Take an A4 sheet fold in both sides, then cut the ‘cover ‘ in half as shown in the photos.
Now write a note in each section to shows students what you want them to think about.
Inside I wrote the question with lots of room for working.
KS4 students found this really helpful in longer QWC questions.
They thought about:
1) what is being asked of them,
2) how to approach it ,
3) what maths they had to do,
They had space inside to set out their working and finally a reminder to check they have actually answered the question.
