Something I know I do well as a teacher is to provide a strong context for learning. There are thoughtful provocations to kids engaged and thinking however my big problem is follow through.
I’m wondering how do I sustain meaningful and personalised learning throughout the Unit of Inquiry?
During the provocation I collected a lot of data. I videoed the kids and edited that down into a movie. I also had the children record their own reflection of the day.
From there I moved into spreadsheet mode.Through giving group and individual feedback I identifiedL
Whole class teaching points – placement, planning, connecting with buyers
Groups – developing products, teamwork, developing knowledge of unique products and services
Individuals – bouncing back from failure, specific communication needs (listening, negotiating)
Over the course of this unit there will be opportunities for me to:
- Plan mini-provocations to help children develop attitudes and skills, connect with experts, field trips
- Group work – at different stages of company formation
- Individual conferences around specific issues
