I was lucky enough to attend a course with Anne Goldsworthy recently and during the past few weeks I’ve been putting some of her ideas into practice.
After our practical work with our STEM ambassador and using her ‘Describing Relationships’ activity I decided to do some quick AFL.
I’d been reading about Confidence grids and developing Diagnostic Questioning at http://yorkscience.org.uk and decided they’d be the perfect way to assess quickly.
It was a very quick, efficient way of assessing where the children are in terms of understanding the work we’ve covered.
It certainly changed my groupings and plans for the next lesson.
I shall definitely use these again.
