Ready to learn( Visual )

4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 702 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At the Hills Lower School in Bedfordshire, Teacher Sarah Cottenden conducts a lesson to raise awareness of the constituents of a healthy diet for her Year 1 class, using resources linked to Ready to Learn? The Experiment. After a lively aerobics session, the class starts off by creating a mind map on why we need food and water, and they discuss the role of fruit and vegetables in a healthy diet. Then each child chooses their favourite fruit from the display of fruit and vegetables before them, and draws their selection on a sticky note. Their drawings form a pictogram - a tally chart which demonstrates the class's favourite fruit. By the end of the lesson, the children understand that eating fruit and vegetables not only keep them healthy, they also help them to be ready to learn. Former science teacher Matthew Tosh discusses some possible lesson alternatives, and explains why children can only take part in Ready to Learn? The Experiment in the morning
Catherine the Great by Paul Burgess( Visual )

5 editions published between 2006 and 2010 in English and held by 603 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A minor German princess with connections to Swedish royalty, the future Catherine the Great, Empress of Russia began as the handpicked bride of the future Czar. When he ascended the throne, Catherine plotted his overthrow, took power, and began to pull her country out of the dark ages. She led Russia for 30 years, creating an enviable dynasty build on cunning and ruthlessness, in addition to newfound notions of justice, progress, and a centralized government. Ahead of her time, Catherine the Great stands as a model for light in a time of great cultural and sociological darkness. In blending discussion of the facts by scholars--each presenting a particular slant on Catherine's life and conduct--with fictional recreations of pivotal events in her life, this film presents a well-rounded portrait of 18th Century Europe's most 'enlightened' despot

AST Dr. Robin Whitburn at St Mary's School in Hendon plans a lesson about British relations with her colonial subjects for his post GCSE study group. Both he and Sara Bubb, Senior Lecturer at the Institute of Education, are great believers in the importance of identifying a key question. In this lesson the key question is about British and African expectations of each other and how were they expressed in illustrations. He starts with a lively opener about which World Cup African qualifiers are former colonies of which European power. He allows for differentiation with standard, super and super upgrade categories of complexity. He then moves on to looking at historical illustrations and ask his students to decode the relationship displayed therein. He completes his plan with a plenary on the expectations the Africans had about themselves. His advice to other teachers is not to stay awake at night worrying about planning the next day's lesson
