Currently loving this site. I have been putting famous speeches from History into it for display. (e.g. this and this.)

I LOVE this! Instant starter activities and very cool indeed!

It actually makes the meaning of some texts very clear visually:

Elizabeth I speech

Dream

Churchill

It seems all the more chilling all chopped up and dissected like that D.

Right, off to roll up a trouser leg, do some sort of complex handshake and wear gold chains - masonic lodge or 80s hip-hop? I'm confused now...

This is excellent I have used it to design a topic title page that the students can tick off when they have done that topic. Also might use it for a darts type key words starter activity with the remote mouse. Thanks for the heads up!!

What a fab tool. Put it into use straight away.

I mixed up a quote from Gladstone that the Higher class should have taken notes on as part of homework to see who could identify the speech and explain what the gist of it was.

I then had another made from a bbc revision page about democracy and asked each pupil in turn to come up and explain why the key word was important to the topic and then cross it off on the IWB.

Made a very good start to the lesson, so thanks for the inspiration

Its great! However Norfolk LEA in their infinite wisdom have banned the site.

WHY is this a constant battle?!?!?
Experience is that marvelous thing that enables you recognize a mistake when you make it again.
