Students facilitate and stretch themselves by selecting the level of difficulty/ questions they choose. The Power Point is comprised of two Independent tasks and two group tasks. They aim of the session is for students to compete in Olympic style events. The person with the less points, wins Gold, second least Silver and Bronze for third place. Prizes are optional and are based upon a rewards system I am trialling of offering students the choice between an Educational reward and a treat e.g. sweets etc. **I have used this resource with my Year 9’s and 10’s as a fun end of year assessment which they loved. They commented that is was refreshing to assess their learning without having to write a mock and loved worked independently as well as teams. This is a reusable resource and can easily be adapted with your own questions and differing media forms, added in. ** NOTE: I am following EDUQAS Teaching Model 1 in my teaching/ SOW. Moreover, each lesson has a task whereby students RAG (Red, Amber, Green) what they have learnt in the lesson against an Examiner checklist (Differentiation, peer assessment). (Each lesson is laid out as I teach my own class but I have added notes at the bottom of some of the slides e.g. on the Media Teaser, to aide teachers. All lessons are developed with differentiation, assessment/challenge as well as engagement entrenched heavily within all my resources. Moreover, constant reference is made throughout to the selected Examiner Media. If you liked this resource and found it useful, it would be greatly appreciated if you could feedback or rate my resource as I am constantly trying to adapt and refine my resources to improve the learning of my students.
