T & L activity of the week – Human Continuum.


This strategy is useful for student-led AFL. It can be used as a connect activity, recapping prior learning, as a consolidate or as a method of formative assessment during the lesson. Human continuum is particularly useful as a preparatory task before individual written work as students are given the opportunity to discuss their learning with their peers in a structured format.  

  • Pose a statement or question.
  • Students decide whether they agree, disagree or are not sure and stand on the appropriate point on the line.
  • With other students at their point on the line, students construct reasons to support their position.
  • Each group explains their reason for their position on the line and attempts to convince those students who are not sure to move to their point on the line.
