Providing equal opportunities for all pupils, particularly with large classes, can be challenging. 'Public Holiday' and 'Seeking Help' portray fictional classroom incidents and invite discussion on the extent to which these teachers are offering all pupils a chance to contribute to the discussions and activities. 'Smart Father' and 'The Lost Boy' invite comment on the assumptions often made about pupils and the consequences of such assumptions. The clips in this album are designed to be used to support the development of teachers' classroom practice in both formal and non formal learning situations. This material is from the TESSA (Teacher Education in Sub Saharan Africa) initiative.
