General Discussion / Re: Outstanding A-level revision lesson?
« Last post by gee on May 06, 2015, 09:34:20 AM »
Mine do a few things, predominantly on their own.

- sit and write answers to past papers which I mark with them during the lesson as they do each one
- essay plans in huge detail on coloured card which we then discuss 1-2-1
- read over example essays and past questions and mark them and discuss improvements

I don't do any teaching from the front as they all have different needs.  I just emphasize they need to use me as a resource and make use of the time wisely.  Mostly they sit in silence and work hard.

It might not be "outstanding" or "fun" but it appears to "work" when it comes to results!
Hi details of the 2015 RGS-IBG medals and award winners have just gone up online.  Lots of recognition for many different colleagues across the geographical community and of particularly interest for SLN colleagues will be:

OS Excellence in Teaching awards:   Andy Emms and Raphael Heath
Taylor and Francis award (for teaching and learning in HE) Prof David Lambert

Thank you to those colleagues who nominated the recipients and also a particular congratulations to all the winners

best wishes
