Lower Sixth students plan and deliver their own lessons

Sociology Lower Sixth students are currently studying the topic of “Education” and this week they have planned and delivered their own lessons as though they are the class teacher.  The nature of the “Education” topic looks at key issues in schools such as labelling and setting students, therefore this project enables them to have first-hand experience of what a teacher needs to consider.  Their Sociology teacher has worked with them on planning and what activities to put together for a good lesson. Mr Barrs, Headteacher observed one of these lessons and concluded that “ ’the teachers’ had excellent subject knowledge and all students in the class made progress!”
