Adding Educational Value

Adding value to the educational experience of each and every child, whether in a class setting or not, takes some work initially, but that work saves hours and hours of harder work later on. Here’s a five step procedure to guide you through:

1. Take existing class lists, or a list of any group of students to whom you are delivering a subject or something educational.

2. Divide the students into 5 horizontal frames based on your assessment and observation, using whatever guides you need to for your subject as appropriate, in order to tell what your students should be doing at their class and year level.

Frame 1 should contain each student who is finding the subject challenging, and who is struggling with basic concepts

Frame 2 lists the students who are grasping some basics but not the more advanced concepts in the subject

Frame 3 contains the students who are grasping not only the basics but also some advanced concepts (these are the middle range, average capability students).

Frame 4 contains those students who are grasping the more advanced concepts

Frame 5 lists those who find the subject unchallenging, and who therefore need the next level of material.
