Lesson Planning

Does the material lend itself to whole class teaching or would it be better presented to groups?

Generating and using resources

This topic involves identifying the point to be taught and finding or generating materials in suitable formats. Formats could be paper based, power point, video, audio, web based etc.

Ice breakers & setting the tone

Straw Works begins each practical build in a particular way. This method sets the tone and explains the ethos of the company. During this topic the methods will be demonstrated to you and you will have the opportunity to role play them in the group.

Scoping a course

Scoping a course is about becoming familiar with the venue, facilities and limitations, numbers of participants and their expectations.
