Everyone's talking about “Shanghai-style teaching for mastery”
But what is it? What is it not? What are the core principles and the characteristic practice of Chinese maths teachers? What is Variation Theory and Intelligent Practice? Is how maths is taught in East Asia at all relevant to classrooms in London, given the very many points of difference between our two societies? What does teaching secondary maths for mastery look like - and what does Ofsted say when they see it?
Join us on 28th September to start to answer these questions.
There will be:
- an overview of teaching for mastery, with examples from UK as well as Shanghai lessons
- an in-depth analysis of the lesson design of a Y7 lesson that exemplifies teaching for mastery
- the opportunity for you to observe this lesson being taught by a UKtrained teacher
- a Shanghai-style Teacher Research Group discussion after the lesson
- information about the further professional development opportunities we’re offering in 2016-17
