Blog Post Title: The Architecture of High Expectations

Blog url: https://howthenshouldweteach.wordpress.com/2019/09/07/the-architecture-of-high-expectations/

Short blog description: What it’s about. (100 words max): I was often told at the beginning of my career: ‘You must set high expectations’. But what does that actually mean in the classroom? Is there visible, obvious, replicable things that teachers can do to maintain this elusive goal? And what difference does it actually make anyway to pupil outcomes? This blog post reflects on how I learned what ‘high expectations’ mean and how I maintain them in my classroom.

Short blog description: What it’s about. (100 words max): Born in England, developed in Zimbabwe, living and growing in South Africa. I am passionate about education generally, and wellbeing in schools specifically. My blog considers educational issues, teen well-being and boarding school life in a small valley somewhere in KwaZulu-Natal. As a guidance counsellor and member of the Global Advisory Board of the University of St Andrews I also explore topics related to Higher Education. In 2018 I was the conference lead at the inaugural researchED conference in South Africa and was Programme Director for researchED Cape Town in 2019.
