Tools for schools to help support home learning and maximise the impact of work set.
The Covid-19 crisis has seen schools having to respond rapidly to a host of new challenges. To help support home learning and maximise the impact of work set, the EEF has produced some initial planning and reflection tools, below. We intend to draw upon the expertise of schools, further developing resources that can help everyone 'bounce back' when schools do re-open.
List of resources:
Metacognitive strategies will be particularly important for your pupils if you can’t be with them in the classroom. This framework can help schools create learning sequences while conducting home learning. Adapted from the EEF guidance report, Metacognition and Self-regulated Learning.
Questions for senior leaders to reflect on when schools set home learning to ensure the needs of disadvantaged pupils are taken into account – built on evidence from five EEF Guidance Reports.
Practical tips, including suggested text messages and emails schools can send to promote shared reading, home learning routines, and maths at home.
