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

Role Play Game to Introduce Marxism in Sociology

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.

Can you win the healthy lottery ? a game to explore inequalities in health

Can you win the healthy lottery ? a game to explore inequalities in health

Print out the slides on cards, prepare enough packs for one between 4 students. You will need one die for each group The cards are a little like the chance cards in Monopoly. Each has a chance of adding years to life or taking years away. The game should take about 15 minutes to play, 10 minutes afterwards in discussion and completing life chances table. This can be followed by teacher input. The subject matter can be used for health unit or wealth poverty and welfare It focuses on the main sociological explanations for inequalities in health and turns them into a game of chance

ABCD - Achieving Behaviour Change Decision Log Sheet

ABCD - Achieving Behaviour Change Decision Log Sheet

This is a modified version of the ABC model which is used in a wide range of school and clinical settings to modify undesirable behaviour. It is used by staff to help them reflect on the environmental triggers for behaviour for individuals and whole groups or in targeted behaviour interventions for whole people What is different about this: The language encourages reflection on self and behaviours rather than blaming someone else. The emphasis on the language is “you” and your behaviour and the choices made. This is very important because bad stuff happens to everyone and those people who mindfully respond to situations generally get a better outcome for themselves and others. Those who externalise their problems “so and so upset me” rarely change their behaviour because they have a ready-made excuse. The drip drip drip of focus on “your choice” “your behaviour” is the only means I know of helping them realise they may not have control over what happens to them but they can control how they respond. The other main difference is that there isn’t just ABC – antecedents, behaviour, consequences but also D. Decision. When things have gone wrong in a situation it is tempting for everyone to do an autopsy. This isn’t helpful. The events are already “gone” and one the slab (to continue the metaphor). D is the “what next” “do something different” it could be setting a personal target. Or if things have gone well, encourage reflection on what well and making it “even better”. If this is about trying something different then try to change one behaviour at a time. So this takes the analysis from the past into trying to make future actions better or even better next time.
