Using the Easy-Easier Posting Box™ to gain the learner’s voice
The ‘Easy-Easier’ statements, and the Posting Box activity as a whole, are designed to enable the learner’s voice to be heard, and to facilitate a conversation with the learner.
One of the important principles of the approach is the practitioner’s ability to ‘listen’ without influencing or directing the learner during the activity; to largely stay quiet and allow the learner to lead the activity is crucial to the success of this intervention.
Action plans and scaffolding support
Following the Easy-Easier activity, the learner participates in planning their actions, thinking about ‘HOW, WHAT, WHO’ can help them. Specially designed scaffolding plans are designed by the practitioner in liaison with ALL key practitioners and the learner.
