This lesson is based on classroom practice that has been proven, by research, to work.

The Past Perfect Tense Self-Assessment


Having made notes with a partner (part 1) and experienced peer teaching (and peer learning) and making a video (part 2) in a group of four pupils should now be ready to work on their own. After answering the questions pupils then self-assess their work. The idea is to check that pupils’ individual understanding of The Past Perfect Tense is secure.

After completing this question and answer self-assessment unit pupils are in a position to see whether they are a purple monster (peer learner) or a green monster (peer teacher) of this topic. Purple monsters should be encouraged to watch videos on this topic.



Part 1: The Grammar Lesson – Collaboration

Pupils will work collaboratively in a pair to write brief notes about the grammar topic in this lesson.

Part 2: Creating an ‘Expert’ Group – Peer Teaching

One pair will now work with another pair to teach what they know about the topic to each other – this will develop collaborative learning and peer teaching skills. In addition, a group of four ‘experts’ on this grammar topic has now been created. This expert group of four will now make a short video on the grammar topic and show their video to the rest of the class.

Part 3: Individual Q & A – Self-Assessment

After experiencing collaborative learning and peer teaching of the grammar topic, pupils now need to work on their own to check that their individual understanding of the topic is secure.
