"Yes, as 'tolerance' of other students might be tested in times of stress.  The division of time by the tutor would have to be perfect."

Emma Breen replied to Ellie Nelson's discussion AUTISM WITH THE CLASSROOM- CAN IT HAVE A DETRIMENTAL EFFECT ON OTHER LEARNERS?
"Hi Ellie, I think this situation would have both pros and cons for the other learners. Throughout a career within the performing arts actors etc are likely to be faced with working alongside people from all walks of life and therefore this could be…"

AUTISM WITH THE CLASSROOM- CAN IT HAVE A DETRIMENTAL EFFECT ON OTHER LEARNERS?

I am currently doing an Action Research Project based around Autistic students within Performing Arts. There are so many benefits that drama/acting can bring to people with an Autism Spectrum Disorder, but do you think that there is a possibility that other learners within the classroom may be faced with the adverse effects of this scenario? I would love some fellow teachers opinions on the matter. See More

Ellie Nelson replied to Emma Breen's discussion What do you think the key factors that have an effect on a learners’ behaviour in level 3, post 16 education are?
"I feel what has happened to learners before the session is very influential to their behaviour within the class positive or negative. A good nights sleep, food and drink all account for the behaviour of people. As does what else is occupying their…"

Ellie Nelson replied to Colin Chaplin's discussion Is a more 'successful' artist a better arts teacher?
"Aspirate is a use of breath Colin! Particularly on words that shouldn't contain much like plosive consonants such as B and D hope this helps you to release your inner singer! ;-) x"

Laura Withers replied to Ellie Nelson's discussion Inclusive Teaching- THE MIDDLE MAN.
"Hi Roland Your point is very valid about not being able to form lessons plans for every single type of learner within the class, all achieving at different rates and in different stages.  I feel it would be totally impractical to be able to do…"

David Antrobus replied to Ellie Nelson's discussion Inclusive Teaching- THE MIDDLE MAN.
"Hi Ellie, this sounds like that classic school report of students in the middle that reads "doing fine but could do better" and then left there in this category until school finishes. I think students react differently to different ways of…"

Ellie Nelson replied to Jo Cuming's discussion Which technologies are most effective in the classroom? And how do they promote equality and diversity?
"Hi Jo, as a bit of a technophobe I am slightly opposed to using technology as I feel that it can encurr delays if there are problems with the equipment being used and can interrupt the flow in lessons if teachers are not familiar enough with the…"

Laura Withers replied to Ellie Nelson's discussion Inclusive Teaching- THE MIDDLE MAN.
"I agree Lucy! Also, the education systems are driven by the saying "bums on seats", as this ultimately results in funding. In my experience recently I have discovered some students have realised this resulting in negative attitude. This is…"

Ellie Nelson commented on Ellie Nelson's blog post Teachers-a how to guide.
"Hi Sam, I certainly agree that good subject knowledge, and great communication skills are essential to the profession. Coming from a performance background I am curious to find a correllation between teaching and performance. I know I am naturally a…"

Aimee Whatson replied to Ellie Nelson's discussion Inclusive Teaching- THE MIDDLE MAN.
"Seeing your commented Mel and you writing the word gifted reminded me of two things that happened at my secondary school. A scheme was ran called 'gifted and talented'. This meant that if your teacher saw you as bright you would get to go…"

Melissa Jade Totman replied to Ellie Nelson's discussion Inclusive Teaching- THE MIDDLE MAN.
"Definitely! When I was at school they were mainly only interested if you were gifted. Even if you were poor at a subject, you were mainly patronised or written off as just not being very good. I definitely think the kids who are in the middle suffer…"

What are the key qualities a teacher must have to excel within their profession?
Do you believe that everyone can teach, or are there attributes within a person that would make them unlikely to succeed within the industry?
