A checklist that enables pupils to self assess their organisation. Originally designed for use with sixth form students who keep all their work in folders. The checklist tries to impress upon students the reasoning behind each checkpoint.
In order to get a pass at A’Level Maths you MUST put in at least one hour of independent work for every one hour of class time. Just attending class and doing the homework IS NOT ENOUGH except in very exceptional cases.
So what could you be doing in those hours…
-how, hints , why - for each suggestion.
A four page handout outlining in detail what students need to be doing.
Scaffolding help sheet for making contributions in class. The question prompts are categorised into groups depending on whether the pupil is struggling, coping or feeling confident or over confident. It could be used purely for reference or as a working documnet/ record for teacher or pupils to make notes on, prepare for a forthcoming class discussion etc. There is also a reflection exercise.
A template to be handed out to groups to enable them to organised themselves into a study group and accomplish a research task. . NB the teacher needs to choose a meaty chapter/assignment for pupils to tackle.
