Growth Mindset Display

Growth Mindset Display

The idea of the display is to encourage students to change their vocabulary. The display is firmly based on the work of Carol Dweck and the idea of fixed and growth mindsets. The display is based on famous individuals who had growth mindsets and using their vocabulary to enhance the learning of the students and to encourage them to put in effort and to try. There is also an opportunity for a mistake and success board as seen in the picture as the central theme of the display, this is where you as a teacher can highlight both successful work and good mistakes. The idea being both really good work and work with lots of mistakes make it to the board, and the students see mistakes and successes as one and the same - There is an image attached to show how this works.

Reading Cycle Professional Development Notes

Reading Cycle Professional Development Notes

This product contains the notes from a professional development session that I attended. It deals with teachers being able to ensure that each student is effectively comprehending text during close reads. To be made clear, during close reading sessions, it is possible that instructors may get what is called a “false positive” or indication that a student understands a concept of the text when they actually do not. **False Positive Prevention Method - ** occurs when students are able to write about and discuss a text with some accuracy after gleaning an understanding of a text from what teachers and peers says about the text, NOT from their own understanding about the text. The Reading Cycle Strategy prevents this situation by taking the READ-DISCUSS-WRITE method to the next level through the following steps: Read-Discuss- Read Read-Write-Read Read -Write Discuss Read-Write -Discuss Read-Discuss-Write-Revise Each of these steps are explained within this product. Thanks for your purchase. We appreciate your support!

A comprehensive KS3 intervention writing skills programme with staff training.

A comprehensive KS3 intervention writing skills programme with staff training.

I am pleased to share with you a full intervention programme that I used for several years to tackle under-performance in writing at KS3 - a key areas of focus for a lot of pupils. The programme begins with a very brief training session that you deliver to your staff. This is an introduction to the extra, mini assessment that pupils sit at the start of each half-term in various skills - sentence types (SP1), punctuation (SP2) and spelling (SUM1). Pupils sit the assessment at the start of the half-term and resit the SAME assessment at the end of the half-term to see if they have improved their points score. The assessment is a 10 minute task. There is no assessment for spelling in SUM1 so a score out of 5 will need to be given for pupils’ book work at the start of the term and then at the end. Ensure that your staff mark the ‘first attempt’ within a few days so pupils know their score and can fill out their ‘record sheet’. Pupils stick the record sheet in their books and there is space to set achievable targets. Emphasise to your staff that the marking is really quick. Get staff to record scores out of 5 on a simple database. Pupils will then repeat the SAME assessment at the end of the half-term to see if they have improved their score. Pupils get a score out of 15 at the end of the year. Throughout that specific term’s focus, ensure that your staff work on these areas (sentence types, punctuation, spelling). I have included a full intervention mini scheme for all of the specific areas - this includes mini tasks on sentence types and punctuation that are thorough and engaging. These tasks allow pupils to make accelerated progress in these areas and can be used in conjunction with any scheme of work and can be inserted into the start of any lesson. I have also included two withdrawal intervention sessions that can be delivered to small withdrawal groups near the end of the programme. I have also included a full and comprehensive training PowerPoint that can be used to train staff on intervening effectively within the classroom. This intervention scheme is an absolute must-have for any Head of English and is accessible for all pupils of all different range of abilities. By the end of the programme, a huge majority of KS3 had made accelerated progress in writing and the scheme set Year 9 up with a high-standard of writing in preparation for KS4.

Stop Asking and Start Telling: How To Get Kids To Do What They Are Told To Do With a Good Attitude

Stop Asking and Start Telling: How To Get Kids To Do What They Are Told To Do With a Good Attitude

STOP asking and Start Telling. If you want students to comply you have to stop giving choices and tell students exactly what you want them to do. Choices are something we all want and should be offered at times, but when there is a specific behavior you that you want your students to exhibit allowing choice only promotes confusion on the part of the students and frustration for the teacher. Compliance before choice is something that all students should understand. Students can’t say and do what they want when they want to do it. This 13 page guide provides instructions on how to do it with illustrations from the authors life and provides the language that will empower the teacher and create a positive school climate.

Still Looking For A Teaching Job? Follow This Checklist

Still Looking For A Teaching Job? Follow This Checklist

Teaching is the dream profession of many young graduates. It gives them a chance to be heard and share their knowledge with others. It’s a great profession for those who have leadership skills and want to be social. If you have applied to a number of teaching positions and still haven’t become successful, here’s a checklist for you: Consider moving Instead of limiting your job search to your neighboring schools and colleges, send the applications to big schools even if they are far away. If you get selected, you can always move to another city. After all, a job at a premiere college or school will be a great move for your career. Get your paperwork ready Make sure you have your resume, cover letter, and other documents ready. Proofread your resume several times to make sure it does not have any mistakes. Be available on social networks Your presence on social media networks like LinkedIn can help you build connections. If you are connected to administrators from colleges and schools, there are chances that they will prefer you over others when it’s time to hire. Attend job fairs Attend the job fairs held at your alma mater along with those at the neighboring colleges and universities. You have better chances of being selected at your alma mater than the others. Prepare for the interview There are some questions that are asked frequently. For example, “what can you bring to this school” and “how do you plan to influence the students”. Come up with witty and professional answers for these questions. Share vignettes Be open during the interview and share some positive vignettes about your previous experiences. These could include student achievements, classroom management, and unique teaching methodologies that you follow. Follow-up Sometimes the college or school might take extra time in hiring. If you follow up using emails, there are higher chances of you being hired. When you email them, state again that you would love to work with them. Stay positive It’s a tough economy but teaching positions keep opening every now and then in various schools and colleges. Don’t give up hope and you’ll soon bag a great teaching job. That’s it for now Busy Educator. Until next time, Talk to each other, support each other, take care of each other.’ Marjan
