T & L activity of the week – Students deliver a connect activity

The ultimate goal of independent learning is that students take ownership of their own learning and therefore shape the lesson. This can be achieved through students planning and delivering a connect activity that recaps prior learning.

  • For homework, ask students to plan an activity that the class can complete at the start of next lesson that recaps what they learnt in that lesson;
  • This can be scaffolded by discussing as a class what type of activities teachers often set at the start of the lesson;
  • A list of activities could be given to students and they can rank them according to how effectively they help them learn and how appropriate they are to the lesson topic;
  • In the next lesson, either choose one activity to do or have groups of students completing their own tasks that they completed for homework.
