General Discussion / New AQA GCSE options presentation?
« on: January 17, 2016, 01:17:23 PM »
I realise that this is a big ask but has anyone already prepared anything? We have options evening this week.

 I realised two things when I sat down to do it
1) I really don't have the time with other (Ofsted threatening) deadlines and my family is already very fed up with me working all the time - bang goes the New Year's resolution!
2) Someone else has probably already done one!

I do have the usual videos but would love to show them the topics etc.
Thanks very much!

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!

I've used these lots of time before but they seem to have disappeared - any ideas? Please help - need on Thursday!

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?
« on: June 04, 2014, 05:52:13 PM »
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!

General Discussion / Forest change mapped by Google Earth

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?

It's not just Apple though.

And they're turned into ejunk...

General Discussion / Michael Gove to Teach for a Term
« on: June 15, 2013, 08:05:47 PM »

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!
