The writing’s on the wall
If you’re looking for some inspiration for the new school year, check out this post by Edna called 10 ways to think about your learning space. It’s poses some interesting questions about how you want your students to work and how you can inspire them to learn more.
Edna suggests having a “Wonder Wall” – a place where students can write questions which will inspire others to think. This reminds me of my classroom a few years ago, in which I had a grafitti wall. It was just a huge piece of paper which I coloured to look like a brick wall where students could grafitti their favourite words and phrases in English. It was great: we had song lyrics, quotes from The Simpsons and even “Ibble, obble, black bobble; Ibble, obble, out.”
