At the Specialist Leader in Education training at Kings Oak Academy last week, we discussed how teachers could prove that pupils were making progress in any 15 minute phase of the lesson.
By demonstrating progress, it allows lesson observers (Ofsted, slt, peers etc) to give a more accurate assessment of the lesson.
One of the nutrients in learning nutrition (vitamins) focuses on developing a culture of celebrating progress and peer support. If pupils are encouraged to develop the skills to do this effectively and teachers provide sufficient opportunites for peer lead mini plenaries to occur, then this could provide the opportunity to demonstrate progress. This would also help learners to reflect and engage more with their own learning.
