I am experimenting with ExplainEverything as a medium for supporting learning.
This is a link to a lesson taught today with my Year 10 class and acting as support for the 6 or 7 boys who were sitting an art exam…

The next revision class in the series is on approaches to unseen poetry and includes a powerpoint of ideas for approaching Heaney’s Mid-term break as an unseen. The lesson focuses on the approach and the unseen is an optional writing task. I love Heaney’s poetry and miss teaching it – I am taking a chance to slip one into my unsuspecting “sheep” group.
