J. Salter – Trainee teacher of Geography

My success story was in my home placement.  The Y7 complete learning on the topic of ‘Plastics’.  During the scheme of work there was no mention of the increase in plastic waste during the COVID-19 pandemic.  As this subject matter was new, I conducted research into plastic waste increase at this time.  Using my own research from my dissertation I adapted this to suit the ability level of the pupils.  I’m extremely proud of this as it allows me to pass on current expert knowledge to the pupils which is relevant to the world we currently live in.
