|How to Teach||The Unteachables|
However, if producers and researchers catch me on a day when the wind is right and my face hasn't stuck like that, then it is possible that I'll gulp down my self respect and enjoy the barrage of abusive e-mails.
Previous stimuli of abusive e-mails has included:
- Channel 4's Unteachables
In which a school teacher was stuck in a room with some nice kids and got away with it.
- Channel 4's Can't Read, Can't Write
In which a school teacher taught some nice ladies who couldn't read to read and received punches from various government agencies for having done so. And during which the aforementioned government agencies refused to give the learners the certificates they had richly earned in a stunningly unpleasantly small minded piece of pointlessly Machiavellian political posturing.
- Channel 4's 30 Minutes
In which a school teacher questioned the quality of education in Britain’s elite environments.
- Teachers' TV Phil Beadle Masterclasses
Embarrassingly titled programmes in which a school teacher teaches some pretty good lessons on poetry and punctuation and a borderline pass on Dickens.
- Teachers' TV White Underachievement
In which a school teacher gets cross about something really important and recites a lot of Gillian Evans' lines.
- Teachers TV A Lesson from the Best
Embarrassingly titled A fifteen minute biog(y) thing about a school teacher in Canning Town, which is - God knows how - now used as a teaching resource in Universities from the West Coast of America, through to South Australia. Yes, people with strange accents. This is how you do it.
- Teachers' TV Teaching and Learning with Beadle
Embarrassingly titled pilot for a channel that knew it was going under, in which a teacher who is not yet aware that he is going bald, mentors another teacher, and says some quite interesting things about expectations and learning. Recommended, if only for the hairline.
