Teaching for Mastery
Part 2
Part two of the series where we will continue to plan our way through a learning episode looking taking a closer look at impactful ways in which we can improve worked examples, offer pupils more purposeful practice and how to use tasks that deepen understanding and connect learning.

Teach, Do, Practise, Behave: Fractions In this webinar we will look how we can phase the learning of fractions using the teach, do, practise, behave model. In particular we will look at a snap shot of how we could teach a learning episode on fractions, including some useful tasks and models to use to offer opportunities to connect idea and build true conceptual understanding. This webinar builds on previous webinars using Cuisenaire Rods and bar modelling. Gary Lamb 31 July 2020 09:30 1 hour £20

Embedding Problem Solving The session will consider ways of ensuring problem solving is not a 'bolt on', but is well planned and scheduled to complement and enhance a rich experience of learning mathematics. Gary Lamb 20 Aug 2020 09:30 1 hour £20
Responsive Teaching In this webinar, we will take a deep dive into what it means to be more responsive in the classroom. We will work on example tasks/prompts that exemplify how we can gain a better idea to whether true understanding has taken place. Corrective teaching is of paramount importance in the mathematics classroom and we will look at some of the research and models of how we can make this work in practice.

Big Ideas in Mathematics *NEW How do we communicate mathematics to our pupils? What models and metaphors we can offer to make our mathematics become the students’ personalised awareness of mathematics. In this webinar, we will explore some ‘big ideas’ in mathematics that permeate our curricula and how we should carefully plan and give attention to the communication of the technical detail.
