My students definitely found it easier in the writing test. Typing and basic formatting is much more efficient for them.

Looking at our preliminary online NAPLAN results. The test certainly did better at differentiating for student needs. The test floor and ceiling has certainly become significantly wider if students need it.

Nothing wrong with students learning specific disciplines. It’s a great way to have students learn depth & breadth.

Started to use whole class feedback this week. My word, it’s awesome. 20 minutes to mark 30 books, then instant valuable and purposeful feedback given to the class the next day. Not a word (only a highlighted objective) written in any books, yet the feedback was so much better!

A1 We are reading Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar in Year 7. It was perfect timing to highlight that history often repeats itself. Thankfully this spill didn’t include 23 stab wounds.

When people work in groups, average performance increases, but the quality of the best solution tends to decrease. Making collaboration intermittent seems to reduce the decline in the quality of the best solution produced by members of the group:

Can a teacher be a sage on the stage and at times, guide on the side and still be considered contemporary?

Surely none of those things can be considered new or contemporary though? Teachers have been doing those things for decades. Blooms Taxonomy has been around since the 50’s
