Zhivvy']Sounds good, we do that with some year nine kids. the ones you are about 10 points away from their target levels. We have 2 hours a week with them and do study skills etc... all on one to one really helps them.

What do you mean by 10 points away from their target levels?

The kids are all set target levels to meet at the end of each key stage. So when they leave primary school at 11 they have their key stage two tests and are leveled in the core subjects - English, maths and science. They should come in on about a level 4 to be average. Each level is a,b and c - A-top of the level. Through years seven eight and nine they should prgress upwards through the levels as they learn more. And at the end of year nine (end of key stage three) they should have reached their target level. Each step in the level is worth 2 points. So if their target level is a 6B and they are currently working at a 5C they are 6 points away from their level. Hope that makes sense. Not completely in agreement with this as we assess the kids too much in my opinion.

 

In my old place we used to do most lessons one to one - it was great. It was a centre for excluded kids so we did an alternative curriculum and didn't really have to follow the syllabus. So we could plan lessons but they would go off on tangents etc... not much academic stuff going on but we really helped the kids to have some repsect for teachers and adults and helped them to trust again

I think going off on tangents can be very helpful.  It allows one to relate what they learn to what they already comprehend.  That's invaluable.  As a kid, I used to read a lot of religious stuff.  The only way I could understand it was create analogies to help myself and others understand the complicated with that which we related to.  I still do it all the time in a work environment.  I need to.  I work on complicated stuff that a lot of people don't know or want to know.

With these kids schools had failed them and they had failed school for whatever reason. So sitting in a formal situation in a class is pointless - they need to learn in different ways. For example in English we had to study The Tempest so we mixed it with art and created Prospero's island in clay and papier machee. Then we made models of the characters and made a series of still photos to plot the play - the kids loved it and really learned a lot. We had so much fun there. When I had to leave as contracted ended and the unit shut i cried for days - never loved teaching so much. I'm looking for similar kind of work but there aren't many units like that

 

 

I think I'm in agreement with you ... about the assessing.  Too much assessing is too much analyzing.  And you know what too much analyzing does - causes depression.  So if over analyzing ourselves causes negative reactions, then over-analyzing kids can not be too good either.

 

the whole papier mache and photo thing sounds like it was an excellent idea.  It's a pity the unit shut - why is it always the best stuff only lasts for a short period?

Maybe I was stating you were gay.

Because of the money - the director of the lea can earn 100 000 plus a year but they won't pay for the most needy kids around! These kids wouldn't have got the grades so don't count in a positive way in the stats so let them drift is their attitude! They'll drop out of view of society as they follow the patterns they see around them - pregnant by 16, on drugs (most of the ones we had at 14 drink and take drugs), and in prison by about 20. We were trying to get them to see that they had other choices - but then it stopped - hate the education authority for doing that

Yep, it's mine.  Thought it up in just 5 minutes.  I just need a thought... and I'm off. ;-)

 

I'm in a poetic and descriptive mood tonight.

 

Give me a thought and I'll create something for you...

phuw, you did scare me BC ...reappearing like that!!!

but you are right, you know..there's too much pressure on kids, today. every generation must do better, get higher grades... one of our friends teaches basicschool , 4&5 class (9-10 year olds) and he claims he's teaching them things they only had to learn in first class of highschool a couple of years ago...

so: less time to play, draw and read (for pleasure i mean , not for an assignment)..i see that with our kids, things we (in our time) practiced in class, now they have to practice at home, cause when they get to class next day, teacher will be on to the next level....it's sad.

It's important to keep a small minority of people on a high wage.  It's not important to improve the quality of the majority of people's lives.  A sad fact of a corrupt world.

I know but breaks my heart to see these young people wasting away in life and they have so much to offer.

And barbara you are right - there is so much pressure on kids these days - i never had pressure and things to learn like that. I remember last year when Eleanor was in year one (ages 5-6) she had her spelling to learn for homework. I was asking her which phoneme sound they were learning to spell that week. She told me (can't remember which one now - one made with vowels i think) and then proceded to tell me all the ways to do it and then went into great detail explaining to me what a split diagraph was and how they work!!! I was impressed, and luckily she is very bright and can cope with these big words etc... but surely it is unnecessary for a five year old to know these words! Let them play, read for fun and learn about making friends and being a good person before we start to fill their heads with complicated words and concepts

Thank you Zhiv ! My ideal is to smoke 2 or 3 but it's impossible with me. Like in others matters with me is all or nothing.

My friend, I will try to meet her better this year, she is an enigma to me, she is really like not being there at all. It seems I'm the only who notice her.
