Active Learning: Concept Cartoons

Active Learning: Concept Cartoons

A PowerPoint presentation which explains how "Concept Cartoons" can be used by teachers as an active learning resource. Specifically, Concept Cartoons are very effective in teasing out preconceptions or misconceptions. They therefore relate neatly to the constructivist theory of learning. Concepts Cartoons can be used in any subject, and this presentation gives examples from across the curriculum. The presentation can be used for individual teacher learning, or in a training workshops for groups of staff.

Planning template - programme of learning and teaching

Planning template - programme of learning and teaching

A planning template which can be used by teachers of all ages and stages. It can be used to plan and keep a record of: - learning intentions - success criteria - details of content - learning and teaching activities and resources - assessment This template should transform how you plan and save you a lot of time in the long run.

Global Warming: fact, theory or lie?

Global Warming: fact, theory or lie?

A presentation looking at climate change, focusing on what the terms "global warming" and "the greenhouse effect" really mean, and addressing misconceptions around them. Students are encouraged to think critically about what they're being told in the media about two alternative theories of climate change: that it's being caused by humans, or that it's natural. The presentation begins with a concept cartoon., which encourages students to think about their pre-conceptions of key ideas, before moving on to a sections designed to ensure they understand the difference between facts and theories. It then moves on to look at facts, theories and myths around global warming and the greenhouse effect, before moving onto the alternate theories of climate change.
