PLC - The Challenge of Resource Management (Personal Learning Checklists) AQA Geography (4 Formats!)

PLC - The Challenge of Resource Management (Personal Learning Checklists) AQA Geography (4 Formats!)

This download includes 4 Personal Learning Checklists for GCSE Geography (AQA) and covers the topic of 'The Challenge of Resource Management' (Section C). I have broken the topic down into 4 separate PLCs: Resource Management, Food, Water and Energy. The download includes 4 different versions of PLC for you to choose from! Each with slightly different reflection/target-setting activities.This means you can give students the PLC at different points in the year without it being too repetitive and boring for them. For the sake of your convenience this download includes a ZIP-file with organised folders aswell as the individual files. A single-slide PowerPoint is included: if you wish you can copy and paste this slide into your lesson, it contains instructions (and a timer) for your students). This double-sided A4 worksheet is great for: -Revision lessons -AfL -Fostering teacher-student dialogue -Directed Individual Reflection Time (DIRT) -Exam preparation This is an ideal tool for your students to help them keep track of their learning, and help you monitor the classes strengths and weaknesses. It serves as a highly efficient form of self-assessment. The first side is a PLC with two ways for the student to rate confidence for each of the sub-topics and the second side features other useful measures that allow teachers to gauge a student's confidence and reflective abilities. The worksheet: -Allows the student to see clearly what they need to know for the exam. -Allows the student to communicate to their teacher how they can be best helped. -Gets the student to analyse their progress in relation to their target grade. -Encourages students to reflect in a structured manner on their necessary revision focusses. -Gets students to establish both a revision and an exam technique focus.

Can You Handle The Truth?

Can You Handle The Truth?

Society seems to want to withhold the truth and make everyone believe that they are smarter than what they are and that their behavior is based upon circumstance, their environment, or lack of therapy or medication. Facing the truth about their abilities and work ethic can put a student back on track, and help them choose a good vocation, and understand and how they need to improve academically and behaviorally. This one hour presentation will give teachers the tools to confront students without condemning them and help them help students to evaluate their efforts and work to realistically look at their performance.

13 Simple Anti-Bullying Activities

13 Simple Anti-Bullying Activities

Bullying has become an epidemic in our schools. However it is defined, bullying is not just child’s play, but a terrifying experience many American school children face every day. It can be as direct as teasing, hitting, or threatening, or indirect as exclusion, rumors, or manipulation. During the past decade, bullying has become more lethal and has occurred more frequently than it had in the previous two decades. Cyber bullying with the use of cell phones, the computer and the social media have created an environment for our children where they can be bullied at any time and in any place. The recent suicides by some of the victims of bullying have gained much media attention have proven further that, bullying can no longer be explained away, as some adults are inclined to do, as a normal part of growing up. Bullying has only harmful, not beneficial, effects for the target and the perpetrator- even the bystander. Many children in our nation’s schools are robbed of the opportunity to learn because they are bullied and victimized daily. Bullying exacts a terrible toll on children, and the scars can last a lifetime.
