Performance Management: Teachers' Standards Evidence Binder

Performance Management: Teachers' Standards Evidence Binder

Performance Management: Teachers' Standards Evidence Binder (Includes most up to date standards from June 2013) With Performance Related Pay now in full swing for teachers, it is more important than ever to document the evidence to prove that you are meeting the standard requirements which enable you to earn a pay rise, or at least remain at the top of the scale. Oftentimes during the appraisal meeting season in September, we are reflecting on our achievements from the previous academic year but it can be difficult to remember everything we have done if we rely only on our memory! It is also often confusing to know where we can find evidence to prove we have met the standards; this is why I created this resource. Tired of being less than inspired by dull blankets of text and confusing layouts of these standards, I decided to design something a little more aesthetically pleasing and easier to navigate and organise evidence with. With this 20 page binder, you can clearly see each of the standards and you have a simple and efficient system of both making quick notes and recording hard evidence of how you are meeting the standards. So get organised with your performance management and ensure you get the pay you deserve as a teacher! **************************************************** • If you choose to download this resource, please take the time to leave a rating - I do really value your feedback and I always look forward to reading what you think about my resources!

Character Education VALUES Super Bundle (all 10 units included!)

Character Education VALUES Super Bundle (all 10 units included!)

This Character Education on values super bundle is a crucial element for strengthening the core curriculum and ensuring our students are building strong character and values in order to help them succeed in school and for the rest of their lives - talk about having an impact!? This 20% off bundle includes all 10 character units: • self-esteem • resilience • self-respect • empathy • courage • honesty • compassion • respect • tolerance • leadership Sadly, teaching teens about character and values is often put to the bottom of the pile, yet did you know that it is the foundation for all success? If you want your students to do well in your class, I believe you need to be teaching them positive ways to think and act, now while they are young! It will make them more confident and resilient and ensure they have the self-belief that they can succeed. Product includes: • 160+ slides of PowerPoints - all are fully structured so no prior experience is required to deliver them. The text is also editable for you to modify as needed! • 90+ pages of Printables to go with each unit - graphic organisers go perfectly with the PowerPoints if you want your students to record their thoughts as you discuss. There are also fun bonus homeworks included for each unit! They are in a PowerPoint format so they can easily be converted to Google Slides for paperless activities if preferred. • Over 240 unique discussion cards to develop speaking and listening skills in class. Your students will learn the following in each characteristic area: • how to define the character trait • how to analyse their own and others’ character • where they might need to demonstrate said characteristic • signs of positive character trait • signs of negative character trait • what can affect change in character • self-awareness of their own character • actionable steps to build character *This set includes 10 characteristics in a super saver bundle: save 20%* In order to ensure these important skills can be integrated into our busy timetables, these resources have been designed to make it as easy to deliver as possible! Each unit includes a structured PowerPoint that guides the class through discussions about each of the 5 characteristics and effective skills on how to strengthen them. No prior knowledge or experience from you is required! On top of this, the PowerPoint text is editable so you can modify the content to suit your students’ needs, should you wish. Also included are bonus graphic organisers which are supplementary to the PowerPoints: they work as helpful tools for students to record their thoughts in an aesthetically pleasing way that can then be used for bulletin board displays etc. You will also find a set of discussion task cards in each unit to spark conversation and thoughts on each characteristic: these can be printed off for each group of students, or they can be used in whole class discussion – it is up to you! So help build your students’ character / values and encourage them to be all that you know they can be! Great for Character Education, Social Skills, Health Class, Life skills and PSHE (Physical, Social, Health, Education) lessons.

Cyber Bullying Awareness: Posters, Task Cards & Activities

Cyber Bullying Awareness: Posters, Task Cards & Activities

Do you want to educate your students about the dangers of Cyber Bullying? It is a rising problem among teenagers and young people in this age of social media, so this resource will offer your students the opportunity to consider the dangers and effects of cyber bullying by encouraging them to discuss and reflect on realistic scenarios. I have used this resource on different groups of students from year 7-10 and it has proven effective for all ages. It's interesting that each age group has brought out its own conversations from this resource. I find it shocking how many young people (especially those below the required age of 13 to even have a social media account) are suffering from cyber bullying online and don't yet have the skills to handle it. This resource has made a significant difference to my students and I can only hope they go on to spread the word to others! I hope that my resources save you hours and hours of time: something we always sacrifice so much of as teachers. ❤ ********************************************************************************************************* • If you choose to download this resource, please take the time to leave a rating - I do really value your feedback and I always look forward to reading what you think about my resources!

UCAS / Job Reference Writing Guide

UCAS / Job Reference Writing Guide

If you are a form tutor or are required to write a reference for your students, then this resource will really help you out! This should help make the process of writing UCAS / Job references for your students much easier for you, whilst giving your students the opportunity to take ownership of their reference. This is especially helpful if you are a new tutor and haven’t had the opportunity to learn much about your students yet, as they will tell you everything you need to know with this resource! Oftentimes, students can be very modest with their achievements and abilities and so this resource will really help to tease out their best qualities enabling you to simply lift content from their notes into your own reference. This is a 2 page resource which could be printed double sided. One side is for students to fill out and the other is a guide with some examples to help direct them and ensure they consider all their achievements and qualities. I hope this saves you lots of time and makes the reference writing process much smoother and more efficient! ************************************************************************************************************************ • If you choose to download this resource, please take the time to leave a rating - I do really value your feedback and I always look forward to reading what you think about my resources!
