  4. 4. Video/The Connected Classroom Xtra-normal. Webcame on DET laptop. Filming performances and writing critiques. Consider buddying up with another school and performing over the video conferencing network.
  5. 5. Role Play in English & Maths Sometimes good old fashioned ideas help. These are great for both primary and high school:  Dress up and present a short monologue as your character.  Create a set box for a scene in a book you’re reading together.  Create the shapes you are learning about in maths. Practise counting money and numbers by having kids form groups. From here get the kids to work together on a group problem.
  6. 6. For The Science, PE, HSIE Teachers Re-enact a scientific experiment. Become the different metals, chemicals and show the reaction physically without words. Role play risk taking situations and how they can be avoided. In HSIE pick a historic event and imagine you are journalists at a press conference covering the event.
  7. 7. Different Learning Styles Remember that not all kids are pen and paper learners. If you’re having trouble engaging kids these ideas might be a good way to encourage them to take a renewed interest in your subject. Consider visiting: Curriculum Support – not just for DET teachers. Improvisation Encyclopedia – Google it.
