Assessment for learning is probably one of my biggest passions in teaching.
Giving the children ownership of what they are doing and why they are doing it is of upmost importance in helping them reach their full potential.
Some time ago I worked with the BBC to show teachers how I use assessment for learning strategies in my classroom.
I still use these methods in school as well as a few others that I’ve developed. Although I do cringe when I see this, staff that I have worked with find it a useful starting point. It shows them the practicalities of doing it and gives them a few ideas of how to embed it in their practice.
