Antarctica Need to Know Learning Matrix

Need to Know Learning Matrix I use these to assess student understanding and progress through the term and to provide quality feedback without the need for excessive comment writing. I simply put the matrix in the front of the students book, every time I mark their books I highlight the relevant criteria in one colour (usually yellow) and criteria I would like them to attempt in DIRT in another (usually pink). Once the criteria to attempt is achieved I simply tick it off on the matrix. In their books I will write WWW and list the codes for the criteria achieved. I will then draw steps to indicate how to level up and write the corresponding codes of criteria I want them to attempt. The Need to Know questions are based on the lessons & learning objectives over the term, which are also used to create the coded success criteria. I find this technique reduces the time I spend marking books however allows me to provide quality feedback and to clearly see progress over the term. It's great for outline the SoW and encouraging independent learning. Hope it's of use.

Behaviour Cards
Victoria1987Victoria1987

Behaviour Cards

(26)
A selection of cards for positive and negative behaviour. I print the positive behaviours on green and the ones for negative behaviour on red. The negative behaviour cards rather than tell the pupil what they are doing wrong give the instruction for the alternative action that is expected. e.g. If they are talking over the teacher, card says listen when others speak. If a pupil recieves 3 red cards a sanction is issued. If a pupil recieves 3 green cards a reward is issued.

In order develop student independence in the revision process each case study contains a blank templates that encourage students to revise the key content for each of the case studies and examples covered in the AQA GCSE Geography course. These are then followed by an exam question that has been scaffolded to support students. The scaffolds can easily be removed or reduced for those students that do not need them.

Pupil Self Assessment Plenary Sheet

Pupil Self Assessment Plenary Sheet

(0)
Pupils are given the sheet and as part of the plenary each lesson they simply write the date, what they learnt and assess how well they understood what was being taught. I'd recommend that pupils keep it in a plastic wallet in their books. Pupil and teacher to refer to the sheet regularly to assess progress, determine areas for extra support and to aid revision. Can be used daily, weekly or every few lessons.
