However you came by this site the important thing is that you have found a door. A door to

Resources that Rock is the comprehensive guide to evaluating
existing resources and developing new ones. If you want engaged learners and to produce successful resources this publication
is for you. The very popular Teaching Ideas sheet "Worksheets that Work" is based on this work and hints at the many
areas Resources that Rock covers. Included is a 19 point checklist you can use to evaluate any resource including texts
books, software and learning packages. When you consider how much time and money goes into developing or buying resources
it makes sense to have a standard by which you can judge them as well as a guide in helping to produce trouble free ones of
your own. I am so sure you will find this a valuable and essential resource that if you buy it before the end of August
and are not completely satisfied it was money well spent I will give you a full refund. You can buy your downloadable
pdf copy here or sample what Worksheets that Work has to offer for free. If you prefer a printed version send me an e-mail and I will post
a copy to you, P&P free* (* This offer is for August only)

Learning Intelligence LQ
LQ is the concept I have developed to describe how learners interact and adapt
to their learning environment. Once aware of how we can manage our learning environment to meet our learning needs
we become less stressed and better learners. Teachers who are aware of this concept are better placed to understand student
behaviour and manage learning more effectively. I have now included a page explaining LQ and you can read more on my Blog at 4c3d.wordpress which has several articles discussing and outlining this concept in more detail. Well worth a visit!
and Talented in the Netherlands
In early April I was invited to attend the annual conference on
Gifted and Talented education in the Netherlands. You can read all about my experiences of using my own LQ and about the conference
in the report on the News and Downloads page.
