Higher Order Questioning - Staff Presentation

Higher Order Questioning - Staff Presentation

I was asked to put together a presentation for staff to explain the importance of higher level questioning and give some examples of approaches and activities to encourage it. The powerpoint does just that! This was followed up with further training sessions and now I lead a SWG for stretch and challenge. Please feel free to contact me if you would like further explanation of any activities or further examples. I have not been able to upload the Question Generator but can send this to you separately. Also included, a self assessment sheet and notes to go with the powerpoint. Additionally, the slides contained structured questions relevant to the subject, within the Academy I teach at, all subject areas produced a specific one. The idea being that students get more used to higher order questioning and encourages better peer questioning, teachers have a visual aid - often useful if being observed.

How to Learn a Language: A Young Person's Guide

How to Learn a Language: A Young Person's Guide

How to Learn a Language: A Young Person's Guide is a self-help book for young people learning any foreign modern language at any level whatsoever. It describes how to improve the level of performance in modern foreign language studies by giving help, advice, suggestions and useful tips on every possible aspect of modern foreign language learning. Modern languages teachers will also find it a valuable resource either for individual reference and/or whole-class use. The book can be used by language learners of all ages who find themselves in a classroom situation. They may be studying at school, college or university, or attending a night-class. They might be aiming to pass an examination or just learning a language for the fun of it. They may be a committed and able student who wants to progress even further, or an average student who wishes to build on strengths and eliminate weaknesses. Whatever the situation, How to Learn a Language: A Young Person’s Guide will help them take charge of their own learning and offer them practical advice and suggestions on the best ways to learn, practise and revise the modern foreign language (or languages) that they are studying. The style of writing is simple, friendly and accessible. Everything is expressed clearly, with no jargon or technical expressions. The book is structured in such a way that it can be ‘dipped into’ as well as being read from cover to cover. The opening chapter takes the student through an optional review of strengths and weaknesses in his or her language learning and is cross-referenced to the rest of the book, thus enabling instant access to those parts of the text directly relevant to individual needs. The book is divided into four parts, each of which has four chapters: Part One: HELPING YOURSELF Chapter 1: Explore Your Strengths and Weaknesses Chapter 2: Manage Your Mind Chapter 3: Improve Your Learning Experience Chapter 4: Organise Your Work Part Two: PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT Chapter 1: Listening Chapter 2: Speaking Chapter 3: Reading Chapter 4: Writing Part Three: GOING IT ALONE Chapter 1: Using Your Textbook Chapter 2: Using a Dictionary Chapter 3: Doing Homework Chapter 4: Sitting Examinations Part Four: LIVING THE LANGUAGE Chapter 1: Using Computers Chapter 2: Sound and Vision Chapter 3: People Power Chapter 4: Getting Abroad Detailed information is available at www.mindyourlanguage.org.uk.

Observing a Lesson and Giving Feedback: A Guide to Best Practice

Observing a Lesson and Giving Feedback: A Guide to Best Practice

This resource provides a comprehensive guide to best practice in observing teaching and offering constructive feedback to colleagues. Based on the most recent research on facilitating teacher improvement, this 5 page document contains practical, hands-on advice that is suitable for lesson observation in both secondary and primary settings. It offers a ‘coaching’ model for supporting colleagues in reflecting on their own practice through the use of a ‘guided’ questioning framework. This will prove helpful both for those who have just taken on responsibility for the performance management of other staff or more experienced middle or senior managers wishing to refresh and update their approach. Both a PDF and Microsoft Word version of the guide are provided so it can be fully customised to reflect the teaching and learning priorities of an individual school.

🕑 Essential Teacher Resources 🕑 Timetables for Revision, Parents' Evening & Teachers

🕑 Essential Teacher Resources 🕑 Timetables for Revision, Parents' Evening & Teachers

The most interesting resource here is my idea for a FLEXIBLE revision timetable that worked very well with my daughter and was later loved by many of my students. The most important rule is: You don't fill anything out in advance. Let's say on Monday you really feel like doing some maths (obviously) and also your French teacher has set you a revision task. So you spend the evening studying maths and French. I usually advise between 30 mins and an hour on each subject depending on the strength of the student, so a total of 1-2 hours per evening. After studying, you fill out the Monday slot with what you actually did e.g. Maths: Trigonometry, French: Shopping vocab, and, most importantly, you cross off an "M" and an "F" from the subject grid at the end. This is repeated all week, but you're only allowed to study subjects that you haven't crossed off. By the weekend you're left to study the final remaining two subjects, and this ensures that you spend a fair amount of time on every subject without forcing you to do a specific one each day. This also leaves Sunday free to either relax or to catch up with any subjects you missed during the week for whatever reason. The subject grid can be modified to include multiple squares for more important or weaker subjects. For example in the attached version English is Poi's second language so we assigned three out of the twelve slots. Also included: 🕑 An aesthetically-designed set of timetables for a biweekly teacher's timetable. 🕑 A simple Parents' Evening timetable to put outside the room for parents to refer to. 🌟😊🌟 PLEASE RATE THIS RESOURCE 🌟😊🌟

Understanding yourself and others - Johari Window Model Workbook / Lesson

This is a 7 page workbook that introduces the topic of the Johari Window. This is a widely used model for understanding and training in a variety of self-awareness dependent activities such as: personal development, communications, interpersonal relationships, group dynamics, team development and inter-group relationships.
