Word of the Week PowerPoint

As literacy coordinator I created ‘word of the week’ presentations which were shared with KS3 and KS4 in order to promote the development of new vocabulary across the school. The PowerPoint goes through the etymology of the word in a way to help students remember it. Form teachers devlivered the presentation to form classes and pupils were encouraged to use the word in all their lessons, where appropriate.

The Power of Words

[https://youtube.com/channel/UCvF3WCXm6oXstd2_cioRskQ] For those of you wanting to close the vocabulary gap, I’ve set up a YouTube channel aimed at giving parents and children easy ways to expand their vocabulary. Each week, I post 2 videos explaining why words are so important and what you can do to collect more words in everyday life. The more words we know, the more choices we have in life and the better our chances of a happy and successful future.

The Power of Words: Inclusive Language

This is a presentation and activity I made up for a group of year 8’s, but it could be adapted for many years. It looks at the importance of inclusive language. It goes through words you should not use, and why. How to deal with non-inclusive language and how to address it with other people. Finally it has a stop-light activity where students choose a non inclusive word, why we can’t say it, and alternatives to that world.
