This activity is for all ages and abilities and allows learners to not only enhance their word vocabulary but also there ability to explain their own skills and abilities and transferrable skills in a fun and engaging way. The work sheet is made up of 40 squares each with a different skill/quality inside. The worksheet can be differentiated by adding other resources such as a dictionary.

The activity requires the tutor to number the bricks on a Jenga game from 1 -40 as the learner pulls out a brick a number is revealed which corresponds to the worksheet, the student then identifies the word from the worksheet and then highlights it. The learner then has to explain when they have used that skill with an example e.g. punctual, the learner may say 'I am always on time to school/college as this is important when getting a job in the future' or if the learner is not good at this they can suggest ways to improve. When the game has finished the students should have many words highlighted they then use the next page to write a few sentences about the skills/qualities which are relevant to them. Once completed this can also be used towards creating a personal statement for a C.V.

Effective Email Communication - Writing Emails Powerpoint Presentation

Effective Email Communication - Writing Emails Powerpoint Presentation

This resource is a Powerpoint Presentation that can be used to train people on how to write emails effectively. I have used this on a leadership course and it was well received. There are some time saving gems in here that can be easily implemented into your work day. There are also tasks that can be completed in pairs or groups. Lots of areas for discussion. Also a good opportunity for businesses to think about and discuss best practice for their own organisation. The average office worker receives around 80 emails each day. With that volume of mail, individual messages can easily get overlooked. Follow these simple rules to get your emails noticed and acted upon: Don't over communicate by email. Make good use of subject lines. Keep messages clear and brief. Be polite. Check your tone. Proofread. ** Leave a review for this resource and receive one free resource of your choice from my shop.
