Walt and pals

17th March 2006 at 00:00
A serious debate continues in The TES Scotland chatroom, where one teacher asks whether anyone is using WALT and WILF in their classrooms (formative assessment guff, if you don't know).

"Sorry . . . maybe this a primary thing but never heard of it," says another.

Just to clear up the confusion, WALT is "We are learning to . . ." and WILF is "What I am looking for . . ."

And so to one addition. Let's not forget Henry Walpole's addendum to WALT and WILF: "What all now know."

Perhaps not.
