compendium

When I was a kid trying to get an "A" at school my dad bought us a set of Encyclopedia Britannica, which were a large set of books. With no Internet (1960's) I used to take a book to my room and read as much as I could and found the information fascinating, I also got a copy of Wilfred D Best Students'Companion which helped with my general knowledge when we went to quiz nights. After becoming a teacher I felt students should get as much general knowledge as possible so with the aid of dictionaries and reference books I started to build a collection of works as a 'student compendium'.

ency

During my Digital Media, Multimedia and some VET courses I got my students to work on The STEAMER book of knowledge, especially advanced students that complete task ahead of time, this was my fall back lessons for those clever or advanced students, these were asked to pick one of the areas of study and create a cover page, find some interesting facts (usually via the Internet) and put their findings into a chapter of the book The book was 138 pages long at my retirement from teaching.

STEAMER Stands for

Science, Technology, English, Arts, Mathematics, Environment and Religion.

Eventually I gathered sufficient to create the Student Compendium and also a Steamer Book of Knowledge, so here they are compiled mainly by myself with student support so it might help some of you get that elusive "A"

Best of luck Peter J Faulks
