Advice on Unit Planning (2)

This page and the previous one describe some of the features of effective unit plans.

Activities and resources
How these are sequenced and organised to support your chosen teaching and learning approaches.
For example, you could use:
  • visualisations as a starter activity for several lessons
  • plenary discussion to give learners an opportunity to reflect on how they build a mathematical argument using prior knowledge.

Day-to-day assessment strategies that best suit the unit structure, perhaps identifying opportunities to check and probe pupils’ understanding as their learning emerges.
For example:
  • check pupils’ use of correct geometrical language and symbols when presenting an argument
  • listen carefully to selected pupils’ arguments as they feed back to peers.
