What is your advice about? Modelling Paragraphs

  1. Ensure students engage with models, as opposed to just reading them. Encourage students to annotate them.
  2. Don’t always give students a success criteria to annotate from. Allow them to use their annotations to create a success criteria.
  3. Give students a model that is not exactly the same task as the one that you want them to complete.
  4. Use multiple models to highlight specific skills, showing students good models, but also perhaps a bad ones. This further highlights what ‘good’ looks like.
  5. Challenge students to offer a WWW (what went well) and EBI (even better if) on models to unpick then further.
