Creating independent learners poster

The teaching and learning focus for this term at school is developing independent learning in lessons. Having been asked to take a leading role in this CPD for all staff, I began by summarising some tips and pointers for teachers in this Keynote presentation. Keynote is a great app and was highlighted recently by @ICTEvangelist and @87History on Twitter as an excellent presentation tool. This poster is to be presented in all classrooms at school as the first stage of developing awareness of developing independent learning. I hope it is of use to others.

 GCSE knowledge organisers for revision

I used these knowledge organisers last year for the GCSE topics – Britain, 1890-1930, The Cold War and The USA, 1918-41 – and they proved to be very helpful in the final run-in for the exams. Thought they would be useful and are easy to adapt for other topics.
