3 years ago, we made 📖reading for pleasure📚our focus @FearnhillSchool. 56% of yr 7 cohort had below chronological age reading age and 29% struggled with phonics. So, how did we do it? Here's 1 powerful thing we did that worked. #teamenglish #Reading
@FearnhillSchool We started with the English KS3 curriculum by teaching yr 7 & 8 2 challenging novels back-2-back according to the 'faster read' approach from the @SussexUni 'Just reading' study where 2 novels are read at a faster pace, pausing for vocab work and comprehension checking.
How did we do it? Well, we made sure that SLT knew what to expect when visiting lessons; reading, reading and more reading! Very little writing in books

What are your reading goals in 2023? Here are the books we read and liked in the last 12 months, and the ones we shared thorough our Marcellus Book of the Month recos. What did you read and like in 2022 and recommend we should read too?

Jan: "Zero to One" by Peter Thiel

Read it today if you haven't already. The book gives a fresh perspective on building a successful business. We ourselves have sought inspiration from the book in starting and building Marcellus.

Feb: “The Platform Delusion: Who Wins and Who Loses in the Age of Tech Titans” by Jonathan Knee.

The book questions the moats of FAANG stocks, arguing that they are far weaker than commonly accepted. And we all know what's happened in the last few months!

🚨A new front has opened up in the push to privatize #schools.🚨

At Fox News Jeb Bush explicitly cited #soldastory as a reason we need #AZEd #schoolvouchers. @edvoters @BadassTeachersA @Network4pubEd @PV4PS 👇

#Reading is going to be the new wedge issue to pitch #schoolvouchers /ESAs to parents understandably frustrated at #scienceofreading issues but who were turned off by the voucher culture war pitch.

Just days before writing this Fox column and citing #reading as a reason states need #azed style #schoolvouchers Bush was honoring voucher hero @DougDucey at the annual ExcelInEd meeting

@FearnhillSchool has recently gone from RI to Good and our approach to reading across school was mentioned in the report as a strength. This thread outlines the way we run reading interventions and outlines some of the challenges and things that worked for us 🧵
We started by training a few key people to deliver reading fluency/echo reading sessions and administer the YARC test. Huge thanks goes to @HertsEnglish and @HfLSecondaryEng for their fantastic training and support.
We tested our KS3 students with the YARC single word reader test - quick and simple and only needed 5 mins out of lesson - then YARC tested any with below age reading. Planned 4 strands for intervention to ensure sessions were tailored to needs…

#Cuckold #Hotwife #Wannabe #Reading I enjoyed reading Katie’s 2019 experiential book –“How to be Hot”. Short and pithy primer for wife and couples (44 pages) with a few typos. My reflections @podofeleus @_ryangould99 @HotwifeStudy 🧵1/17…
This book is a sequentially structured helicopter view of lessons learned over perhaps 2 decades plus from pre-courtship to becoming established hotwife, blogger, and aspirant erotica novelist. However, Katie has vanished from the net now. See contents list 2/17 Image
I really appreciated: the emphasis on sexual comms between couples outside of the bedroom, clear positive off-ramps for the wife and couple at every stage, useful non bedroom ideas on games and role plays, and a good checklist for guys to be careful of what they wish for! 3/17

How do you remember what you learn? Using a Personal Knowledge Management (PKM) system can help. A PKM system is a set of tools and processes that help you capture, organize, and review notes and information.
You create a second brain. Whenever you need notes on this or that subject, they are easily available.

So, what tools should be in your system? You need to solve for 3 steps.
1️⃣ Capture. How do you capture your notes & highlights? Your main capture tool will be based around how you consume content. For many readers today, @AmazonKindle is the best capture tool as it lets you easily highlight books, add notes, and export these out of Kindle.

Thread สำหรับ #DEK66 ท่องศัพท์อย่างไร !?
ให้ #ปังปุริเย่ อ่าน Reading ออก 70-80%
เดาศัพท์ในข้อสอบ Paragraph Completion
#TGAT #ALEVEL พร้อมแล้ว "ลุย" กันเลย !!
ที่ Thread นี้ >< !!
Step 1 : Scope "ศัพท์" ก่อนว่าจะท่อง
แค่ไหน !? เท่าไหร !? หาที่ไหน !?
คำตอบ "จากข้อสอบย้อนหลัง 5 ปี"
เพร่าะข้อสอบ "TGAT (GAT ENG)"
และ "ALEVEL (9สามัญ ENG)"
ขนาดปีที่แล้ว #ยากสุดในประวัติศาสตร์
ยัง based ศัพท์จากของ "ยาก-กลาง"
จากข้อสอบ 5 ปีก่อนหน้า 60-64 เลย
5 ปีจำให้ขึ้นใจ
เอาล่ะ หาข้อสอบ "5 ปีแล้ว" ท่องยังไง !?
แบ่งเป็น Parts ข้อสอบก่อน
Conversation / Grammar (Cloze) / Vocab (Synonyms-Cloze) / Reading โดยเราจะเน้นที่ Vocab + Reading เป็นหลัก
Vocab >> ดู choices
ของข้อสอบ GAT และ 9 สามัญ
จะได้ประมาณ ข้อละ 5 คำ*10-15ข้อต่อปี*5
= 250-375 คำแล้ว

I recently read "The Monk who sold his Ferrari" by our beloved Robin Sharma. Needless to say, it's a very well written book with lots of values.

Here are 5 life lessons from the above-mentioned book.


#productivity #growth #books #reading

In search of wisdom and happiness, the Protagonist, a seven-figure-earning lawyer, surrenders his possessions and traveled to the Himalayan foothills to study the wisdom of the Sages.

It is a story about materialistic success transforming into true prosperity.
1. Positive Thoughts

The quality of your life is determined by the quality of your thoughts. Mastering your mind means seeing setbacks as opportunities.

Analyzing all #BarclaysWSL teams' 1st pass after their kickoffs from 18/19 to 20/21

🔑 Takeaway: Some teams do have different tactics overall &/or for different game states

🧵 is alphabetical, so starting with @ArsenalWFC

Always more long & less accurate passes when losing!
For @AVWFCOfficial there's just the one season.

Ignore winning game states since there were only 2... but they exclusively played very long balls up the pitch when drawing, but were more conservative while losing (with some long balls as well, but not just long passes)

Now @BCFCWomen

Small sample again for winning game states. But they also changed their tactics over these 3 seasons, opting for more long passes across them. But not much of a pattern when breaking down by game state. Usually a lil less accurate when drawing tho
