How to do DIRT (Dedicated improvement reflection time) in social science

How to do DIRT (Dedicated improvement reflection time) in social science

This is a life-saver when it comes to marking and student reflection over teacher feedback!!!WHY THIS RESOURCE IS SO GOOD?1. Students spend more time reflecting on the feedback you give them.2. Teacher feedback is still effective & meaningful but limited to key areas. 3. Less time spent on re-marking improved work due to this quick method.I have used this method to mark A-Level sociology, and i love it and the students love all the feedback! this is especially useful for large groups, where often it can be difficult to set essays due to copious amounts of marking. This resource includes a power point presentation which explains how to mark using this method (i have designed it so that you can use it to show your students).
