I have been working on creating my units for next term.
My plan is:
Grade 6 - BBC School Report - creating a news report
Unit Question: "What is the news and who decides it?"
Grade 7 - Coding - creating coding lessons for grade 6
Unit Question:"How do you learn?"
Grade 8 - Coding - creating coding lessons for primary school students or staff/parents
Unit Question: "How do you learn?"
Grade 9- Fantastic Feast - creating a science themed meal/event/party for the school
Unit Question: "Are you what you eat?"
I am also working on a Guerrilla Gardening unit I hope to deliver in the March-April term.
All my units will include a debate:
Grade 6 - This house would deny terrorists the oxygen of publicity
Grade 7 - This house believes coding should be taught in all schools
Grade 8 - This house believes coding should be taught in all schools
Grade 9 - This house would ban the development of genetically modified food
I have created iTunesU courses for all of these and I am happy to share them. iTunesU now let you also share the template, so you can edit the courses yourself. Please leave a comment, send me an email or a tweet if you would like to the view the courses.
If you have done any similar courses, please share your resources with me.
