This is amazing Stacey! Thank you so much for sharing. I have spent the last 30 minutes scrolling through Dermot’s Twitter page and my emails. Was there a sample First Year Christmas paper or did I make that up?

I've suggested that students use Quizlet to help them revise. I've made sets on every topic on the Junior Cycle and Junior Cert course (and a few LC topics too). There are lots of different games they can play with each set (tip #2)

Students have been asking me for revision advice/help. I've started to create YouTube playlists based on each topic rather than just by year to help students focus on each particular topic (strategy #1)

Continuing last night's theme about revision ideas (#3), here's the link to 20 short questions on every topic from the Junior Cycle course. I use these for class pub quizzes and so parents can orally assess students at home

Right! I read revision notes aloud, the students summarised the most important notes in their copies. Then I distributed a visual notes guide that I found on Twitter, and voila! I'm very impressed!

Another inspiring day at the event at the beautiful Killarney House today. As always, I left inspired by the voices of powerful young women promoting change and a better world.

Frances Rocks at on the power of description quotes Stephen King on how it engages us as 'sensory participants'. But then there's purple prose...
