This course is part of a series of courses using evidence-based research to develop, and embed, 'great' teaching and learning. In this course we will:

Explore the meaning, and implications, of responsive and adaptive teaching
Consider appropriate pitch and expectations whilst maintaining high expectations for all
Consider the importance of formative assessment and how this informs planning for learning and re-shaping of lessons
Consider the challenges of teaching to age-related expectations in a mainstream classroom where there is a wide range of learning needs due to SEND/gaps in learning
Explore practical ideas and strategies to make learning accessible for the children working below age-related expectations and to provide challenge for those children who are ready for further depth and breadth in learning

This course is a brand new addition to the suite of Great Teaching courses. Increasingly, teachers are faced with a wide, and often complex, range of learning needs within a mainstream classoom. This course will address the challenges this brings, drawing on research and key elements of cognitive science such as building lasting schemata, managing cognitive load and Rosenshine's Principles of Instruction. Delegates will consider how to adapt teaching in a responsive way, taking into account the needs of their own classes. It will suggest a range of practical ideas and strategies for making planning and provision manageble, meaningful and motivating for teachers and children alike.
