Exploring Thinking Processes

Description

A secondary teacher shows how she reveals the thinking processes behind students' answers in a Year 7 maths class, using a technique which can be used across Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4 as part of Assessing Pupils' Progress (APP).

Teacher Phillipa Rouet invites answers from every pupil in her Year 7 maths class at Merchants Academy, Bristol, taking care not to indicate whether they are right or wrong.

She then asks them how they arrive at their answer and through their explanations, students reveal their thinking processes and realise how to correct their own mistakes.

The technique is used across all ages in the school from Years 7 to 13.
