Working With A Bottom Set Year 11: Round 2

  • ● The students’ knowledge and ability is tied to their motivation.
  • ● If they feel like they don’t know anything and it is too difficult, they will give up.
  • ● Building their knowledge carefully and deliberately will therefore hopefully help both with their ability and their motivation.

1. Model, model, then model some more

2. Logins

3. The Slow Practical

  • ● Doesn’t give them too many instructions to follow
  • ● Shows me that they are doing what I want them to do
  • ● Gets their hands and eyes away from the screen when I need their attention
  • ● Allows me to intersperse their activities with questions and reminders e.g. great, we’ve all now logged on to Carousel. Can someone tell me what the “revise” button does?..good. And the “take test” button?..great. And which should I do first?..yes, and why?…

4. Steady build up

  1. Reducing the number of flashcards for students to learn
  2. Reducing the number of questions in the quiz
  3. Using “easier” questions
  4. Increasing the number of retakes available

5. Training

6. Patter

  • ● Well done for getting that one! I know you worked really hard on it
  • ● I’m proud of you, you just got seven right in a row
  • ● Doesn’t it feel good when you get this stuff right?
  • ● Sure, it isn’t easy, but look how much you’re learning!
  • ● Have you realised you’ve just sat and done this for half an hour straight? That’s really impressive!
  • ● Come on, I know you know this one…
  • ● I know you’ve got this…here let me give you a little hint…yeah that’s it. Now I’m going to come back in two minutes and you’re going to do it again but without my hint…

7. Ensure there is enough

8. Carry through into homework

9. Follow up
