Using thinking organisers in the classroom

Andrea discusses the upcoming three examples of teachers using different approaches to scaffold the learning.

Andrea discusses the range of approaches we will see our teachers using in the following steps to scaffold the learning.

  • Step 4.4 shows some of our primary teachers using a range of thinking organisers
  • Step 4.5 shows some of our secondary teachers using a range of thinking organisers
  • Step 4.6 shows some of our primary and secondary teachers using help desks


Whilst watching the next three videos we would like you to think about how you might successfully use approaches similar to those taken so you may find it useful to make notes as you progress through them. Afterwards, we will ask you to share your thoughts by contributing a short summary of your thinking to the discussion on Step 4.7 and to respond to at least one of the summaries contributed by other learners.
Points we suggest you focus on are:
  • Subject
  • Topic
  • The practicalities of managing the ideas
  • Any questions you may have about the approach
