We kicked off our Sept with this mantra and a question to all staff: 'No burnout. Ever. What do we need to change?' Openness and honesty is crucial. No elephants! For us it's about creating and maintaining systems that allow leaders to lead, teachers to teach, kids to learn.

Notice that Macbeth is rather missing the point here: the prophecy can "commence in a truth" and still be harmful or treacherous to him. Maybe his ambition is blinding him to a clear reading. Not for the last time.

Deadline: Fri 27th September

Homework task:

Questions (6 mark questions)

1.            Describe two differences between short-term memory (STM) and long-term  

           memory (LTM).                                                                                                          (3 marks + 3 marks)

2.            In relation to short-term memory, what is meant by the terms encoding, capacity

      and duration.                                                                          (2 marks + 2 marks + 2 marks)

3.            Zac is playing a computer game which involves sorting coloured shapes that appear on the screen. He has to capture the shapes and drag them to the appropriate collection box. While he plays, he chats to Dan about a football match.

When he has completed Level 1, he moves on to Level 2.  Here, the shapes are replaced by words that have to be sorted according to their meaning. Zac begins to make mistakes and so stops talking to Dan.

With reference to features of the working memory model, explain why Zac can easily cope with Level 1 and chat to Dan but, when he gets to Level 2, he cannot do both things at the same time.                                                                                                                                                                 (6 marks)
