Boosting Independent Learners

Inspired by @teachertrying







This “Passport” was given out in form and lead learners (4 in each class) had to sign for other pupils to confirm other pupils had done this element in a lesson. Pupils were given a week to get it all signed off with a prize draw at the end of the week!




A display was made and put up in a prominent corridor within the department for pupils to be sent to if they needed help or feared failure. Around the display pupils annotated the frames with ,top tips’ and ,easy mistakes to make’. All week pupils have been grabbing tips or replacing them with their own, adding their own ‘easy mistakes to make’ or just moving the contributions nearer to a relevant frame. Interactive display’s are key for preventing your content becoming just wall paper!
