This workbook has been designed as an interactive, thought provoking and interesting guide to life for those disenfranchised students that need that extra motivation and support in school and designed by a school SENCO. It has 14 pages packed full of questions, activities, puzzles and tasks, all designed to make students question, what am I doing this for? It can be used with students who have been removed from mainstream lessons/placed in an isolation room, students that have arrived on a placement from another school, or even just to help students look at what they want their future to be! It has been highly successful in it’s current setting, and works best when a student is working individually, or as part of a group with teacher facilitation, it gives an opportunity for you to learn more about a student, what motivates them, makes them tick, and what you can do to support them where perhaps others are currently failing. Designed as a running document with fun rest breaks in between, student feedback has been overwhelmingly positive! Especially the equipment Maze!

Student's response and reflection on their work - before the teacher marks their work

This can be used across the school to encourage student to reflect on their literacy development and self-editing skills. If you print two slides per 1 piece of A4 it can be easily glued in after a student has completed the work and before the teacher marks it. It is useful for ensuring students are critically assessing their own work so they become independent learners. Also, it’s good for showing progression if you’re planning on getting students to re-draft their work after you’ve marked it.
