This is something I saw shared that I have adapted to encourage the students to think about performers in more than one topic area. I printed this onto A3 and the idea was that students could use this template at home for revision by simply adding in different performers.
Challenge Grid forces students to recall content from the previous lesson to earlier in the course. More points are awarded for answering questions from way back than the previous lesson.
This serves to give students feedback on what content they need to be revisiting in their personal study time.
I really enjoyed this blog, questioning is something that I am always trying to improve and this really clarified the need to think carefully about the sequencing of the questions we ask.
Attached is a powerpoint that you may find useful for students who finish work early in the lesson.
There is a link to a page that talks about ‘Green TED talks’, it wasn’t really that that caught my eye but the idea of students preparing TED talk. It talks about using the green screen to provide a background and this is something that could be done here in school with the help of IT or SDLs, or it could just be done without. This could work well linking to independent learning and research skills.
