Easter break!!!!!!!

Wishing you all a happy and well deserved holiday-here's the plans for tomorrow. With Higher, I want to start using the wiki, and will hopefully have created a basic one for Intermediate too. I thought the Higher might like a look at the political_compass-this was a site that was sent to me ages ago and that I had forgotten about completely. A discussion in one of my classes today about Stalin of all people reminded me of this-I tested myself again, and seem to fall somewhere around Ghandi and the Dalai Lama! Aside from the novelty aspect of this quiz, it does cover some important aspects of values and citizenship which we incorporate into the course in areas as diverse as population (migration), atmosphere (climate change), and many others. I also have a mystery activity and supporting work from sln related to population. s4 have their pre-easter school/exam revision plans to formulate. We will use the course arrangements to aid this. I will hopefully introduce their wiki during this period too, as well as seeing the last of the movies,technical hitches now rectified(?). Last, but not least, s2 will be working on another idea sourced on sln around the bbc's '50 things to do before you die', with a geographical look at their favourite activities.
