Teacher Excel Markbook

Teacher Excel Markbook

This excel spreadsheet can be used to record student's grades. Using a 1-10 system you can record their marks and it will automatically average the grade. If you enter J, K or L in capitals (which is converted into a smiley face) in the effort column it will also average their effort grade. This provides formative feedback and allows progress to be monitored. This is a concept and could easily be adapted for specific use, i.e. Assessment without levels, BTEC etc.

Detecting Religious Extremism - Downloadable Test

Detecting Religious Extremism - Downloadable Test

The quiz is a simple test that looks for indicators of religious extremism and exposure to Wahhabist Islam (the branch that has become associated with terrorism). If you fear individuals in your school may have issues in relation to religious extremism, this is the test for you.It should NOT be used as a whole school test: this would risk inflaming islamophobia in your school. It should be used with individual students with the utmost discretion and privacy, and only where previous evidence deems suspicion reasonable and rational. The ideal person to administer this test is the school counsellor or someone in a position of trust in relation to the individual student.The questionnaire is a tool for exploring basic attitudes to Britain, Western values, religious tolerance, and extremist attitudes. The odd numbers are all positive indicators, the even numbers are negative indicators ; you should be able to create a total score for a given student if you wish to create data using this test.Ideally, once the test is complete, a teaching professional or counsellor can discuss the students answers and clarify their meaning.Professionals are advised to handle this matter with the utmost delicacy.

Frankenstein: Victor Frankenstein - The Tragic Hero

Frankenstein: Victor Frankenstein - The Tragic Hero

This engaging and detailed lesson aims to improve students’ understanding of the lead protagonist in Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein: Victor Frankenstein. The lesson places a particular focus upon how Victor fits the role of a tragic hero, and it studies the actions and behaviours that lead to his inevitable demise. Students also analyse how Shelley uses the character of Victor to present key messages about religion, unchecked ambition, and the treatment of the ‘others’ in society.The lesson follows a step-by-step learning journey, in which children learn through:- Defining the role of the tragic hero and exploring how Victor personifies these features;- Understanding prevailing attitudes towards religion, ambition, and appearances, and investigating how Victor would have been received considering these ideas;- Reading and understanding extracts in which Victor's fatal flaws are evident, and considering how they are relevant;- Analysing how Shelley utilises Victor and his demise to present key messages to readers;- Linking knowledge of time, place, and author, and relating these to specific areas of the text;- Peer assessing each other's learning attempts.Included is:- Whole lesson PowerPoint - colourful and substantial; (including an animated Frankenstein's monster to guide them through the lesson);- Mood map - to track Victor's role in the plot and eventual destruction;- 'Frankenstein's Actions' worksheet;- Analysis template with success criteria for creating well-structured responses;- Comprehensive lesson plan.There are also opportunities for group learning, peer assessment, and whole class discussion. This was originally taught to middle-ability year 10 groups, but can easily be differentiated for groups of different ages and abilities.
