My addition to the touchy emotional feelings type geography is the video emotional graph.
We’re going to watch the B.B.C. news special on Katrina and graph our emotional response every five minutes, each time adding a note of explanation, at the end we’ll calculate our average emotional score. We’ll then consider how our emotional response changed over time and why. If it doesn’t work, it’s some numeracy anyway! 🙂
I like to try a new starter each week, I’ve always been against word searches, but decided to have a go at a class one. I’m going to set a time limit of five minutes and then ask students to come to the IWB to highlight their word and explain its significance to the topic. As a result, I’ve updated my starter and plenary page.
