In my spare time, when I am not looking after my children, I love writing and gaming. I have written many interactive fiction gamebooks from many genres including fantasy, science fiction and historical. I am learning how to keep fit and I am always doing some kind of course, such as cooking, DIY or based on teaching.
I pay attention to how my students are doing and what their though processes and motivations might be. I find content that links in with what they find interesting and link it to the content they need to learn. I help my students find connections within the content so that it is easier to remember. I also find my students' misconceptions and correct them, which leads to a deeper learning experience.
