EYEOFTHEFLY

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.

The original 8,000+ word magazine article (1993) which preceded the 1996 non-fiction book and 2007 American biographical drama survival film written and directed by Sean Penn. The book is a brilliant example of investigative journalism and details the adventure-fuelled and tenacious life of Christopher Johnson McCandless, also known by his self-attributed title: Alexander Supertramp.

ELECTRIC WORD - UNSEEN POETRY ANALYSIS (Dedicated to 'Prince' Rogers Nelson)

(0)
A piece of poetry written as homage to Prince, aka Prince Rogers Nelson (June 7, 1958 – April 21, 2016), an American singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and record producer. This piece combines words and lines from Prince's lyrics - could be used in schools for the purpose of showing alternative poetry which combine the lyrics with the more traditional form. I was really into Prince as a teenager, aged 11 when the film Purple Rain was release in 1984. At the time (and still) I was influenced by anything different/unique and I was particularly captivated by American TV and film. As I writer I respond to the internal and seem to express more as an internal requirement, i.e. I have to pour out on a regular basis. This has led to compiling poetry, plays, books and anything involving The Word. Go crazy!! This is the 100th resource I have uploaded. The resource Author is available to provide any further information if required by teachers/schools on this or any resources. Kind regards Tor
YOU ARE SUPERB - POSTER

YOU ARE SUPERB - POSTER

(0)
Poster used when mentoring/working with unemployed adults who attended Gateshead College over a four-week period. They all had strengths but many had accumulated so many layers of loss of self-belief and severe barriers to learning. This poster, together with a wide-range of 'business' resources, was designed as a motivation tool, in order to explore the 'superbness' in each individual. This type of positive affirmation tool, together with some emotionally-intelligent response to viewing their situation through fresh eyes, really did assist their journey. Why shouldn't we celebrate our superbness, in a reality picture where, quite often, it is only our faults and weaknesses that are examined? If others will not, then celebrate it yourself! Or email me at eyeofthefly@hotmail.com and I'll tell you myself.

ALTERNATIVE EDUCATION - EYE OF THE FLY (A BROCHURE)

(0)
In 2001 I worked voluntarily for 4 years to create and establish a registered charity, called Eye Of The Fly, sourcing a premises (a formerly derelict factory of 10,000 square feet) and transforming it into a facility for alternative education - mainly through visual and performance art and with embedded literacy through activities such as Film, Graphics and Acting. This brochure describes what became a 12-year journey, working with a team of more than 60 quite amazing tutors, across multi-local authority areas and more than 5,000 young people, through in-house and outreach activities - see the now very basic website at www.eyeofthefly.com which leads into a variety of charitable endeavors and experiences.
