Effective Assessment for Learning (3 part course):  PLTA
 

Delivered by Andy Hawes of PLTA

SESSION 1 - The power of the learning objective:
Learning objectives are far more than just ‘something you include to tick a box’ in your teaching. If used well, they help you to plan learning effectively, to enable learners to fully understand and engage with what they are learning and to evaluate how well they are succeeding with that learning. This practical and interactive session explores the real rationale and purpose of learning objectives and success-criteria and enables all delegates to be fully confident in all areas of their use in the classroom. It also dispels some common myths.

SESSION 2 - The Power of Questioning and Interactive Classroom Learning:
Questioning takes up a large proportion of a teacher’s classroom time. This highly interactive session explores the theory and practice of questioning and ways of enabling effective pupil response. It also explores a range of alternatives to questions and ways of enabling and encouraging pupils to ask questions themselves.

Spelling & Grammar:  Developing English Teaching (2 part course):  PLTA
Dates TBC
 

Delivered by Andy Hawes of PLTA

SESSION
Building grammar teaching into English units and Teaching Spelling – Going beyond phonics and word lists

This two-part highly interactive session explores ways of building grammar teaching into English units so that it is taught in context rather than as a ‘bolt-on’. This is far more effective as pupils develop deeper understanding and apply the grammar more effectively into their own writing. The second part of the session explores some strategies for using knowledge of word families and word modification (prefixes, suffixes, etc) as a key element of the specific and explicit teaching of spelling.
