This download includes four PLC templates: teachers need simply need to add the list of topics for their respective subjects and they are ready to go. On the reverse side of each learning checklist is a series of metacognitive reflection tasks and target-setting activities: this enhances the usefulness of the learning checklist and helps students to use of their self-monitoring and evaluation work to steer, direct and regulate learning.
Personal Learning Checklists (PLCs) feature lists of all required learning for a unit or course: students run through the list, indicating for each topic how confident they feel in relation to it and how secure their learning is.
Personal learning checklists are a fantastic example of self-regulated learning and metacognition since students can use them to monitor and evaluate their learning and then plan and regulate it accordingly.
Personal Learning Checklists should be used by all teachers in all subjects: they are especially useful in subjects where students are preparing for formal summative assessments [exams] and, ideally, the list of topics on the checklist should be faithful to the exam specification they are using.
Please note: the preview images depict completed templates for illustrative purposes, teachers will need to add topics for their respective subjects/units before using the PLCs.
