Reviewing previous learning
- checking if learners have understood previous subject concepts or not
- helping clarify misunderstandings about previous subject concepts
- developing learners’ skills of recall and understanding (lower-order thinking skills)
- deciding if we need to revisit all or part of the subject concept again
- deciding if learners need additional language support so they can talk about what was previously learned
- giving learners an opportunity to reflect on what they have learned before moving on to a new topic
- consolidating a subject concept as part of the learning cycle.
