Speed dating learning activity

Given that the class is quite big and there is such a huge range in ability levels, I found this lesson worked fantastically well.Every student (including those who I thought may not engage that well) were completely on task for the whole duration of the lesson. Concentric circle exercise Half the class are boys and the other half are girls.---------------------------------- Give this to those who will be the boys. A new method of dating offers the hope you won't have to waste as much time getting through the duds (a person your not interested in) to find the delights.I used a speed dating concept from the whole school INSET day delivered at the start of the year and adapted it to suit my AS PE class.My class were studying a topic on the organisation of sport in the UK and were struggling to get to grips with all of the various organisational bodies and their roles.Speed dating has been popular in larger metropolitan areas in recent years.

They were asked to sit at a table with others who had the same question.This enabled them to cross reference their new understanding with model responses.This enabled students to identify and subsequently ‘fill’ any knowledge gaps that they may still have had.It is definitely something that I will use again in the future with this class and others – not just because it was fun for the students but, more importantly, it increased the quality of student learning and rapidly progressed their understanding of the topic.Once the topic has been finished, pupils can engage in a speed dating activity using the worksheet attached.
