As teachers we are asked to use open and challenging tasks, be more of a facilitator of learning, to promote productive struggle and encourage students to make connections and reach understandings for themselves. This is a major shift for lots of teachers and prompts many questions.
“How does explicit teaching and practice of skills and strategies fit alongside challenging tasks?”
“How much information and support should I be providing students?”
“What about teacher focus groups and modelling?”
“How do I get a good balance between struggle and challenge and explicit teaching and practice?”
All these questions will be explored in this session to support teachers in developing a better understanding of how we can better balance supporting students while still giving students the chance to deepen their own understandings and make connections for themselves.
