DAVID DIDAU Do you find repeated mistakes? Is most of it ignored? Do you use empty phrases? Is it an albatross around your neck?!
HOW CAN YOU MAKE YOUR MARKING PURPOSEFUL? Dialogue: instead of making comments, ask questions. Find faults and fix: focus on presentation and give students time to proof-read. If it’s sloppy or careless, they do it again. Marking is planning: your marking should create your lesson activities. Marking is differentiation: specific challenges and tasks to suit that child’s ability. Time savers: create a code or only focus on a particular AO. Students could even highlight particular bits they want you to look at.
