As educators, we want to see all our learners succeed and graduate to the next year group with confidence. Our goal is to make sure there are no gaps in learning throughout the year, so children can avoid playing catch up in years to come.
This isn’t always an easy task.
Mid-year assessment and data tracking is essential to identifying learning gaps, and the outcomes play an important role in shaping your plan for the second half of the year. If your mid-year data reveals gaps in learning, using daily learning intervention strategies and intervention groups can be an effective solution.
What is a learning intervention?
Daily interventions are focused, additional maths activities used to make sure a small group of learners keep up with their classmates. They’re also effective teaching tools for plugging specific gaps in learning.
When should I schedule learning intervention strategies?
Learning intervention strategies that move children forward can be scheduled as either a pre-teaching tool or as a follow up intervention after a lesson. Each type of learning intervention happens at a different time in relation to the lesson, but ultimately, they both serve the same purpose.
Let’s take a look at the different types of learning intervention strategies and how you can make the most of them to support your learners.
