Helping teachers have a greater impact on the lives of their students every day

Posts in the Spotlight – Outstanding Lessons, Thank You, Teacher and Cool Containers.


Tips for new teachers

Here are some sites that I thought should be spotlighted.  Take a look.

From the Creative Education Blog – Outstanding Lesson Plans and How to Create Your Own by Pooky Hesmondhalgh – Great for new teachers, and even some of us more seasoned ones.

From the Successful Teaching Blog – Thank You, Teacher by Jill Hare, Editor, – Just in case you need to be reminded.

From TeacherTipster.comCool Containers by Dustin Smith – Just another one of his cool videos that gives teachers some new ideas on how to use every day containers in the classroom.

Thank you,

    Thanks for the link! Very kind. I hope that the post is helfpul to you and some of your readers.

    In answer to your query a Plenary is simply the final part of a lesson when a teacher finds out what students have learnt, re-emphasises the key points and sometimes prepares them for the next lesson. (I’m sure a trainee teacher could give you a far more cogent definition but I hope that helps!)

    I highlighted your post in my Daily Digest of Education related blogs today as I thought other teachers would find it of interest. You can see it here:

      Thanks, see, even veteran teachers like me can still learn new things. Thanks for all you do, and thanks for the mention in the Daily Digest.
