Activity 6: Effects of Climate Change THEN: Before computers, we used interactive notebooks to engage our students and keep their notebooks organized and accessible. This however required a lot of material and the unwelcomed task of lugging them all home with you to mark. But we used them because they were effective and allowed us to effectively assess our students understanding. NOW: Why use digital interactive notebooks? As prices decrease, many schools are moving towards a 1:1, computer-student ratio and are becoming digital, the way we teach needs to keep up. You don’t even need a class set of computer, a personal device (cell phone, laptop, tablet, etc. will work just as well).

Waste Curriculum KS4

Waste Curriculum KS4

A bespoke curriculum for KS4 on the topic of Waste. The unit contains 4 lesson plans (each lesson available in 15 minute, 30 minute or 60 minute format). Each lesson begins with a short 3-5 minute film to engage in the topic and then explores a range of questions and discussion points, encouraging students to develop critical thinking and empathy skills. Lessons contain a range of multi-media resources to support learning ideas and contain clear instructions to guide through the lesson. Lessons have been designed to complement SMSC learning objectives and match core National Curriculum PSHE specifications in value-based learning. Focused on tolerance, respect and global citizenship, lessons allow students to explore their own opinions and values, make connections to those around them and practice listening and empathic engagement. QUESTIONS EXPLORED: • Where does our rubbish go when we throw it away (because there is no such place as ‘away’)? • Who should be responsible for the rubbish we are making? • Why do we have so much “stuff” in our lives and who is telling us that we need it all? • What is happening in our oceans and how responsible should we be for the waste that is accruing? • How is our relationship to waste defined by the country in which we live? • What does it mean to live a ‘zero-waste’ life and how can we learn to do this? AIMS AND OBJECTIVES Each lesson starts with a short film which serves as the platform for the lesson’s discussions, allowing students to engage firstly with the ideas raised in the film and then develop insight and engagement in the topic. Students will practise skills of critical thinking & questioning, deep listening and empathy building. Lessons will examine some of the global issues of waste production and removal, understanding the cycles of production, consumption and destruction and that we are involved in. Students will examine the roles of the individual and government in tackling waste, unpicking the notion of ethical consumption and understanding the impact of sustainable living on people and planet. Watch a short video introduction to the unit here:

Beast from the East. Snow day work on Weather & Disruption

Beast from the East. Snow day work on Weather & Disruption

The video can be used by students from KS2 to KS5. It is Geography focused but can be used for critical thinking (for the second task option). The video asks the questions of how have we ended up with so much snow and also about who is affected. For the latter question students are asked to give an analysis as to the impacts. This can be an open-ended task for home/snow work or as a class task with more guidance from the teacher. Tasks: Choose ONE or BOTH questions to investigate and present your findings. How has this weather occurred? Use diagrams and chains of reasoning. (Note the plurals!) What are the consequences of the weather for the people of Britain. Again use chains of reasoning in your analysis. The cold weather seems to have affected the microphone. Apologies for the sound quality in places. #BeastFromTheEast
