Structuring Your Class – Engaging All with Cooperative Learning
- This course is designed for all classroom practitioners, Primary and Secondary (from KS1 to KS4), who want to learn strategies that will engage all pupils in cooperative learning tasks, in order to ensure progress for all pupils.
- To understand the key differences between group work and cooperative learning.
- To learn new strategies that will enable teachers to ensure effective participation of all pupils at all times.
Overview of the Training:
Michelle will offer structures to all delegates that can be taken back to the classroom for implementing the very next day; so that pupils can learn how to teach each other, with the teacher as a facilitator of learning.
Teachers will learn at least 5 new ways of delivering information that is not "Chalk and talk", underpinned by the premise that every child will be fully differentiated for and every child will be involved.
Delegates will leave the course with the resources and video tutorials that they need to support them back in the classroom.
