Why are children disengaged from learning? What do we mean by the performance gap? It is becoming a common occurrence within lessons for children (and sometimes teachers) to become disengaged with learning, ultimately affecting the overall learning performance both within the classroom and the school. As a result, high expectations and aspirations for learning are key to enhancing progress and performance.
Through a wide range of simple and practical teaching and learning strategies you can have an overwhelming effect on the way children learn and how they push themselves to new heights of achievement. Creating curiosity and wonder in the classroom is one of the essential ways we can close the performance gap. Intrigued?
