So last term I tried whole class teaching. There was some success I allowed students to choose if they wanted to see me for extra tutoring at the end of a modeled session. Students who came to the extra sessions made significant progress.
So where to from here. After reflection in our team meeting we have decided that the curriculum is too big to give quality teaching without rushing. So we have broken down the strands over a two year cycle. I am also teaching whole class. I have broken the assessment down to analysis where students are at. I have set up an extension programme for 6 students and moved them onto a different aspect of measurement that we are not teaching this year. I am calling down my target students to make sure they make greater progress.
