strategies for borderline students
This staff activity gives ideas on how to intervene to help students who are on the borderline of getting a 3 or 4 in a subject(s) within the Diploma Programme.
The aims of the activity are:
- To identify borderline students in the Diploma as a whole and then in our own subjects.
- To find students who face similar issues with assessments.
- To know what is meant by intervention and when it should take place
- To know what form successful written and oral feedback should take and how it works as an intervention strategy.
- To know how to utilise target setting to improve student performance.
The activity includes four tasks for teachers to undertake in groups.
This activity has been adapted into my school`s context and into the Diploma Programme from one based on the UK National Curriculum, created by Jacqui1974 on the TES resources website.
