Literacy Wheel- CLICK HERE FOR AN EDITABLE TEMPLATE available on the TES.
Here is a link to a PowerPoint version of the wheel. (Somebody adapted my original)
How It Works/Variations:
This wheel has been designed by The Bulmershe School English Dept. It is designed to make students comfortable with definitions of command words within examinations/controlled assessments/class tasks.
Examples of how it can be used:
- Students can cover the triangle and see if they can match the definition with the correct command word; perfect for exam preparation.
- Peer assess a piece of work checking whether the student has accurately fulfilled the command words requirement in the writing by checking the literacy wheel for the command word and definition.
- Write out the command words and definitions using the wheel.
- Revise/test/check with partners/groups.
Check out these edited/adapted wheels inspired by mine!
