Exam Class Toolkit - how to create engaging lessons that ensure progression and results

create lessons that stick, stick adobe, Blogging, Wiki, mind-map,thinking skills, cocnrete ideas, exam resultsExam Class ToolkitThe key philosophy within this book is to show how exam preparation should not destroy good learning and teaching. There are too many cliches and misunderstandings surrounding the teaching of exam groups and if education is to be improved (as per recent government initiatives) then we need to tackle these head on. The book also demonstrate how innovative and exciting lessons are more essential when working with exam groups than at any other time.

Create the Perfect Presentation

There are several books that discuss the issues of presenting information in various ways, some of which do an excellent job for example Cliff Atkinson's Beyond Bullet Points, but Presentation Zen takes the reader to another level when it comes to understanding the nature of presenting one's message.

Reynolds summarises current literature on the topic and gets you thinking about why your key point(s) matter and how we can go about ensuring that the audience, in this case our students, are engaged, want to continue to listen or discuss and that they remember what your message is all about. Presenation Zen encourages the reader to become more creative and, something which we feel is essential, shows us as professionals how we can teach our students to become inspirational and thoughtful communicators.

When we deliver INSET or workshops we always use Garr Reynold's ideas and his theory behind a successful presentation.
