Example evidence for teaching standards & bulletsQuick View

Example evidence for teaching standards & bullets

Example evidence for TS standards, including highly detailed examples of acceptable evidence for each 'bullet point&' (or sub TS-element) for the 2012 Teacher Standards... I found it difficult to ascertain what &';evidence' counts for each TS & TS-sub-standard, so I have collated acceptable lists from my University training, NQT local authority guidance and mentor guidance into this handy document. Useful for NQT&'s, mentors, student teachers and others. *** Added a condensed, cleaner version in Nov 2014 *** Mike.

12 Smart Steps to Reduce Workload: by @TeacherToolkitQuick View

12 Smart Steps to Reduce Workload: by @TeacherToolkit

Teachers’ workload is too high. Teaching has always been demanding, but why has the issue reached epidemic proportions? At a time when teacher recruitment and retention is under severe pressure, school leaders need to understand the issues, challenge their own thinking about their policies and be open-minded to new ways of working in schools. This resources considered what drivers have aligned to create this situation and what government, OfSTED, school leaders and teachers should be doing about it. During the session, we cover in detail the three areas which teachers raised as causing their biggest workload issues: marking, lesson preparation and resources and managing data.

End of Term Quiz #2Quick View

End of Term Quiz #2

After the popularity of my first one, I thought I'd share my latest one An interactive, End of Term Quiz. This has a variety of rounds - TV Intros, Children's Literature, Film, Science, Dingbats etc. There's nothing really time-sensitive here: although there is a slight Christmas flavour to the movie round. It's aimed to be accessible across the Key Stages - I've done it with 7s (with a few clues) up to 13s. It should happily take up a lesson - the answers are included at the back.

World Book Day QuizQuick View

World Book Day Quiz

Another one of my 'interactive' Quizzes - this is #3! The pattern is the same as my other ones - so TV Intros, Who Am I?, Films, Dingbats etc. However, all of these have a focus on World Book Day - so all the questions are linked to books. You could, obviously, do this at other times though! It's aimed to be accessible across the Key Stages - I've done it with 7s (with a number of clues!) right up to my Upper 6th English. There are rounds my younger class did much better at!!! It should happily take up a lesson or a tutor period - the answers are included at the back. You can pick up my other two quizzes - in the same format - here: End of Term Quiz #1 End of Term Quiz #2
