Year 10 Social Studies lesson -  25/09/2017

This was a Year 10 social studies class on Mixed Member Proportional. At the end of the class I implemented exit cards for the first time. Students were required to put two ticks if they understood MMP, one tick if they weren't 100% confident and no ticks if they were very confused. They also wrote one thing they had learnt in that lesson that they didn't know prior. ​

This was a Year 10 social studies class on parties in government. I checked students understanding throughout the lesson through the use of a values continuum and getting students to write on the whiteboard. At the end of the class students used the exit cards for a second time and were required to write about one political party and there beliefs.

Year 13 History lesson -  19/10/2017

This was a Year 13 History class I taught on the consequences of the Treaty of Versailles. Each group was split by the different types of consequences and participated in a Jigsaw style activity, where they had to read an article and make note of the consequences relevant to their group. This was then shared with the class and charted on a table. ​

Year 9 Social Studies lesson -  25/10/2017

This was a Year 9 class where students completed a Tic-Tac-Toe activity. The Tac-Tac-Toe required students to complete four tasks over two periods, each task based on the topics they had studied throughout the year. During the class I checked students work and offered suggestions to each student. Afterwards I marked their work and sent them each a grade and individual feedback.

Year 10 Social Studies lesson -  15/11/2017

This was my final class using exit cards with Year 10 social studies students. The class was on dictators, specifically Hitler's rise to power. I gave the students the exit cards at the start of the lesson and got them to write a definition for a Dictator. Once we had learnt more about dictatorships, I gave them the opportunity to change their definition or add to it. At the end of the class, I got them to do a short timeline explaining Hitler's rise to power.
