Fantastic Powerpoint from email@example.com on TES resources which gives hundreds of ideas of how to differentiate – a great resource for any teacher.
This activity from Carrie on http://www.skillsworkshop.org really gets the students talking especially if the teacher provides a sheet of people that are diverse and challenge stereotypes.
The students have to decide who they would like in the Big Brother house and then have to justify who goes in and who doesn’t.
This features speaking and listening, reading, writing and persuasion.
This is a nice little reflective activity for students from http://www.lauracandler.com which could easily be adapted to cover thoughts on topics/subjects or end of year.
They would also make a nice welcoming display for the new students at the start of the academic year.
Some nice little questions to get students speaking about their skills and qualities if you click on the link below – if you create a game board using a large sheet of flipchart paper then the tasks becomes even more engaging. The board game templates are from donnayoung.org
A great poster from Rebecca Alber at http://www.eductopia.org to support teachers and students in effective questioning for assessment. This poster directs students to consider higher order thinking skills and moves beyond static questioning for assessment – a handy reference tool.
