Happy New Year from the AP Team!
A thought provoking post from the excellent Class Teaching blog, in which a teacher explores the potential value of a ‘pause’ lesson. The full link is below, but to set this in context here is a quote from the start of the article:
The value of pausing | Class Teaching
What is a ‘Pause’ lesson?
The aim of a ‘Pause’ lesson is to ensure that students are confident with the core knowledge of a unit of work, before moving onto new concepts which require the application of that knowledge.
Essentially there are three aims of a ‘Pause’ lesson; to embed, to consolidate and to practice. Importantly, no new content or skills are delivered in this lesson, with the whole focus on previously taught content and skills.
