ANyone been on any of these courses? Any use?
Yes, if you get rid off all the superficial 'happy-clappy stuff'.I use it with my Higher and Standard Grade - but the kids have to get used to doing all the work.
I've just been on the academy for the last 3 days and it was bloody brilliant. Chris Ward is an excellent speaker and educator and it all makes sense. If you get the chance sign up - I don't even regret giving up 3 days of my hols as I have loads of stuff that I can start using on Tuesday!
Homegirl, where did you find out about the academy? I would love to go on this but because I'm in SfL, my authority won't allow it.
Yes - really useful, practical classroom strategies.
I can vouch for any co-operative learning course run by Chris Ward. She really is very good. The teaching of academic goals runs hand in hand with the teaching (yes, the 'teaching') of social skills - listening, participating, turn-taking etc. - sometimes, things that we expect the 'weans' to be able to just do.
