Building Academic Vocabulary: A Postcard from Jo Facer’s Classroom – Teach Like a Champion

A few weeks ago we shot video at the Michaela School in London- truly a thought-provoking and inspirational place. I’ve just started in watching the footage, beginning with Jo Facer’s English class, and have already found a dozen moments I’m going to cut video of. But for now I just want to share a photo of Jo’s class.

In this lesson, she and her pupils are reading Othello.  It’s a rich and rigorous discussion. In one moment that I love, Facer is reading aloud from the text.
