Synopsis

Mrs Ockleton's Rainbow Kite and Other Tales Thinking Through Literature by Garry Burnett

Through the various activities, teachers will have the opportunity to develop their students' many intelligences in relation to the use and understanding of English. In addition, the activities will develop students' thinking skills and creativity and improve exam performance. The activities use Eli Goldratt's Theory of Constraints model as a framework and are based on original stories. These stories provide an exciting but accessible opportunity to develop students' emotional and intellectual responses to fiction and their ability to select and organise information, and read, write and think imaginatively. All the activities are described with clear learning objectives for the teacher and student.
