Fill my brain – a great plenary strategy

Fill my brain was something I saw and expanded upon from the @CaldiesMusic Plenary Learning Grid resource which can be found through this link – https://jivespin.wordpress.com/2013/06/18/plenary-learning-grids-adding-student-choice-to-the-end-of-your-lessons/ This easy to implement strategy requires students to draw an outline of their brain. Once this is done ask students to fill their brain with as much as they have learned in the lesson. They can do this through writing key words, bullet points, drawings anything they like. This then gives their brain a word cloud like image. Once this is done they have to highlight the most important thing in their brain what has happened this lesson.

An extremely quick and easy way to highlight progress but also allowing students to summarise their learning in an engaging and accessible way. The PowerPoint slide below outlines the activity to students and the photographs show some of the outcomes which were used this week.
