It consists of an interactive powerpoint presentation that introduces the topic of values and starts the thought process of what values really are and why they are so important to identify on a personal and group level.The resource also contains a three page worksheet that has over 50 values listed. The group go through and identify their own values and then as a team agree on the top 5 values going forward.

It is also a good team building activity that tests their negotiation skills.Sets the stage for an excellent learning programme to commence with motivated learners.

Teacher CPD: Working Towards Outstanding Teaching

This CPD package can be delivered in one or two hour-long sessions depending on the level of discussion that is initiated. This package works well as a discrete session or as an introductory session to further CPD sessions developing best practice. I have included a presentation, activity resources and further written information which includes the rationale behind each slide and activity including any discussion points that may enhance your delivery of the session. Session objectives: • Consider the qualities of an outstanding teacher and discuss what creates the spark in an amazing lesson.• Familiarise yourself with what Ofsted considers to be outstanding teaching and learning.• Discuss how your own school judges data and the achievement and attainment of students.• Discuss what outstanding practice of various teaching and learning strategies looks like.• Prioritise which strategies will have the biggest impact in your classroom.

Critical Thinking in English: Strategies, Resources, and CPD Materials!

Critical Thinking in English: Strategies, Resources, and CPD Materials!

These stimulating and varied resources, strategies, and ideas have been designed to aid educators in equipping young people with vital critical thinking skills through the learning of English. In a rapidly changing and ever-more competitive world, it is of the utmost importance that children leave school with the learning skills and mindsets needed to take on wide-ranging challenges and obstacles. Learning to think critically can enable them to become rational, reflective, and resourceful learners, who are able to comprehend information beyond the 'surface' or 'initial' level. These skills of tackling misconceptions and given truths, and critically analysing and evaluating what they are presented with, can also be of vital importance in developing a deep understanding of English concepts.Grounded in education research, the initial section of this pack contains a number of resources that will be of use to CPD leaders, including links to clear explanatory videos and theory. The second section of the resource pack contains strategies, ideas, and resources for teachers looking to build English skills in critical thinking through the key areas of comprehension, SPAG, and vocabulary.All images and videos are licensed for commercial use, and where necessary are cited on the final slide of the PowerPoint presentation.

Questioning in our classrooms CPD/ Briefing/ Inset

This is a presentation I used for our fortnightly Learning and Teaching Briefing. One of the strands of Quality First Teaching is the appropriate use of teacher questioning, and this briefing was aimed at stimulating thinking on the part of our teaching staff about planning for and making question probing. There are a variety of ideas included in the presentation and one supporting document on Socratic Questioning. The presentation can be used to stimulate thinking and discussion and can support an extended inset on developing questioning within your school.
