when David Chaz views on those matters. Then to what extent teachers have all the subjects access responsibility. Literacy, especially those poem muffs teaches was David worried about writing this book, given the controversial subject matter and his recent experience confronting some of the issues surrounding heritage -bility of intelligence on social media, which components of intelligence, a fix of which can be changed. What's the difference between intelligence, and I do a what role does the way we are raised by parents affect her? I q what is the effect? Of peer groups on I q. A what are the implications of that the schools just what is powerful knowledge? What approaches to education does David think, actually widened the advantage gap? What's the role of deliberate practice in education? What does they think about cognitive load theory? How about struggling failure? Especially when considering the implication, a former podcast gas from on Elizabeth's Bjork's were on desirable difficulties and David Dan reflects upon a significant piece of research before recommending a wounded full set of big three's for us all to check out. Now. I absolutely loved this conversation. I found the subject matter of David's book fascinating. And it was so Lookie to be able to dig into with the with David as you will hear and despite my very best efforts to prev- prepare. I was more than a little out of my depth at times. No change there. He say I'm still trying to get my head. Around the effect of parenting, an upbringing IQ, especially as hopefully in the next few weeks. I'll be parents myself, but David remained patient throughout and a more determined than ever to invite some thick guests on the show. So I can actually come across reasonably well informed for once as I will reflect on some of the key things. I've learnt and pundit since our conversation in my takeaway up the end of the show now just before we crock him if you're interested in spreading the word about your product service or event, thousands of intelligent engaged than quite simply incredible podcast listeners than I am now offering the opportunity to sponsor episodes of this podcast, just drop me. An Email at missed the Barton maths at Jima dot com to find out more about the packages available, and I'll put a link to that address in the show notes. Anyway, I will deprive you no longer as I introduce you to it died. Enjoy this. I know you will. See? Okay. David. So well into the podcast we start as we always do with the my speed dating questions so questionable one. What is your favorite number? And y I'm gonna say member three because it's the magic number. What you mean by the budget number? We know listen to the track by day Laso. I see nice touch. Okay. Vic that'd be tough to Q in the music in the background. Now. My mind go for very nice good answer. Good. How about what would you favorite topic in master's student? David. Well, I I struggled with mass as a season's. And I thought I was right back to my failed when pushman free, and I had to when I trained is a teacher had to retake my mess. GCC in order to the accepted on the training course. And the old lead. You I am I going to bait which I'm told is quite good. Yes. As good as you could have gotten out pay nothing were still disappointed in get higher. Even though it will impossible. But, but when I was saying I got really into probability and allow it sort of it made my head her a lot. I probably the branch of maps of fine. Most us nights that cinch is interesting savings when call Hendrick was on the show he talks about how when he was at school. You wasn't a particularly big fundaments. And I asked him, and I'm gonna ask you the same thing. Looking back at it. Now with with all the know what will what you put it down to what what was the issues kind of fist around was with. You was it your attitude was the way you were taught to a what what was it hard to say. I think probably was not sure why. But I felt I had a real anxiety about mass. And and I would find myself stealing quite panicky. And and that was very uncomfortable feeling because it didn't want to fail feeling affirmed that crash Rable to say Kombi Pulford. Yes, that's very interesting. But you enjoy like you still you would you be doing it kind of recreationally now at an interesting muffs just on a casual. Not not really know to be to be Frank. I mean, I'm interested in in statistics and learned a lot of access ticks over the last few years, but I wouldn't say learned to lot because starches from such a. But but I find it really interesting. I really like a recently read a great book called the I dilution by Othello Kohl's Gary Smith, and which is all of our. You know, people sort of illiteracy in this area causes to make some very stupid decisions and think city things, and so I'm really interested in max. Nice. Well, say even yourself to the months teaching audience there anyway, David without you haven't dismissed muff, south of home. So we're doing all righty with final speed dating question. What would you like to do if you weren't involved in education for correspondent reverting? Any particular country? I'd like to a lot of laces skates. Was I and I'd like to wear a flak jacket Bibo like Keeton EBay. Fantastic outside. Well, just before we dive into career, this is kind of last minute addition to to the general it's torture about. So I've just been thinking about this on the train from London and whenever I'm looking to speak to enlist teaches. I'm always fascinated on their views firstly on numeracy across the curriculum. Because it's something that kind of we we as musty ges. Compact a portion it almost feels like trying to shoehorn math into the subject. So as an English teacher what what was your view on numeracy across the curriculum. And did you find something that was easy to get into your lessons? Or did it feel a bit forced well, the wet when I was a teacher the numerous secret, secure gender was always really stupid. So just putting them visit to the Sekhmet say, you know, you'd have you'd have lesson feet, by way, they said things I own you could have came to the lines in that poem. And I genuinely thought that was a waste of everybody's time. And I think that I think the numeracy's the wrong parts of maths to put the cross curriculum. I would rather look mathematical thinking across the curriculum, which I think really genuinely relevant. What would fit in a subject like English is being able to say. Okay. So let's let's divide. Data. If we if we compare something that's look the things that a difference in the things that similar maybe we can use mathematical tools like like ven diagram think lattes and social all let's let's look. The incidents of particular types of words in in attacks, unless unless plots on a on a on a chart, so we can say highly rise in full those sorts of things actually can shed some sorts of insight as opposed to being bolts onto the sacred. That's interesting. So using the tools props as opposed to the content itself might be the way forward ally alike, and let let me flip around then David what's your view on on kinda literacy across the curriculum is just as bollocks? I'm gonna say this is somebody that does a loss of training literacy across the curriculum. And the first thing I say is it is absolutely not the job science teachers will messages to be teaching kids how to use apostrophes or any of that solar stuff. I think that teaches no matter their subject needs to know enough to be not making. Heinous eras neurons of communication, and and I deal they know enough the when a when a student in that class commit some sorts of Farrell when they get something wrong to be able to identify what they don't have to have to make sure they don't do it again. But I certainly date thing they should be teaching of the bit that think is is with ceiling across the curriculum is is language, and so must Matic's has its own guage. It's it's mode of communication is discourse. As science has does languages as does in history. And so getting teaches to think about helping children to develop that ability to communicate their the standing of mathematics in the classroom things abets Abed's unless Lott to ruins of sort of irritating. Take his into doing stuff like in the same way. The I. About two km words in. Fascinated. Great out, David. Well, I own the kind of tease for what we're gonna talk about lady can just you can just take listens through your career for where it all started fully away you on now without so right? Okay. Well, I late entrance to teaching. So I was twenty eight when it started back in the late nineties, and and so I I worked as a awards in schools for twelve years in various different comprehensive mainly in the south west mainly in western superman. I don't know if you know, western CPA Massol the south to me that they check him. Well, I live in Bristol week rule. It western super nightmare. Sometimes heroin on sake. So it's not kind of place. And and so, you know, what's a what's in western for nine years. And and that sort of certainly had a lot of influence on me. Anyway. AM? I gave up teaching. I mean because I was doing job which already really hated. I was working school where I had ill-advisedly take it a job on the late shift team and my role as I stood it was to try and. Try and get teachers who are on capability acts of the school in an I felt it was against everything was ROY. I felt very miserable. Having to do that children. And at the same time. I was getting requests from schools from from various institutions to come in to talk. So to provide consultant saying are always had Sino con Chubb. And combination of pushing pull. Was. Well stocked. Usual took me into the classroom in leads me. Let me to the dark side. An education can still Sint. Can I just ask about because I'm on I'm on a sabbatical from from teaching myself at the moment, and whenever I'm looking off to him to work with teachers, I run a workshop or a conference. I almost feel apologetic. I almost kind of star is saying sorry, and that I'm not day-to-day in the classroom to do you feel
