I have been teaching since 2012 and have a passion for creating interactive resources which can easily be differentiated. I enjoy making PowerPoints to engage pupils in my lessons and ensure that all the tasks are relevant and exciting to the topic being taught. I teach History, Classical Civilisations, PSHCE and General Studies. In addition to this I am also the Career Coordinator at my school and have begun creating numerous schemes of work for Years 7,8 and 9 and drop down days.

Students Self Reflection Sheet: Pupil Progress chart (and faster marking)

Students Self Reflection Sheet: Pupil Progress chart (and faster marking) This progress chart is a great resource for all year groups to reflect on what they have learn in an individual topic. Students also reflect on who they have helped to learn a piece of information enforcing the idea that students can cement their learning through teaching others. This also helps to speed teachers marking up as there is a tick box from 1-5 for a comment on, effort, understanding and SPAG and finally a space for a teacher comment. This has sped up my own marking and the students have found the feedback easier to use and access. If you have found this useful you can find a bundle of resources to speed up your marking whilst providing students time to reflect on their learning here: Students Self Reflection and Progress Bundle – cut down your marking
