WAGOLL (What a good one looks like)
- Some teachers have created work themselves to provide a model of A* work. Once one student has achieved this standard, that student's work can be used as an example in future.
- Another idea is for students to compare and contrast their own work with the WAGOLL work and to complete a Venn diagram identifying what they have achieved and what could be improved:
- For subjects where students write essays, you could mix up six paragraphs from two different essays (three from a grade A and three from a grade C, for example) and get students to sort them into the different grades and be able to say why one is better.
- When introducing a new task to students, you could get them in groups to look at four different examples (e.g. four persuasive speeches) and get them to come up with the criteria for a successful persuasive speech before they go on to write their own.
