Event description

Description

Refining teachers’ understanding of lesson design is a crucial element of developing teaching for mastery. Teachers in this Work Group will work together to plan exemplar lessons (drawing on new Mastery Professional Development materials produced by NCETM/Maths Hubs) and in so doing will improve lesson design across their school.

Schools that have made a significant commitment to teaching for mastery in their curriculum planning are invited to nominate two teachers for the Work Group. One of these should be in a middle or senior leadership role (ideally the Maths Lead) with experience and expertise in teaching for mastery. Schools that have previously been part of a teaching for mastery Work Group and are looking for ways to continue to develop their expertise in this area would be particularly suitable.

Approximately 1 day per term attending a local workshop to: share understanding of key elements of lesson design; become familiar with the Mastery Professional Development Materials: agree planning format; discuss and review progress; and evaluate the project. In between these meetings, schools will work in pairs to plan and deliver lessons, and then observe each other where possible, with a focus particularly on the small steps required in teaching for mastery. They would also collate evidence of working with the new materials.

We expect that, by the end of the Work Group:

  • Teachers will have a deep understanding of the elements of effective lesson design
  • Participant schools will create their own ‘planning for mastery document’ which articulates the expected journey for maths planning in their school.
  • Children from participant schools will feel more engaged with the subject and therefore make better progress

A selection of lesson plans, approved by the NCETM, will be published alongside the Mastery Professional Development Materials to demonstrate how the materials can be used to develop effective lesson plans.

Participants will be expected to attend all workshops. Each pair of colleagues from a school will work with a pair from another school to design, deliver, observe and evaluate lessons as well as discussing progress and actions with the Work Group Lead. Participants will be expected to offer their feedback on the Mastery Professional Development Materials as well as the lessons that they collaboratively design.

Schools will be expected to release two participants for the days required and to support them in providing time for collaborative work with the in-school and partner school colleagues. It is expected that participating schools will be committed to embedding teaching for mastery in their curriculum and will be able to benefit from the participation of their teachers in this Work Group.
