Hi recently retired from full time teaching. I spent the last 9 years in sixth form teaching (psychology and sociology) with a little PHSCE and KS3 science on the side. before that I worked as a behaviour support consultant for 8 years in all key stages and nursery. I have led inset on all aspects of behaviour management. I have also worked in PRU and EBD settings and have and still do individual mentoring. As someone with mild Asperger's I am particularly interested in all aspects of ASD.

Role Play Game to Introduce Marxism in Sociology

(0)
I have run this game each year for about 7 years. I developed it because I found that most sixth form students are victims of “false class consciousness” and need a vivid understanding ofa different perspective not given to them by the media. They believe meritocracy without evidence but won't approach Marxism with an open ming (I find) For this game you will need large amounts of stickle bricks or other construction blocks (ebay or car boot sales are a good source) copies of the role play cards and a large box of Heros or wrapped sweets of some kind). You will need to print out labels for The factory and shop. The aim of the game is to illustrate the role of the worker in the economy and what happens when they do not share in the wealth created by their labours. The PPT also contains some other optional slides to introduce Marxism which can stimulate discussion before or after the exercise.

How to work with parents on behaviour targets as part of Behaviour Plans

A document explaining how to help a child meet their targets by focussing on the positive. These are the opening words of this 3 page document with useful diagrams: When you look at a child’s target sheet it is easy for the eye to be drawn to where they have failed and the negative comments that are sometimes there. If you comment about these the child will focus their energy on where it went wrong and their “failure”. It is a bit like saying to someone balancing on the edge of a cliff “Don’t look down!” Their eyes and whole body are drawn to the very things you don’t want them to do! If this negative focus continues, it can then build into feelings for the child such as “I got it wrong” “every time I try I fail” “I can’t do it”. This then gets translated into “I am a failure” “I am bad”. The overall effect is a spiral where the child behaves how he/ she thinks they are perceived and the behaviours we are trying to change become worse not better. The child may even fail to show his/her target sheet to you or “lose” it. Being “solution focussed” turns this on its head. It works on where the child got it right and builds on that. The approach relies on noticing, commenting on and magnifying where the child has “got it right” and subtly ignoring the failures. (This doesn’t negate the need for sanctions for breaches of accepted standards of behaviour).

How to write a basic long sociological essays

Many lower ability A level students get "pushed" toward sociology because there is a perception in some quarters at least, that it is an easy subject.It is not, especially if literacy is a weakness. I have used this presentation along with some work sheets I developed to help weaker students grasp two essential elements of the sociological writing: 1. presenting competing arguments 2. writing in an analytical/ detached style

Template for writing "Examine" essay with worked example for Family topic

The framework was not an original idea but the worked example is. This is a teacher written essay, written in the simplest, most straightforward style. It is not elegant or advanced, but good to illustrate a structure for those who have to learn how to write good essays. An examine essay requires two or more different perspectives given equal weight. It does not require one perspective which is evaluated. this is the title and introduction: Examine ways in which childhood can be said to be socially constructed Childhood, seen as a separate existence from adulthood has not always existed. Similarly ideas about childhood: its length, characteristics and how children are regarded vary from place to place. When a characteristic such as childhood varies between cultures and at different times it is said to be socially constructed. This essay will examine the ways in whether concepts of childhood are entirely socially constructed TIP: I give my students 4 coloured highlighters, one for point of one perspective , one for each subsequent perspective , one for correctly idetified theoriests and theroetical terms and one for concluding or summative commentary. we go through the essay comparing the colour patterns at the end. It is a great confidence booster for them
