Getting to know your students - what's in a name?

Ruth Tarrant

9th September 2016

This is the final post in the mini-series of blog posts on getting to know your students, and is all about their name! Ideally you ask students to complete the research part of this task as part of their homework, but it is possible to adapt it so that the task is entirely completed in the classroom. I particularly like this activity because if the teacher participates in the same way as the students then you can really start to develop better relationships between students and teachers.
