2 Why? Curriculum planning + material design Implementation INSIDE the classroom (peer lesson observation -> reflection -> further adaptation) Assessment for learning through observation an/or analyzing students’ work + follow-up Improvement

3 When? Too late? Too frequent? How to strike a balance? Once a year? Every day? Once a term?

4 How? Primary concern: Looking for patterns in students’ work and understanding why the students make mistakes (Misconception? Laziness? Carelessness? Not taught before? Lack of input? Infrequent practice / recycling? …) NO prescribed mode Both? Quantitative analysis? Qualitative analysis? Selected parts only? All parts?

5 What NEXT?  Re-teaching / re-cycling in the next module  Careful scaffolding  Change in teaching strategies  Designing worksheets etc. Is it handy?Is it manageable?What should be the focus? What is the attainment target? Be specific, explicit and clear What is the priority? What can be the effect on new learning?
