Every teacher wants to see their students fully engaged, highly motivated, taking responsibility for their own learning, and experiencing greater success as a result.
Robyn Adams and Toni Glasson share their research and classroom experience, exploring Assessment for Learning strategies:
- sharing learning intentions and success criteria with the class
- peer feedback
- effective teacher feedback
- strategic questioning
- student reflection, self-motivation and self-assessment.
When implemented consistently, these strategies lead to significant improvement in student achievement.
Step by Step: Improving student achievement in the classroom demonstrates how these strategies can be implemented in the context of a teaching and learning unit.
With the unit, Bushrangers: The gold rush era, teachers can build on lesson plans, select activities that complement the teaching and learning already occurring, and see evidence of the strategies in action. Valuable insight and teaching tips directly linked to classroom experience accompany each lesson plan.
Packed with activities, worksheets and student work samples, Step by Step is your opportunity to follow in the steps of practising classroom teachers using Assessment for Learning strategies to effect greater student achievement.
