One of the perils of teaching is having to endure the odd day of INSET (a fine example of trying to force an acronym when it’s not needed: ‘training day’ would be so much more self-explanatory) where members of staff demonstrate some of their weaknesses as teachers in front of the entire teaching body of a school.
Today we had the opportunity to get annoyed at the one who set us a task, gave us eight minutes to complete it, and talked for four of those eight minutes, thus making it rather hard to concentrate on the activity.
