Product Description
This pack is full of resources to help you streamline your marking and assessment, and to make your students work harder in response!

If you're a teacher from the UK you'll know the OFSTED legend around response to marking. Even though it's not now a requirement, I've seen massive improvements and progress on work that has been DIRTed!

DIRT stands for Directed Improvement and Reflection Time. This is a time specifically for students to improve the work that you have marked - then and there. No more comments like, "Sorry Miss, I'll do it next time!"

This includes a time-saving key that you can edit to suit your requirements. You simply write the number of the task you want them to complete on their work, and they can reference the key in their books to find out what to do.

It also includes full instructions, including helpful links, sample marking and assessment, help sheets for capital letters and 'there, their, they're' and a PowerPoint for you to display during DIRT time.

This process has saved me masses of time while making my marking more worthwhile and getting far more progress out of the kids.

I hope you find it as useful as I do!

Keywords: Breathing Space, Assessment, Marking, Feedback, D.I.R.T, Print and Go!, ELA, High School ELA, Secondary English.
