I am an A Level Philosophy, Ethics and Theology teacher. I have taught between 80 – 150 R.S students per year, for the past fourteen years. For the last two years I have also been teaching first and second year Criminology (WJEC).
In 2013 I graduated from the University of Cambridge with a MEd (Masters in Education) focusing on Dialogic Learning.
For six years I managed a team of Coaches dedicated to developing Teaching, Learning and Assessment within our college.
My current focus is developing a resource bank of videos on YouTube (link at the bottom) for both R.S and Criminology which includes powerpoints, lessons, essay support and exam preparation. In the future I would like to write a self help book for teachers on strategies that can help with workload, marking, essay skills, facilitating discussions and much more…
After having huge success on SlideShare, with my power points being viewed over a quarter of a million times, I started to think that I have so much more to share that may be of interest to other students and teachers outside my college.
So this blog will document my on-going findings, reflections and tips for both teachers and students.
I would also like to say a huge thank you to Megan Watts, my extremely talented former student, who designed my blog’s main image. Check out http://www.Etsy.com/uk/shop/DarceyStrangeways
