NEW + IMPROVING TEACHERS SET - Behaviour Management, Rapport, First Impressions & Class Expectations

NEW + IMPROVING TEACHERS SET - Behaviour Management, Rapport, First Impressions & Class Expectations

TIPS FOR NEW + IMPROVING TEACHERS SET - Behaviour Management, Rapport, First Impressions & Class Expectations After 10+ years of experience, I now teach student teachers of English at our local university. This is set of helpful tips and information which I present to my students at the start of their teaching diploma. This information on basic teaching building blocks enables teachers to set the right tone right from the start of the year - creating a positive first impression, having that classroom ‘presence,’ creating rapport with students, how to manage behaviour and discipline students, how to deal with problem kids, etc. Lots of excellent and extremely clear, specific, hands-on advice which you can put into action right away. Even teachers with a few years under their belt may find it and interesting read and glean a few tips to take away. 9 pages of written tips and hints, plus an editable 2 page class expectations document which you can edit and hand out on the first day of class to all your students. #CHECK OUT my other great resources - I have some great essay writing posters, and a pack of posters with wise quotes which you can easily print on coloured paper and use to spruce up your room superfast.

Lesson Plan Template - Visible Learning Inspired

Lesson Plan Template - Visible Learning Inspired

The Visible Learning lesson plan utilises John Hattie’s research to structure your lesson. Simple, effective, organised. The document is well formatted and structured. It explicitly states the goal(s), reasons for learning, and title of the lesson through the ‘We Are Learning To (WALT), This Is Because (TIB), and What I Am Looking For (WILF)’ headings. It fits neatly onto a one page document that can be filled out directly (without expanding the text boxes), or printed and written by hand. The Visual Learning Lesson Plan integrates assessment measures, or ‘Checks For Understanding’ (CFU), into its three activity slots. Some tips for formatively assessing your students are given at the base of the document. Considerations for student instruction are included in the far left column of each activity. The document includes ‘student focus’, ‘teacher focus’, and time frame columns in order to help teachers (especially beginners) organise, prepare and visualise their lessons. A ‘hook/do now’ section allows teachers to engage students and begin the lesson with discussions, activities, or videos in order to capture their attention. The Visible Learning Lesson Plan is designed for classes of roughly forty minutes to one hour, however the time frames can easily be adjusted by adding additional activity boxes. Simply copy and paste.

KS2 Stone Age Vocabulary - illustrated

KS2 Stone Age Vocabulary - illustrated

A collection of 55 terms relating to Archaeology and the Palaeolithic (Old Stone Age). Based closely on the content of our KS2 learning workshops, which specifically address the 2014 National Curriculum statutory unit “Changes in Britain from the Stone Age to the Iron Age.” The Old Stone Age is the starting point against which other changes can be most successfully measured, as it was a lengthy pre-agricultural period of nomadic hunter-gatherers, spanning around 99.5% of our history. Supported by unique and original images including real and replica artefacts, each term has a carefully-researched definition added, based on our specialist knowledge of this period and our experience of teaching about it. Pairs of terms are presented in A4 landscape format ready for printing, and laminating if required. This resource is guaranteed FREE of second-hand clip art cartoons featuring stereotypical images of club waving cavemen in fur nappies, and aims to knock the somewhat unhelpful Flintstones image squarely on the head. Can be used for display, reference, or matching exercises, by children in the classroom or for in-school staff INSET. Available for download in .pdf format. For non-commercial educational use and display only.

Growth Mindset presentation (Enrichment)

Growth Mindset presentation (Enrichment)

Growth Mindset Enrichment presentation This presentation has 56 slides and contains 14 videos, which are all embedded (EXCEPT THE VIDEO THAT EMBEDS ON SLIDE 55 AS IT MADE THE FILE TOO LARGE, EVEN AFTER COMPRESSING, SO THIS VIDEO HAS BEEN INCLUDED AS A SEPARATE FILE FOR YOU TO RE-EMBED) into the presentation and play full-screen automatically. AIMS Understand what a growth mindset is Understand the plasticity of the brain Encourage students to take ownership of their learning Develop R & I (Resourcefulness and Initiative) Understand and develop grit Push yourself beyond comfort zone to take on new challenges Learn to not fear mistakes, learn from them (Growth Mindset) This power point is suitable for delivery as part of a whole school CPD, department CPD, or, as part of enrichment week, delivered to a whole year group. The presentation lasts between 1 ½ -2 hours, depending on how familiar you are with the Growth Mindset and how much you elaborate on each slide. The presentation contains a section where the students are asked to draw a self-portrait using their current technique, then again under the expert tuition of a YouTube artist, so they can see the instant impact better techniques have. You can see me going over the PowerPoint on my YouTube channel “gcsephysicsexplained”: [Link][https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eMapEUiWYrs&t=24s&list=PLjs3KMU7zKeh6TQlEA7csA9knbtiCCAcH&index=3] I follow up the presentation by giving a questionnaire to the students (attached as a download). The presentation gets great feedback, mostly saying how inspired the students feel to take responsibility for their own learning, and how they wish someone had told them about the growth mindset and the plasticity of the brain earlier. Kind regards Matthew Obee

Growth Mindset Display

Growth Mindset Display

The idea of the display is to encourage students to change their vocabulary. The display is firmly based on the work of Carol Dweck and the idea of fixed and growth mindsets. The display is based on famous individuals who had growth mindsets and using their vocabulary to enhance the learning of the students and to encourage them to put in effort and to try. There is also an opportunity for a mistake and success board as seen in the picture as the central theme of the display, this is where you as a teacher can highlight both successful work and good mistakes. The idea being both really good work and work with lots of mistakes make it to the board, and the students see mistakes and successes as one and the same - There is an image attached to show how this works.

Reading Cycle Professional Development Notes

Reading Cycle Professional Development Notes

This product contains the notes from a professional development session that I attended. It deals with teachers being able to ensure that each student is effectively comprehending text during close reads. To be made clear, during close reading sessions, it is possible that instructors may get what is called a “false positive” or indication that a student understands a concept of the text when they actually do not. **False Positive Prevention Method - ** occurs when students are able to write about and discuss a text with some accuracy after gleaning an understanding of a text from what teachers and peers says about the text, NOT from their own understanding about the text. The Reading Cycle Strategy prevents this situation by taking the READ-DISCUSS-WRITE method to the next level through the following steps: Read-Discuss- Read Read-Write-Read Read -Write Discuss Read-Write -Discuss Read-Discuss-Write-Revise Each of these steps are explained within this product.

Taboo Icebreaker Game - staff meeting / training

Taboo Icebreaker Game - staff meeting / training

I made this game as an ice-breaker task for some training I did for new teachers, but this would also work really well at the beginning of a staff meeting or training day. The game is based on the party game ‘Taboo’. How it works Print out the resource and cut into cards which show a word or phrase in bold at the top followed by 5 associated words underneath (all related to teaching). Split staff into small teams (or pairs could work as well) and give each team a set of cards. Staff take it in turns to try and get their team or partner to guess the word at the top of the card without saying any of the words underneath. You could give everyone a set amount of time to see how many cards they can get through or say that the first team or pair to guess all the cards wins.

It helps you build a shared understanding within a team about what’s working well, areas in need of improvement and areas of opportunity.
