The images below show how Gareth has been using Learning Journeys with his classes, alongside the GCSE questions activity which Zebedee shared in her workshop.
Student also have a learning journey stuck in their books that they can highlight as we progress through lessons, and at the end of the unit they return to the GCSE questions and make any changes/additions. It is still a learning curve for me and I'm sure I could make it even more effective but I have found them really valuable.
I have particularly noticed with my Year 10 class the effects of 'mixed attainment teaching approaches' at both ends of the class - I am seeing the 'less able' students flourishing and the 'more able' students making even more progress. We currently set our students and I will be leading the transition to mixed attainment in Year 7 from September."
Gareth is hoping to visit a schools that is currently teaching mixed attainment classes. If you are able to welcome a visit from Gareth please contact him via twitter @tarletonmaths
