Group Roles Badges and Job Plates

(0)
Group roles badges and plates that allow you to easily structure cooperative learning / group work so that each child has a specific responsibility that is crucial to their success. This pack includes role plates for the tables as well as badges that they can wear around their neck while taking part in the group work both with descriptions of what the role duties are. The five roles are: - Agent Manager - Agent Time Manager - Agent Volume - Agent Materials Manager - Agent Encourager When children have a specific role that they are responsible for they seem to be much more focused and more involved in their learning. I normally change the roles each time they do group work so that every child experiences each role. Contents: - 5 x job plates with descriptions - 5 x double sided job badges with descriptions

Contents: - 5 x job plates with descriptions - 5 x double sided job badges with descriptions ------------------------ Classroom Management: Self Help Poster and Bookmark This resource is used to help children to become more independent learners. Do you wish your children would think for themselves and know what to do when they don’t know what to do, well this is the resource for you! We decided we needed to try help our children become more independent, so we gave each of them a bookmark which goes through a checklist as to what they should do if they get stuck as well as putting the poster up in the classroom. It has saved us hours of our time! Contents: - 1 x Poster - 1 x bookmark ------------------------ Classroom Management: Table Jobs / Duties This is a great resource for classroom management, and the children love it too!

They must move their name-tag on the thermometer according to how much effort they are putting in. It fits in well with Growth Mindset. It can be used in a few ways. Self Reflection: At the end of or during a lesson the children place their name-tag onto the effortometer depending on how much effort they think they are putting in. Teachers Assessment: During the lesson the teacher can move names around depending on how they are working. I sometimes give a reward token (see our store) if a child reaches the top of the scale. This has made a huge difference in my class as children are starting to become aware of what they are capable of. I hope it does the same for you! ------------------------ Interactive Literacy Display & Help Cards: Improving Writing These display resources and help cards will help your children become more independent with improving their writing.

Know your data rights: Your right to data protection

(0)
“Know your data rights” is a self-contained classroom topic that introduces students to the safe handling of personal data. Many people may need to hold some personal data about us, for example, a school or college, doctor, hospital, employer etc. We may also have access to other people’s personal data in the future through work or a social activity so it is important to know some fundamental aspects of how to handle it correctly and legally. This topic supports the learning outcomes in the Association for Careers Education and Guidance (ACEG) framework for career and work-related learning at Key Stage 4 but can be used with a range of groups depending on their needs and abilities, and provides good evidence of lesson planning. Two files are included with this topic. The first file is a lesson plan, worksheets and suggested running order for the activities. The lesson plan also includes differentiated learning goals, reflective questions and a “before and after” review of learning relating to this topic. The second file is a slide show presentation which can be used with a whiteboard or pc/laptop and projector, to add structure to the lesson for students. The slideshow has the same running order as the lesson plan, and includes modern and striking imagery to appeal to young adult learners.
