A way of introducing new learning in 3 simple phases whilst also assessing pupil learning diagnostically (using mini whiteboards) prior to commencing the independent task to deepen understanding.
- Stage 1 – Watch me: Teacher models the new learning by demonstrating the process whilst facilitating pupil involvement.
- Stage 2 – Help me: Teacher models again the learning but deliberately draws out common misconceptions for pupils to all join in and correct.
- Stage 3 – Show me: Pupils given time to demonstrate their understanding on mini whiteboards. Question has variation built in and all pupils complete question which is checked on mini whiteboards before independent task commences.
