  1. I stumbled upon your blog through David Didau – excellent work.
    Transparency, relevance, teaching-learning presented as a process. (Yes, I read other entries, too – couldn’t stop).

    • Very kind of you to leave such a positive comment I really appreciate the feedback xx Lots more on the way xx

      • Its such as you learn my thoughts! You seem to know so much aeimoxpratply this, such as you wrote the e book in it or something. I feel that you just could do with a few % to drive the message home a little bit, however other than that, this is fantastic blog. A fantastic read. I’ll certainly be back.

  2. I’m really glad I saw the #pedagoofriday tweet from @BarkerJBarker on your post. I’ve been trying to come up with strategies for doing this kind of thing, but never really found anything that works terribly well in practice.

    As a physics teacher I’d probably need to come up with an alternative to your fishes, but it’s definitely something I’ll try soon.

    Thanks for sharing!

    • Thank you x this is my favourite technique because I get to show off my fish pics drawn in Art lesson at scho :) Been looking for a use for them for 13 years x

  3. Hoping to put your peer-assessment strategies in place tomorrow, Lisa! Thanks for the idea! Is it okay for me to use your fish images please?!

  4. Loved this blog. I ran a Year 7 super learning day on critique recently where we were “all about the fish” ~ friendly, informative, specific & honest. Has made real impact on the quality of peer feedback provided by students.
    Keep up the great work!

  5. I sent your blog ideas to staff as part of our Learning Thought mag [and your SOLO stuff!] It inspired an NQT to produce a lovely peer assessment task for year 7-can send if you would like to see what you have inspired! Many thanks
