Really good to get teachers thinking about more effective marking strategies. Looks at DDI (Data Driven Instruction) and RAG rating to assist in more effective and meaningful feedback to students. I've had to remove some images of students from the presentation, but am sure you could add your own to personalise this presentation!
Students have to conduct fieldwork at 3 school locations and make a decision about a new seating area. Opportunities to measure both microclimate factors and also complete an EQI. Can be modified if you do not have anemometers, thermometers or a rain gauge!
I have had to remove several school specific slides showing school policy on behaviour - it's be easy to slot yours in! This presentation is good CPD, particularly for NQTs, or as a general reminder about consistent expectations and some strategies for good behaviour management
Part of the introduction to this ecosystems unit, students can make links between soils, climate, altitude and specific ecosystems e.g. as altitude increases, climate cools and becomes more inhospitable, ecosystem will change. Specific exam style questions also includes plus a video link.
Students are introduced to the many ways in which humans interact with the environment. Included a research template for students to collate different uses of specific ecosystems (access to the internet necessary)
Investigating the different characteristics of the layers of TRF vegetation. Can be run as independent research or done as a carousel activity. Students have a template to fill in re. each characteristic layer.
Assessment covering PIXL 1-7 of ECOSYSTEMs (global distribution, food chains, interdependence of climate, altitude and soils, uses and misuses of UK ecosystems) the accompanying Ppt gives student "walking-talking" advice on how to read the command words, and what to include/think about for each question. A good way to introduce GCSE-style assessment
2 lessons. Guided teaching and learning exercises to help students to read and understand Gersmehl's nutrient cycle. The first lesson provides the "learning pit" experience, and the second lesson is a more thorough and guided walk through reading a Gersmehl Model component by component
