Daily Review Questions
What is this?
Daily review questioning is the informal re-capping of key learning that has been undertaken in a relevant or associated previous lesson.
Why is this Important?
Daily review questions are a form of revision that enables the children to recall previous learning and connect learning together in readiness to build upon this and make new connections. Such connections support the development of long-term memory.
How do I do this?
Prepare appropriate question/s based on the previous day’s marking/assessment, perhaps using Bloom’s taxonomy as an aid. Daily review questions should take no more than 8 minutes.
It can be approached in different ways such as - responding to marking, asking direct questions, groups discussing a particular question, recapping key vocabulary or providing a space for questions that the children have to be answered - this can be differentiated across the class (not all need to do the same).
