The Sign of Four - Holmes and Watson

The Sign of Four - Holmes and Watson

In this engaging and informative lesson, students make clear and insightful interpretations of Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson – the chief protagonists in Arthur Conan Doyle’s 'The Sign of Four.' In particular, students learn about their key characteristics, mannerisms, appearance, and interactions of others – and relate these to ideas of societal expectations of the time. The lesson follows a step-by-step learning journey, in which students learn through: - Inferring and deducing what the novel may be about, from clues in the title; - Reading and understanding chapters 1 and 2, and demonstrating understanding through answers to comprehension questions; - Establishing the key character traits of Holmes and Watson, including their appearance, mannerisms and personality, using precise and relevant textual evidence; - Analysing how each character is presented in the opening two chapters; - Peer assessing each other's learning attempts. Included is: - Whole Lesson PowerPoint - colourful and comprehensive; - Paper Copies of Chapters 1 and 2; - Holmes Character Profile (and PDF); - Watson Character Profile (and PDF); - Essay Template; - Detailed Lesson Plan There are also opportunities for group learning, peer assessment, and whole class discussion. These resources were originally taught to GCSE students, but with subtle adaptations they have also been used with both younger and older (up to A Level) students.

Intervention Sheet by @TeacherToolkit

Intervention Sheet by @TeacherToolkit

This document enables teachers to understand how support fits in with the specific area/s of SEN it is targeting. It has helped to give our interventions greater focus; I encourage teachers to look at their record sheet before each lesson as way of focusing in on the young people. It is also a beneficial tool for sharing information with senior leaders. Staff who are responsible for writing SEN Support Plans can also find it beneficial to use the information on the intervention records to add depth to their plan so that they can write about interventions they do not lead with confidence.

Successful NPQH application - 2017 proforma/framework

Successful NPQH application - 2017 proforma/framework

This is a successful NPQH assessment, which was deemed above expectations in four core areas and at expectations in one area. I know when I was applying, seeing a successful application would have been helpful. Hopefully this will be of help for you too, if you are thinking of applying for the NPQH. I'm sure it will save you a lot of time!
