Additional information

Differentiation – how do you plan to give more support? How do you plan to challenge the more able learners?

allow less confident learners to give different levels of response (differentiation by outcome); or let some learners ask and answer a fewer number of questions (differentiation by task).  Monitor and take notes for future planning.

Assessment – how are you planning to check learners’ learning?

Health and safety check
ICT links

Teacher can provide different levels of questions: Who? Where? When? (lower –order thinking skill) What? Why (higher-order thinking skill). Use words from script. Grouping students should allow students of mixed ability to work together and support one another. .

 

The teacher and co-teacher should circulate the room constantly offering support to weaker students and encouraging stronger students to write more complex, abstract thoughts.

Higher students can be encouraged to use more difficult writing structures, vocabulary etc. Weaker students can be supported by the teacher when writing, and the complexity of the tasks could be reduced or adapted.

Circulate about the room helping students with vocabulary and expressions. Monitor learners to check they can pick up main points from the text when answering the questions.

 

Following each pair or individual activity, ask questions that check for comprehension and understanding.

Lesson will delivered in accordance with health and safety standards.
