Buzz Words

While searching for inspiration for Assignment 2 I came across this history lesson,  and it contained an acronym that I had not ever heard before – WALA – and another that looked vaguely familiar but I could not quite work out – WALT. I did a google and found this blog that talked about some other acronyms used by teachers, and how they help students focus on the skills and strategies they need to complete a task instead of being overly concerned with the result.

FYI, a WALA is “We are learning about”, and a WALT is “We are learning to”, and a WILF is “What I’m looking for”.

You are welcome.
