In this vignette, the year 9 teacher describes how students' feedback about their learning, and data gathered about the use of grammar conventions in the construction of complex sentences, have informed the teaching, learning and assessment focus. She describes the shared learning intentions and success criteria.
The teacher demonstrates how she varies the speed and delivery of instruction in response to feedback, as well as how she provides targeted learning experiences.
