Give Pupils a Sense of Progress
'Meaningful learning tasks give students a clear sense of progress leading to mastery. This means that students can see themselves doing tasks they couldn't do before and understanding concepts they couldn't understand before. Work that gives students a sense of improvement as a result of effort gives teachers an opportunity to praise students for their process. That is, teachers can point out that the students' efforts were what led to the progress and improvement over time.'
Inquiry is embedded into our schemes of work. The learning journeys below are designed to demonstrate pupils' growing independence through participation in Inquiry.
The dialogue marking template below is used to give feedback to pupils following completion of an assessment task. It was created in collaboration with Andrew Blair www.inquirymaths.com
