Strategy grid

Listening/reading/writing activity

How it works?

Pick a strategy such as ‘Before listening: Think of 10 words we might hear’ and then conduct the task.
Afterwards, ask pupils to assess the strategy by completing the grid.
Once you’ve created a strategy ‘bank’, encourage pupils to look back on their assessment grid and to choose which strategy they would like to use.


You could perhaps have colour coordinated grids in their books for each skill for quick reference.
Could be adapted for use during video as well – perhaps showing clips with only sound – or then no sound at all.
