Engage your students with this free icebreaker activity - The Undead Said! This is perfect for the start of a new term, or just to get the students talking!

Even the most reluctant learner will want a go at trying to be the class hero by making the teacher impersonate a zombie! The PowerPoint contains 20 slides, each with a stunningly illustrated zombie theme. There are also 3 fun slides to get your students - and you - out of your seat and doing something a little bit crazy! Included: 20 slide PowerPoint Instruction sheet in PDF format.

The Evidence Based Lesson Plan

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
