Teacher training - Question Practice

Teacher training - Question Practice

(0)
As Trainee-Teachers there isn’t anything like being asked a question, just as you’re getting into your stride, and it completely throws you off kilter. It’s because we don’t get live practice of having to hold 2 or more thoughts in our heads at once, whilst under fire. This resource contains the template of an Activity that leaves the Learner one step (or more) behind the questioner, and allows Learners to encourage this within themselves. As they become more adept, you push them another step back. This is good for a 15 minute starter, a filler, or, once mastered, it can be used as an off-the-cuff response to the class losing focus. As a resource, I’ve given all the theory and thoughts that went into the Activity, which would give Trainee-Teachers a bit of debate and, hopefully, encouragement to create their own resources.

Riffing the Material - Memory, Recall, and Theatre
jackkenleywrightjackkenleywright

Riffing the Material - Memory, Recall, and Theatre

(0)
Learners are asked to engage in a bit of riffing, in response to questions posed, to encourage flexibility and confidence speaking in front of the group and increase the enjoyment and relevance of the materials to Learners. This style of activity asks Learners to tangent and digress, giving various responses to the question, none of which should be correct, until prompted to feedback the correct response. Getting Learners to engage can be difficult, if digressions and tangents can be included then this impulse is reduced, and Learners’ recall should improve based upon the fun that they can have with the game, whilst making sure Learners are focussed upon the tutor, awaiting the cue to come back to answering the question.

Primary Source Activities - Hopkins -Witchcraft -Witches

(0)
Primary Sources - Extension or Regular Activities centred around the working period of Witch Finder General, Matthew Hopkins, offering further depth to Hopkins’ own methods, the nature of English Witchcraft, and Popular Attitudes toward Witchcraft. Formative assessment, discussion, and 1-1 engagement is encouraged by the use of these, allowing Learners to directly engage as you assess. If given as homework, these can encourage further discussions or add nuance to discussions already present, whilst offering Learners the opportunity to do some Independent Learning. Some of these can be fun to offer, without citation, and ask Learners to correctly cite or reference them through their research of the text online.

English Witchcraft Primary Sources

All primary sources are helpful for relating the period to a class separated by so much from events, here is a series of Primary sources that encourage Learners to engage with the materials and subject matter by offering them a view of social history from 5 particular periods and producers. Offer these to Learners to highlight and annotate, as they see fit, and these sources can be unpacked via discussion or linked back to previously taught materials.

Source Use, Validity, and Research Methodology

(0)
The use of sources can be daunting, as Learners are so distant from the periods that they might encounter and study. These resources offer a chance at formative assessment of Learners’ progress, alongside 2 handouts that offer advice and tips, to Learners, on the use of sources in their research. These have been tested on Levels 2 and above, and have been useful to Learners of all levels in History, with a little careful watering down, to facilitate Learners’ efforts and model correct usage.

Person Centred Care - Teacher Notes, Resources, and Activities

(0)
Here are a list of resources, from a Humanistic perspective, focussing upon Carl Rogers’ works in Person Centred Care. An introduction to is a mind-dump activity, getting learners to tell you all they know on the subject. Tips have been taken from the cited website, condensed, and arranged for easier digestion. The module review is a summary of Rogers’ works, aligning all materials to demonstrate the intrinsic links between sessions and materials covered. Case Studies offer Learners a direct chance to interact with the subject matter and opens the floor for later discussions or nuance (Teacher’s Notes are a helpful little bonus i’ve put together for you, to further encourage discussion and offers the tutor a chance to get involved by having secret answers to engage with the class with)
Self Development Resource Pack

Self Development Resource Pack

(0)
Self Development is a constant in the modern workforce, where employees are constantly asked to improve, reflect, and improve again, throughout their careers. Here is an introduction to self-development, a Mind-dump activity, asking learners to share their previous experiences and allow for a barometric check of the class. Easter break materials were created to ensure independent learning occurred and was a nice piece of homework for the class to engage with. Eggert’s Motivational Test allows Learners to self-assess their own motivators, which should encourage further good practice and self development. Overview sheet summarises learning and offers Learners the chance to view correct terminology used in a correct way, offering a model of their future usage of key terms and ideas covered in sessions.
Tudor and Stewart Family Trees

Tudor and Stewart Family Trees

(0)
Visual displays of Tudor and Stewart family lines and successors that may be used as wall displays or handouts for Learners. These worked well as handouts, where we crossed out HenryVIII’s wives as we passed them in the syllabus, and gave Learners a visual association of where and when we were up to, with insights of who and what was yet to come.
