Preparing Students to Present

Our year 7 students have a couple of major presentations this semester – in English and Science. The points in this infographic are both simple and pertinent. I hope to put this infographic up in each year 7 home classroom to serve as a reminder to both teachers and students

Student Centered Instructional Methods

Another one of Mia Macmeekin’s great infographics. This one offers inspiration to teachers with a range of 28 different ideas for promoting active learning in the classroom situation. These suggestions are general in nature so they can be applied to various types of lessons and learning areas. There are brief statements included to give starters to teachers for planning lessons.

Students are the focus in in the learning processes mentioned here. They involve individual learning methods, group work and communication between students and some include using various technologies.

This is a great overview different methodologies that could make any classroom management more inclusive and welcoming to all students.

What makes a good teacher in 2016

We have recently had parent teacher conferences, some professional learning activities and staff appraisals, for a number of our teachers, occur at this time each year. This has prompted some discussions about what teachers do and what should they do.

I found the following infographic interesting and thought it might form the basis for further discussions. It would be interesting to hear what my colleagues think about what attributes are need to be a good teacher in today’s schools and what it will take to be so in the future.
