Court Wordsearch Courts Law Literacy Starter Activity Homework Cover Lesson Plenary

Court Wordsearch Courts Law Literacy Starter Activity Homework Cover Lesson Plenary

Wordsearch on the theme of 'Court'. Powerpoint so can be used on the board or printed as a worksheet. Includes space for students to explain the keywords and suggested extension activities. Can take 10 minutes or an hour, depending on which activities the students complete. Ideal for the start of a lesson, a quick filler, a homework, part of a cover lesson or as a plenary on the board with a whiteboard pen. The idea behind these is to get students to become more literate and think independently about the words that could be used to describe the topic being taught. The repetition of the word over and over as they look for the word is useful in remembering the terms. Often the students will pick up on things that you would not normally expect!

Brexit-vision Song Contest: Who should you vote for?

Brexit-vision Song Contest: Who should you vote for?

This resources is a fun, interactive and thought-provoking take on Brexit. The lesson asks pupils to think of Brexit as if it was the Eurovision song contest - introducing them to the key political figures, which institutions they represent and what their biases may be - and to imagine the contestants performing their Brexit-priorities through the form of a song contest. It introduces students to who is behind Brexit, what the negotiating positions are and what the outcomes might be - all in an engaging and experience-led learning journey. The activities promote group and individual tasks, and the lesson ends in a platform through which students share their own political priorities through the Brexit process. For more on Brexit and if you're interested in FREE in-school sessions run by the European Parliament please email: sam@involver.org.uk

EXCERPT: It is increasingly well documented that some nurses are not taking care of patients because they are instead on their cell phone or tablet at the nurse’s station. Hospitals which employ distracted nurses increasingly face lawsuits. Case in Point: an elderly patient with a fever of 104.6F went to the ER, was triaged and placed in a room. Her husband and a neighbor were with her. After several hours, the neighbor went to the nursing station where there were six staff members using their cell phones. One staff member told the neighbor, “We’re talking to doctors about patients.” Then the patient’s husband went to the nursing station where he saw a nurse reading a book on an electronic tablet. A physician admitted the patient 14 hours after she arrived. 4 hours passed before antibiotics were administered to her. The patient developed sepsis and died. The husband sued for medical malpractice and used discovery to obtain cell phone records of all staff involved. The records revealed that none of the staff’s cell phone usage was work-related. Case # 2: [during cross examination, the attorney introduces posts from the nurse’s personal Facebook page. Says to nurse:] Attorney: Can you read the highlighted portion?
 Nurse: [reading] Oh, wow. Yes. Okay.
 Attorney : Can you read it?
 Nurse: “After enduring the worst day on duty I’ve had in a while, I just found out my next patient has lice. Freakin’ lice! I didn’t even know they still made those! Help!” What most distracted nurses do not realize is that if they are reading Facebook or surfing the Internet, all of that can be tracked with date and time, including the nurse’s personal tech devices and the hospital computers. Whenever an attorney is preparing for a deposition, one of the first things investigated is all social medial posts/pages. These have become gold mines of damaging information to use against nurses in malpractice cases.
