Mastery in Practice: Teaching by Problem Solving Webinar
To do well at new GCSE, students have to become good at solving unfamiliar problems. But typical science lessons focus on knowledge that students are unable to apply. The mindset you need for new GCSE is to teach concepts as tools for solving problems, not facts to regurgitate.
Complete Mastery is a course that aims at preparing students to apply and analyse knowledge. Come to the webinar and hear from teachers who have been using the course to teach through problem-solving, and find out how it works in practice:
- Specific challenges for each stage of the lesson
- What teachers have done to solve them
- What impact mastery is having
