Reflective Learning Tool Versatile and Unique

Reflective Learning Tool Versatile and Unique

The resource preview is presented as a series of samples of permutations of how this self-reflective tool can be used. Full resource on purchase has the mastersheet within it. The ‘Head, Heart …’ tool has been uniquely developed by me as part of my educational practice over the last ten years as a creative consultant and outstanding classroom educator and training deliverer. A generic tool to use during or after any learning sequence for junior students right through the secondary years and any CPD that you deliver or mentoring that you do. It aims to help you and your students understand what they are learning, how they are feeling about their learning, what they would like to change about the learning and what they think will help them in their next or future learning experiences. Based on the whole learner experience, not just who they are in their heads today, the tool helps the teacher get a deeper understanding of who their learners are, how they are responding to learning and the teaching and how they are shaping their learning futures. Enables teachers or trainers to open discussions on emotional well-being, cognition and learning to learn as well as build resilience and manage expectations. Simple for students to engage with and quick to administer either as mini-plenaries or as end of lesson or end of learning sequence plenaries. Potential for building vocabulary to name and separate thinking from feelings and emotions and learn to assert and voice their experience to build increasingly positive experiences in the future. Ways to use the ‘Head, Heart …’ Self-Reflective Tool: • As a basis for ‘voxpops’ • Self-reflective tool • Quick tests of the ‘temperature’ of your teaching for your self-refection • Student voice • Building future learning/career aspirations • Advocacy for the skills used in English and English Literature • Plenaries and mini plenaries • Imagining the experiences of others (empathy work and understanding characters Who and what the tool is suited to: • Suits teachers and learners at KS2, KS3, KS4 and KS5 • Suits evaluation of CPD delivery • Suits anyone in a mentoring role

Card sort: video explanation

Card sort: video explanation

This video explains how to do a card sort activity in class. I describe the activity and the learning outcomes in the video. Give pupils a variety of different answers to a question, such as ‘Why did America experience a boom in the 1920’s?’ Each answer is on a separate card. Pupils, alone, in pairs or groups must rank the answers based on a chosen criteria—most money, most important to society, needs money the most. Follow up activities can include: • Pupils writing reasons for their views and feeding back as a class. • Creating an essay or speech based on the ideas. • Visiting other pupils work and trying to persuade them to change their order, which can lead to discussion. • Joining another group and agreeing on a top 3. • Swapping groups and justifying their ideas in front of the class. • Ranking the ideas from the viewpoint of someone else in society such as a businessman, a parent, a tourist, someone unemployed. • A class debate based on the ideas.
