Conference – Getting It Right in the Classroom
Friday, November 4, 2022 @ 8:30 am - 4:00 pm
Developing Teaching Excellence – Mark Burns
Mark will introduce some research informed approaches to develop teaching excellence. Building upon more than a decade of proven track record in supporting teacher development, Mark will introduce ways to deepen dialogue, develop strategies to ensure feedback is impactful, and establish a shared language for teaching excellence.
The project will go on to support busy leaders to build impactful routines and habits in teams to develop the understanding about, and impact of, teaching over time. It will also unpick the common barriers that inhibit growth and provide strategies to overcome them.
Oracy – Emily Partridge and Plymouth Marjons University
Oracy is the ability to articulate ideas, develop understanding and engage with other through spoken language. Through oracy children develop and deepen their subject knowledge and understanding. Children learn to talk and learn through talk.
To launch the Oracy Project colleagues from Plymouth Marjons University will explore the research base behind the Alumnis Oracy Framework.
Behaving Together – Sarah Johnson
Sarah will launch the Behaviour Project by exploring the nature of emotional health and well-being and the real implications of this on the way children are seen to act within the school.
Working on the assumption that behaviour is our innate form of communication and working on ways to support rather than control. The project will go on to help build a reflective toolkit for teachers and those interested in the pastoral care of children.
