You will now swap your paper in a round robin swap When you look at the new paper you are looking for twosimilarities and one difference (like two truths and a lie) This is showing how you can scaffold the thinking up a level For example, in her class on Friday, Warunee used a selection ofco-operative learning strategies to keep scaffolding the learningup a level: Think Pair Share to recap the learning from the last lesson (and the studentsidentified all aspects of the learning outcome [Colours, fruit, is / are, a / an:Use colour to describe fruit in a sentence) Human continuum to then order the students based on their confidence Used this to then create mixed ability groups Roles were then added to create co-operative groups around a task wherestudents were creating sentences using materials Numbered heads together was then added to share sentences. Some studentswho were selected (by number) to share were weaker students but, with groupsupport, they very successfully read aloud their group’s responsesSCAFFOLD THE THINKING UP A LEVEL
JIGSAW READFrom: Unlocking Formative Assessment: Practical strategies for enhancing students’learning in the primary and intermediate classroom (chapter 2)Shirley Clarke, Helen Timperley, John HattieJIGSAW1. Form a Home Group with a shared reading and task2. In the Home Group divide the reading (or this could be done for the group by the teacher) anddecide who will read each segment). Decisions can be based on reader strengths / interests3. Readers with the same segments then move to sit together at the teacher’s signal. Thisbecomes the expert group for that segment.4. The goal for each group is signalled. Each member needs to become an expert in theirsegment to take back the learning to the Home Group5. Read the article making notes / underlining key points that relate to the goal6. The group then work towards their goal by discussing the notes and key points. They ensurethey have a statement or summary to take back to their Home Group. This could be helpedby including group roles and teacher prompting7. Experts return to their Home Group where they take turns and each Expert shares theirstatement or summary and then makes sure that each Home Group member understands8. The Home Group checks they have carried out what is required of them by the task
WHY SHOULD YOU USE AND SHARESPECIFIC LEARNING OUTCOMES WITHSTUDENTS?Create a one-page guide in English for the other teachers who have not been tothese workshops that explains using only key points each of the reading sectionsyour group has been involved in. This guide can be called ‘A Guide to CreatingOngoing Learning’.You may create your guide using headings, subheadings, bullet points, and othervisual aspects to help you to explain (rather than using large chunks of text)At the end of the task:• Pass your one-page guide to the next table• When you receive the one-page guide from another group have a read of theirwork• On a separate piece of paper write up the following headings and give themfeedback:• What aspects of the guide are effective and useful?• What could now be added or made clear in the guide?
