Shamed into posting
I have never really managed to blog regularly and do wish I could get into the habit as it would be a good record of life and progress
So after pondering on what to blog about I thought I would reflect on the impact I make on teaching at the school. Often I am oblivious to the impact that I am making. On a few occasions recently I have noticed English teachers using materials that I produced a while ago for using with the Booked up books. I had produced a whole folder of activities that related to character, plot, setting etc and given a copy to each teacher. Anyway I now keep seeing teachers using the folder. One teacher said that the ideas in the folder are really good and that she uses them alot.
I have now decided that I will make the activities available through our VLE.
More and more I seem to be making my impact by helping teachers with their planning rather than with the actual teaching.
I did a session for NQTs earlier this week and was v pleased with the feedback. I gave them a number of ideas to tell students what to do with the information they cut and paste.
So all in all maybe I am of more value than I sometimes suspect
