- Home and expert groups – the experts work together on research/ a set task, before sharing what they have learnt with the expert groups.
- When they get stuck – use the 5Bs – Brain, Book, Board, Buddy, Boss
- Write their own exam questions and mark schemes
- Guess what’s on the exam specification – can students guess the main topics in a section of the exam specification?
- Encourage students to predict how they have done in tests, reflecting on their strengths and weaknesses.
- Encourage students to set short, medium and long term learning goals, asking them to reflect on their progress and make a plan to meet these goals.
- Encourage self and peer editing before handing work in to be marked.
- Plan, do, reflect and review
- Students are set a range of tasks to complete over a period of lessons. Once they have completed a task, they tick their name – they then become experts who are available to help others on that task.
- Groups are giving different topics to work on and then present.
- Big sheet of paper – in groups, students answer a question (different one each sheet), move to the next sheet and improve the answer from the previous group
