By following this cycle of ongoing reflective practice you will be making the link between theory and practice thus learning from your experience of applying new techniques. Here are the steps:

  • Part 1: Plan an interactive activity such as brainstorming
  • Part 2: Teach using the activity, bearing in mind the learning objective
  • Part 3: Reflect on how the activity went, first on your own and then with a colleague and perhaps a wider group

Revise plan and repeat cycle.

For reflecting on an activity, it is useful to have questions to guide the reflection. For example, the following questions could be used to guide reflection:

  • What did the children get out of the activity? How can you tell?
  • How did you (as the teacher) find out what the children learnt / thought about the activities / got out of them?
  • What did you (as the teacher) get out of it?
  • Did you find it difficult?
  • What would you do differently next time?
  • Did the activity allow students to meet the learning objective that it was designed to address?
