Description

About the course

The most powerful agents of academic improvement are the students themselves, and the quality of their revision for high stakes examinations can prove a decisive factor in exam success.

Class teachers need to shape and mediate subject content in a purposeful way so that pupils can use it effectively for revision.

This course explains how teachers can build, implement and monitor successful revision strategies for pupils to follow, based on key principles from the field of cognitive psychology, and includes practical examples that can be immediately applied.

Who should attend?

Senior management responsible for teaching and learning and all teachers preparing pupils for public examinations at secondary level.

The tutors

Steve Mastin is subject specialist leader for history at the Inspiration Trust. He has worked in the state sector for 17 years, beginning his career in an independent boarding school. As an experienced head of department, Steve produced his own textbooks to ensure a knowledge-rich curriculum was delivered throughout KS3, beginning with depth studies of ancient history in Year 7. He has written for various educational journals and an A-Level textbook, trained history teachers for the University of Cambridge, the Ministry of Education in Singapore and worked with new and experienced teachers in Kazakhstan for many years. Steve has also advised the Department of Education on the history curriculum in England and is a regular speaker at history conferences.

Dr Anthony Radice read literature at Manchester University, achieving first class honours, before going on to study for a master’s degree at Leeds, followed by a doctoral thesis on American poetry. While completing his thesis, he trained as a teacher through the forerunner to SCITT, the Graduate Teacher Programme. He has worked in a wide range of schools, both state and independent. As head of English at an independent school in London, he pioneered a rigorous, chronological approach to teaching English. Through his blog, ‘The Traditional Teacher’, he has made a strong case for the emancipatory power of a coherent, knowledge-rich curriculum delivered through high-quality didactic teaching. He firmly believes that it is through these means that all pupils, of every background, can achieve success.
