Important Information – the first slide of each lesson in this unit bundle starts with a quick quiz/test based on the previous lesson/s learning. Your pupils should answer the questions in a different colored pen in their books. The second slide gives the answers and your pupils should self-assess or peer mark. This then gives you – the teacher – formative assessment on your pupils progress – recorded in their books. FOR EVERY LESSON. Which is fantastic evidence for book checks. Also I ask my pupils to take photographs with their phones of each lesson and homework is to revise that lesson. Not only do you as a teacher tick so many boxes but most importantly your pupil’s progression in this subject improves.
