‘NO PASSENGERS PERMITTED’: ENGAGING ALL LEARNERS IN A PRIMARY CLASSROOM

Creating the ‘X Factor’ Through Students Doing the Work Themselves
About this course

Would you like to create a dynamic, active learning environment where all students are both engaged and extended?

Do you want to develop resilient students who work equally well independently or collaboratively?

Has an inspection team ever commented that the teachers, rather than your students, are doing most of the work in lessons?

The lessons that have that ‘X Factor’ are ones in which the students are not passive classroom passengers but are active learners, motivated to work independently or collaboratively and extend themselves as far as they can. This course shows you how this can be achieved.

Course Outcomes:
  • Explore how to prevent your students from becoming ‘passengers’ in lessons
  • Help you set up lessons where the students work a lot harder than they have done before
  • Practical, down-to-earth advice, tips and teaching techniques that have been proven to work
  • Show ways in which resources and techniques can be used to nurture a student’s confidence
