In these troubling, uncertain times I thought it would be a good idea to share links to some ideas and resources that might prove useful in the event of school closures due to covid-19. All of these are 100% free.
You could set some quizzes for your students to practice. These quizzes are automatically marked, and the insights reveal the specific nature of misconceptions your students might have.
To set individual quizzes, a good place to start is the Collections page on Diagnostic Questions. Here are some of my favourite collections, rammed full of lovely quizzes:
Alternatively, you could set up a SOW from any of these collections so your students receive quizzes at regular intervals. Eedi is the place to do this.
If you haven’t already, you’ll need to get your classes set up on the platform. We can set this up for you by emailing email@example.com with a spreadsheet of all of your student’s first name, last name, class name on one spreadsheet. If you would like a template, please click here.
This will enable each child to complete assessments from home on their own devices.
Keep your students’ maths skills sharp with plenty of practice. Or better still, direct your students to practice the areas of weakness you have identified using Diagnostic Questions / Eedi. Here are some of my favourites:
We don’t know what will happen with this summer’s exams yet, but here are some resources specifically made for GCSE practice
If your students get stuck during their practice, then the following might help:
The thought of remote teaching via video link might well be daunting for some (it would be for me!). So, should you feel the desire (or need), then the following might be useful:
I hope that is helpful. And remember, if we can help at all with Diagnostic Questions or Eedi then please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks for reading, and stay safe.
