Cool Cat Teacher Blog: 62 Ideas, Lessons and Humor for English Teachers #engchat Cool Cat Teacher Blog: 62 Ideas, Lessons and Humor for English Teachers #engchat I start back to school today for my eleventh year of teaching next door to my own high school English teacher. Mrs. Caldwell taught me to write and love literature. She's a fantastic teacher who is always innovating. Just yesterday, she showed me something new she'd created for her class.
I've heard this question many, many times! So, when I came across this excellent explanation in the newly released 2010 Senior English Syllabus in Queensland , I thought it was worth reproducing here: Purpose These techniques are used to assess the sustained application of higher order cognition of students to known and provided texts in the creation and evaluation of their own extended written and spoken/signed texts.

PHOTO shows President Obama editing his inauguration address. The White House has unveiled its latest batch of behind-the-scenes photos of President Obama. I don't see any news-making photos in this particular pile—nothing on par with, say, pics of Obama shooting a gun or answering a concession phone call from Mitt Romney—but the shot that probably jumps out as most interesting is the one below, of the president holding a heavily edited draft of what would become his inaugural address. The photo shows only a portion of the first page of what was a rather lengthy speech, but what we can see nonetheless largely confirms previous anecdotes that Obama prefers to take an active role in shaping his remarks, particularly for major events like an inauguration or State of the Union address. (The photo also suggests that someone in the White House has better taste in fonts than Hillary Clinton.) The changes you can make out if you zoom in on this particular photo range from minor grammar tweaks to some relatively heavy rewrites. PHOTO shows President Obama editing his inauguration address.
Every so often, I like to blog about a lesson I have taught that week. Not because I think I am amazingly great - I am not: I still have a pile of marking to do and there is always something I haven’t done. But, because I like to share and see what others have done. Writing a blog on a lesson becomes the equivalent of throwing a pebble in the pond. Lots of waves are generated. In the past, I have described a lesson and as a result of that I have had several suggestions of how else that specific lesson could have been done.

NCTE High School Matters: Annotating text using Google Docs by Tara Seale Recently, I wrote an article for the Google Docs Blog titled Google Docs: the tool for the 21st century classroom. The focus was how to use Google Docs and folders in an English classroom. Besides the ideas in the Google post, my students are also using Google Docs to annotate articles, short passages, or poems.

Using Drama to Liven Up Your Lessons Why use Drama in Lessons? Drama isn’t just a subject, it’s a very powerful technique for adding interest and engagement to your lessons. But it’s often also one that some teachers steer slear of with the challenges of organising it and the potential for disruption. So I delved into our course archives and adapted this guidance written by our Lead Consultant for English and Drama Kevin Piper. Drama has a number of advantages as a tool in the classroom.
