Curators on the Couch, Neville Bonner - Teacher Professional Development

Curators on the Couch, Neville Bonner - Teacher Professional Development

Designed for use by teachers as professional development, this interview unpacks objects which align with content in the Australian Curriculum. Teachers understanding of these objects will be enriched further, preparing them to use the objects in classroom discussions with their students. The first of our series looks at Senator Neville Bonner, our first Indigenous Federal Parliamentarian, and a selection of his personal objects which are currently on display in the Finders Keepers Exhibition at MoAD. MoAD Learning staff interview Senior Historian Libby Stewart and discover some interesting personal stories, showing how an object can reveal but also hide a lot of information. This interview supports the cross-curriculum priorities of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Histories and Cultures. This resource is also supported by a teacher pdf resource for use in the classroom - please see our other resources on TES.

Gettysburg Address ESCAPE ROOM: Translation - Abe Lincoln

Gettysburg Address ESCAPE ROOM: Translation - Abe Lincoln

Gettysburg Address Escape Room Activity: The Gettysburg Address Escape Room will take students on a secret mission around the classroom! This escape room has students decode interesting facts about the Gettysburg Address, Abraham Lincoln and the Civil War. This is the perfect resource to introduce a famous historical speech in a fun way! The activity includes modern, easy to understand translations of Lincoln’s speech. The Gettysburg Address Escape Room has students walking around the classroom breaking codes. Students will complete a short formative that corresponds to the readings. This will ensure they are reading the content, not just solving the puzzles. The codes include ciphers, Morse code, cryptograms and a final 4 digit code based on the decoders/clues. Each clue and code is different. The codes require students to think differently to decipher or decode them. Some codes are easier than others. Some codes require critical thinking to determine what a letter/symbol stands for. Each code will reveal interesting facts or an analysis about the Gettysburg Address. The use of secret code will keep your students engaged while competing to find the final code. Students can report the final code to you. If you wanted to, you could purchase a 4 digit lock that you program, but it is not necessary at all! No props needed!! This is a NO PREP, PRINT & GO Activity! The best age range for this resource is 8+. Please look at the preview to determine if this resource works for your age group. Younger students may need some help with some of the more difficult codes. You can use the pre-labeled clues or you can challenge older kids to choose/find the decoder that works for each of the clues. A set of labeled and non-labeled decoders are included for differentiation. A “How to Decode” puzzles is also included. Once your students try one of my escape rooms, they will beg for more! In addition to learning or reinforcing the subject matter, my escape rooms encourage teamwork and critical thinking. As a “timed” challenge, students will be engaged from beginning to end. This escape room includes 12 fun, colorful signs to take class pictures with at the end of the mission. Signs include “Puzzle Master”, “She did all the work”, “Genius”, “We did it”, “I Escaped” and more! Hang the pictures in your room, send them in a parent newsletter or share them on social media  An answer key and easy to follow teacher directions are provided. Time needed: 30-60 minutes New Feature: I have included a 6 question formative to complete as proof of understanding. Many times students rush to solve the puzzles without reading or comprehending what they read. The questions need to be answered correctly before they can win!

Should teachers be armed? A persuasive writing scheme

Should teachers be armed? A persuasive writing scheme

This is a scheme designed for KS4 and Yr 9. It is a chance for them to expand their knowledge of a relevant topic as well as develop their AQA English Language skills. The final task will be for the class to draft, edit and improve upon a letter to the head teacher regarding guns in the classroom. This is suitable for any exam board but tailored to the AQA spec. It is an issue that engages all students of every ability and can easily be differentiated up or down depending on class. The scheme is designed to last for one week (5 lessons) but can be stretched further if needs be. There are opportunities for green pen activities as well as further research and debate on this topical issue.

The World News Crossword - April 15th, 2018

The World News Crossword - April 15th, 2018

The World News Crossword - April 15th, 2018 is a simple crossword based on the events in last week’s news from around the world. We create a new puzzle every week so it can be built into a weekly PSHE, Geography, Economics, English, or Social Studies lesson. These crosswords have been used with significant success in with both GATE and SEN students. The puzzles can be used at all levels of high school and middle school, as homework activities or as in-class, small-group activities. Each week there are three bonus puzzles. This week’s download includes two puzzles on climate change and a puzzle on the Amazon Basin. And of course, all the solutions are included. What happened last week? The CEO of the world’s largest advertising agency resigned suddenly. An Australian company advertised for ‘Anglo-Saxon’ staff. A forest fire resulted in evacuations around Sydney. Two Indian athletes were sent home from the Commonwealth Games because needles were found in their accommodation. Indian police rescued 70 children who were working in a jewelry factory. A Russian-built military plane crashed in Algeria killing all passengers and crew. And the US, UK, and France attacked military installations in Syria in response to a chemical weapons attack by the Syrian government. It’s less about what happened around the world and more about why. Why did the prime minister of Hungary get re-elected for a third term? Why did the US, UK and France attack Syria because of chemical weapons, but not because of ‘ordinary’ bombs? Why were 11 lions killed in a national park? Why did the New Zealand government announce that it will not issue any new permits to oil exploration companies? Why did the UK government deny entry to an Austrian and a Hungarian?
