This presentation provides an editable template and instructions for an activity I developed to support and push students in applying theory to various industries and products. One of the key challenges I have found with my classes is the development of application skills. I have seen a positive impact in the development of application skills in their essay writing as a result of regular use of this activity. This activity engages students and is a useful piece of formative assessment to inform future planning.
This PowerPoint aims to promote higher order thinking. I used this with my class to set the scene for an exam technique lesson so that we could discuss the different types of thinking and different skills they will be required to exhibit in their essay writing. This was useful in helping students understand what is expected of them in the classroom and outside of the classroom in order for them to be successful. Lots of great opportunities for debate and discussion.
