Learning Progression Maps – “Says What It Does On The Tin”
A simple but effective way of condensing paper, booklets or worksheets into a simple map of how the lesson will progress on one page. The steps can be carefully scaffolded and the print out can be A3 for more effective use of space.
This is just a simple example of one of the maps I use in BTEC Sport, however they have been successful in GCSE and A Level Theory. Learning all of the tips and tricks you find on twitter/school CPD, the Progression Map can be developed even further to incorporate some T&L Nuts and Bolts from areas such as:
- Mini Plenary Ideas/Progression Checks (e.g. Roll A starter from Tom Brush @tombrush1982)
- Solo Taxonomy by Pam Hook @arti_choke – give it an improved AFL structure
- Agility Toolkit T&L Tasks/Ideas by @ASTSupportAAli
- QR Codes to create an interactive Progression Map @phys_educator
Anyway, its been very useful for me but like anything in teaching it can always be developed, tweaked and shared to improve its quality, application and ultimate impact on student progress/achievement.
I hope it gives some inspiration and I look forward to hearing how you have/or how it could be developed/tweaked/amended!
