Character Traits of Leaders - Research & Presentation Project

Character Traits of Leaders - Research & Presentation Project

In this lesson, students identify leadership traits by researching leaders throughout history. They are provided with links to resources to help them research three individuals of their choice from three different time periods in history. Lists of leaders from each time period are provided to help them choose. Then, they use that information along with graphics, pictures and backgrounds from the Internet to create a finished presentation that explains the qualities of each leader, the similarities and differences, and add their own opinions and insights to the project as they learn how to apply leadership skills in their own life. Two versions of instructions are provided to allow the lesson to be done individually or in small groups or partners. Projects can be presented in class or included on a website for viewing. This is an excellent creative project to add to a unit in a career class, leadership class or to support a history/social studies unit. The project was created for grades 7-8 but could easily be used with upper elementary or high school students. Files Included with this Lesson • Teacher & Student Notes and Resources • Student Project Instructions, Expectations, and Grading Rubric (for individual projects) • Student Project Instructions, Expectations, and Grading Rubric (for group products)

Word Processing Wordsearch ICT Computing Starter Settler Activity Homework Cover Lesson

Word Processing Wordsearch ICT Computing Starter Settler Activity Homework Cover Lesson

Wordsearch on the theme of 'Word Processing'. Powerpoint so can be used on the board or printed as a worksheet. Includes space for students to explain the keywords and suggested extension activities. Can take 10 minutes or an hour, depending on which activities the students complete. Ideal for the start of a lesson, a quick filler, a homework, part of a cover lesson or as a plenary on the board with a whiteboard pen. The idea behind these is to get students to become more literate and think independently about the words that could be used to describe the topic being taught. The repetition of the word over and over as they look for the word is useful in remembering the terms. Often the students will pick up on things that you would not normally expect!

7 Fun Problem Solving Activities for Web Coding

7 Fun Problem Solving Activities for Web Coding

These 7 lessons were written to be delivered as part of a Scottish Qualifications Authority workshop to discuss with Computing Science teachers alternative ways to deliver web coding. They are designed to introduce fun problem solving exercises (some paper-based, some practical) and are intended to be used as lessons starters or simply to break up longer coding exercises. The lessons cover: 1. Basic Tags/Elements (h1, h2, p, title) Pupils are given cut out pieces of web content and code and must arrange the pieces on a blank A3 HTML template printout. 2. Coding Basic Tags (h1, h2, p, title) Pupils are given an HTML file with page content (as a single paragraph of text) but no elements. They must separate the text out and add tags to format the content. They are also asked to research how to create the bullet point list required by the task. 3. Division Tags (div) Similar to lesson 1 but introducing the concept of sectioning off a page using division tags. 4. Adding In-line Styles (text colour, text size, background colour, fonts) Pupils are given an HTML file, printed on A3 paper, with spaces for styles to be added. They must arrange a number of cut-out styles on the HTML file to match a screenshot of a finished page. 5. Adding In-line Styles Pupils are given an screenshot of a finished page with annotations showing colours, fonts and text-sizes used. They must edit the styles in a given file to match the finished page. 6. External Style Sheets Pupils are shown the same site implemented using in-line and then an external stylesheet. This is used to discuss the advantages of external styles. Their task this time is to edit, delete and add to the stylesheet to alter the look of the website to match a fnished example. 7. Cascading Order Pupils are given 5 A3 sheets each which shows an HTML file, a CSS file and a screenshot of the page when shown in a browser. These examples must be examined carefully and used to research the precedence order used when a browser interprets styles (i.e. In-line over-rules external, ID overrules external). This a a difficult task requiring a lot of code reading and problem solving. Level: (Beginner / Intermediate) Duration: (Around 3 to 4 hours in Total) Teaches: (See above)

This is a 3 page .pdf guide to help teachers who are new to running Scratch coding classes. It covers: timing, tips when following a project or steps, how to install or open scratch to start coding, how to start a new Scratch project, how to save a project, how to open a previously saved project, and different versions of scratch. I have also added a one-slide powerpoint which you can display on the board which sets some rules for your students before the class begins.
