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.

NPQSL Final Assessment Log (2016) with appendices

NPQSL Final Assessment Log (2016) with appendices

After completing my NPQML, I decided to embark on the SL course and what a journey it has been. I have poured my blood, sweat and tears into this document and received some outstanding feedback in regards to both the project and the completed log. A superb course for anyone interested in senior leadership within the education sector. Included in this package comes all 22 pages of the log with all appendices attached. Within the appendices are my 'Project Action Plan', 360 Diagnostic report and SLT and Governors report. All references are also highlighted in the log. Pseudonyms are used for school and individual identities. All I can say is that I wished I had the opportunity to see an example such as this when I was writing as the IOE provide very little in terms of examples. If you do download, please leave feedback :)

Projects and Teamwork Bundle

When planning a project at work or school, it's important to get team members prepared for their roles, tasks and responsibilities within the team. The resources contained in the bundle are all you need to help you accomplish this. The three that I would start with are: Identifying your Values - choose values as a group Workplace issues: Brainstorm, problem Solve and Create Smart goals Team collaboration - important for all to understand how teams work. These resources are tried and tested in the workplace by my learners with amazing results for project outcomes.

You Rock Recognition

You Rock Recognition

Use this FREE resource with the Lesson Tuning Protocol and MAP to grow your professional learning community or SURVEY-PLAY-ENGAGE to bring gamification to polling. These rock-notes are harvested from the Atlantic Ocean and their smooth surface and palm size are easy to reproduce. They allow individuals to carry around your kind words in their pocket to serve as reminders of their hard work. The rocks are prepped with white and black spray paint. The edges where the white and black meet are lined with a paint pen you can pick up at your local art supply store. Minutes later the surfaces are dry, and you can scribe the note. Use this message or design your own. Soon your building will be rocking too!

NPQML Final Assessment

The complete final assessment submitted as part of the NPQML course. I have excluded sensitive details of names and schools including the action plan which was sensitive in material (don't forget to include your action plan!). The project was submitted in 2016 with a very good rating given for the project. The project was focused on raising attainment in lower band groups through various interventions across various departments. I hope you find it useful!
