What is Black History Month? Now in its 35th year, Black History Month is celebrated in October. It is a time for us, as a nation, to celebrate the many contributions of black people to British society. It also helps promote an understanding of black history in general.
Flipped Learning is not a new concept, however, with the availability of technology, utilising resources already available has made Flipped Learning more accessible for all students. As Economics is a new subject to all students, I wanted to focus on developing the analytical skills that students need to engage with the subject during their lesson time, and renovated homework time to incorporate elements of prior learning to develop their Knowledge. Not only trying to teach the content in a shorter amount of time, I also wanted to improve student’s ability to work independently, and improve their natural curiosity for a subject.
We’re Anna and Louise, two mums of teens and young adults, and together we run Equipp, a business selling gifts for teenagers. We’re passionate about celebrating teens and helping them to happily achieve their potential. So we were delighted when Manisha from iXL Tutors asked us to share our personal experiences of using tutors; it’s a subject close to our hearts.
