10 BALL GAMES: SUBVERSIVE TEACHING IN 21ST CENTURY. We innovate, constantly. We see the extraordinary in the everyday. We know that real education is about feeding the soul, not just passing exams. We sometimes see children with problems, we don't see children as problems. We re-draw the boundaries of the possible. We survive, despite the slings and arrows of outrageous policy. Freely sharing resources gives us time to do these things. Please help yourself, and play on.

Visual imagery illustrating Nazi Propaganda and how it made genocide possible

(11)
This is a great resource that I put together for a presentation at uni years and years ago. I have used it with all different age and ability groups in different schools. it should be self-explanatory as i have added notes to indicate the kind of things dicussed throughout the slide show David - Slightly harsh my man, to rate it on the basis you couldn’t see it! Its probably your firewall, as it has been downloaded many times - not that that helps! If you email me at jordansnotes@yahoo.com I will email it to you, size permitting.

Then pairs are made - 1 from each interpretation. Using guidance given, they write an analytical answer exploring the extent to which Haig deserves the title 'the butcher of the Somme'.
Pecha Kucha y9 big homework competition

Pecha Kucha y9 big homework competition

(0)
Pecha Kucha is a Japanese powerpoint competition format. It is based on 20 slides auto timed to last 20 seconds each. I have reduced this to 10 slides for KS3. My reasons for doing this are: 1) It allows for personalised learning 2) it gives homework more of a meaningful structure than a 'finish off...&' homework, which is always tempting under pressure 3) it should help students develop research and presentation skills they will need later 4) it should preclude &';reading from slides' presentations 5) it should help to develop constructive criticism as a skill
