      Cornell style note taking sheet

      Cornell style note taking sheet

      This is a modified version of a note taking scaffold based around the Cornell model. Students should initially complete the title and objectives. They should then add processed information into the main notes section - this can be in the form of prose, bullet points or even mind maps. Simultaneously they should add key terminology and most importantly fill in the left hand column. This is a reflective section, basically is a record of their inner voice. After the note taking is complete then students should write a short summary (3-4 sentences) and then do the M.I.P. M.I.P. stands for most important point - this should be no more than 3 words (ideally 1). This scaffold can be used with any subject, any age and for any form of input; e.g. video, teacher talk, written information, Internet research.

      WIKI - What I know initially - scaffold for student note taking

      WIKI - What I know initially - scaffold for student note taking

      This is a scaffold for students to make notes about any particular topic. Works well if the initial ideas section is first completed before being taught. The remaining sections are then filled in during and/or after they have been taught the topic. I have used this with Y7 through to Y13 primarily with science, however, it could be used with any subject and any age range.

      WIKI teach - What I know I teach scaffold

      WIKI teach - What I know I teach scaffold

      This is a scaffold I designed for using with students to encourage them to make notes that they can then use to teach another student (or small group of students). They then get feedback from their peer before repeating the process finally being reviewed by the last student they teach. I use this to great success with Y7 through to Y13 for the teaching of science. It could however be used with any subject and any age range.

      Peer Evaluation Rubric for Groups

      Peer Evaluation Rubric for Groups

      In an effort to hold all group members accountable for the work they do when working with others, this simple rubric allows for students to asses their peers on their contributions to the group. It is separated into four components which include participation, behavior, on task behaviors, and work. Students will rank each peer on a level 1, 2, or 3. This grade can be used as you please but will offer valuable insight into how each team member carried himself/herself in the groupwork. The rubric is color coded, and user friendly. Take your grades and groupwork to a whole new level. Students always work harder when they know they are going to be held accountable for their actions :)

      Back To School Bobbleheads (US) - a print and go activity for the first days back to school

      Back To School Bobbleheads (US) - a print and go activity for the first days back to school

      Back to School Bobbleheads is a fun activity to get to know your class during the first days back to school. It also provides opportunities to assess how well children can understand and follow verbal instructions - great for children with English as an additional language! The activity is in four parts: designing a head, designing a t-shirt, making a key and using their responses in the key to write about themselves. The answers your children give will create a design that is unique to them. When the activity has been completed, cut out both parts, glue together and string on bunting for an unusual classroom display. Or simply pin to a wall or notice board. The pack contains everything you need - just print and go!

      End of Year (Anonymous) Student Reflective Surveys

      End of Year (Anonymous) Student Reflective Surveys

      I have always found anonymous reflective surveys to be a crucial personal growth process as a teacher. This simple 13 question survey allows students to reflect on their time in the classroom mainly focusing on safety, leadership, relationships, content mastery, and goals. This adaptable and customizable survey can be used as a progress monitoring tool or an end of year survey. I hope this helps open communication and reflection for you and your students as much as it has for me!
