Posters stuck up in each corner of the room?
How It Works:
When a teacher has set a task and activity has been completed; to check on the understanding of the students, how about you ask them to move to the learning zone that reflects their level of understanding...?
One corner- red smiley
One corner- yellow smiley
One corner- green smiley
One corner/TEACHERS DESK- Purple/Turquoise (Any colour!!)
- Red- Do not understand
- Yellow- I am OK-ish
- Green- I am confident and able
- TEACHERS DESK- STUDENT IS CONFIDENT TO EXPLAIN/ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS TO THE CLASS? Particularly good for pushing your gifted and talented students?
The stations above can be referenced via levels/grades.
Some students may not feel confident in getting up and moving to a zone- especially if they do not understand- thats why it is important to embed this self reflection style of activity into your learning.
This post was inspired by my visit to Woodside High School in London
