Presentation Transcript

  1. Bell Work: Discuss… How is pushing a sprout up Mount Snowdon with your nose like linear assessment?

  2. “Making it Stick” • Session outcomes: • Identify the challenges and opportunities associated with linear assessment. • Shareevidence based strategies that support achievement in a linear curriculum • Generate new ideas to promote student achievement in a linear curriculum.

  3. Task One: Diamond Ranking • Study the ten ideas listed on the cards. • Rank them according to their possible impact on student achievement. • Note: you must discard one card entirely. • Feedback: Which idea is most applicable to your subject area?

  4. *Strategy #1: Retrieval Practice • Retrieval practice means self testing • Retrieving knowledge AND skill from memory • *Synoptic/interleaved testing* ( mix up the content) • Why? • Use these tests to identify areas of weak mastery • Arrests forgetting • Avoids the “illusion of knowing”* • End to cramming for the tests and revising huge chunks of content • Every time you work hard to recall a memory you strengthen it.

  5. What might the quick quiz/test look like? • Q1:Material from the previous lesson • Q2: Previous lesson • Q3: Previous lesson • Q4:Material from two weeks before • Q5:Two weeks before • Q6:Material from five weeks before • Q7:Five weeks before • Q8:Material from the previous half term • Q9:Previous half term • Q10: Make a connection with what they are currently looking at with something previously studied ( link to starter activity?) • Low stakes: Make it difficult but NO league tables, no ranking, not an end of unit test or assessment.

  6. Shadow Testing: • Get Year 11 to answer Year 10 questions as starter activities and bell work.

  7. Discussion

  8. Strategy #2: Spaced retrieval practice • Studying knowledge and skill more than once but leave time between the practice • 3-4 weeks and then return to the • *Synoptic/interleaved testing* ( mix up the content) • Re-loading from long term memory to strengthen it • Better than “massed practice”

  9. TASK: Generate some strategies that would work with “Spaced Retrieval”

  10. Strategy #3:Elaboration • Elaboration is the process of finding additional layers of meaning in new material. • Concepts • Structures • Interrelationships • How does it relate to life outside of school and the ‘real world’.

  11. With the study of heat transfer you may understand conduction better if you imagine warming your hands around a hot cup of tea

  12. Bell Work: Make links between the images to show how they caused prosperity in America. (this should make one paragraph in an essay)

  13. Bell Work: How is a medieval Knight like a premier league footballer? Write your answer on your post-it-note

  14. Bell Work…. What have these three men got in common? Write your answer on your post-it-note

  15. Only Connect

  16. What would this look like in your subject?

  17. Strategy #4: Mnemonic Devices • BRAT • DAMITT • PEEC • TAP • AFOREST

  18. Share any mnemonic devices you use in your subject?

  19. Strategy #5:Deliberate Practice • Through repeated deliberate practice of exams students become skilled in the automatic state that comes with habit forming. • The Barcelona way, initiated by a great player, and believer in deliberate practice, Johan Cruyff, relies on the simplest of training drills – the ‘rondo’.

  20. How can Barcelona’s ‘Rondo’ inform our teaching in a linear curriculum?

  21. Strategy #5:Deliberate Practice • We cannot make the cognitive leap of imaginative originality unless we have a solid grounding in the core knowledge of the basics. • *Stop seeing repetition as being the enemy of creativity or higher order thinking. With exam revision repetition is our friend. • It is asimplificationof the real game like focusing in on exam technique. • Craftingand drafting the perfect exam answer singularly, rather than sitting full papers endlessly. • Mastery, and the related pleasure, that comes from drilling and deliberate practice • Source: http://martinrobborobinson.wordpress.com/ • Source: http://www.huntingenglish.com/ • Source: The Science of Successful Learning

  22. Review: Actions Consider the ideas we have discussed. What will you do as a result? Write a short pledge that includes three action points.
