Lesson materials (if necessary)
Differentiation – how do you plan to give more support? How do you plan to challenge the more able learners? Assessment – how are you planning to check learners’ learning? Health and safety check
Less able students – greater support by means of visuals or writing difficult words on the blackboard
More able students – independent work on definite tasks with little/no support
– check sts’ understanding of classroom instructions
– check sts’ home task
– check sts’ pronunciation of new words
– monitor sts’ progress during while- and post- reading tasks
– Use water based markers
– Work with the SMART board not more than 10 minutes. Make short breaks.
– Ensure proper ventilation
– Monitor classroom space when sts start moving around
– Check sockets’ safety
