    That's right. Have taught in an British international school here for three years. Thanks for responding. I am genuinely interested in how this can be used by others. Out of interest, how did you know I was in Doha?

    Thanks - I'm going to use the ideas from the video!

    The video is a really good idea, isn't it? So simple. Asked my students to make their own films that explained how to use categories, examining, and comparing and contrasting. Was so much better than any sort of PEED stuff.

    Thank you Peter. Hope all is well with you. Glad you like the ideas. Sure it's stuff you've seen before but has been interesting to develop it with my students. Will we see you this way again?

    Probably not as so much has changed. I'm still busy with Inset and iGCSE but the old consortium arrangements have fallen apart.
    Have a good summer break.

    Great to see ways to move away from those acronyms!

    Thanks for sharing them here! I have never thought I would start writing. I've always been an avid reader rather than a writer. But one day I read a great stuff - http://bid4papers.com/blog/read-more-write-better/ and understood I had to try. I'm the type of person who needs to be inspired to do anything. So, if there is inspiration, I write:)
