  • what gets focused on, flourishes students who are active in their learning, motivated to learn, manage the amount of new information they get at any one time, practise, seek descriptive feedback, test their learning, reflect on their learning, learn better than those who experience passive learning situations
  • Perspectives that teachers can hold of a student. what gets focussed on flourishes controlling p32 - example caring - p36 activity - p36 - reading lf - student’s role is only to learn. the student focuses on what happens now that will best help me learn. p30 - handout CHECKLIST - What best happens in your class p41 - 10 min
  • The learner must be active in every respect of the learning process learning is not something that is done to us

  • success criteria - process sc - how to make or do something product sc - qualities of the product
  • the most powerful way of describing what is to be learnt words are needed to describe quality, exemplars are needed to demonstrate quality
  • team talk

    11. 11. exemplars•relevant to the Learning Intention•exemplify the intended learning•exemplify the next steps of learning•allow in depth discussion between teacher and student•lead to co-construction of Success Criteria
    12. 12. students should beable to tell anyone• their global and specific learning intentions what quality work looks like and the criteria for success• how they can use exemplars to help them know what they are aiming for• why what they are learning is relevant and important• their individual learning goals
    13. 13. Team Talk what are theskills teachersneed to be able to assess students?
    14. 14. • define clear learning goals use a variety of assessment methods• analyse data (both quantitative and qualitative)• make instructional modifications to help students improve involve students in assessment process (self, peer) and communicate results• engineer effective assessment that boosts student motivation to learn• be expert in giving appropriate feedback/feedforward• have superior content knowledge
    15. 15. teachers need to knowthat they havecurriculum the value of student selfunderstanding and and peer assessmentconfidence in makinga informal assessment how to keep an eye on it allhow to observe how to involve students inlearning a collaborative assessmentthat you can you the big picturecolleagues to help youwith your assessment -PLC
