Literacy For Learning - Theory Ideas

Literacy Question Matrix

Inspiration taken from the Twitter education community for this post on a Question starter and connective words matrix in the form of a worksheet/display. See below how they can be developed into excellent literacy for learning tools...

Practical Setting

My version of the Question Matrix I created for Trampoline with help of the department on the key words etc! Really helpful for getting G&T to formulate a question for the plenary based on a key word and a colleague has had great success with this so far!

Scrabble Challenge

Using scrabble as a starter or main activity to create words associated with a topic but also encouraging numeracy skills when counting the value of the word. All credit goes to the @pegeeks community for this post and tweeters in particular @dwoodward11, @tombrush1982

FeedForward Feedback - Literacy A4L

How To Use FeedForward Feedback - Marking Tool

5 Simple Steps To FeedForward Referring To Image Above:

Step 1 - Set a piece of written work (we set 10/20 mark question for PE in Mock Exams)

Step 2 - Teacher marks it, providing written comments, highlighted errors etc. looking for the themes within the matrix above (e.g. key terminology, written communication, too vague, subject knowledge etc.)

Step 3 - Hand the student back their marked work and one of the FeedForward matrix sheets above. The student then proof reads their marked work, looking for comments/feedback related to the matrix, and highlights or colours in the matrix boxes which are relevant or suggest need improvement.

Step 4 - The student prioritises a matrix box (e.g. Literacy - spelling/punctuation) which has been highlighted as a common mistake or a box which has had a significant impact upon their mark, and uses this as a target to improve upon when they next come to do a mock exam or written piece.

Step 5 - Taking this forward, the student can act upon feedback and choose to mindmap, repeat question or highlight mark scheme. One of which will be most relevant to acting upon the feedback from the matrix boxes. This step can be a multitude of tasks whereby the teacher can also decide upon on a task on how best to address the common mistakes the student made.

Exam Question Papers - Modified For Literacy Focus

PE4Learning - Literacy Within Exams

Simple Steps To Literacy4Learning Referring To Image Above...

Step 1 - Breaking the question down into its simplest parts is a good exam technique tool. The COMMAND word is Identify [two types specifically], the SUBJECT/TOPIC is Strength, and the SUBJECT/FOCUS is the method of measuring strength.

Step 2 - Key Terminology which looks at jotting down all of the syllabus specific key words and their spellings to be used within the answer.

Step 3 - Structure looks at bullet pointing a brief overview of how the answer might look/pan out with a focus on how many marks its worth and using PEE (Point, Explain, Example) or IDEA/IDEC (Identify, Describe, Explain/Example, Analyze or Conclude).

Then using the adapted Mark Scheme below to mark and assess knowledge and understanding, spelling, structure of answer etc. Student's usually highlight what was missed in the answer to draw attention to areas of development for future revision.

Credits and Sharing

Inspiration for this E-Flyer has come from various innovators on the @Twitter network and it is not the PE4Learning way to pass it off as my own. I simply intend to share how I am using these wonderful ideas and give all credit to those who dreamt them up!
