Personal Learning Checklists (PLCs) feature lists of all required learning for a unit or course: students run through the list, indicating for each topic how confident they feel in relation to it and how secure their learning is.
Personal learning checklists are a fantastic example of self-regulated learning and metacognition since students can use them to monitor and evaluate their learning and then plan and regulate it accordingly.
This download includes four PLC templates: teachers need simply need to add the list of topics for their respective subjects and they are ready to go. On the reverse side of each learning checklist is a series of metacognitive reflection tasks and target-setting activities: this enhances the usefulness of the learning checklist and helps students to use of their self-monitoring and evaluation work to steer, direct and regulate learning.
Personal Learning Checklists should be used by all teachers in all subjects: they are especially useful in subjects where students are preparing for formal summative assessments [exams] and, ideally, the list of topics on the checklist should be faithful to the exam specification they are using.
Please note: the preview images depict completed templates for illustrative purposes, teachers will need to add topics for their respective subjects/units before using the PLCs.
