Bad manners project

16 Aug

GIRL HOLDING PENCIL

A nice project with foundation resources from Carel Press which involves reading, writing, speaking and listening.  The students can review an informational poster related to bad manners and then discuss what they have read and if it applies to them.

Students are then asked to answer some questions to determine they have read the piece thoroughly then create a poster and write a piece about who inspires them as a role model.  There’s lots of opportunities here for small group work and creativity.  Thanks to Jackie Hutchinson for this resource.

Inclusion poster

An informative set of resources showing what inclusion is from the Tes Blog.  You could use the poster/Powerpoint as a point for discussion and ask students what they think the points mean and if they are valid or get the students to make a poster stating what inclusion means to them and display it somewhere prominently in the classroom.

Homophones poster

HOMOPHONES POSTER

A nice informative poster from Paula Hubbard showing the common homophone errors in writing.  This would be very handy as a classroom visual or for students to have as a handout to refer to.  You could also get the students to make their own homophone posters with the words that they most commonly get mixed up with to ensure they can independently support themselves when writing.

Mini self assessment for critical thinking

5 Aug

GUIDELINES FOR CRITICAL THINKING

This is a great mini self assessment from Jennifer Jones for the students to determine if they are thinking critically and also gives them some pointers to prompt critical thinking.

Students can refer to the rubric to score themselves on what they have done but an additional use for this resource is as a evaluatory writing prompt to prompt creative and informative pieces based on tasks carried out.

No 7. Create a Curriculum Wheel

15 Jun

A good idea to ensure that students have a visual representation of what they will be doing during the year and when. I usually provide the students with a list of everything being covered but I can see that this is a much better idea and is visually appealing.

Classrooms and Staffrooms


Curriculum Wheels

I had noticed these being used by other schools and decided to create my own for the Humanities Faculty at my school. They are a great way to visually and quickly see what topics are being taught and when by different subjects and departments. They are a useful way to show long term planning, and this is particularly useful as this is required for ISI inspections! They can be used within a department to compare the topics taught at Key Stage 3 from Year 7 to 9 for example, as well as across departments and different key stages. They could be displayed on your school’s website for parents and pupils to see what their programme of study will be for each academic year. The beauty is in their simplicity.

Incredible!
