English Teaching 3

Our pupils start exams this week, so an appropriate post as the third of an occasional series for English teachers... We'll post some more English teachers' recommendations over the next few days.

Teachit, the British-based resource for English teaching online, has an excellent clock/timer for class tests/exams for display via projector (it can be used from the site, or downloaded to your computer). It can also be used for a sequence of timings within a lesson. You can set it in a variety of ways, and have options too for alerts and alarms (including a whistle, gong, woof and baa!). It's well-designed, being clear and big, and will keep your pupils on schedule... They've got an advice sheet here on how it can be used.

So set that sheep alarm and get going...
