The Mathematics Talk Show Oral Language Strategy

The Mathematics Talk Show is a fun and engaging oral language language strategy for Mathematics. It requires a minimum of two students (Interviewer & Subject) who work out a mathematical problem and answer a series of question. The Mathematics Talk Show allows students to develop their oral language skills by getting them to think out loud about problem solving and discuss their thinking with their peers in a fun and social way.                                                                            Miss Tiffany Perry

Student Self Assessment Strategies

Self assessment allows students to evaluate their progress on a task or concept without having to relying on teacher judgment. Self assessment and reflection strategies in the classroom create responsible learners who are in control of their learning. Through the use of the ‘Three Thumbs’, the ‘Four Levels Posters’ and the ‘What Stuck With You Poster’ students are able to show their level of understanding and reflect on their learning.
