They include ideas on collecting information, the strategic use of questioning, giving feedback, and introducing peer and self-assessment.

Collecting information

Ask learners to create one sentence to summarise what they learn about the topic during the end or start of a lesson. You could focus this by telling them to include e.g. what or why or how etc.

In the final end of a lesson learners share with regards to partner:

  • Three new things they have learnt
  • What they found easy
  • Whatever they found difficult
  • Something they wish to learn later on.

Give learners red, yellow and green cards (or they can make these themselves at home). At different points during the lesson, ask them to choose a card and place it to their desk to show exactly how much they understand (red = don’t understand, yellow = partly understand, green = totally understand).

Use post-it notes to evaluate learning. Leia mais
