More activity less lecture

Discussion in 'Trainee and student teachers' started by Sophie1329, May 8, 2012.

  1. I will start off with saying that im a student teacher in my first year.I am training to be a secondary teacher however my first year placement is in a Primary school. I know very little about how to teach at a primary level or what ways i can do a lesson which are stimulating for 10, 11 and 12 year olds. I am thinking about doing alesson on Mother Teresa. However it seems to just come out as a lecture. There is so much infomation about her life and I only have 45 minutes to do it in.
    Dose anyone know a way I can do a lesson which contains a lot of infomation without it sounding just like a lecture. Any activities or ways of communicating the infomation which are fun and interesting would be highly appreciated
  2. why not post in the primary forum - if you can get holdof it in your library there is a good book by Paul Ginnis - the Teacher'sToolkit that has lots of good ideas for activities for lessons.
