What key point do you want them to remember? Now translated into 8 languages. Pin your plan? Contact me @TeacherToolkit

    As a teacher trainee just starting I'm probably not the best to comment. However it would be helpful to add a few explanation notes along with powerpoint slides clarifying terminology and giving some extra advice. Other wise good and I hope it will help me with lesson planning and keep me from spending too many hours on it!!
