Thursday 23th November 2017 9am to 12pm
Venue: St. Benet Biscop Catholic Academy
Aims of the course.
The session is concerned with developing strategies that raise aspirations for our Least Able students and give them the opportunities to do more than they believe possible: ‘teaching up’ rather the ‘teaching to’. The group will be supported with a range of strategies that will encourage a ‘growth mindset’ for students and foster an environment of high expectation, regardless of ability – offering support and challenge for our Least Able.
Who is the course aimed at?
The session is suitable for all teachers, who have the capacity and commitment to advance and develop. In particular the session would benefit established practitioners who are looking to further develop expert practice and disseminate ideas across the curriculum. It will equip participants with a range of strategies which you can immediately employ on return to school to, enhancing classroom and pupil performance and raising standards in your school.
What does it involve?
The programme consists of one morning session on Thursday 23 November 2017 9am to 12pm. The session is facilitated by Monica Kelsey, Associate Senior leader at St. Benet Biscop Catholic Academy.
The session will involve presentation and workshop based learning activities, pedagogical discussions and opportunities for reflection on current practice and developments for the future with a focus on long term planning.
