Steve Soames, special needs co-ordinator at Marlborough primary school, Plymouth, recommends two sites as "excellent for classroom use and background reading".
"www.jennymosley.demon.co.uk contains free lesson plans produced by educational consultant Jenny Mosley and her team. Some great starting points for circle time lessons, based on classroom practice.
"Anaward-winning article on using discussion skills on www.scre.ac.ukspotlightspotlight4.html, the website for the Scottish Council for Research in Education, provides a strong theoretical background, historical understanding and some excellent suggestions on using group work in secondary tutorials. It reminds me of what it is about education that I cherish."
