Improving SPAG for All Ages

Posted: January 17, 2018, 10:23 pm

Comments:

  • "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." - Martin Burrett

Language Teaching: A Practical approach by @Natalieburdett9

Posted: January 17, 2018, 7:36 pm

Comments:

  • "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." - Martin Burrett

Mathematics with a Twist by @RTBCoaching

Posted: January 17, 2018, 7:14 pm

Comments:

  • "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." - Martin Burrett

Research: Teens who were severely bullied as children at higher risk of suicidal thoughts, mental health issue

Posted: January 15, 2018, 9:58 pm

Comments:

  • "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.”" - Martin Burrett

Taking the time to think — The Learner's Way

Posted: January 14, 2018, 8:20 am

Comments:

  • It seems that we never have enough of it and the result is a feeling of constant pressure to do things quickly. As a result, we fall into a pattern of making quick decisions, with incomplete information and then proceed to take hasty action and seek short cuts. Our busy lives, the business of those around us, the schedules we set ourselves and the constant stream of distractions and interruptions ensure we have very little time to do things well and we never seem to get things done.  - Nigel Coutts

Teachers Are Stressed: Trust me, I’m married to one! by @johnkaiser13

Posted: January 13, 2018, 10:22 pm

Comments:

  • "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." - Martin Burrett

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

Posted: January 8, 2018, 10:20 pm

Comments:

  • "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)." - Martin Burrett
