    Default Leaving Cert Teachers should sit Leaving Cert Papers in subjects they teach!

    Leaving Cert Teachers should sit Leaving Cert Papers in subjects they teach!

    It would be very interesting to see how our teachers would do if they sat the leaving cert subjects they teach.

    In order for the test to be effective they would need to answer all questions on the paper.

    It would provide a great opportunity to confirm that teachers had a grasp of the subject they were teaching.

    It would be interesting to see if there was a correlation between the teachers performance and that of their students.

    Nothing is being done to weed out poor teachers!

    When I was did my mocks for the LC, our Geography teacher did one too. He came 3rd in the class.

    You need a great grasp of a subject to teach it effectively!

    My Irish teacher for the LC - in spite of teaching for yrs we were her first Irish class - was telling us after Easter (&Easter 2000 was extraordinarily late, v end of April) how in her college days she did a poem Caoineadh Art Ui Laoire (I can't remember how to spell it). Privately tuitioned me put up my hand: it's on the syllabus.
    She flipped through the book: 'oh, you're right!'
    After all, tomorrow is another day.

    I attended a school full of sons of past teachers etc.

    Some were good and others were absolutely dreadful.

    I felt at the time many needed psychiatric analyses, as many seemed to have forgone how to teach at all.

    Our history teacher was especially bad. I'm a history buff and noted that he constantly got his dates wrong i.e. D-Day happened in 1942, El Alamein happened in 1944.

    Baffling really. Would at least motivate teachers to in some way revise their given material. Many seem to just idly breeze through tedious textbooks and then assume that everyone has understood.
