More venues to come, for September.
We have chosen 4 challenges that teachers told us they were struggling to implement. In each one, we provide a selection of practical strategies, the rationale behind the Syllabus innovation, and free supporting resources. So you can make e a confident start with using the Syllabus in September.
4.00 pm “A Syllabus teaching framework which is geared to AO2 and AO3 at GCSE.”
- Follow the Taxonomy (like SOLO) from Key Words to Know Ideas to Apply
- ‘Teaching for transfer’ using hugging and bridging
- Using ‘authentic tasks’ like Engage’s to develop extended writing
4.30pm “How to use the Mastery objectives and track progress.”
We will go through how to use the 5 components of a Mastery system with the Syllabus
- Teach towards the individual constructs in Know Ideas
- Assess Know and Apply diagnostically
- Give individualised ‘re-learn’ activities for students who didn’t get it
- Give activities on the Extend objectives for students who did get it
- Re-assess and use the degree of mastery to track progress over time
5.00pm “Activities to assess knowledge and skills ”
- Turn Engage activities into open tasks to allow students to demonstrate understanding
- How to write rubrics to assess application of ideas, and skill fluency
- Try out Engage’s open performance tasks (not yet published)
5.30 “Integrate Working Scientifically to prepare for GCSE practical exams.”
We will go through 3 stages for skill development that are built into the Syllabus design
- Teach individual skills explicitly within content topics
- Give sufficient practice to build fluency over time in different topics
- Teach the ‘thinking behind the doing’ (Apply) in later topics
