Facebook Stories: We Are All Daniel Cui

All I can say is ….. watch this

Great video showing the impact we can have on others - negative and positive. Illustrates how we as a community can push people down, but pull people up.

This was shown at my school as part of social media etiquette awareness, but also to highlight consequences of our actions (positive and negative).

New York

Very excited and grateful to be able to attend a week long workshop at Colombia University's Teachers College on adapting curriculum to suit the Common Core.

It was mix of instructional suggestions, hands on activites, resource sharing and modelling to look at best practices.

Practicing what he preaches, Dr Peter Garitty, started the day with "Do Nows" and classroom management tips to ensure you're getting the most out of the precios class time you have. 

A wonderful experience to share knowledge and ideas with other practitioners from all around the world.

I am so excited to announce that my UK curriculum work for TES is now ONLINE!

It has been my little side project that I have been working on over the last month. I have probably dedicated too much time to it, but am very chuffed at the result.

It's a published resource on the TES website with the aim to help teachers prepare for changes related to National Curriculum reform in England. My document focuses on KS3 science, in the area of Chemistry. It contains resources, activities and lesson plans aligned to each objective of the secondary chemistry curriculum for 2014.
