3. Golden rules of teaching. Gibbs in NCIS has RULES, in fact nearly 50 of them https://readingpower.wordpress.com/2010/06/08/popular-culture-rules/ So what are the rules of teaching? Here is my Rule 1 – Maximise time doing quality teaching. You may respond with Durrrr, but how much school time is spent with disruptions, kids in lessons with nothing to do if their teacher is absent etc. Is your school structured to maximize effectiveness of teaching time? Does your school have a target number of teaching days for each yea? What happens if a teacher is away? How much DVD babysitting occurs? So quality time = quality results – Rule 1.
