Mnemonics are tools that aid memory. The aim of mediamnemonics is to generate a range of mnemonics specifically designed to make media revision far more effective. Tried and tested on Year 11 students at an Essex academy, they have been created by an experienced media teacher with 22 years of media subject leadership who holds an MA in Film and TV studies. English resources have been created by a teacher with 16 years of teaching experience in a secondary school.

The Evidence Based Lesson Plan

(0)
Rather than wasting time on gimmicks, the latest educational fad or relying on hunches and guesswork, the Evidence Based Lesson Plan template is based entirely on the latest research about what actually works in the classroom. The key findings from Barack Rosenshine's review of cognitive science and classroom studies ('Principles of Instruction - Research Based Strategies that every teacher should know') are used to create an easy to use four part lesson plan template. Each component of the plan is clearly linked to the research to give the teacher every chance of delivering a highly effective lesson. The template also builds in differentiation by encouraging the teacher to think about their class as three distinct groups - lower, middle and higher ability. The resource is made up of a two page Word document and PowerPoint template: Word Document Page 1 - the lesson plan template. Page 2 - the research, clearly linked to each component of the lesson. Please note - this critical, detailed explanatory page is not visible on the preview images. Powerpoint Template A basic template ready for content to be added. Prompts on each slide. See the notes panel at the bottom of the screen in edit mode for the links to the research findings. The research paper is referenced in a recent TES article which can be found by pasting the following link into your browser: https://www.tes.com/news/school-news/breaking-views/are-these-7-pillars-classroom-practice

Place differentiation at the heart of your lesson planning with this easy to use template. This word document enables you to quickly plan your lesson on one side of A4, whilst encouraging you to differentiate activities, outcomes and support. This is ideal for all subjects and student ability levels, and especially for those teachers struggling to come to terms with differentiation in their lessons. It also helps structure the lesson into the starter, main activity, assessment for learning, and the plenary. 1 x lesson plan template in word format 1 x instruction sheet in word format
The Power of Mnemonics - PowerPoint lesson demonstration

The Power of Mnemonics - PowerPoint lesson demonstration

(0)
This easy to follow PowerPoint demonstrates the power of mnemonics in a very practical and dramatic way. In one 45 - 60 minute lesson, students will amaze themselves with how well they can remember the 17 battles in the Wars of the Roses (in the correct order!), as well as the names and colours of the two families, and the century they took place in. This tried and tested lesson never fails to convince students about the power of mnemonics. One student recently went from 6/22 to 21/22 in one 45 minute lesson.

PREVIEW IMAGES AVAILABLE AT https://sites.google.com/view/mediamnemonics/home An entertaining PowerPoint presentation that introduces students to memory techniques (mnemonics) to help make their revision more effective. The 18 slide presentation includes links to YouTube clips on memory as well as the work of Daniel T. Willingham, B.A. Ph. D, a Professor of Psychology at the University of Virginia. It also includes a fun activity that demonstrates the power of images when revising. This would make an excellent start to the revision process, or even an assembly for Year 11 students as they begin the exam season. The final slide also provides links to a range of YouTube videos that both teachers and students would find useful - or inspiring! Further support and advice is available via mediamnemonics@gmail.com.
