This week, yet more dismayed heads of maths telling me about consultants who have told them that mastery means teaching one topic for a whole term or that mastery requires mixed ability classes. No. No, it doesn’t. Stop spreading this nonsense.

This thread is right on the money Having a common language around good teaching is helpful for new and experienced alike, as is knowing why something works. Teachers writing about teaching is to be encouraged, not disparaged.
