Top 25 Jobs in Canada: A One Page Webquest

Top 25 Jobs in Canada: A One Page Webquest

Are you covering a work or employment theme in your classes? Have your students learn about the top 25 jobs in Canada, according to a popular media website! This one page (okay, one page double-sided) webquest directs your students to a popular website to answer questions about the top jobs in Canada. The website has been running this feature yearly for some time now, so you can be sure it will run for some time in the future. What does this webquest offer your students? It tackles the issue of “you can not be what you can not see’.” If you’re working with newcomers to Canada as I am, you’re probably aware that many of them simply don’t know what jobs are out there. Well, this webquest addresses that. It also works on the skills of following instructions, comprehending information, and reproducing information. It helps develop skimming skills and the ability to identify key information. Who is this webquest for? It’s primarily aimed at English language learners from CLB 2-4, but it could also be used in elementary school classes. It could also be used at higher levels: while the language is simple, the content is not. Anything I should know? Webquests require a lot of explicit guidance at first. When I start doing them, I usually take students the process of answering the first one or two questions, step by step. You can never be too obvious when showing students how to complete them. Anything else? For your convenience, an answer key has been provided. The web site has been confirmed active and in use as of 2018-04-15. Feedback is appreciated! :)

groupwork self evaluation sheet metacognition reflection group work

groupwork self evaluation sheet metacognition reflection group work

A sheet designed to be used by pupils after a piece of workwork. It allows students to think about the processes that they undertook and how & why their practice could/should be improved in the future. It ties well in to metacognitive thinking in that it allows learners to address the entire learning experience and not simply knowledge. This should help promote even more effective learners at a departmental & whole school level.

Fishing for connectives display

Fishing for connectives display

This colourful under-the-sea themed display includes 30 different connectives grouped by their uses: To put ideas in order. To add evidence. To add more information. To explain. To emphasise. To contrast. To conclude. As well as all of the connectives on different shaped fish, it also includes all signage including a ‘Gone fishing…for connectives’ sign. I use it with my KS3 students in order to encourage them to use more connectives in their written work and develop their answers. Edit - In the previews, it looks like the connectives are written across the fish but in reality all of the words are actually inside the fish templates so the display is much neater than the previews suggest!
