Why I Love… Live Modelling for across the curriculum | susansenglish

Earlier today I responded to this tweet:

If you could share one teaching idea/strategy with the rest of your school, what would it be? #teamenglish @Team_English1

Replying to @missreads @Team_English1
Live modelling 100%. A plethora of different advantages, transfers across subjects brilliantly & helps s’s metacognition when done well

Miss Reads responded with: Brilliant! Would you be willing to share key tips to help implement it well? @missreads @Team_English1

I felt that the restrictions of a tweet wouldn’t do this justice, so here is my attempt to explain how I use…

What I love…Learning from #TLT | susansenglish

What I’ve used this week as a result of TLT.

This week I came back from TLT absolutely determined to make little tweaks to my teaching as I wrote here: http://ift.tt/2i9uCBO

Synonyms & Allusions – Referenced below

The perfect opportunity arose at the start of the week. After a discussions with @Becky1820 who went to the vocabulary session no 4 and had said about being more explicit about vocabulary richness with students I decided to implement this in a couple of ways. With Y10 and Y11 I did a 5 minute synonym starter challenge – you…

Why I love…(d) #TLT17 @TLT17 | susansenglish

First thank you to the wonderful @MissJLud and @DavidFawcett27 for their organisation of the whole event. It is simply amazing and it must take a phenomenal amount of work to get it sorted! So thank you both.

Atmosphere

First up the atmosphere is fantastic. We arrived, @Becky1820 and I from the 2hour 15 minute journey, at about 10.30, signed in with the really lovely people who were manning the front desks and ensuring that no-one was charged for their free place.

If a journalist were to report on it the headline would not be about washed out unenthusiastic teachers! That is a fact.

This was my second year and it is utterly…
