Improving SPAG for All Ages - 16 views

  •  
    "The teaching of grammar has changed completely in a generation. While formal teaching of spelling and punctuation have been a mainstay of the classroom, just a few decades ago there was very little teaching of grammar. Many pupils formally encountered grammar through the study of other languages.

    Now SPaG takes up a large part of the primary curriculum, but have secondary colleagues noticed a difference? In this session we are discussion how to improve SPaG skills and usage at all levels of schooling and beyond."

Language Teaching: A Practical approach by @Natalieburdett9 - 7 views

  •  
    "As I stood in the school hall, during an assembly on National Languages Day, I felt such pride, but equally astonishment at how the children had embraced the task of saying hello in as many languages as possible. I watched in amazement as the 34th child stood up in front of the school to share his knowledge of yet another greeting from a different country. I don't know whether it was the sheer volume of children or their confidence whilst standing in front of the school and speak a different language that struck me most, but whatever it was, made me reflect on how I had come to be in this moment."

Mathematics with a Twist by @RTBCoaching - 11 views

  •  
    "I began my personal journey into the world of Cubing when I was attending Regis University in Denver, Colorado in 2009. My senior thesis project involved devising a cryptosystem using the Rubik's Cube to encode and decode messages. Although my involvement with the Rubik's Cube waned post-graduation, it was rekindled shortly after I became a secondary teacher of mathematics in 2014. I had several Rubik's Cubes in my possession from my college days and these decorated the shelves in my classroom. I recall these puzzles catching the eyes of many curious pupils. After months of traditional curriculum presentation, I determined that my students were in need of a novel lesson, one that would ignite a passion for problem-solving. This lesson would involve the colourful and alluring hexahedron puzzle on my desk: the Rubik's Cube."

Research: Teens who were severely bullied as children at higher risk of suicidal though... - 3 views

  •  
    "Teens who were severely bullied as children by peers are at higher risk of mental health issues, including suicidal thoughts and behaviours, according to new research in CMAJ(Canadian Medical Association Journal).

    "Our findings showed a general tendency, in about 15% of the children, of being exposed to the most severe levels of victimization from the beginning of their education until the transition to high school," writes Dr. Marie-Claude Geoffroy, McGill Group for Suicide Studies, McGill University, Montréal, Quebec, with coauthors. "Those children were at greater risk of debilitating depressive/dysthymic symptoms or anxiety and of suicidality in adolescence than less severely victimised children, even after we accounted for a plethora of confounders assessed throughout childhood.""

Teachers Are Stressed: Trust me, I'm married to one! by @johnkaiser13 - 23 views

  •  
    "Students typically feel during the semester that they are the only ones who are "stressed out". Well, I can safely say that this is NOT TRUE by any measure. How do I know? Because I am married to a professor of chemistry. Here are a couple of 'end of the semester' observations for students to ponder."

Back To School After Holidays: Teacher Survival Guide by @richardjarogers - 26 views

  •  
    "I happened to be very ill for almost the entirety of the three weeks that I was off school for Christmas. Bad luck I guess, but I still managed to squeeze in a 3-day trip to Jeju Island, South Korea (highly recommended). I didn't get everything done on my list that I wanted too, but I did manage to get a few items checked off (including writing a reference for a former colleague - so pleased I could that done)."

As Seen Online… by @ICTmagic - 23 views

  •  
    "Create links & auto generate QR codes on paper strips to glue in books to show pupils when their work or a display has been shown on social media or on your blog. Great for parent's consultations and evidencing for others. But more of all, the pupils love it! Adaptable so you can add your own social media icons."

Mindfulness in the Classroom by @Ed_Tmprince - 24 views

  •  
    "The development of mindfulness has, at its heart, the reduction of stress hormone levels. Teaching children a number of Mindfulness strategies allow children to find the ones that best meet their needs and successfully reduces their stress and anxiety.


    Massage and the power of touch are naturally relaxing and are ways to reduce these stress hormones.

    Maria Hernandez-Reid is a researcher at the Touch Research Institute. She says that the lowering of stress hormones not only reduces the feelings of anxiety but also supports a healthier immune system."
