Event description

Description

In the last few years, it has become more and more popular to talk about the role of knowledge within schools. A number of schools, such as ELSS, now go as far to say they offer a 'knowledge-led' or 'knowledge-rich' curriculum. Yet there does not seem to be an exact consensus on what this means - many educators argue that knowledge has always been central to a school curriculum. In this day of debate and discussion, we will be considering what teaching knowledge in schools really means: from what knowledge we should be teaching to who we should be teaching it to and whether this carries implications for how we should be teaching.

Leading educators such as Professor Michael Young, Christine Counsell, Martin Robinson, Katie Ashford, Anthony O'Hear, Dennis Hayes and Michael Fordham will be joining us for a series of keynotes and panel debates on topics including:

'Can you teach a knowledge-led curriculum to all pupils, and, if so, should you?'

'Knowledge goes hand-in-hand with traditional pedagogy: true or false?'

'Grammar schools: are they a red herring for solving the knowledge problem?'

'Should curriculum be prescribed, or is there room for teacher autonomy?'

The day will run from 10am-4pm.
