This blog is designed to share my resources as an English teacher and a former teacher of ToK at IB. I am now retired, after a final year teaching a 40% timetable at a wonderful school near Salisbury, UK. I have been a Teacher of English, Head of English and Head of TOK an Assistant Head.

My posts reflect my own views and should never be taken as “fact”. Often I write deliberately as a stimulus, to goad a response from students and all I ask is that any reader uses my work to spark off their own thoughts and takes care not to regurgitate them piecemeal.

The podcasts are meant for consumption by my students and usually refer to ideas and discussions that have taken place in class. This does not render them meaningless for visitors from elsewhere, but you should be aware of this before you listen.
