Ebola 2 lessons

Ebola 2 lessons

This is 2 lessons about Ebola the more recent outbreak and clean up efforts. It looks at development indicators along side the disease. The second lesson focuses on a TED talk by TV's doctor Javid who worked for MSF on the clean up. The teacher reads the story and the students draw what is being said to them. They really connect with the story in this way and have very positive results.

Plate tectonics + Volcanoes

Plate tectonics + Volcanoes

I used this lesson for an interview lesson and the basis was to review and recap plate tectonics and then do a whistle stop tour of a volcanic eruption case study (Mt Merapi). Within the lesson convection currents (as a starter task) and then onward the structure of the earth and briefly plate tectonics are briefly reviewed and explored using hyperlinked video and maps/images. The volcanic eruption case study is introduced, as with a reminder on primary and secondary effects with a consolidation learning task to categorised some key primary and secondary effects. On the supporting differentiated workshet there is a challenge task. Plenary task - to summarise learning from the lesson. FYI - the lesson was a huge success and I got the job!
