Teaching and Learning working groups: 11th November 2020

Looking forward to delving into our areas for development:

– Challenge

– Scaffolding

– Online learning

– Vocabulary

Challenge

@teacherhead explores ideas about attitudes and mindsets, and their influence on attainment. Ideas of embedding challenge into routine has certainly got me thinking of ways to implement #teachtothetop, leaving no child ‘under-challenged’.

Scaffolding

Great article by @WordLib. Love the ideas on modelling!

Online learning

Teaching Online: Using ‘Lecture Pauses’ Helps Retention

@TeacherToolkit up next for our ‘Online Learning’ research. Not only a great reference guide to other blogs he’s written, but sharing thoughts about encouraging reflection whilst teaching online.

Vocabulary

‘We Did Vocabulary Last Year’

Last, but never least: vocabulary. For this, there’s one key expert to consider @HuntingEnglish and the idea that one can never ‘over-do’ vocabulary.
