So - what is your teaching resolution for the next year?
As ever when I think about my teaching, my students are at the forefront of what I am doing. I have noticed that they are not really able to write good revision notes, and despite much support and intervention, they still struggle with extended writing ... so I decided to tackle these two at once...
And so the "Learning Journal" was born
- The students have a list of the learning outcomes/syllabus detail before we start a topic and so can pre-read.
- Students are able to keep track of their own progress through the topic by ticking off what has been covered in class, also if they are off, they can see what they have missed.
- At the end of each lesson the students will fill in the rectangular box with the main points they have learnt in the lesson and possibly link to an exam question - building revision notes and exam practice along the way.]
Will it work.... who knows, but I am going to give it a try!
So, what is your #teachingresolution2014
