Directed activity sheets encourage students to consider their world, how they like to learn, how they perceive themselves as learners and how they feel about school. ‘My Learning Ways’ introduces learner dispositions and key approaches to learning that are associated with effective learning habits. Students are encouraged to recognise how these dispositions present as habitual behaviours and responses and are invited to take ownership over strategies to improve their efficiencies in learning. My LID3 introduces the following learner dispositions at a general level: Attention, Memory, Learning Behaviours, Metacognition and Organisation. Attention and Learning Behaviours are explored in depth in My LID 4, Memory and Mindsets are explored in detail in My LID 5 and in preparation for secondary school, Organisation and Metacognition are explored in My LID 6.
Part 2 of My LID3 offers ideas to scaffold formative assessment practices in day-to-day teaching and to increase ‘Opportunities to Respond’ in day-to-day classroom practice.
OTR stickers have been designed for lesson start-ups, mid-points in lessons and for use at the end of lessons. OTR Assist Cards provide students with a strategy to seek support, assistance and guidance at all points throughout their learning, enriching the feedback loop from student to teacher. Reflect Cards prompt active reflection by students of their personal learning style. Checklists for peer, self and rubric assessments in a variety of curricular contexts are included. Action Cards for use with peers and scaling techniques are included.
