What does Plenary mean?

Discussion in 'Art and design' started by anon1605, Jun 16, 2009.

  1. Hi,

    What does this mean in the school context? Have searched on net but am just getting confused.

    thanks
     
  2. It is a short activity at the end of a lesson which is generally some kind of evaluative activity of what happened during the lesson. It could be as straightforward as some Q&A which would enable the teacher to evaluate if the objectives had been met, and what the students had actually taken in during the lesson. It could involve asking them some questions which might make them think further about the lesson topic. It could be a short quiz. It could be student self or peer evaluation task. It rounds off the lesson and hopefully consolidates some of the learning. In art, it might be something like gathering all the work together and discussing which pieces worked really well as a whole group or even smaller groups of four of so - getting them to point out what they think really worked and why. Talking about how to improve and move forward as a group next time. That kind of thing.

    It means 'As a plenary task, write down 2 things that went well or 2 things that you've learned (2 stars) and 1 thing you want to know more about or want to improve on (a wish).'

    Basically, it's an ageing buzzword that means nothing. Plenaries were in fashion a few years back...
