5 Bits of Advice About: Planning

  1. Plan backwards – what do you want students to be able to do, know or show by the end of the lesson? Then work out how to get there (where before how).
  2. Think about how you can hook them from the moment they walk into the classroom (a piece of music, an image, a challenging question, you in fancy dress…).
  3. Get students to show you what they already know or can do. Pay attention at this point so you know who needs more support or more challenge.
  4. Model. This might be through the use of an exemplar or you talking through HOW to approach a question.
  5. Let students get on with it and offer a range of support to allow ALL students to achieve.
