Anyone happy to share their topic map through KS3? I've been teaching all KS5 for a while. I have made a topic map, but would love to compare if anyone could share? I'm not planning full SOW at this stage, but happy to share later on. It's an Academy so we don't need to follow Nat Curr, but Geog has been a disaster there for a while and kids haven't done some basics. Any help most gratefully received!

General Discussion / Anyone swapped from Edexcel A-level? Spare textbooks?
« on: September 12, 2014, 11:53:44 PM »

I've just moved into my new post and there are no textbooks for A2 Edexcel. AS are doing AQA, so they've bought textbooks but obviously for only one year, there's no budget for new books. Does anyone have any spare textbooks please? I have 4 to share between 28 students!! Thanks so much!

General Discussion / ScoopIt - several pages?

Has anyone managed to get several pages with ScoopIt in any way? They've changed the account permissions so you can only have one - unless you pay. With budget cuts, there's no way to pay. Any ideas? Thanks for any advice!

Fascinating. The Amazon doesn't appear to be the area of greatest loss, though of course the projection could have something to do with that!

General Discussion / Apple products anyone?

General Discussion / Michael Gove to Teach for a Term

Never happen, but be good to see how many signatures it gets. I think a week would be more realistic, as long as he has to do all his planning, marking, paperwork, meetings, extra-curricular himself.

General Discussion / SOW - unreasonable?
« on: June 15, 2013, 12:10:03 PM »

For the third year running, my college is asking for a SOW done in a totally different format from the year before. Has anyone else had this? To me it seems excessive. The new SOW is basically ALL the planning for the whole year and they are asking us to complete them over the summer, ready for a possible inspection in September. The idea is that each contains LPs as well so that you don't need separate ones. It took me 2 hours to complete the first three weeks on one of the 5 SOW I need to do.... I can't use the ones they demand in class as they are very text heavy and I am a visual learner so have to do my own anyway - SOW and LPs. Any advice welcome!

Here we go again..

So he backed down on the name of EBacc, otherwise exactly the same?

General Discussion / General Qn about Lesson obs
« on: February 23, 2013, 06:25:09 PM »
In my college, in line with new no notice inspections, we get notice an observation will take place, but not when in a whole week. Is that usual? We used to be told which lesson it would be.

I think it is unnecessary stress. We are still graded on paperwork etc, even though the new Ofsted obs do not. As a one person department, I never have time to do full typed up LPs for every lesson but that it what they expect -of course I plan my lessons but in a personal short hand in my planner and within my SOW. With my students I often have to adapt lessons when i find they haven't done something in KS3 or 4. Having been off on sick leave for 3 weeks, I am totally stressing out! I have got the new visual LPs which I love - but doubt our SLT will accept them.
