Topic review

test Reviewing learning should be a continuing and regular process. At the end of teaching a topic, teachers need to ensure that students have an understanding of the structure of what they have learned. If they do, then material is likely to go into permanent memory (Petty, 2006). This form assists that process by asking students to summarise the key points of a topic.

Well-structured note making at the end of a topic has positive effects on learning according to Marzano et al. (2001). These notes are also useful when it comes to revision.

At the end of a topic students fill in the form to summarise the key learning points. This might be supported through a group or class discussion. There is an opportunity for teachers to add formative assessment comments.

Topic review: Teachers' notes
Rationale Reviewing learning should be a continuing and regular process. At the end of
teaching a topic, teachers need to ensure that students have an understanding of
the structure of what they have learned. If they do, then material is likely to go
into permanent memory (Petty, 2006). This form assists that process by asking
students to summarise the key points of a topic.
Well-structured note making at the end of a topic has positive effects on learning
according to Marzano et al. (2001). These notes are also useful when it comes to
revision.
How to use At the end of a topic students fill in the form to summarise the key learning
points. This might be supported through a group or class discussion.
There is an opportunity for teachers to add formative assessment comments.
Example
Topic Shanty towns
Key ideas and concepts
Shanty towns are `marginal' or informal settlements
They are irregular, low-cost dwellings, usually on land belonging to third parties
Most often located on the edge of cities
Shanty towns are mostly found in developing nations, with an unequal distribution of wealth
Some shanty towns have populations approaching that of a city
Summary of main points
Dwellings are often assembled from pieces of plywood, corrugated metal, sheets of plastic,
and any other material that will provide cover
Shanty towns usually have high rates of crime, suicide, and disease
On the other hand, they may also be places of hope, with a sense of a counter-culture
In 2004, it was estimated that 19% of Rio's population lived within favelas
Rocinha, Pavãozinho, Parada de Lucas, Cidade de Deus, Maré and Turano are some of the most
famous of Rio's favelas
In general, shanty towns become more developed and established over time, and buildings
become improved as people invest in them
