Teaching for Mastery - Exploring Effective Lesson Design
This project will equip you to identify and understand the key features involved in designing lessons in a teaching for mastery context, see them in practice, and create materials to use in your class/school.
Run across the academic year, participants will have an opportunity to observe three of our Mastery Specialist Teachers, co-create materials and then develop practice back in school.
Audience: this project is aimed at schools who are implementing a teaching for mastery approach to their mathematics lessons. Schools are expected to enrol two teachers each (and both teachers must attend all sessions).
Day 1: 17th November 2017 – Chesterton Primary School, Battersea
Day 2: 26th January 2018 – The Federation of St Elphege’s Catholic Schools, Sutton
Day 3: 3rd May 2018 – The Russell School, Richmond
All sessions run from 9.30am to 3pm.
In between the sessions, participants are expected to develop their own practice around lesson design, work closely with their in-school co-participant and keep a reflective journal. The project lead will visit some of the project schools to support and evaluate practice.
