Keep Calm and Carry On was a propaganda poster produced by the British government in 1939 during the beginning of the Second World War, intended to raise the morale of the British public in the event of a Nazi invasion of Great Britain.

These posters might raise morale or just a few eyebrows.  They include.

Free DeBono's Thinking Hats Posters

Six THinking Hats Poster.PNG

Edward DeBono's Six Thinking Hats is a time-tested, proven and practical thinking tool.  It provides a framework to help people think clearly and thoroughly by directing their thinking  attention in one direction at a time.

These set of seven posters based on DeBono's Thinking Hats will make it simple for students to follow the process and solve problems in a logical and structured manner.

It works like this; white hat facts, green hat creativity,  yellow hat benefits, black cautions,  red hat feelings, and blue hat process.

It's a simple mental metaphor. Hats are easy to put  on and to take off. Each hat is a different color which signals the thinking process . In a group setting each member thinks using the same thinking hat, at  the same time, on the same thinking challenge—we call this focused parallel thinking--a  tool that facilitates creativity and collaboration. It enables each person's unique point of  view to be included and considered. Argument and endless discussion become a  thing of the past. Thinking becomes more thorough.

The Maths Toolbox Poster every maths teacher needs

maths_toolbox_jpg.png

I have been using a resource known as the maths toolbox to show students strategies to deal with unknown and difficult math problems for a number of years.  There are 12 in all and in the next few days I will be adding a presentation explaining how and when to use each of these. These types of tools are similar to the ones offered by     professional  education services such as TakeLessons math tutors

I have just put together some posters for you to download in an A3 and A4 format that I would strongly recommend sticking in your classroom and your students workbooks to quickly refer to when unsure of how to attack a difficult problem.

These concepts can be pitched at any age and are a must have for all teachers to add to their own tool kit.  I'd love to hear of any other great resources that you have to share also.

Free Classroom Poster: Parts of a Paragraph

Parts-of-a-paragraph-poster2.JPG

It is often said that writing a paragraph correctly is like making a hamburger.  The two buns contain a collection of tasty but different ingredients that keep us coming back for more.

This analogy is a good one for students to understand as the correct way to structure a paragraph is as follows.

1)topic sentence: tells the reader what the paragraph is going to be about

2)the body: the main part of the paragraph. This is where you tell the reader about your topic by including specific details.

3)The closing or clincher sentence: comes after all the details havebeen included in the body of the paragraph. The closing sentence remindsthe reader what the topic of the paragraph is really all about, what itmeans.

This poster will come in handy in any classroom as it very simply outlines these facts in a great visual manner using the hamburger visual to help them remember these facts.
