Marking - key codes

(0)
These can be printed at A3 size and placed around the room. In addition I print 2 per A4 page and then students stick on the reverse of their exercise books. Using these codes has saved me around 70% of my marking time - better quality feedback but for far less time - win win!!

Cornell style note taking sheet
wilko70wilko70

Cornell style note taking sheet

(0)
This is a modified version of a note taking scaffold based around the Cornell model. Students should initially complete the title and objectives. They should then add processed information into the main notes section - this can be in the form of prose, bullet points or even mind maps. Simultaneously they should add key terminology and most importantly fill in the left hand column. This is a reflective section, basically is a record of their inner voice. After the note taking is complete then students should write a short summary (3-4 sentences) and then do the M.I.P. M.I.P. stands for most important point - this should be no more than 3 words (ideally 1). This scaffold can be used with any subject, any age and for any form of input; e.g. video, teacher talk, written information, Internet research.

Can also be used mid way through a lesson as a break activity. Alternatively students can use the cards to quiz each other in groups of four or place cards down on the table and only turn over if they can either recall the definition or the word corresponding to the information on the reverse.

QED - and feedback

QED - and feedback

(0)
QED = Quality Efficiency Demonstrable (my own term!). This was a presentation I used to encourage staff to consider the 3 key issues when designing assessment strategies for students. Basically - all resources and strategies should always ensure quality feedback to the learners. All must ensure efficiency and whenever possible reduce current work load rather than add to it. Finally, as monitoring is always an aspect of our role as teachers, the resources and strategies should provide demonstrable evidence of quality feedback to a third party, be that Middle leaders, SLT or OFSTED. If you download and want further information then please contact me.

Glossary definition template

Glossary definition template

This can be used to test students' retention of key words from their glossaries. This is best used as a starter to the lesson. 5 key words or phrases can be read from the appropriate glossary. Sheets can be collected in and the words marked for spelling. The definitions can be given a mark out of 2. Once returned the students can check and correct their answers and evaluate their performance using the scaffolded questions. This resource can be used with any of the glossaries... KS3 Year 7, KS3 Year 8, KS3 Year 9, GCSE Biology, GCSE Chemistry, GCSE Physics, AS Biology or A2 Biology. This also works well when used regularly in conjunction with Quick quiz templates. Best printed A4, 2 per side and back to back. They can then be cut in half. If folded the section including name and date can then be stuck down into exercise books at a later stage. (Far quicker to mark these loose rather than pre-stuck into books!)
WIKI - What I know initially - scaffold for student note taking

WIKI - What I know initially - scaffold for student note taking

(0)
This is a scaffold for students to make notes about any particular topic. Works well if the initial ideas section is first completed before being taught. The remaining sections are then filled in during and/or after they have been taught the topic. I have used this with Y7 through to Y13 primarily with science, however, it could be used with any subject and any age range.

BAAs book feedback sheets

Book analysis and assessment sheets. These are used for 'deep marking' of exercise books / files once every half term or so. They work best when printed 4 per A4 page. The red version is to highlight to the student that there are more issues than praise. I am currently improving these so will upload the improved versions once completed. Please let me know how useful you find these.
