My Year 10′s are preparing to sit AQA Unit 1 in November. They have previously sat Unit 2 and currently about half are on a grade C and half on a grade D. They have mastered the basics of the content but are struggling with the more functional aspects and questions which ask them to explain or interpret. They are at the “read and panic” stage so I wanted to devise an activity where they could work with their peers and increase their confidence whilst learning from others.
Part of our INSET today was AFL training and we were introduced to some Neuro Linguistic Programming techniques and strategies. I’ve never come across NLP before, although a few of the individual strategies have passed across my radar from as far back as my PGCE and I’m pretty sure that, like a lot of AFL strategies, some are already being used in my classroom.
As a new teacher of Further Maths A-Level I’m finding it quite frustrating that there is a lack of interactive Tarsia/ matching card activities out there (unless I’m looking in the wrong places – if so please leave a comment…) so I’m making my own.
