Quick Teaching Tool – Talk It, Cover It, Improve It, Apply It, Write It.
HOW TO USE IT?
A – Create a list of essential key topics, terminology or key definitions.
B – Create a list of trigger words to structure discussion, but put them in random order so the students need to think a little harder before discussing a key definition. ‘Talk It’ = E.g. Newton’s Law 1 – A BODY will remain at REST or UNIFORM VELOCITY unless acted upon by an EXTERNAL FORCE.
C – Follow the instruction in the title – ‘Cover it‘ up and recall the definition from memory. ‘Improve it‘ by giving or getting some feedback on your attempt from a partner or teacher. ‘Apply it‘ encourages the student to give an appropriate practical example to the definition if there is one to give. Finally, ‘Write it‘ in a booklet, note paper, or integrate this part with the PE4Learning Question Assessment Sheet.
