We talk about being ‘brave’, consider the ‘why’ and asking for forgiveness after!
#10 Get involved- the more people you know in school the more you will enjoy work more. Get to know everyone- from the caretaker to the school office staff.
#11 Realise you don’t need to be an expert in everything. The pupils are the greatest asset in your classroom.
#12 Allow your pupils to lead their learning. Have a strategy and a plan for what they want to get out of the learning in then use ‘out of the box’ apps like Keynote, Clips and iMovie to complete their project and feedback to you in different ways.
We talk to a man who has an impeccable immune system with 100% job satisfaction. With over 14 years experience we talk to Marc Faulder about his story and add three more vitamins into our medicine cabinet.
Marc’s vitamins include:
#4 Meet other people- find people who are the same as you. Find free course and TeachMeets
#5 If you are feeling a bit lost or isolated- go and look around other schools- if you can see the wider picture of your school it puts things into perspective.
#6 Live in the now. Happiness is not a destination, it is a journey. Don’t race ahead to get out of the classroom because everything you are doing on a day to day basis is making you that great leader.
Questioning follows a simple and easy to follow format using RIC- Retrieve (highlight what you can see), Infer (read between the lines) and Choice (how does the author/singer’s choice of tone and music affect the content and message?).
Simply print out the lyric sheet and pop the questions on the board. Load up the songs via YouTube, Apple Music or Spotify and off you go!
It would be great to see your children taking part so please share any examples using the hashtag #Streamingforreading @Streamingforread or @Tomkonsek
