Sport In College

Around 25% of Colleges do not see sport as a key priority, even though there is evidence to suggest participation in sport helps with learner engagement, retention, attainment and the profile of the college.

What if any would you take off the curriculum ? To teach attitudes regarding money, good debt and bad dept?

What will you take off the curriculum to do it? Nothing ? Should the curriculum teach financial numeracy as part of maths? Helping encourage those who don't engage to get more involved or understand applied financial mathematics. By teaching attitudes to money (e.g., good debt bad debt) within PHSE or within chosen subjects. This could promote economic growth through a better understanding of money and a more entrepreneurial society. We have far to many students graduating with no jobs…

Maxwell Semana 14... El última semana

Mi última semana en Maxwell fue muy triste, pero también la diversión. Allí estaba todo el día del miércoles la Quinta de diciembre porque señora Vaca quería ser su sustituto. Ella tuvo que llevar a su madre al doctor ese día y no podía estar en la escuela. Estaba muy feliz de pasar todo el día como el maestro de mi hijo. El día fue muy accidentado y las octava horas pasaron rápidamente. Empecé el día leyendo un libro en español a la clase denominada, "la rosa Hermosa." Estaba un poco…

Theorist search

During a series of teaching observations of one teacher I noted he often used humourous anecdotes especially as brain breaks. As part of my Cert Ed writings I am searching for any theorists who believes humour can be an effective part of learning. Any helpful suggestions out there would be most welcome.

I would use social networking in mu classroom to make a website open to my students and parents. I would use it to put review sheets and other assignments on it. I feel it would keep the parents updated on what was going on in their childrens classroo

Motivating Students to Learn, Project-based.

Last week, in my physics class, I was attempting to motivate my students to do research on alternative energy sources that will help to reduce the amount of carbon dioxide emitted into the atmosphere.  The emphasis is on replacing the production of electricity from combustion sources like coal or natural gas and favoring wind energy or solar photovoltaic cells.

Each day at the start of class I would mention yet another climate change occurrence that I had read about or heard…
