The teacher of a year 9 class promotes critical and creative thinking skills while modelling effective teaching strategies to a colleague. The focus of the lesson on social networking sites is the analysis of images that are projected onto an interactive whiteboard. The images allow students to critically and creatively explore different perspectives about the impact of social networking on young people and on society generally. The mentoring opportunity provided to the ‘beginning teacher’ allows for a discussion about possible teaching strategies that he can subsequently employ in his own class.
