Morethanajob Podcast in association with ResearchEd has the absolute pleasure to welcome the greatest duo, partnership and bromance in education – Tom Sherrington & Oliver Caviglioli. They need no introduction as their reputation proceeds them and it is our absolute pleasure to welcome them both to the podcast for the first time as a duo.

Welcome to the podcast!

What have you both been up to since we saw you last at ResearchEd Surrey?

We have the completion of the trilogy! Walkthrus 3 (https://www.johncattbookshop.com/teaching-walkthrus-3-five-step-guides-to-instructional-coaching) is being pre-ordered now and due for release on the 18th April. How does WT3 compliment WT & WT2?

How does the writing process happen between you two? Who decides the colour? Oli – we love the avatars of Mo & Melissa but what’s your inspiration behind designing these avatars?

How would you recommend we use the Walkthrus? Should ideas and strategies be clustered?

Walkthrus 3 has 23 guest authors!! How have you come up with ideas for this edition? What is different about this edition?

You write a Walkthru focussed on seating plans and you open by talking about designing the arrangement. Is there a proven best classroom layout? Is there advice you’d give to teachers as where to seat PPr, SEND students etc?

You have focused on the a Walkthru guide for ending lessons and the last 10 minutes – why is this so important and what are the best steps to effectively ending a lesson?

How will this Walkthrus guide support curriculum development and curriculum leaders? What in particular would you say are the key messages from Walkthrus 3?

I was particularly drawn to your chapter on ‘Advance Organisers’ based upon the work of Robert Marzano et al. Is this an indication now that we’re increasing the level of expectations of students – I didn’t start pre-reading until I started university. How do we embed this into practice and school culture?

We are finally seeing a move away from rigorous and ineffective marking policies with priority rightly being given to feedback. You have developed a Walkthru about ‘Assessment Portfolios’. Why have you included this, how are assessment portfolios used and is there any evidence to back their use?

Morethanajob podcast are huge fans of the Walkthrus series and we have all used them and can see the impact. What would you say to those who haven’t come across the Walkthrus before and why would it benefit them to use the series?
