The 20 Grid - revision

The 20 Grid - revision

The 20 grid can be used by pretty much any subject for revision or making progress in a topic. To go with the 20 grid you will need to create a question sheet for your topic with lots of questions varying in difficulty. Pupils can select their own 20 questions to answer from the question sheet, based on their own understanding and knowledge. The grid is used to push students to make progress, as they need to select 3 hard (facebook thumb) and 2 extremely difficult (skulls) styles of question, and then practice these styles of questions a few more times. I find the use of this grid works well with mixed ability groups, it is a self differentiation method, and allows weaker ability students to access some of the work straight away. I also whip this resource out with extremely needy groups who are constantly asking for help or to check their work, because it limits the chances for them to ask a friend or myself.

De Bono Thinking Hats Selector Wheel - Descriptions of each hat / selector to decide approach

De Bono Thinking Hats Selector Wheel - Descriptions of each hat / selector to decide approach

Thinking hats were developed by Edward de Bono as a way students can approach an activity or a discussion. The Thinking Hat Selector is a wheel that teachers can spin to randomly select one of the six hats for the whole class or individual groups to use to approach a task or a discussion. If teachers wish to predetermine which hat to use, there are also links to each coloured hat from slide 1. Each hat slide includes some key characteristics / questions for each approach. Please ONLY purchase this if you're doing training or have been trained on the use of thinking hats within your pedagogy, otherwise it may not be a valuable classroom resource for you. Enjoy.
