  • Learners will develop spelling confidence and typing speed (if they play the game on a computer) during the week.
 I'm Ms. Riot, a creative teacher (certified, qualified and experienced) from London, England. My teaching adventure began at university with the completion of my 4-year degree (Bachelor of Arts with Honours in Primary Education) back in 2007. 

In the UK, we achieve our QTS (Qualified Teacher Status) through additional exams and proven experience which I also achieved in 2007. My dissertation allowed me to carry out research into how we can motivate young learners to want to read more.  I completed one of my student teaching placements in Arizona, USA and I worked as the Literacy Lead for two summers at a not-for-profit camp in New York, USA.

As an elementary classroom teacher, I developed creative classrooms where students felt safe enough to fail. My passion for reading also allowed me to develop a new career as a high school librarian, teaching reading lessons across the school. I have also taught students English up to the age of 16 at a prestigious online school.

More recently, I have worked within the learning department in a large museum, teaching at a range of online schools and designing curriculum for education resource companies. I also deliver lectures to trainee teachers.

At the heart of my teaching philosophy lies a belief that learning should be an adventure, sprinkled with curiosity and laughter. We can be serious about learning without it always being too serious.

Assessment
Frequency: available upon request
Details: Feedback can be provided if the learner uses the online spelling game. Each time they play, the data surrounding the words that they are struggling with is captured. This data will be removed when the learner unenrolls.
Learners will need to access an online game during the lesson. This will be a second window or tab. When played on a computer or laptop the game also supports the development of typing speed. It can be fiddly to play on a phone.
Learners will be provided with a log in to the online spelling game. For the week that they are enrolled, they can play the games online as often as they like. The game is far better on a computer or laptop. On a phone it can be fiddly to play.

During the lesson, learners will access the game, for a live game with their classmates. They will use a different window or screen to do so. They should mute themselves whilst playing a live game.
