Magpie Number 3 – Retrieval Practice Challenge Grids

magpie-clipart-cartoon-1This series of blog posts are going to bring you a range of new T&L ideas from a range of different sources.

Over recent months we have been highlighting different techniques which encourage students to retrieve knowledge they have learnt in the past.

I saw this idea on Twitter and it has been created by Kate Jones (@87History). The Retrieval Practice Challenge Grids can be used as a starter activity. If students pick a question which is linked to knowledge covered a week ago they get one point, if they pick a question covered two weeks ago they get two points etc. I would give them a set amount of time, maybe 5 minutes, to complete as many as they can and achieve as many points as they can.

This example is based on recapping and revising a History topic (Source: @87History).
