Classroom Management

Tyger! Burning brightIn the forests of the night, What immortal hand or eyeCould frame thy fearful symmetry? In what distant deeps or skiesBurnt the fire of thine eyes? On what wings dare he aspire? What the hand, dare sieze the fire? And what shoulder, & what art, Could twist the sinews of thy heart? What the hammer? When the stars threw down their spears, And water'd heaven with their tears, Did he smile his work to see? Tyger! Written in trochaic tetrameter catalectic. Explaining, Modelling and Questioning.

Independent and Collaborative Learning

In 2007, UCLA conducted an experiment into the effect of web 'surfing' on the human brain. In the more active internet users there was considerably more activity in the, prefrontal cortex associated with problem-solving and decision-making (Carr 2010). Internet use, then, had effectively 'rewired the brain' and created fresh neural pathways.Furthermore, attitudes towards young people's prolific use of digital technology are persistently ambivalent. Subject Pedagogy. Emerging Issues 1. Using the extract as a starting point, write about how Shelley explores revenge in Frankenstein.

Emerging Issues 1

Frankenstein extract: Chapter 24 How I have lived I hardly know; many times have I stretched my failing limbs upon the sandy plain and prayed for death. But revenge kept me alive; I dared not die and leave my adversary in being. When I quitted Geneva my first labour was to gain some clue by which I might trace the steps of my fiendish enemy.

But my plan was unsettled; and I wandered many hours round the confines of the town, uncertain what path I should pursue. As night approached, I found myself at the entrance of the cemetery where William, Elizabeth, and my father reposed. The deep grief which this scene had at first excited quickly gave way to rage and despair.
