Find me…

I’m snowed under at the moment with Key Stage 4 mocks and coursework, but want to continue to provide some extended learning for students, I agree that much homework is a burden for both students and teacher, but it has a role in developing the resilience and independence of the learner.

In my continuing role of promoting radical traditionalism I develop this find me task. The idea, simple really, student research the answers to the questions.

We can a good discussion about this

  • Most students would conduct an internet search, this lead us to discuss the terms used for searches and why certain websites appeared first.
  • Why it was important to use more than one search.
  • How such knowledge is contested, i.e. longest river in the World.

My aim is to self-mark in lesson, I don’t give detentions for not completing homework, what message does this send? There should be positive feedback via progress checks and the reward system.
