This is an opportunity to take part in an 9 month CPD programme with one of the the authors of ‘Making every lesson count’, Shaun Allison and other staff from Durrington High School, the school where the ideas behind the book evolved.
‘Making every lesson count’ looks at six evidence-informed principles of great teaching and discusses strategies that allow these principles to be put into action in the classroom. No gimmicks—just great teaching!
"The clarity, precision, deftness and authenticity of this book make it an essential addi-tion to any teacher's professional library"
David Didau, Author & Consultant
"This book is seriously good. Oh I wish I’d written it!"
John Tomsett, Headteacher
"This is a great book. I could have done with it at every stage of my career"
Mary Myatt, Adviser & Inspector
"Shaun Allison & Andy Tharby have produced a rare thing. A book on teaching and learning that is useful and accessible for pretty much every teacher"
Alex Quigley, Dire-tor of Research
Participants will all receive a copy of the book. They will then meet five times during the year to:
Discuss the research evidence behind each of the six principles;
Share some classroom strategies and how these could be implemented in their classroom;
Plan how these strategies will be implemented;
Discuss and review the effectiveness of these strategies.
This will then culminate in a conference, where participants will share their findings with their peers.
