What does the teacher think? understanding(1) Learning about sustainability

“The diaries have really helped a lot of the pupils consider the three pillars ... and they have started to use the words ‘environmentally / economically / socially sustainable’ more without me prompting them. They can see it as a theme in all of the lessons and in discussing it more in the diaries, it has made some of them more confident in lessons.”

What does the teacher think? understanding(2) Learning and reflecting

“Some pupils have struggled with graphs like population pyramids and the DTM. In being able to discuss this and write down their worries, it has helped keep them going ....... It has also shown them that an extra interest is being taken in them, and for some pupils, this has been excellent. James has come round (I think) and people like Faith, Amy and Rebecca have a forum for their thoughts and ideas. I love it!”
