Average Rating3.71
(based on 70 reviews)

Most resources I develop are geared towards GCSE 2016-18 (AQA and Edexcel) curriculum and are practical solutions to classroom teaching. I keep most of these black and white for simple/cost-effective print. I read each novel/play/poem and break down into manageable parts. I find this most effective within classrooms where students require chunks of information they can order, in sequence. The 'study-packs' I create can apply to any book/play/poem and provide visual tools for memory recall.

A study document highlighting a range of innovative techniques and classroom additions/resources used in what could become an 'alternative' inspection focus within classroom settings. There are 34 Performance Indicators linked to a learner-focussed environment and linked to a range of items including: Emotional Intelligence; Zero Isolation; Healthy Students; Environmental Awareness and Child Abuse (Confidence in Reporting). This resource was designed in line with discussions had with a range of inspectors across a variety of education settings, from Primary to Secondary, SEN, Post-16 and in community-based training settings. The comments as feedback on the resource from inspectors was 'excellent'.

GCSE LITERATURE STUDY-ASSIST PACK - Any Novel or Play

(0)
A pack containing combined resources to create a complete study-aid for students which includes: New Word Chart / Quotation Booklet / Timeline / Visual-Mapping / Internet-Research Booklet. This prints as a double-sided 12-page booklet or could be printed in individual sections and introduced throughout the period of study. I recently introduced this with Year 9's who are studying Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, i.e. as one full pack to use alongside this text. I am about to use the same pack, with the same class, as they enter the engaging realms of Macbeth. The feedback from the pack was that the students (as a majority) felt it made greater sense to them to have all of the paperwork together and then filed in this way. We booked the IT Suite over two lessons, to introduce the Internet Research booklet and used the visual aids (Timeline/Visual-Mapping) in class with the interactive whiteboard. The Timelines were particularly effective and we printed these A3-size. One student comment was that she felt that it "provided a visual-snapshot" so she could rely on/recall a "picture", rather than words, to consider the "chronological-order of events" when she was studying, or in an exam. These tools are all available individually, but I've combined them in a single-pack and kept the cost reasonable, as I felt this could save some preparation time for teachers. Personally, I would print off the whole pack A4 and then figure the order/sizing from there, as this could easily work as a combined booklet and introduced to a class where applicable.
