Show and assess progress with these ‘plenary pyramid’ templates. Great as a lesson plenary, or a structure for peer assessment. Includes a display slide. www.acornteachingresources.com
These are intended to be viewed as the students see the room, so they’re suitable to display on the screen / whiteboard. They’re in a dyslexia friendly font and should be easy to edit to suit your requirements. Each table or group can be edited (colour etc.) for carousel / differentiation purposes. It’s best to keep a master copy of the template you use and duplicate it as needed. To duplicate a slide, simply right click on it and click ‘duplicate slide’. The final slide is a ‘build you own’ template. Drag and drop from the units provided, copy and paste where necessary to suit your own classroom layout. These are fully editable.

The main aim is… This is an exam question answer planning tool. It was developed for lower ability students; to help them form an answer to a long exam question and to practise their exam technique. It is intended to help students see they do have the necessary understanding, but also answer the question correctly to achieve the higher marks. Key ideas and content… The students tackle an exam question in steps. The idea is the students have everything they need on the sheet in front of them, to help focus lower ability students and coach them in answering longer exam questions. Students can apply the same process to an actual exam. Students can develop their exam question technique (application of key terms, use of connectives, structure etc.) to access the higher marks. To differentiate… Work through the steps as a class, then allow the students to answer the actual question. If using a structure – give time for teach section (a minute per mark?). Before photocopying, provide subheadings to help students structure their answer. Several colour coded versions have been included to enable carousel activities / differentiated activities / group work etc. To extend… Higher ability students could write their own mark scheme for the question on the back. Attach SPaG marks. Use the sheet with the ‘structure’ box instead of the thought bubble. The students will have to draw the horizontal lines depending on the structure / number of paragraphs. Higher ability students could plan their answer on the lined graphic, and then write their actual answer on lined paper / on the back. To assess… Can be assessed by the teacher against the mark scheme. Provide students with a mark scheme and allow them to assess/see where the marks come from.
