Generate interest and enthusiasm in class


One format for planning is to use a mind map approach and involving students generates interest and enthusiasm. Grouping children in mixed ability groups with one scribe and asking them to write everything they know about a chosen country can highlight common misconceptions that may need to be addressed.
Maps can be compared and followed with the question ‘What we want to know about ______’. Time can then be allowed for group or individual research.
At the end of an event, mind maps of ‘what have we learned’ are an excellent way of evaluation and consolidating learning.
