Challenge-Based Learning – Morning
Challenge based learning is an engaging approach to teaching and learning that encourages learners to leverage a range of resources they use in their daily lives to solve ‘real world’ problems. The children start with a challenge and are then empowered to make their own choices to solve the problem. This approach allows children to apply their skills to real life problems that are relevant and engaging.
Challenge Based Learning is collaborative and hands-on, asking students to work with peers, teachers, and experts in their communities to ask good questions, develop deep subject knowledge, identify and solve challenges, take action, and share their experience. Consequently children learn through experience and collaboration whilst teachers and adults can teach and move learning forwards with timely precision when the children are most receptive. We will facilitate you in understanding the philosophy, implementation into daily practice, lesson design & planning and helping you to fit it into a wider curriculum.
Critique – Afternoon
Critique is a robust peer-to-peer assessment protocol proven to accelerate progress in any year group across the primary phase. By following the ‘golden rules’ of being Kind, Helpful & Specific all children can produce beautiful work of which they are immensely proud without the need for hours on hours of teacher marking.
This practical workshop will:
• Take you through a step-by-step guide to the protocols;
• Demonstrate how to engage students in Critique;
• Develop the language of critique;
• Facilitate encouraging students to embrace the culture of beautiful work;
• Support you with developing a culture of creating multiple drafts in order to produce beautiful work where time is not the enemy.
