  • How could you use the Key Resources with your student teachers? If each student had them available on a mobile phone, how could you capitalise on this?
  • Are there any Key Resources which you could use to plan your own teaching? Think about the topics that you will be teaching in the near future.
  • Write a plan in your study notebook which draws on or uses one of the Key Resources. Note which Key Resource you would use and how you would use it.
