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:
Starts Wednesday 4th Nov, 6pm. Repeaed Thursday 5th 7pm.
- ensure deep processing and avoid cognitive overload
- simplify scientific ideas using analogies
- simplify scientific skills using thinking guides
- use reading and questions
- decide if it's safe to move on or re-teach
- provide actionable feedback
- use text-based 'corrective' activities
- use active reading to build knowledge
- teach text structure to help students interpret
- ramp up practice from recall to application
- create a spaced testing system (from Blueprint)
Catchup session 1: Review and rethink
This is a repeat as one of the original sessions was postponed.
- identify existing ideas for checking
- elicit wrong ideas and knowledge gaps
- 'rethink': challenge misconceptions and fill gaps
- extend students while others 'rethink'
NB. On the registration form, select the option in 'Webinar schedule' that says 'Register to all dates below'.
The webinar are led by Tony Sherborne and Gemma Young from Mastery Science, who designed the KS3 Science Syllabus and the 5-year plan, with support from AQA.
"Thought-provoking, "very helpful", "lots of ideas to take away". Join 1000+ teachers who have attended the monthly webinars for latest in our series: Build an outstanding curriculum.
