Good Teaching

Good teaching (or training, if you prefer) often boils down to the same format whatever the context.

West Berkshire Council have just prodiced an excellent DVD for helping children with autism, particularly during the transition to secondary school. The DVD was made with help from several groups and agencies, including the famous Priors Court School.

To accompany the DVD, there's a credit card-sized concertina prompt sheet.

Making School Work

On one side.

On the other (precid):

Communication - keep language simple
Social Understanding - unwritten social rules
Organisation - What, where, in what Order, what Next
Coping with Change - prepare in advance
Homework - what, how long

Now I'd say that was all 'good teaching' - and much of that list applies to rider training asmuch as anything else!
