Term three has been another very busy productive period for the English department at the Kewdale campus.
One of the ways that we love to use in getting the students to be very active in their learning is the use of ‘poster reviews’ or ‘annotation of topics and concepts taught’ in our classrooms.
The poster work that we have shared represents the work of our year 7, 9 and year 11 ATAR students.
By getting students to work in small groups and review the concepts that have been taught over a period of time is a fun an exciting way of knowing whether or not the students have retained the content and skills shared in the classroom.
This particular method of teaching encourages collaboration between students, leadership and the reinforcement of curriculum content in a non-threatening way that all students enjoy participating in. We use this strategy from year 7 -12. Most importantly our students are having fun while learning.
