As part of the ‘Help Yourself’ Resource Station, I’ve been making ‘slow’ progress on creating resources for my students to use to develop their independence in the classroom.
The idea is if a student is stuck they can collect relevant resources from the station to support them. Resources come in two types – topic specific such as information sheets on the subject content stored in the Current Topic or skill support such as literacy mats and source analysis overlays stored in the trays on the table below the board.
Last term one of my year groups focused on source interpretation in their History topic, next term they are looking at source analysis. To help them become more independent with this I’ve created a support mat, this is likely to be used in conjunction with the Source Overlays from ActiveHistory and on their own later in the topic/year.

Hope it can be of use to you.
