Piper's Hill College
October's Teaching and Learning Club was presented by Ms Sunderland who showed how we could use the Spider Diagram (Star Diagram or Radar Diagram as they are also known). This is a great way for student's to reflect on their learning and see clearly and visually the areas they need to focus on. Below are examples of a blank diagram and one filled in by our geography students in preparation for a test. Student label each line and place a dot along the line to show how well they understand that topic. The closer to the middle the dot is, the less they understand while the further along the line the better they understand it. This helps student's prioritise what areas they should focus on more and if they complete this exercise before and after a test they can see how they have improved.
