We’ve been doing a module on travel. Last week, students wrote about their most memorable trip. Here’s the latest (sunny) display. I need to mount this on some nice coloured card and frame it a bit better, but I was really impressed by the students’ work!
Actually, it’s not the displays that I was most impressed with. I’ve been working on some of the techniques for highlighting success criteria that I’ve mentioned in previous posts. I’ve also taken on board some of Kirsten Anne’s ideas from last month’s post on writing codes.
One of the displays includes a key which explains various content / language points students had to use in their writing:
Students used the symbols to highlight where they used each language point in their writing:
(note: I still need to correct a few things!)
I know, this isn’t exactly rocket science. I’ve seen Kirsten Anne marking books for her primary classes and these techniques are pretty standard. Still, it’s a great way for learners to show they understand the target language and can use it effectively. It makes my marking a lot easier too!

What creative displays! It’s great to see how you’re putting into action things that you’ve learnt from your colleagues and the community. You said that some of these things are pretty standard – I’m not so sure they are, so thanks for sharing 🙂
