English as a Second Language (ESL) Lesson plans & ideas for teachers: eslflow index & home page Teaching that STICKS – Planning a ‘sticky’ lesson. | @mrocallaghan_edu How do we make learning stick? Chip & Dan Heath’s most recent book ‘Made to stick’ provides a framework for making ideas ‘sticky.’ If you’ve not read the book I’d advise getting a copy. Whilst you’re waiting for your copy to arrive, I’d recommend watching the following two videos to get an overview of the Heath brothers ideas. The Heath brothers brilliantly summarise a ‘sticky’ idea here… A sticky idea is an idea that’s understood, that’s remembered, and that changes something (opinions, behaviors, values). In the book the Heath brothers come up with a framework called SUCCESS which can be used to deliver knowledge in a more memorable way. Shaun Allison’s post captures the essence of the SUCCESS framework in this graphic… Image via @shaun_allison Planning a ‘sticky’ lesson. ‘Sticky’ plan by @mrocallaghanedu based on the ideas of Chip & Dan Heath How does it work?

(58) TeachingEnglish | British Council Queen Elizabeth Ii In wishing you all 'good evening' I feel that I am speaking to friends and companions who have shared with my sister and myself many a happy Children's Hour. Thousands of you in this country have had to leave your homes and be separated from your fathers and mothers. My sister Margaret Rose and I feel so much for you as we know from experience what it means to be away from those we love most of all. To you, living in new surroundings, we send a message of true sympathy and at the same time we would like to thank the kind people who have welcomed you to their homes in the country. All of us children who are still at home think continually of our friends and relations who have gone overseas - who have travelled thousands of miles to find a wartime home and a kindly welcome in Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and the United States of America. My sister and I feel we know quite a lot about these countries. But I am sure that you, too, are often thinking of the Old Country.

His home was on the sea and Christopher longed to become an explorer and sailor. However, as a young man, Christopher went to Portugal and got involved in the map making business with his brother, Bartholomew. This business made Columbus a rich man. During this time, people were very interested in finding a sailing route around Africa to China, Japan and India. Columbus knew he had to make this idea of sailing, using a western route, more popular. The Voyages of Christopher Columbus (Click to enlarge) In 1942 he set sail with three ships, the Nina, Pinta and Santa Maria and about 90 men.
