Notes based on INSET delivered on 3rd September 2013
Progress is the development of understanding between two points in time. It doesn’t have to be demonstrated through level it can be as simple as accumulating knowledge, demonstrating understanding and applying skill and technique.
what affects progress?
- Listening versus doing
- Repeating versus Applying
- Discussing versus Telling
Feedback is the most powerful learning and teaching strategy for progress. Think of creative ways you can vary its delivery but make sure you maintain its effectiveness.
Types of academic progress
Academic understanding (New topics)
Academic application (Higher end Blooms taxonomy)
Think how you are going to measure progress has taken place and how are you going to evidence it.
Quality Success criteria is paramount.
- Students annotating their notes. ( I did this because……) see this and more by downloading ‘Top tips for Proving Pupil Progress‘ by Claire Gadsby
- Students teach or explain to someone else.
- Complete; Assess; Feedback; Repeat. ( students pass their work to a peer to assess and feedback before adding suggestions to the task)
- Target board (see targeting visible progress by @teamtait)
- Use technology applications such as Padlet. (see this week I’ve mostly been using padlet by @School_LN)
- Use a Learning summary resource see below.
