Trump, Gun-Control & More: Videos on the US Election 2016

Trump, Gun-Control & More: Videos on the US Election 2016
On November 8 the world will watch closely as the United States heads to the polls to conclude what has been one of the most divisive US elections in generations. This heated election season has witnessed the improbable rise of Donald Trump, one of the most controversial Presidential candidates in the United States’ history. Trump has gone from being a laughing stock to a serious indicator that a swathe of America feels disenfranchised enough to turn to a leader variously characterised as a racist, tax-cheat and demagogue and a misogynist (a claim verified in no…

Why Teaching Never Leaves You – World Teachers’ Day

Why Teaching Never Leaves You – World Teachers’ Day
Wednesday October 5 marks World Teacher’s Day, a very special occasion celebrated in more than 100 countries worldwide. Having come to ClickView from teaching in regional Victoria I can attest to what an extraordinary job teaching is and I can also vouch for the extraordinary work that teachers do every day. Reflecting on my own time teaching I find myself thinking that the most rewarding parts of being in the classroom weren’t when those overly ambitious lesson plans actually worked (a rare occurrence), or when students did particularly well on an assessment or project, rewarding though…

Teach About Shakespeare with these Videos on ClickView

Teach About Shakespeare with these Videos on ClickView
To this day William Shakespeare remains a staple of the English classroom. The diversity of plots, combined with the timelessness of the themes in his comedies, tragedies and histories, sees Shakespeare broadly regarded as the greatest playwright and poet of the English language. Yet with this fame come the fears many students and teachers hold when faced with the challenge of understanding the texts and engaging with them deeply. Shakespeare is often placed in the ‘too hard’ pile when readers are thrown in the deep end without pre-reading and contextual study being utilised. (more…)

Reflections on John Hattie’s LEAP Conference Keynote

Reflections on John Hattie’s LEAP Conference Keynote
As an education research and policy tragic I was particularly excited to get to watch ClickView’s stream of John Hattie’s keynote at this year’s LEAP conference (I know, I know, I should probably get out more). The LEAP conferences, organised by Warren Marks and Suzanne Lazenby, always cover fascinating topics and this year’s focus on Professional Learning Communities was no exception. John Hattie’s keynote offered a number of really interesting takeaways, all of which had me wishing I was back at my school throwing ideas around with fellow teachers. Hattie’s core argument was that collective efficacy…

The Writers’ Workshop: Videos for Text Analysis with Your Students

The Writers’ Workshop: Videos for Text Analysis with Your Students
Secondary School students often struggle with text analysis. They not only find it difficult to draw out the themes of a text, it can also prove challenging to understand how literary devices and techniques are used to deepen meaning and produce a riveting story for the reader. What better way for students to develop their text analysis skills than by hearing authors talk about the writing process? By understanding how an author develops and constructs a narrative, students can then use that knowledge to deconstruct a given text and improve their literary analysis skills. The…
