I wrote this having been inspired by a twilight INSET at my school promoting the benefits of low stakes quizzes and knowledge organisers. This is how i used it with my year 9 foundation group.
At the beginning of the unit i gave everyone an A4 colour copy of the knowledge organsier. Every lesson i referred to this page and talked through the previous lesson and,also, where we are going in todays journey. After i had introduced all topics, we spent the next few lessons working through the mini-tests to ensure as much fluency as i could muster!
Having used them, i think the biggest drawback was that students were reliant on this sheet and i should have demanded students spend time re-producing the important elements of this knowledge organiser so they could recall the information for themselves.
I also felt that the questions became progressively more difficult and this thwarted fluency a little, especially for my weaker students.
There’s always next time …
