Our second meet of the week looked at lesson objectives.
Wordle or Tagxedo are great online sites which allow you to create Word Clouds where you can put any words of your choice on a particular theme or topic and then choose to display them in horizontal form, as below
or in a more chaotic manner:
There are lots of levels in between too and a variety of colours and fonts. Pupils should look for key words and then work out the lesson objectives. As the lesson proceeds, more can be made of this resource. In these French examples I could get pupils to make some sentences, or perhaps create their own word cloud (also known as “scatterglories”). Such word clouds can be used with any age and on any topic. Perhaps some key words relating to a recent set text in English? Or some key terms in physics?
#TIP 1: Add a red herring to see if the pupils spot it and to see if they can work out why it is a red-herring.
