Stretch and Challenge – What’s my place in the class?
A thought about knowing your students each and every lesson…
Imagine changing your seating plan each and every lesson. Imagine moving students and placing them on tables based on their ability during the lesson not on their last piece of homework or test.
Unreasonable isn’t it.
However, we must realise that a student’s position in the class will change every lesson. Higher ability students may struggle and struggling students may excel.
Teachers need to be in a position to support and encourage, praise and reward as appropriate.
