Mastery meets Rosenshine: Webinars on strategies to maximise learning

Mastery meets Rosenshine: Webinars on strategies to maximise learning


Teachers are telling us their frustrations at not being able to do so many things in the current situation. If learning isn't to suffer, we have to make the available strategies - like direct instruction - even more effective. Teachers said they want guidance on 4 of 'Rosenshine's 10 principles'. So we've optimised these for science and put together 4 webinars with powerful, practical strategies:

    Mastery meets Rosenshine Webinars: Strategies to maximise learning
    Starts Wednesday 4th Nov, 6pm. Repeaed Thursday 5th 7pm.
