In this episode of Lefty Teachers Talking Teaching our guest-John, Matt Smedley (@SmedBoule), tells us how our children can best outsmart NAPLAN as if it is a thing that matters. He also points out some problems with the test in general. Pete (@mr_van_W) doesn't have much of an opinion about it really.
Pete enjoyed the controversy of another article in the SMH this week, except this one didn't suck - we all just took it a little too personally.
On this weeks episode of Pete (@mr_van_w) and John (@jfcatto) both rage against some things that we feel are wrong in education, or at least within our little bubbles.
Pete: Secular groups call for review of 'blatantly discriminatory' school chaplains program Paul Karp
John: Flipping teaching on it's head - Linda Morris
