This simple idea allows progress to be clearly demonstrated within a lesson and within books. In this example students were given a picture at the start of the lesson and asked to write down what problems they would have if they lived there.
The remainder of the lesson took place, where students looked at the impacts of living along the Holderness Coast. They were then asked to repeat the task they did at the start. As you can see in the example below the student clearly showed progress throughout the lesson. The green arrow in the margin is where I want students to write until or past- it clearly demonstrates the expectation required.
A really simple idea which can be adapted to suit lots of needs and subjects!
