Poundland Pedagogy

Our second Magic Monday “Workshop of Wonder” was delivered by Sam Bulmer from our English department.  Sam shared with us how she is using “Poundland Pedagogy” in her lessons as well as providing us with the opportunity to think about how we might use it in our own lessons.

Sam’s interest in this began with a book by Isabella Wallace entitled “Pimp Your Lesson

Sam then went on to share some ideas for how we could use a range of everyday household objects that cost £1 or less in our lessons
