Hello
The advice I gave to one of my students last night may help. The early TAQS have asked you to look at assessment and learning styles so you have a good basic understanding of these topics.
A techniques for raising standards could potentially teaching to a learning style , assessments (diagnostic, formative , summative)
So at the very minimum you will be looking at teachers working with a student's particular learning style (or not remember this is the evaluation point) and whether that has any effect on whether that student achieves (raising achievement)
Then you could look at assessment methods you have described in them TAQ 2 now you really have to consider whether they are good tools to raise achievement.
Then get on to the Ofsted web site and see what they say about the tools that are useful for raising achievement is it teaching to learning styles, assessment or is it more complex?is it effective teaching strategies what makes and effective teacher?
So that is forming the bones of your work :-
Each section forms a paragraph after your introduction 1)assessment - 2)learning styles-3) effective teaching - 4)plus any other strategies factors motivation, autonomy, self esteem ,
Then a snappy conclusion telling me exactly how we can raise standards
I hope this helps as this is the sort of thing I am looking for in the answers that my students are producing
