This term, my RISE partner has been changed to the lovely Bridget O'Shannessy. I filmed a writing lesson where I was revising the GRASPS task for our Year 1 end of term writing assessment, as well as introducing the success criteria from rubric. My challenge for this RISE reflection was - How to introduce or revise the writing rubric in a more time efficient way, so as to not lose attention halfway through!
After filming, I immediately was able to self-reflect on my own teaching and thought, "Oh man, why didn't I refer to the Bump It Up wall?"... And the answer was, I simply forgot. The Bump It Up wall is new to my classroom as it was only introduced in Week 7. We have used it in writing lessons but I did not use it when introducing the writing success criteria. WHY NOT?! Silly Miss Renneberg. This would have been a far more time efficient, engaging and relevant method of revising the expectations for writing.
My goals will be:
- To more effectively use the Bump It Up wall throughout the term so that students are familiar with the success criteria of a writing task, in order to minimise the instruction time.
- To quickly reference what is already consolidated in order to focus on the new or more challenging concepts.
