I read Claire's book once, then I read it again and then I read it again. Initially, when asked to define AfL (normally by a nervous looking NQT), I reply with -˜ask yourself -” did the students learn what you wanted them to learn and if so how do you know?'.
Claire's book actually takes the concept to a much more holistic level than this by positioning AfL as more a form of thinking; one which should permeate everything thing we do rather than being just a box ticking exercise at the end of the lesson.
For both the seasoned professional and the NQT this book is a goldmine of ideas and techniques but more importantly it allows practitioners to apply the principle of Growth Mindset to every part of their teaching -” and student learning.
I learned a lot from reading it.
