Easy Mastery CPD
Are you doing mastery or the 5-year plan and finding it a challenge? Are you struggling to help colleagues adopt the mastery mindset? This CPD programme will take teachers through the nuts and bolts of making mastery work in the classroom. And it will give you a clear understanding of how each change can improve learning. Easy Mastery is based on insights from teachers who have been doing it successfully and helping staff to make the transition.
Only £169 for one teacher or £229 for two teachers, until 31st May 2019 (£199/£259 after). Easy Mastery builds on the successful Kickstart Workshops.
Easy Mastery adopts research-based principles behind effective CPD:
✔ Clear focus: on the 5 critical learning stages for reaching mastery, and what each looks like when you teach it
✔ Active learning: learn by analysing good and bad examples, reflecting on the lesson you taught, and re-designing teaching episodes
✔ Collaborative learning: work with a colleague and observe each other teach the lessons, or compare your strategies with other teachers at the workshop
✔ Extended duration: more than a 1-day workshop, with lesson teaching beforehand and follow-up
✔ School factors: opportunity to discuss individual challenges with a clinic at the workshop and through email
✔ Coherence: based on the 5-year plan big ideas approach and our 5A's learning progression
Mastery is a system to improve the performance of all students. Backed up by decades of research, it can help low and middle-achieving students acquire and apply concepts, and high achievers extend their understanding further.
However, as with all innovations, implementation is everything. Easy Mastery will help you overcome the challenges to success: evidence-informed teaching models, resources that are fully aligned with objectives, and assessment that drives adaptive teaching. Easy Mastery offers:
✔ Lesson plans and materials to teach a topic before the workshop
✔ 1-day workshop to work through a mastery sequence step by step, with lesson analysis and a clinic for individual challenges
✔ Follow-up support for re-teaching the topic
✔ Online seminar in Autumn term for further follow-up
I attended your workshop and thought it was brilliant. Excellent resources to help ensure mastery of science. We have a lot of work to do!
An extremely thought-provoking course, for rethinking priorities in teaching science and the possibility of creating more 'space' in the curriculum.
An inspiring day with so many ideas. I definitely plan to make a start and make changes.
I really enjoyed this philosophy on education; really made me think. I will be changing the way I do things.
Great concept ideas: I will be suggesting these to my HoD and using Big Ideas. Thanks for a very good learning experience.
A really helpful course and lots of great ideas to start implementing.
Very useful and relevant. Likely to make an immediate impact on planning for lessons.
Fabulous day – I’ve got a lot from it. Lots of good ideas and discussions.
Great to have topic/syllabus drawn up as I’ve been battling this in my own rewrite from scratch.
