Feedback and Marking Ideas for CPD

Feedback and Marking Ideas for CPD

This is a resource that I used at my school to present a CPD session about reducing workload and increasing the effectiveness of marking. It has links to academic research and twitter feedback champions. All of these ideas come from "Mark. Plan. Teach." By Ross McGill.

All the news fair and balanced. Or is it? Our students come from homes where these news outlets become the moral compass of their parents. They then come into school with less tolerance for others only to discover that diversity is everywhere including their classroom. This audio will help you understand why teaching tolerance is so important.

Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone KS3 Comprehension Activities Booklet!

This resource booklet contains a wide range of age-appropriate, engaging, and meaningful comprehension activities for use throughout the reading of J.K Rowling's 'Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone.' Teachers have found them particularly useful in comprehension or guided reading sessions. They are perfect for aiding the progress of children towards meeting the KS3 expectations within the new National Curriculum framework. Children have found these resources extremely engaging, and for teachers there is explicit information within each task regarding which comprehension strands the task is designed to demonstrate. They also relate to key extracts, characters, and themes from the story, ensuring that children gain a deep understanding of the text. Activities within the booklet include: - 'Context: Magic' - to enable students to demonstrate that they can: 'Know the purpose, audience and context of the writing and drawing on this knowledge to support comprehension.' - 'J.K Rowling's Description of Harry' - to enable students to demonstrate that they can: 'Know how language, including figurative language, vocabulary choice, grammar, text structure and organisational features, present meaning.' - 'Severus Snape' and 'Ron Weasley' - to enable students to demonstrate that they can: 'Study setting, plot, and characterisation, and the effects of these.' - 'Vocabulary Inspector' - to enable students to demonstrate that they can: 'Learn new vocabulary, relating it explicitly to known vocabulary and understanding it with the help of context and dictionaries.' Plus many, many more activities (the booklet is 24 pages in length!) I've also added it as a PDF in case the formatting differs on your computer.

Media Audiences for A-Level and GCSE

Media Audiences for A-Level and GCSE

The two schemes of work share a lot of content, so you don't really want to buy both separately. You could just buy one and then adjust for delivery, however I have made these adjustments to suit my classes already. If you teach both A-Level and GCSE then getting both is a good idea. Main differences are grades to levels, some of the more advanced content has been removed or replaced in the GCSE scheme and some of the tasks have more age appropriate resources. I have also included a digital mark book which can help for tracking of assessments.

Digital Markbook with 6 assessment points per year group - KS4 - Years 9,10,11 - significant groups

Digital Markbook with 6 assessment points per year group - KS4 - Years 9,10,11 - significant groups

This digital mark book is designed to replace the hand-written columns found at the back of a teacher’s planner. This should help make schools go paper-less and also cut down on teacher’s admin time. You can enter up to 6 assessments per year group for years 9, 10 and 11. Each assessment can be renames, you can change the 'out of score' which will automatically update percentages. You can set the corresponding levels for each year group and the sheet will provide you with average target grades, pie charts and flight paths. You can then use this data to inform your tracking.
