At my school we use PEEFEE to analyse texts:
P – point
E – evidence
E – explanation
FE – focused exploration – analysis of language, structure, form , contextual links etc
E – effect
Year 7 students have been introduced to this structure. For their KS2 exams, only one of these ‘PEE’ paragraphs are required so it is a fairly new skill for them to learn. They had written a PEEFEE on Beowulf before moving on to The Canterbury Tales. The personalised learning lesson happens after my marking of my students PEEFEE paragraphs on The Canterbury Tales. The idea is that once they have had their specific feedback, I will organise them into groups: those who haven’t quite nailed the point/evidence part of the paragraph; those who haven’t quite nailed the explanation part of the paragraph; those who haven’t nailed the focused exploration and those who need to tweak their effect and they will have an opportunity to work in groups to develop a particular skill. This work is completed in these groups independently whilst I work with the students who are doing the point/evidence.
