  7. 7. AfL• Have I planned each part of the lesson based on prior attainment for different students and their target data?• Have I planned for the needs of different groups of students (SEN/ G&T/FSM)?• Have I got opportunities to assess student progress throughout the lesson?• Is student progress evident in books / folders?• Have students acted upon feedback?• Is my questioning planned and targetted?• Are there chances for students to self/peer assess?
  8. 8. Behaviour• Have I got a seating plan?• Have I organised groups in advance?• Have I planned time to explore how to work effectively with others?• Have I followed up sanctions / rewards from last lesson?• Is it clear what students need to do to be successful/receive praise?• Do I have opportunities to reward students during the lesson?• Have I checked appropriate Health and Safety measures have been taken?
  9. 9. Challenge• What new learning will be taking place?• Is EVERYONE challenged appropriately inc. G&T / SEN?• Have I differentiated each part of the lesson?• Do my objectives indicate an increase in difficulty, rather than a change of task?• Are my targets aspirational?• Am I challenging their preconceptions?• Have I given them opportunity to fail and bounce back?• Are the students going to be working harder than I am?
  10. 10. Deeper Learning• What transferrable skills will students be learning (critical thinking/ creative/caring/ collaborative)? How am I making these explicit?• What higher order thinking skills will students need to use? Do they understand how to show these?• Do my objectives increase in difficulty / use a taxonomy of learning?• Have I highlighted the Literacy/ numeracy skills they will need to use?• How does the content of the lesson relate to the world outside the classroom?• Have I given students to reflect on their own progress and set targets for improvements?• How does homework reinforce / extend their learning effectively?
  11. 11. Engagement• How will I capture their attention / interest?• Is there a range of VAK activities for different learning styles?• How am I going to manage the pace / transitions / timing?• How will I ensure EVERYONE is engaged?• Have I provided a choice of outcomes?• Have I planned time for students to ask their own questions?• Do my students have a ‘growth’ mindset –do they bounce back rather than give up? How will I show this?• Will my students leave with a sense of achievement?
