Women's Suffrage Learning Matrix

Women's Suffrage Learning Matrix

(0)
Need to Know Learning Matrix Topic - Women's Suffrage and the Right to Vote 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.

Sustainability, Environment - Types of Pollution

(33)
Powerpoint and card sort on the different types of pollution. This was designed for a Set 3 group with a wide range of abilities (right from 2a to 5c) and they loved the Simpson theme throughout the lesson. The card sort was given to the pupils as just the images, types of pollution and the sources then as the higher ability completed it they were given the effects to sort. The lower ability students were given very simple effect cards with two or three words on each but I'm unable to find that document to add to the resource
