What is your advice about? Effective use of seating plans

  1. Create a simple seating plan (name and M/F) that is easy to glance at (large font) so you can quickly read students’ names in the flow of a lesson.
  2. Don’t be afraid to refer to your seating plan throughout a lesson to recall student names. You’ll remember them eventually, but you won’t if you don’t use names at all.
  3. If you print off a copy of your seating plan (or display it in an app on your tablet) you can scribble notes on it for you to act on later – e.g. ‘No HW’).
  4. If you are leaving cover work, print off a copy of your seating plan. The cover teacher will thank you endlessly.
  5. Add useful info such as lesson times and your SLT duty rota etc to the seating plan so you can refer to that info quickly in a lesson.
