Written Communication with Parents - CPD Session!

Written Communication with Parents - CPD Session!

I delivered this CPD session to all members of our staff team who maintain regular contact with parents and other stakeholders, in a bid to improve the quality, accuracy, and clarity of our written communications. I'd recommend that the session takes about 1 hour to 1 hour 30 minutes to deliver. We had received some negative feedback comments, regarding our communications, varying from examples of poor grammatical accuracy, to instances in which the tone of emails, letters, and other forms of correspondence were perceived as rude. It is surprising how common this is across schools, and how little training is provided on these forms of interaction. Following this training, we are receiving far fewer complaints, and many staff members now keep the help-sheets pinned up by the desks to refer to when communicating with parents. Participants learn through: - Participating in a fun pub-style quiz to eradicate common spelling, punctuation, and grammar misconceptions and errors; - Considering the role of parents, their needs and interests, and what they expect from their child's school, as a means to understand why schools sometimes receive difficult communications; - Reading and analysing examples of poor written correspondence, considering how both the tone and the accuracy can be improved; - Exploring different language strategies to create a personal, polite tone within emails, by considering the connotations of different words; - Taking away help sheets that can be referred to whenever written communications are being drafted. The resource pack includes: - Colourful and engaging whole-session PowerPoint presentation ; - Examples of written communications for participants to analyse; - Quiz answer sheet; - Accurate Written Communication help-sheet; - Polite Written Communication help-sheet. All images are licensed for commercial use, and are cited on the final slide. (Please note that the only section of the PowerPoint that you may wish to modify is with regards to the distinct features of parents at your own school - Aside from this, the resources are good to go!)

@AllRoundRes Fidget Spinner Pleanary... SPIN IT!

@AllRoundRes Fidget Spinner Pleanary... SPIN IT!

Firstly, if you choose to download my resource(s), please take the time to leave a rating (as I know most of don't really bother) - I do really value your feedback. ***** FOLLOW @AllRoundRes, to stay up-to-date with the latest resources and news! ***** #GetYourLearnOn #AskAllRes I created this resource as a lot of students use fidget spinners, but are distracting in the classroom environment. But with this resource students have the chance to use their fidget spinners in a fun and engaging way, but is also beneficial to you as a teacher because you can assess your students learning! This resource gives you the opportunity to see how well your students have learnt; what they enjoy, what did they struggle with, what do they need to work on more. Thus, allowing you to put extra practice in next lesson. In total, there are 8 different cards with 7 activities on each, so 56 different plenaries in total. Each card has a set of instructions, explaining to students what they need to do. With a table where they can write in their responses if they wish. This is a colourful and bright resource, which I bound to grab student’s attention! I would suggest printing these cards of in colour and laminating them to get maximum use off them. To spin the plenary students can use fidget spinners, or they can use any other type of spinning device, if you prefer. Let us know what you and your students thought… Tweet us pictures, ratings, how you used them and what your students though of this resource… @AllRoundRes… Use the hashtag… #AllResPlenary ********************************************************************* If you have any queries, questions or concerns, then please email allroundresources@gmail or alternatively write a comment describing your needs, where I will be happy to help! ***** Be sure to follow me, to keep update with my most recent uploaded resources! *****
