Essay writing can become quite tedious and boring for the teacher and the student. However, by putting energy into the essay through visual scaffolding and organisation, the student feels more enthused and the essays become less generic and descriptive. Using scaffolding and group work, you can make essays come alive and more meaningful. You will be introduced to some active learning techniques that can be used to structure an essay and how this can be used to then form the basis of a written essay. This is particularly useful across all areas of secondary and can be adjusted to suit the appropriate level.

Techniques in scaffolding and essay writing. Using active learning to tap into student’s potential.

I mostly teach History (17 years) across secondary IMYC, IGCSE & IBDP. In the last couple of years I’ve been testing the waters with TOK! I’m all about alternative approaches to teaching and trying to make learning as engaging, creative and inclusive as I can!
