Review of DTT
DTT is a philosophy about how best to structure and plan educational interventions. Applying DTT will enable you to a) benchmark the starting point of your pupils and b) work out what you need to do to move them forward. Coupled with the idea of a Learning Checklist, this process will give you everything you need to plan and structure your work with your pupils.
Definition of key terms:
Diagnosis – diagnosing where your pupils are starting from
Therapy - delivering support to help your pupils develop the skills they need to master the topics on their Personalised Learning Checklist by:
a. Creating a plan of how you are going to help your pupils
b. Creating and delivering great tuition sessions that implement your plan
Test – measuring the progress of your pupils
Learning Checklist - a list of everything pupils need to know and do to be able to succeed at their curriculum level
Personalised Learning Checklist - a checklist that compares the knowledge and skills your pupils need to master to succeed at their curriculum level, with where they are at currently
The DTT cycles
The DTT process can be applied on the macro level over the whole programme, and also on a weekly basis
Whole programme DTT
Over the whole programme it can be used to benchmark the pupils at the start of the programme, work out the help you are going to give them, and test at points over the programme to check whether your intervention is making a difference
DTT can be applied to help you structure your tutorials. Diagnosing, delivering therapy and then testing at the end
Whole programme DTT
Aim 1: you access the data on your pupils and complete a diagnosis
It is important that you understand where your pupils are starting on the programme. This includes not just their academic performance, but also understanding other dimensions of their experience within education e.g. how engaged and motivated they are and how organised they are. Understanding where they are starting from will help you work out the specific help that they need. Your role as tutors is not just to raise academic attainment, its also to inspire and motivate your pupils and to be a champion for their future.
In your school folder, you will be given access to a range of data about your pupils. This may include the following:
personal characteristics such as gender or whether the pupil is EAL or SEN
an assessment from the teachers about the attitudes and attributes of your pupils
academic progress in the subject you are tutoring
academic progress in other subjects
a self assessment from the pupils on their own attitudes and attributes
If your pupil is 'EAL' it means they have English as an additional language i.e. English is not their first language and in most cases not the language they speak at home
Sometimes fluency in English is graded 1-4 where 1 is the lowest level
If your pupils 'SEN', this means they have Special Educational Needs such as learning difficulties, dyslexia, dyspraxia. If your pupils is SEN the specific learning needs should be specified.
All information for the programme will be stored either in:
your school folder
your classroom folder
Your school folder: all info pertaining to your school
Your school folder looks like this:
Doing your pupil diagnosis
To complete your pupil diagnosis sheets you will need:
1. Handout 1 - the pupil diagnosis worksheet - one for each pupil
2. Access to your school data folder within your school folder
3. Assessment 1 if your pupils have sat this
4. The mark scheme for assessment 1
1. Pupil diagnosis worksheet template
2. Scheme of Work template
3. Lesson plan template
4. Example lesson plan
5. Lesson plan 'help sheet'
In your classroom folder you will find a sub folder called 'Resources'. In your resources folder you can find DTT resources for your Key Stage and subject
You can find handout 1-5 in your classroom folder in your P2 handouts
You can find all of the information about your pupils in your School data folder
For now you do not need to upload your pupil diagnosis sheets, but make sure you keep them safe as you may need to upload the sheets for the purpose of evidencing your qualification
Aim 2: you use the data and the diagnosis to create a Personalised Learning Checklist for each pupil
Now that you have done a holistic diagnosis of the issues facing your pupils, you will want to get a clearer sense of where your pupils are academically.
To do this properly, you need a clear context for the work you are doing with them: you need to know more about the programme of study they are following and the ultimate goal that you want them to reach.
To do this you will need:
1. The Pupil Grouping, Curriculum and Timetable spreadsheet
2. The Learning Checklist for your pupil
3. Any other data the school have provided on your pupils
You can find your Pupil Grouping, curriculum and Timetable spreadsheet in your School data folder
Step 1: identify the curriculum focus your school has set out for your pupils
Step 2: find the appropriate Learning Checklist
Step 3: Use your assessment or other data from the school to work out which topics your pupils is strong at and which they are weak at
This is an example Personalised Learning Checklist created by one school for their pupils. Some schools may provide this for you in your school data folder.
The orange section of the spreadsheet will indicate what topics the school want you to focus on with your pupils group
Now that you know what your pupils need most help with, you can design a plan of what you are going to do over the programme to help them.
Your SOW is a simple way of setting out this plan in a logical and coherent fashion.
Your school should have grouped your pupils by ability level, so you should find that they have similar strengths and weaknesses. You will need to take the issues they have in common and build your SOW around these. You will need to think carefully about how you address any individual issues they have. You could, for example, plan one week where you set them on separate tasks - but you will need to think about how you would manage this carefully.
Aim 4: you understand how to implement your SOW through planning quality tutorials
Now that you have your SOW, you are ready to start planning your tutorial sessions.
Each week you will need to go to your SOW and reference the topic you have planned to teach.
Each of your tutorials should be structured with by the DTT process.
Aim 5: you understand the next steps you need to take
You will need to make sure that you are fully prepared for your first tutorial. To fully prepare you will need to have:
Marked any assessment papers your pupils have sat
Completed your holistic diagnosis for each of your pupils
Completed your Personal Learning Checklist for each of your pupils
Put together a Scheme of Work
Planned your first tutorial
You will need to start your lesson by doing an activity that will help you to diagnose where your pupils are at with the particular topic you are teaching. You may have some idea on this already from your first programme diagnosis and from the PLC, but this activity will help you a) to learn more about the particular issues your pupils have and b) to be able to do a before and after comparison of the therapy you will deliver in the tutorial.
Informed by your diagnosis activity, you can spend the main bulk of the tutorial helping your pupils get better at the topic. This might involve teaching them content so they improve their knowledge, or helping them develop and practice particular skills.
At the end of the session, you will need to test whether your pupils have reached the outcomes you want them to
To find resources that can help you with this, you will need to go to your resources folder.
You can find Diagnosis, Therapy and Test activities on your Learning Checklist
Note that Assessments 2 and 3 are already prepared for you in your resources folder. Do not use these for your tutorials as these have been earmarked to be used in the December and March tests.
You can also find suggestions for where you can get other therapy ideas in your 'therapy' folder
In the 'Tutor Lesson plans and materials' folder for each KS and subject/exam board, you can check to see if there are any previous tutor materials saved in here. Make sure you save your own so you can share, learn and develop with you fellow tutors.
To help you organise your thoughts, you will need to write your plan down into a lesson plan. We have provided you with a template in your classroom folder. To fill out your lesson plan, take the following steps:
1. Create objectives for your lesson. The objectives should set out what you want the pupils to know or be able to do by the end of the lesson e.g. 'pupils can describe how cells are grouped to form tissues'. You can have multiple objectives for one lesson, but be realistic about how much you will be able to cover. Note that chunking down your objectives into a series of singular tasks is the most important part of your plan - the more simple the objective, the easier it is for your to measure whether it has been met or not. When you know what you want to achieve, you can work backwards from there.
2. Plan your 'diagnosis' activity. This activity should take no more than about 10-15 minutes of the tutorial. Think about how you are going to mark the activity? Will you get pupils to mark their own scripts, or to mark each others'? Or will you set them on another task whilst you mark them? Note that any of you teaching KS4 maths or science will have access to Study Smart GCSE software which enables you to get your pupils doing diagnosis and test activities via their smart phones/tablets.
3. Plan your therapy. Use the suggested links and any text books the school has given you to work out how you are going to achieve your objective. What knowledge do you need to give your pupils? What skills do you need to teach them? How are you going to get them to learn or practice this so that they really understand and retain it?
4. Plan your 'test'. At the end of the lesson, you need to work out whether your pupils has in fact reached the objectives you set out. If they have, great, you know you can move on next week. If they are still having problems, you now have the opportunity to give them extra help. Do you want to set them some homework? Do you to amend your SOW and spend more time on the topic next week?
Your lesson plan template and help sheet can be found in your P2 folder
Preparing for your first tutorial
We recommend that you spend the first part of the first tutorial feeding back about what you have learned about the pupils and explaining your plan going forward:
Always ensure each of your pupils is engaged in a task that is meaningful to them. E.g. if you need to give feedback to one pupil, set the other pupils on a task OR explain what you want them to get out of listening.
Find ways of helping pupils engage with the material rather than just passively receive it. E.g. you could get the pupils to mark their own paper, or identify the topics they found most difficult, then discuss as a group.
Share your SOW with them and ask them to identify if they have any thing they would add or change?
Ask them to set a personal goal for the rest of the programme - where do they want to get to at the end?
Use the remainder of the session to start teaching on a topic
Next units of training
Your next unit of training will provide more information on how to teach your subject at your key stage, including some ideas on activities that you might use for therapy.
So, we have covered a lot here!! We suggest you now go back through the prezi and pause at the end of each aim to do the activities step by step.
Completing your Impact Register
At the end of your lesson, you need to complete your Impact Register to indicate how your pupils have done in the session.
You can find your Learning Checklist in your Resources folder
Aim 3: You use the Personalised Learning Checklist to create a Scheme of Work for your group
Your lesson plan template
Your 'help sheet' to get you thinking about the key elements of the lesson
You can find your register in your school folder
Well done! This unit is by far the most complex you will receive, and you will be learning more about many of the topics here over the rest of the programme. Make sure you enjoy your first tutorial - this is where it all begins!! And now to finish off....
