10 Key Stage 3 National Strategy Leading Teachers Developing the leading teacher role Questions to consider: How can we support colleagues in the implementation of their chosen areas for development when back in school? What recent strategy developments can we incorporate into our teaching to encourage more visits in the future? 1.8

11 Key Stage 3 National Strategy Leading Teachers Real scenarios (to add to the LT handbook) Discuss the scenario that you have been given and suggest effective strategies that would overcome these potential barriers to a successful demonstration lesson. 1.9

12 Key Stage 3 National Strategy Leading Teachers Key Stage 3 National Strategy Literacy and Learning Beth Brooke

13 Key Stage 3 National Strategy Leading Teachers Pupils learn in subjects through: talk, text and writing Pupils improve literacy skills by applying them in subjects Literacy objectives included into subject teaching Better subject learning – better literacy Literacy and learning Developing literacy and learning together

14 Key Stage 3 National Strategy Leading Teachers The impact of literacy on achievement in subjects  71% of pupils who achieve Level 5 or above in English at the end of key stage 3 achieve five or more GCSEs at grade C or above.  Only 10% of pupils who achieve below level 5 in English at the end of key stage 3 gain five or more GCSEs at the higher grades. Based on 2003 data

15 Key Stage 3 National Strategy Leading Teachers A level 5 pupil can: describe explain discuss evaluate and assess analyse comment and compare select relevant information from a range of sources record observations systematically use appropriate language and conventions to communicate and use words precisely convey meaning clearly in a range of forms for different readers present information in different forms and styles for specific purposes and audiences. produce structured work organise writing into paragraphs

16 Key Stage 3 National Strategy Leading Teachers Literacy across the curriculum  Literacy across the curriculum training folder 2001  Whole school training day 2001  Literacy in subjects LEA training  Support material for literacy co-ordinators  Literacy across the curriculum key messages 2003  Literacy in subjects for school based use and self-study 2004  Pedagogy and Practice Booklets (Self-study support booklets) 2004

17 Key Stage 3 National Strategy Leading Teachers The framework of cross-curricular objectives: talk Key aspect of the framework Three strands of learning through talk

18 Key Stage 3 National Strategy Leading Teachers Key objectives for talk Learning through talk Using talk to clarify and present ideas Yr. 7. Use talk as a tool for clarifying ideas Yr.8.

21 Key Stage 3 National Strategy Leading Teachers The framework of cross-curricular objectives: writing Key aspect of the framework Three strands of learning through writing

22 Key Stage 3 National Strategy Leading Teachers Key objectives for writing Learning through writing Using writing as a tool for thought Yr.7. Use writing to explore and develop ideas. Yr.8.

Yr.9. Write with differing degrees of formality, relating vocabulary and grammar to context.

23 Key Stage 3 National Strategy Leading Teachers Current literacy practice Look at the features of effective literacy practice. Consider either your own practice or your own school and, for each feature, decide whether it is well-established, patchy or not established. Colleagues from the same school might wish to work together. Share your conclusions with a colleague from another school. Is there a pattern to implementation? If so, how would you account for this?

25 Key Stage 3 National Strategy Leading Teachers Investigating the resources Work in subject groups and review the literacy and learning in materials for your subject for: – Their usefulness to you and your own practice – Their usefulness to other subject colleagues – Any potential difficulties regarding their use

26 Key Stage 3 National Strategy Leading Teachers Literacy and leading teachers Include an aspect of the three elements of literacy and learning as part of the focus for your demonstration lessons. Use the prompts for subject leaders either to narrow down the focus even further e.g. ‘the lesson will include steps from the teaching sequence for writing’ or to inform part of the post-lesson discussion.

27 Key Stage 3 National Strategy Leading Teachers Next steps What are you doing already? What would you like to develop?

28 Key Stage 3 National Strategy Leading Teachers Key Stage 3 National Strategy Assessment for Learning - Updates Paul Rowe AfL Lead Consultant

29 Key Stage 3 National Strategy Leading Teachers Objectives To provide a brief overview of the current status of the Assessment for Learning in Key Stage 3 To summarise emerging patterns of development based on subject reviews and pupil interview findings within Dorset

30 Key Stage 3 National Strategy Leading Teachers Definition of assessment for learning ‘Assessment for learning is the process of seeking and interpreting evidence for use by learners and their teachers to decide where the learners are in their learning, where they need to go and how best to get there’ Assessment Reform Group, 2002

31 Key Stage 3 National Strategy Leading Teachers Assessment for Learning folder training units Guidance for Senior Leaders (on ‘whole school’ development of AfL) Unit 1 Assessment for Learning in Everyday Lessons Unit 2 The Formative Use of Summative Assessments Unit 3 Objective Led Lessons Unit 4 Oral & Written Feedback Unit 5 Peer & Self Assessment Subject development (development work to be led by subject leaders) Unit 6 Curricular Target Setting

32 Key Stage 3 National Strategy Leading Teachers Assessment for Learning WSS – timeline of events… May 2004 – Launch of KS3 materials to all secondary schools Autumn term (For schools receiving consultant support) - information gathering and subject auditing to identify AfL priorities Autumn term (For schools receiving consultant support) – whole staff inset to launch AfL Autumn term – All strategy managers issued with AfL subject materials Autumn and Spring term (For schools receiving consultant support) – trialling of particular AfL strategies in departments or within teaching and learning groups April release of two additional training units on using questioning to promote AfL and how coaching can promote a consistent approach to AfL within schools By June 2005 (For schools receiving consultant support) – review of impact of year 1 actions and identification of priorities for year 2

33 Key Stage 3 National Strategy Leading Teachers Common patterns of development – Subject Audits Increasing confidence amongst subject leaders that objectives are providing a shared purpose to lessons. Less confidence that pupils can articulate their learning at the end of a lesson. (Pupils are provided with the purpose of the learning but are less likely to appreciate what they need to do to demonstrate success.) General feeling that feedback provided by teachers is frequent and purposeful. Less confidence that pupils are provided with opportunities to meaningfully reflect and respond to the feedback provided. Pockets of good practice using peer and self assessment still yet to be extended whole school.

34 Key Stage 3 National Strategy Leading Teachers Common patterns of development - Pupil interview findings Pupils genuinely appreciate the sharing of objectives particularly where there is a consistent whole school approach to sharing them verbally and visually. When asked to talk about the progress they might make in a lesson pupils typically identify success in terms of ‘getting all the work done…’ Pupils have expressed concern that opportunities are not provided to make use of formative feedback. When they are given the opportunity pupils find well planned peer and self assessment both enjoyable and useful. In surveys no pupils have been critical of this AfL strategy.

35 Key Stage 3 National Strategy Leading Teachers Changing practice Compare the two script extracts. Identify what actions the teacher has taken between September and April that has allowed aspects of AfL to become an embedded part of their practice.

36 Key Stage 3 National Strategy Leading Teachers AfL and personalised learningAfL Effective Teaching and Learning Curriculum enrichment and choice Organising the School for Personalised Learning Beyond the classroom Personalised Learning – the inner core Personalising the school experience

37 Key Stage 3 National Strategy Leading Teachers AfL WSS – key issues to address in 2005 Reaching a common understanding of how AfL fits into Personalised Learning. Reaching a common understanding of how AfL fits into Personalised Learning. In schools: Promoting the use of the subject specific materials as a means of embedding AfL strategies.

Rolling out AfL work piloted in KS3 into KS4 and KS5 Rolling out AfL work piloted in KS3 into KS4 and KS5 “The development of AfL in schools will require a sustained, long-term commitment” Sue Hackman

38 Key Stage 3 National Strategy Leading Teachers Key Stage 3 National Strategy Behaviour and Attendance – creating a climate for learning

39 Key Stage 3 National Strategy Leading Teachers Mr. Johnson

40 Key Stage 3 National Strategy Leading Teachers Objectives To consider how behaviour strategies help in establishing a climate for learning To reflect on your current practice and identify effective behaviour strategies worthy of demonstration

41 Key Stage 3 National Strategy Leading Teachers Behaviour and attendance “Behaviour can be an area where we expect so much and teach so little” Galvin, Miller, Nash 1999

42 Key Stage 3 National Strategy Leading Teachers Your classroom routines Consider the classroom routines that you adopt and discuss the following: 1.What happens at the very start of your lessons? 2.How quickly are the pupils on task? 3.How do you ensure that there is a smooth transition from one part of the lesson to the next? 4.How do you organise the distribution of resources and materials? 5.How do you ensure enough time is left for an effective plenary? 6.How are pupils dismissed from your lesson?

43 Key Stage 3 National Strategy Leading Teachers Effective classroom routines The teacher meets the pupils at the start of every lesson. The lesson begins promptly. Pupils are given timings for various elements or tasks to ensure an effective pace to the lesson. Enough time is left at the end of the lesson for an effective and reflective plenary. Pupils understand the importance of this to their learning. The teacher controls how the pupils leave the lesson, so that departure is orderly.

44 Key Stage 3 National Strategy Leading Teachers Beginnings and endings “Students learn more at the beginning and the end of a learning experience than they do in the middle.” “The beginning, in particular, is the time when the potential for learning is at its greatest, when the relatively high concentration, but particularly anticipation, makes the learner more receptive” Mike Hughes – Closing the Learning Gap

45 Key Stage 3 National Strategy Leading Teachers Beginnings – effective strategies to demonstrate for observers Be at the door to meet and greet the pupils as they arrive. Be welcoming and positive. Engage the class in the first minute with something about today’s lesson, or something positive and memorable from the last one. Alternatively, use a stimulating starter activity. Have the lesson objectives written on the board and clearly and quickly identify the expected learning outcomes using language with which the pupils can easily engage. Get straight into the lesson, leaving the register and collecting of homework until later.

46 Key Stage 3 National Strategy Leading Teachers Endings – effective strategies to demonstrate for observers End early. Don’t try to cover too much and leave at least 10 minutes to finish the lesson properly. Use the last part of the lesson for an effective plenary. Remind pupils of the context for the lesson in terms of what went before and what is to come. Set the scene for the following lesson. Have clear routines for an organised departure and have some way of saying goodbye and thanking the pupils for a good lesson.

47 Key Stage 3 National Strategy Leading Teachers Objectives To consider how behaviour strategies help in establishing a climate for learning To reflect on your current practice and identify effective behaviour strategies worthy of demonstration
