ASPIRATIONAL TEACHING – 26th April 2018
Aspirational Teaching – Creating Aspirational Learners
“If we create a culture where every teacher believes they need to improve, not because they are not good enough, but because they can be even better, there is no limit to what we can achieve” – Dylan Williams
Session 1 – Focuses on assessment and feedback – looking at the effectiveness of marking and alternative models that are successful. We consider how marking can be meaningful, manageable and motivating.
Session 2 – We look at the importance of planning and creating a learning journey to help children navigate their own learning. We consider how to make learning relevant to their own experiences. We look a the 5 minute plan and consider how we could use this in our practise.
Session 3 – During the final session we focus on the delivery of quality first teaching for ALL children, based upon Barak Rosenshine’s model of “Revisit, scaffold, question, model, guide, assess, success, scaffold independent practise, review”. The layout of the classroom and how it related to children’s learning is also considered.
