Think time PowerPoint timer, 3 seconds to 2 minutes. 20 slides.

Think time PowerPoint timer, 3 seconds to 2 minutes. 20 slides.

Ensure you embed appropriate think time into lessons with this fun think time, ppt timer. From 3 seconds to 2 minutes the clouds slowly float out of the screen. Add prompts such as key words into the thought clouds to differentiate. Simply copy and paste keeping sources formatting. Allowing think time is shown to increase the length and correctness of responses, the number of "I don't know" and no answer responses decreases and volunteered, appropriate answers also increases. Teachers who embed think time in lessons show questioning strategies which tend to be more varied and flexible and decrease the quantity and increase the quality and variety of their questions. This leads to asking additional questions that require more complex information processing and higher-level thinking on the part of students.

Thinking Skills Think Outside of the Box Series ~ Quick Starts

Thinking Skills Think Outside of the Box Series ~ Quick Starts

Today’s students are the problem-solvers of the future. If they are taught factual knowledge only, they tend to respond with conventionally correct answers rather than exploring creative solutions. All students can learn to think critically and creatively.Students need to be able to judge, analyse and think critically in order to participate fully in a democratic and technological society. This can be achieved if the teacher recognises the value of thinking skills and provides opportunities for the thinking processes to be modelled and developed.This ‘Think Outside of the Box’ series provides teachers with straightforward ideas and activities to help students develop these skills.In this pack you will find 80 quick start task cards – 4 cards per page. I have provided 3 options for printing.These ‘quick starts’ are ideal warm-up activities for the beginning of a lesson. They should be used flexibly and can be used in any order at any time. As these task cards are intended for repeated use, I would suggest laminating them for durability.When to use: (10-15 minutes group/class)• at the beginning of a lesson• during circle time**********************************************************CONTENT• Cover; Teacher Notes• Brainstorm Task Cards x 8• How Could You?

What happened in our world? April 23rd, 2017

What happened in our world? April 23rd, 2017

This is a simple crossword aiming to encourage students to ask about what's happening in their world. Download and then print this simple and easy to use PDF and save time preparing for the next Economics, Geography, Business, or PSHE lesson. The puzzles are excellent for a lively and informative home room period or even a substitution lesson when the absent colleague hasn't left enough work. You save your precious time and the students get to learn about last week's news events. In this week's puzzle... protest marches in Venezuela against economic failure and all around the world in support of science. No blue lights on cars in India, no food stalls on Bangkok streets and no dogs and cats to be eaten in Taiwan. Presidential elections in France and an early election in Britain. A national strike in French Guiana and a murder in the Maldives and very disrespectful behaviour at the tennis. And North Korea created a lot of news last week too. It was an interesting week. The puzzles seem to work best when students work in pairs or groups of three, so they discuss the clues and therefore the events of their world. They work even better if the teacher does the puzzle with the students. There are 2 BONUS puzzles: one is about Asia's countries and capitals and the other is about Africa.
