Inspired by Dr. Gianfranco Conti teaching approaches, I have a created a PPT template for teachers to input their desired vocabulary.
The activities include:
Spot the Errors
Spot the Intruders
One pen One dice
2-3 lessons (depending on your time allocation) of Mi Barrio using Conti’s MARSEARS approach.
This resource was used with a Year 10 class in the autumn term to recap and consolidate KS3 vocabulary whilst introducing new GCSE content.
The lesson has a sentence builder and the following activities:
Beat the Teacher
Break the Flow
Spot the Intruders
Spot the errors
one pen one dice
This CPD resource reviews two chapters from the "Making Every Lesson Count’ book- Explanation and Modelling
The main aim is to demonstrate how through expert explanation and effective modelling leads to great performance. It also looks at dispelling misconceptions and explores two approaches to modelling.
The CPD can be delivered in 45-60 minutes.
The CPD has a starter which pinpoints the importance of explanation and modelling.
The CPD was used for teachers in an international school setting, taking into consideration, bilingual and EAL learners, discussing BICS and CALPS.
A resource that was created for a 15 minute Teaching and Learning forum.
The resource entails the following;
introduces and explains what Kagan is
explores the key principles of Kagan and how these can be incorporated into everyday Teaching and Learning.
presents 10 takeaway ideas which can be used in any classroom
The session is interactive and teachers are shown explicitly, step by step,how the structure can to be used.
A taster lesson for Year 6 students on transition day to the secondary school but could be used with Year 7.
Conti’s MARSEARS approach is implemented. There is a strong emphasis on speaking, focusing on phonics, practising vocabulary and becoming confident through speaking activities and games. Higher level vocabulary from KS4 has been used to stretch and challenge pupils.
