Event description

Description

Critical thinking and problem solving have been identified as key skills which support pupils’ learning, raise attainment and strengthen their development as informed and thoughtful future citizens. They add value to the National Curriculum, GCSE and A level courses including by developing critical enquiry and analysis skills, and understanding contemporary issues. This training is part of the British Council’s new worldwide Connecting Classrooms programme. It will be led by experts from the Geographical Association and SSAT and will enable you to:

  • develop strategies for critical thinking and problem solving
  • develop and apply practice with a network of like-minded teachers
  • enhance your curriculum to help prepare your pupils for 21st Century learning, citizenship and employment
  • use your learning to strengthen international links at your school.

The FREE training will consist of three face-to-face twilight sessions delivered by David Wylde between May and September, focused on developing new teaching and learning approaches to critical thinking, applying this in participants’ classrooms and then sharing practice within the group and the wider subject community. Whilst the programme has been developed via the Humanities, participants are welcome from all curriculum areas and strategies are designed to be adaptable and cross-curricular. Looking ahead, participants may take up the chance to experience education in a different context by working with teachers in a partner school overseas; supported by a £3000 British Council grant.

Please note that delegates should book onto all three dates.
