Great blog Justin. I’m just a novice at this but I thought I’d have a go at creating a blog for my drama students explaining my aims and trying to stimulate some feedback from them. Do your students ever read your blog?

By the way I’ve been reading your links page for theatre for a couple of years now. Thanks for all the hard work you put into that. Drama teachers round the world are grateful to you.

I teach in the UK but am always impressed by the work I hear about from Aus.It sounds like Drama is a big thing in your education system.

Good post, Justin. Where I teach, the Maths department has been setting higher standards than before. We are finding the students responding very well. Today a few of us remarked that our year 7s were solving complex equations. We used not to teach this skill until year 8. I think we don’t always have to ask for more work, we just have to insist on worthwhile, high quality work.

Keep up the good work,
