THIS is a lesson that I recently planned which could be adapted for a Year 8 or Year 9 mixed ability class. I adapted it from someone else so I thought it was only fair to pass my version on too.
You will see that the top link takes you to a lesson PowerPoint and the second link to a comprehensive lesson plan. Please note that this lesson is based around my concept of ‘Leading Learning’ and facilitating the learning of young people but certainly not teaching them. It is based around the principle of making the learning real to the learner. Moreover it is based around the concept of learning through thinking, interaction and communication.
I hope some people will find this useful.
