Fun PSHE story game and lesson. Some of the words in Claire's story are wrong, students choose the correct rhyming words from a list and focus on the importance of socialising with new people by writing their own story. In Claire's story she isn't making any friends at her new school and forces herself to start a conversation. Includes a hand-drawn image and discussion questions.

Solve Systems of Linear Equations by Graphing Problem Pass Activity

Solve Systems of Linear Equations by Graphing Problem Pass Activity

Twelve problems provide practice or review solving systems of linear equations using the graphing method. Practice includes graphing equations in slope-intercept form, point-slope form, standard form, and problems with “no solution” and “infinitely many solutions”. Students work with a partner while seated at their desks. They should write in their own notebook or on the blank Answer Sheet (included). At the same time the first pair of students is working on Problem 1, the second pair works on Problem 2, the third pair works on Problem 3, etc. At the teacher’s signal, all students pass their problem in a specific direction. The students who started with Problem 2 should now pass it to the students who started with Problem 1, the students who started with Problem 3 pass it to the students who started with Problem 2, etc. The first pair of students starting with Problem 1 should deliver their finished problem to the last pair of students, or the teacher may prefer to deliver these each time. Students now flip over their new page to find the ANSWER to the problem they just finished. Students continue to work problems in order, pass problems and check their answers on the back of the next problem page until they have completed all problems included in the activity. It is important for the teacher to tell the entire class when to pass their first problem and to tell everyone where to look for the first answer on the back of their NEXT problem. After this first pass together, I’ve allowed students to work and pass problems at their own pace. Teachers may prefer to set a timer so all students pass their current problem to the next pair of students simultaneously. This activity works well in the middle of a lesson while students are actively practicing a new skill or can be used as a review. The answer key is built into the activity so students check for accuracy themselves. Teacher Setup: Print single-sided copies and slide pages into plastic page protectors to keep problems and answers together. Put Problem 1 and ANSWER Problem 12 back-to-back in the same plastic page protector; put Problem 2 and ANSWER Problem 1 back-to-back in another plastic page protector, Problem 3 and ANSWER Problem 2 together, etc. Prepare 2 or more complete sets of the activity to have enough pages for each pair of students in the class. Keep complete sets in order. It is very important to hand out problems in numerical order so the page with the answer on the back follows its problem number. As you hand out problems in order, problem side up, tell each pair of students the direction they should pass their problem when finished. This direction may vary by row if you zig-zag or “snake” up and down the rows of desks. The first pair of students starting with Problem 1 should deliver their finished problems to the last pair of students, or you may prefer to deliver these each time.

PLC - The World Around Us - Ecosystems of the Planet - OCR GCSE Geography A (4 Different Formats!)

PLC - The World Around Us - Ecosystems of the Planet - OCR GCSE Geography A (4 Different Formats!)

This download includes Personal Learning Checklists for GCSE Geography A (OCR Specification) and covers the topic of 'The World Around Us' - Ecosystems of the Planet. The download includes 4 different versions of PLCs for you to choose from! Each with slightly different reflection/target-setting activities.This means you can give students the PLC at different points in the year without it being too repetitive and boring for them. A single-slide PowerPoint is included: if you wish you can copy and paste this slide into your lesson, it contains instructions (and a timer) for your students). This double-sided A4 worksheet is great for: -Revision lessons -AfL -Fostering teacher-student dialogue -Directed Individual Reflection Time (DIRT) -Exam preparation This is an ideal tool for your students to help them keep track of their learning, and help you monitor the classes strengths and weaknesses. It serves as a highly efficient form of self-assessment. The first side is a PLC with two ways for the student to rate confidence for each of the sub-topics and the second side features other useful measures that allow teachers to gauge a student's confidence and reflective abilities. The worksheet: -Allows the student to see clearly what they need to know for the exam. -Allows the student to communicate to their teacher how they can be best helped. -Gets the student to analyse their progress in relation to their target grade. -Encourages students to reflect in a structured manner on their necessary revision focusses. -Gets students to establish both a revision and an exam technique focus.
