Published in: Education
  • This is a great guide! It is well written and easy to follow. It tells you what you should do on the very first day of revision right up until the day before the exam. I recommend anyone that's taking their GCSE maths to get their hands on this valuable guide! It showed me exactly where I was going wrong. I was one of those students who was making this 'silly mistake' repeatedly, and not knowing that I was making it. No wonder I failed my GCSE maths first time... Once I addressed this mistake, I scored 90% in my GCSE maths exam... ▲▲▲ http://ishbv.com/jeevan91/pdf

  1. 1. Focus Group Feedback @RHVSTL #rvhstm RVHS TeachMeet 10 February 2015
  2. 2. Differentiation!!!!! If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Henry David Thoreau
  3. 3. Key ideas… differentiation • …is the process of identifying, with each learner, the most effective strategies for reaching agreed targets” • “Differentiation should be seen as integral to learning, not an add-on for when things do not go as well as planned.” • “ It is not about troubleshooting but is a concept which has to be seen in an inclusive way, applying to everyone”
  4. 4. Differentiation can be aimed at: • The whole class (setting). • Groups within the class. • Individuals.
  5. 5. What are the categories of differentiation? • By task (tasks graded in difficulty) • By outcome (open-ended tasks, allowing pupil response at different levels) • By support (perhaps via an LSA) • By resources (reading comprehension at differing levels of complexity) • By interest (choice of title for writing) • By variety (media/ICT/games/role play) • By progressive questioning (Planned levels of questioning) • By grouping (Different grouping based on prior attainment, learning style)
  6. 6. • Do you know the SEN, LAC, PP, G&T, RA, Prior Attainment of the students you teach? It is all about the DATA • Are they identified on SIMS as having a special need? • Seating plan- where should they sit? Do they have a physical/ sensory need? Can they see the board? • At the beginning of the year have 2 seating plans, to target different needs within the classroom for the year. Plan learning partners from data. • Know your Blooms Taxonomy. Planning for differentiation

  11. 11. Technology and Home Learning Google Forms and Self Marking Homework Create a Google Form by going on your Drive and click ‘Create’ and ‘Form’ Create the questions on your form and a selection of answers Then ‘Share’ the Google Form with yourself and it will email it to you for you to fill out a copy first
  12. 12. Pros: • Self Marking • Instant results • Easy to view and show students Cons: • Time consuming • Not all students know their Google Login/Passwords • Teacher Dashboard/Classlist email not updated Technology and Home Learning Click ‘Add On’ at the top and search for Flubaroo and install it as an add on This will install immediately and is the program which marks the quiz responses for you Then ‘Share’ the quiz with your class by typing in their email address or classlist code
  13. 13. Websites and Blogs Technology and Home Learning
  14. 14. In science we have designed a blog for the KS3 students where we can give out information about school trips, homework tasks and reminders for clubs etc… We have also created a blog designed especially for year 11 revision. We can post revision topics in advance and when/where revision will take place. A blog for year 10 will be our next project!
  15. 15. • Pupils have received information about the website and blog. Posters on display (class room, teaching area and around school). • Home learning material made available (pdf documents used). If paper copies are lost there is no excuse for work not completed due to missing sheets. • Sticker produced for their planner as a reminder of website. • Digital leaders supported with the designing and input of files. Teacher updates files regularly. • Focus group: GCSE (Year 10), very low ability group as a whole. • Moving forward: • Maybe pupils can post some of their own examples on the site (of completed tasks)/ examples available of different grades to view. • Recipes/dishes can be posted by pupils and comments can be given by other members of the group. • Setting challenges for each other in the group and identification of skills achieved. • Support needed: • Would be useful if admin time could be available to input all resources. Websites and Blogs Technology and Home Learning
  16. 16. Technology and Home Learning Show My Homework • We looked at a case study • Tried the process of setting h/w, lots of steps • Spoke to a pupil from case study school about it • Discussed with colleagues and discounted due to mainly due to price (£6400 for 2 years), but also complexity of setting h/w, but this would become easier with familiarity. • Google classroom/ Doddle and Google Calendar can all do what Show My Homework does.
  17. 17. Students know how to improve • Marking policy • Written feedback through closing the gap • Oral feedback • Green pen • Pair work • Peer assessment • Mini plenaries • Mini whiteboards • 2 stars and a wish • MFL forms
