Resource of the Week 21st-28th August

Your lesson starter is incredibly important. Whether you are in a classroom or undertake projects in other locations, if you can use multimedia resources it can REALLY help captivate your audience! I work with11-18 year olds who can often come across as cynical, so to get them interested and engaged I often use photographs or short film clips. You could do worse than use THIS VIDEO as a starter! There are so many lessons from this video for students and teachers...What do YOU use as a lesson starter...Post to this note now!
