Jim Weiss, a former youth worker and experienced public speaker, is aware that his reliance on rhetoric can sometimes lead to under-planning his lessons at Lampton School, Hounslow.

John watches him teach a top-set Year 9 double lesson. Jim's a great entertainer but the secondary students are under-stretched and John thinks they could learn more if Jim talked less.

He believes Jim should save his storytelling skills for the most important moments, planning a stronger framework to his lessons and introducing a variety of activities to encourage independent learning.

Two weeks later John returns to find an improvement. Jim is carefully monitoring his talking and his lessons have a better structure, as shown in this classroom-management resource.
