5 Bits of Advice About: Modelling

  1. If you want children to do something in their work or use a certain device or strategy, model it clearly.
  2. Act like they should by sounding out, going to get dictionary etc. You are modelling independence.
  3. Model the thought processes out loud. Talk in the way you would like them to think and act during a task.
  4. Unpick a really good example and discuss what makes it so good. This is modelling analysis and will help them internalise good strategies.
  5. Please, please model making mistakes and how to deal with this. Model that it is part of learning if you want them to treat it normally themselves.
