The facilitators were well informed and delivered the content to staff with a range of experiences without being patronising or leaving anyone behind…(through) interesting, relevant questions and challenges.
The January session will be an opportunity to explore the work of Professor Becky Francis and her team at UCL Institute of Education on grouping, setting and streaming. Her work explores the impact of grouping pupils by ability in terms of attitudes and attainment, especially on the lowest achievers and pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds. It also looks at the best ways of managing grouping and maximising learning.
This programme is aimed at all school staff interested in finding out more about research.
This series of twilights explores recent research into what works to support pupils’ learning and development, both in the classroom and beyond. In each session, a recent piece of research will be explored and its implications for classroom practice explored with participating teachers.
All participating teachers will receive a ‘take-away’ pack of materials and resources from each session, so that they can use the very same session in their own school with groups of colleagues.
The programme is led by members of the alliance Research Working Group.
The programme is free to attend. Participants can sign up for the next session by completing this form.
