Interview with the students:
What have you found the particularly useful about the sessions with Gavin?
Soraya: Probably finding out new words and it’s improving my reading.
What do you think about Gavin?
Leah: He is very interactive and passionate about English
And how do you feel it has helped you outside of class?
Becky: Well we are studying Animal Farm later in the term so I think that what we have learnt about censorship of the press will be useful.
Interview with Gavin:
How do you feel you have supported their learning?
G: I think by encouraging them to push themselves to realise that learning is away of life rather than just an exam.
You were also observing lessons earlier this week – what was that like?
G: It was interesting to see behaviour management because I am going to do a PGCE and that is something university cannot really prepare you for.
In terms of teaching style, what did you notice?
G: I noticed that you have to keep them interested as a teacher – once they are bored they will rebel
And what have you taken away from the experience?
G: The most important I've taken away is that even as a Teacher you can keep on learning.
