Social Media Profile Templates: EDITABLE

(0)
Social Media Profile Templates - 'all about me' or write about fictional characters / famous people! The use of social media is very much a part of students’ lives in this day and age. Use this to your advantage in your lessons by encouraging them to tell you and their peers all about themselves at the beginning of the year or writing about a famous person or character from a book, using a format they love and are familiar with: social media! In this pack you will find ‘all about me’ templates for 3 different social media platforms and all text is editable. You can give all 3 for your students to complete as they each cover different elements, or you can pick and choose which they complete: the choice is yours, or theirs! You can use these to learn more about your students at the beginning of the year and first day of school. It is also helpful for other students to read these and learn more about each other and find common interests too!

Performance Management: Teachers' Standards Evidence Binder

Performance Management: Teachers' Standards Evidence Binder

(1)
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!

Well-being Journal for students and teachers

Well-being Journal for students and teachers

(0)
Make it your mission this year to take your life back with this well-being journal. Use for yourself or issue to your students to help them keep a journal of their life so they can reflect as well as set targets and track their progress to build positive habits. We’re all so busy and we give so much to other people that self-care often goes on the back burner. It’s crucial we take care of our well-being as it affects the way we feel and think, the way we cope with life’s challenges and how we can make the most of our potential.​ If we neglect to make an effort to take care of our well-being we can find ourselves stressed, jaded, unfulfilled or feeling trapped. After getting overwhelmed with life as a teacher, I started to set and track my progress in habits I wanted to create, as well as journaling. It has been essential in helping me form good habits and take care of my emotional state too. By recording my journey, I have been able to spot patterns in my mood over the course of a year and I’m now able to plan ahead, manage my life effectively and look after my well-being. With this journal, you and your students can have that same control and emotional freedom! Journal includes: 70 pages Every page is hand rendered in zentangle style for mindful colouring Monthly journal pages for brief journaling Weekly journal pages for brief journaling Daily journal pages, both with prompts and plain for more detailed journaling Prompts encourage you to focus on achievement, self-care and future thoughts Daily tracker with 4 point system to monitor and review well-being each day Monthly gratitude jar keepsake to record daily joys 12 different zentangle themes for each month to add variety 4 different types of trackers: mood, sleep, exercise and one for your own habits​ Benefits: It’s so easy to get caught up in day to day life that your well-being falls by the wayside but having somewhere to record your thoughts, feelings, memories and emotions puts these in the forefront of your mind ensuring you focus on them. Journaling has been proven to reduce physical disease symptoms and anxiety, enhance self-esteem and increase self-awareness. It can improve your self love and help you become really in tune with your own thoughts and emotions. Writing engages both the left and right side of the brain, enhancing problem solving capabilities. When you journal, you can go back and identify patterns to help you in the future as well as identify areas of personal growth to help you celebrate your successes. Overall, promotes well-being by allowing you to monitor your mental, physical and emotional wellness.

UCAS / Job Reference Writing Guide

(0)
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!
