A common language to discuss how to make progress and add detail …
I have been looking at this for a while, especially as the UK moves towards a period without a standard national scheme to identify progress. In my geography lessons, in between levelled assessment pieces I use solo stages to explain how to add more depth in extended writing pieces especially.
Pupils quote mantras from English lessons which I have no issue with until I find myself talking with classes where 4 different English teachers use 4 separate naming strategies and my role in a cross curricular literacy policy becomes much harder.
Why not a common language across all subjects where extended writing is used? My proposal would be to use solo stages, not surprisingly but I thought I’d ask the globalsolo network their views.
In 24 hours the following have favourited, RT’d or answered – a great example of teacher collaboration across subject and international boundaries. The discussion continues:
