Finally found the motivation to complete the Industrial Revolution unit of work with some great documentaries and worksheets. I was just talking to another teacher yesterday about how much time it takes to set up units of work... i may only include one documentary, but I usually have to watch 3-4 to find that one. With each documentary going for 30 mins to an hour or more.. it certainly takes time. Fortunately if the documentary is a good one you can usually find online questions or worksheets that go with it- and with a bit of adapting it can save a lot of time. So after about 3 hours of sitting at my desk I have one documentary and a question sheet.... :) I think i'll call it a day now as "The Hobbit" is on at the cinema calling my name :)
This blog is a record of the day to day classroom activities for teachers, parents and students. This is also a bit of a personal record for myself on how things are going and what each class is working on.
