How to do intervention well


Kids can actually catch up, but it requires some thinking. In this workshop, teachers will identify costs, benefits and ways forward for the variety of intervention strategies most often used in primary schools. Tierney will also present brand new and highly practical research that show students from years 3-6 growing more than 12 months more than department expectations for every year of teaching across multiple schools. More specifically, this research shows what to do when students display misconceptions during challenging tasks. It shows how to use questioning to get kids to change their own minds and abandon their misconceptions, as well as how to grow new understanding in a way that sticks (effect size of 0.7 above DECD expectations for PAT M each year).
