Structured Groups

Description

A lesson in collaboration demonstrates the use of peer assessment, which can be applied to any keystage.

Secondary pupils at the President Kennedy School in Coventry, work in mixed ability groups to create a marketing campaign to promote tourism in London.

Students are assigned roles within the group and then choose a target audience such as families or pensioners.

It's up to them to work together and use their research and creative skills to produce a presentation for the rest of the class to judge.

The teacher has little influence as the others assess the style and content of each presentation.

Later, Philippa Cordingley, director of the Centre for the Use of Research and Evidence in Education explains the use of this strategy supported by the research in this video .
