Attention Germiston teachers: here are some creative ideas for black and white photocopies

April 9, 2013 · Print This Article

Teachers in Germiston know how often they have to use black and white copies in their institutions. Worksheets are a great way to get students and learners to participate in practical exercises, but you need a lot of them on a regular basis so that everyone in your class can get one.

The process of putting together a memorable worksheet that will keep your students’ attention can be tough, so here’s some tips to making that knowledge stick.

  • Incorporate puzzles
    Worksheets that are simple questions and answers are okay, but they won’t keep your students attention every time, as they can get a bit boring. Puzzles on the other hand act as a sort of game for the student completing his or her homework. Word search, crosswords and other fun puzzles featuring the facts and details from the syllabus are perfect for ensuring students enjoy the work – and the facts will stay put in their minds far more effectively. Plus, there are plenty of easy to use puzzle makers available on the Internet!
  • Make it visually stimulating
    Black and white copied worksheets needn’t be boring to look at. Add some illustrations, speech bubbles and other interesting elements around the edges of the worksheet for an exciting and stimulating worksheet that’s going to hold your student’s interest. Line art is a good choice for illustrations, as these can be coloured in, helping students add their own creativity to the worksheet.
  • Keep them fresh
    There are some concerns amongst teachers today that the age-old worksheet is dying out due to over use. With teachers going the simple route, such as “circle the right answer” or asking a question and leaving a blank space for an answer, worksheets are becoming monotonous. The trick here is to not over use worksheets, but when you do, to keep them exciting, fresh and engaging.
