The teachers who achieved outstanding in our recent Ofsted ticked the boxes by planning 3 x 20 min sessions within the lesson.  This enabled the teachers to show progrss within each part of the lesson and generally observations were only for 20 mins. Just an idea....

IMO you have to divide the lesson up into 20 minute maximum sessions or at the very least have mini plenaries, plenaries that are flexible I.E If Ofsted appear part way through the lesson then you need to use a plenary at the earliest possible convenience. You should hopefully have set a learning objective and have 3 learning outcomes, your progress is shown by the questioning / AFL techniques used in those plenaries.

Also, control the agenda! If students have been making good progress in previous lesson, if you have given formative feedback (marking) and pupils have made progress because of that feedback. Photocopy exemplars (keep them in a folder and give them to Mr/Mrs OFSTED and/or SLT along with your seating plan, lesson plan.

Tick the boxes in advance for whomever is inspecting you!! Make their task easy and better for you.

Hi
We go for lesson episodes, 4x 15 mins in a 1 hour lesson. Recap, new information, activity to practice, high order creative demonstration. All re thinking skills / multiple intelligences, young peoples geography etc etc     As for showing progress out of the lesson, children have individual target grades and have to meet these on regular homeworks or redo, and then we put a grades check on each homework to show how to meet that target on the homework at the bottom - example attached: http://www.school-portal.co.uk/GroupDownloadFile.asp?GroupId=1160515&ResourceID=4220167

Do get in touch if you want more ideas

Cindy's dartboards are on the sln website under Geo Excellence.  We have found them useful.
