Encouraging Independent Learning

So, I’ve been thinking about this for a while. Students have so many stickers in their books, RAG123, connectives, my marking codes…. Then their book finishes and they have none of this stuff in front of them or it gets torn, lost etc. So I created a literacy peer/self assessing key chain.  

Kids love it! Last week my yr8s were using it to help them write a paragraph in class. Some of them asked if they could take my key chains home to help them do their homework. 

Staff love it! At the Marking Fayre I organised for a twilight CPD session, it was very popular particularly with the more practical subject areas. 

It’s still early days of using it but so far a big success. 

Here’s my prototype:

Here it is with a carabiner!
