Proving progress is one thing that observers of your lessons will always be looking for and whilst hosting @NQTchat on Twitter this week (by @simon_haugh), one suggestion was shared that I had never come across before and I really thought was great.
I have written about this before, but I print titles for my KS3 pupils. On these slips, there are boxes for them to show their progress against the QFL.
However this clock of learning idea is something I am definitely going to try! This is roughly what it looks like:
The way this works is that pupils complete an activity in different segments of the clock, as directed by prompts on slides. For example, in the 12-3 section, pupils may complete their starter and then work round the clock until the 9-12 section is reached in which pupils complete their plenary.
This clearly demonstrates progress throughout the lesson and is justified by the work completed in the clock. I’m going to try this out next half term!
