More useful things


The games were a huge hit and not just with year 10. Have been poking around online today and found some other useful sites. I’m preparing Module A: Richard III and Looking for Richard and came across Film Education which has some great notes and study guides on a huge range of films. I think this is a very interesting pairing of texts (and a refreshing change from Blade Runner and Brave New World). I’m planning to show the film first because I think it will engage students in a closer reading of the play itself as well as give them some insights into authentic questions about the play as a play.

Revisited TeacherTube. What a great site this is – have visions of an assessment task where students create a 3 minute video on Richard III and Looking for Richard and post it on TeacherTube!

About lyntiernan

I teach kids. Mostly English but sometimes good manners, how to have fun learning, that you are never too old to learn something new, that we all make mistakes and what we do about mistakes is who we become, that the future is not some place we are going to but a place we are creating and... I like learning and adapting new technology in the classroom I'm good with my new IWB, websites and email but hopeless with mobile phones!

  1. Hi Lyn
    I haven’t completely set up my blog for various reasons (you could call them convenient excuses) but I will get there I hope. I just need to sit down with time on my side and do it and for that I may have to wait for holidays!
    I did want to email you but Don’t have your email address. Would love some help with Prelim English Stan/Adv as I mentioned. Just feel like I would like to look at some other schools’ programs and reassess what the teachers are doing here. Do you think you can help me? And, is this the right place to put a question…..?
    I think I prefer email…..!
    Thanks for your support at the conference and I look forward to catching up soon. I have a staff meeting on Wed 10th (always on Wed) where I have to present so that day is not good for me.
