Description

About the course

A knowledge thorough pedagogy is an important accompaniment to a knowledge-rich curriculum. For teachers unused to emphasising knowledge acquisition lesson by lesson the knowledge-rich curriculum can require adjustments to accustomed practices. This course covers the notion of ‘high-leverage activities’ and how these can be used to ensure teaching time focuses squarely on the central goal of appropriate knowledge acquisition.

Who should attend?

This course is for secondary classroom teachers who wish to harness the power of a knowledge-rich curriculum through their teaching.
