241- Keep this resource in store for those times when you’re overloaded and need to let the students do a bit of the work. Begin with homework – 1 or 2 depending on amount and complexity - that don’t require marking. The first task will be the ‘flipped learning’ or revision content you want students to research, the second checks they’ve done it. Although these are designed for revision, set in advance of a new topic and you’ve got students engaged already.
These tasks lend themselves to any topic or content subject and all you have to do by way of preparation is apply the tasks to the specifics of your subject and provide some guidance as to where students can find information, whether that’s in the text book, online or reference books.
Slide one has 6 images – choose any icon to click on in a way that engages the class [throw a di, ask a question, choose a quiet student to make the choice]. A hyperlink will take you straight to the relevant slide, where the tasks will come up in steps on your click [adapt the wording of these to suit your specifics if you wish]. Once homework is set, ‘end show’ to get back to slide 1 and store for the next session.
Each task is explained in your ‘recipe for success’ word document and alternatives or ways to differentiate suggested. The central idea is to get students helping each other while you facilitate only when required.
