Basecamp resources page
We draw resources from a lot of different places - and share them in many ways, as part of the training. That's deliberate because we want everyone to be aware of, and choose the methods that will work best for their own teaching. That does however make keeping track of everything tricky, so this is the one definitive page where every resource and guide is kept, approximately in the order it is used on the day. Please post any questions in our group on Yammer.

For anyone not enrolled on Star Classroom, or not a member of staff at the David Ross Education Trust: this page is public however most of the resources here will require your dret.cloud login to access.

How to use your Star Classroom Screen in "Basic Mode"
