What to do:
Give your students a piece of paper. Ask them to fold the page in half. Then again. Then again! That will make 8 sections. (You can pick as many or as few sections as you like, I would suggest 4 be the minimum and 8 maximum- but use both sides?)
You then have lots of options with what to do with the different sections. It will essentially depend on the type of lesson you are running.
1 block for...
- Command Words
- Common Questions
- Typical Mistakes
- Key Facts
- Exam questions
- Useful Websites/Page references
- Additional info
Or you can use the page as a revision page- dividing each section into topics- students can then use a variety of revision methods for each block.
Students can fill in a box each and pass their paper on to their peers to add more information to it.
They can answer a question, get feedback and try the question again.
See here and here.
Students can also use this as a planning tool- use each box for a different section of an essay! (See Peer Production line post) or, students write a 6 mark question; 1 mark in each box? 1 box for peer reflection and 1 for self/teacher comments? Or- PEEL- point, evidence, explain and link?
You can also get the students to make Foldables from their paper.
