Learning Style Checklist

Learning Style Checklist

A fun question-based assessment tool for students to help them find their personal learning style. This tool is most helpful for any subject area, including persuasive writing courses. There are three basic types of learning styles. The three most common are visual, auditory, and kinesthetic. To learn, we depend on our senses to process the information around us. Most people tend to use one of their senses more than the others and often we engage more than one learning style, depending on the subject. To use, print out the question cards and distribute to students.

Getting digital natives to read and write: A guide for teachers

PDF version of my book: 'Getting digital natives to read and write: A guide for teachers'. Young people today are known as digital natives. Constant exposure to digital technologies is changing the way that they think, learn and relate to others. Digital technologies mean we do, in fact, engage with the written word more than ever before, but literacy can lack relevance in young people's lives. This book explores the links between digital technologies and acquiring literacy skills. Aimed at teachers across curriculum areas and age ranges, this book offers practical strategies for supporting students to become effective readers and writers in the digital age. You will learn how young people are devleoping literacy skills, how you can support them, and how to ensure that new technologies are a help rather than a hinderance. From how to help younger children develop pre-reading skills, to how to help teenagers with the literacy skills needed for secondary school and beyond, this guide provides clear advice and is a must-read for anybody supporting young people in schools. Chapters include: Who are digital natives? Digital technologies and literacy. Pre-reading skills. Vocabulary. Becoming a skilled reader. Reading skills in older children and teenagers. Handwriting. Spelling, punctuation and grammar. Writing across the curriculum. Supporting students with SEND. Digital literacy. Author Victoria Honeybourne has a background in special educational needs teaching. She has written a number of education books. This is a PDF version of the book. It is also available in paperback and as an e-book for Kindle devices from Amaon and other online retailers.

Weekly "I can..." Objectives Differentiated Template

Weekly "I can..." Objectives Differentiated Template

Check out this awesome template that can easily be infused in your classroom to promote critical thinking, goal setting, and reflection. This can easily be adapted for any subject, grade, age, or ability. Students set their own goal for each day. At the end of the day they either reflect based on the three emojis or on the higher level templates by elaborating with an explanation. John Hatties has ample research out there that points to the importance of students knowing where they are coming from and where they are going. This is great way to transfer accountability and responsibility to the students! Let us know how your implementation goes!
