Working with colleagues
- Engaging in dialogue together around planning for learning and the underlying learning theories;
- Modelling and exemplifying with each other the different ideas seen during the course such as those associated with:a. divergent or convergent practices;b. planning for learning to identify students’ starting points,c. exemplifying success to students up front;d. using appropriate questioning approaches to allow sufficient evidence to be gathered, from which inferences can be made in order to tune the teaching;e. responding to students in lessons e.g. through purposeful re-grouping;
- Evaluating together how effective the different classroom approaches we have seen are in supporting learning, such as divergent as opposed to convergent approaches;
- Employing the self-assessment grids to reflect on each others’ practice;
- Interviewing your students and analysing together your students’ responses;
- Peer observing and coaching each other.
