Time to Pause…

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:

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.

Why not try a ‘pause’ lesson and let us know how you get on via the comments box below?
