A CONCEPT BORN FROM A UK NATIONAL AWARD WINNING EDUCATOR WITH 20+ PASSIONATE YEARS EXPERIENCE IN NATIONAL AND INTERNATIONAL SCHOOLS.
Inspired by the popular 'Guess Who?' board game, I set about the mission to devise an activity that could be applied to all new concepts taught. Something that would resonate with all my students and bring them closer together. Something that would help them to develop their oracy skills. My thinking: "If my confidence as a teacher is growing due to improved subject knowledge, then it is inevitable that exposing my students to the language associated with ambitious learning outcomes would also see them shining while at work."
