Hub challenge

  1. 1. Challenge 1 “An outstanding teacher tries to put the fun back into learning; whilst never losing the focus that something challenging and worthwhile is being learnt” Sue Lane, senior consultant, Peterborough
  2. 2. Challenge all your students at the very start of your lesson Choose your level of challenge… Super challenge: Create a title for chapter 3 and 4 – use your timeline to help you. Super-sonic challenge: If you were an animal from ‘Animal Farm’ – who/what would you be? Ultra-sonic challenge: Write what you know about ‘Animal Farm’ so far …BUT your sentences must match the digits in your mobile phone number! For example: if your number was 07724976759 – you’d have to write a sentences made up of a 7 letter word, 7, then 2, 4, 9 etc…
  3. 3. Challenge stars: progress enhancers Use personification to hit a level ___.
  4. 4. Questioning • Plan the questions you’re going to ask – write them on your plan. • Use pose, pause, bounce, pounce – it really does work. • Make sure you ask all students questions – plan to ask your FSM students one day and then G&T girls another… • Give them time. “What else?”  95% of all questions in a lesson come from the teacher.  The average time a teacher waits for a response is 2.7 seconds.
  5. 5. Questioning Thunks: Students are encouraged to'generate imaginative ideas to stimuli; look at and think about things differently and from other points of view and ask "why", "how", "what if" or unusual questions... Try them on your class and see what happens - you'll be amazed where the ensuing conversations may lead. And remember, there are no right or wrong answers with these questions. Is there more future or past? Can you cast a shadow into a dark room? In a dark room what does a mirror reflect? Can you touch the wind? Can you touch a rainbow? Is there more happiness or sadness in the world? When preparing for ‘Romeo and Juliet’ CA focused on the theme hate – students were asked: how love survive without hate? Can hate survive without love?
  6. 6. Questioning ‘Oops! Helping Children Learn Accidently’ Hywel Roberts 8 great ways a teacher can make questions important in their classroom: 1) Teacher vocalising thinking and wonder out loud. I’m really wondering how we are going to convince the old lady to leave her home. 2) Teacher fallibility. I really don’t know the answer to this…do you? 3) Teacher modelling questioning for students. The questions I have for the old lady are: how are you going to cope on this island alone? Etc. What are yours? 4) Teacher provides opportunities for students to practice their skills. Hot seating, generate questions for press conference, create own exam questions… Why does Orwell use the verb ‘whimper’ to describe Napoleon…? Because whimper makes him seem pathetic, right? But he’s powerful? I don’t know why Orwell would chose that verb…what do you think?
  7. 7. Questioning ‘Oops! Helping Children Learn Accidently’ Hywel Roberts 8 great ways a teacher can make questions important in their classroom: 5) Teacher plans time for students' questions and for dealing with them effectively. Waiting time! What else? 6) Teacher uses wrong answers to develop understanding. Rather than telling a student ‘no’ or ‘wrong’ – use other students to draw out their thoughts. 7) Teacher prompts students. (pose, pause, bounce, pounce) 8) Teacher listens and responds positively. Try not to finish the student’s sentence or respond with ‘yes, well done’.
  8. 8. Creating challenge
  9. 9. I’m stuck… 1) ok, so do something different 2) Well imagine you were someone who was not stuck – what would they do? 3) If you could go home when you have finished this bit of work, what would you do? 4) What have you forgotten to do? 5) Think what the answer is then work backwards to where you are now. 6) Ok, do it wrong so we have something to work with ‘Whole School Progress the Lazy Way’ Jim Smith Avoid “if you get stuck, put your hand up..” Avoid setting yourself up as the expert – like they can’t do without you!
