5 Raising Your Game Whole-School Leadership of Teaching & Learning Ground Rules

6 Raising Your Game Whole-School Leadership of Teaching & Learning Old Joke

7 Raising Your Game Whole-School Leadership of Teaching & Learning Q:What’s the collective noun for a group of headteachers? A:A ‘lack’ of principals

8 Raising Your Game Whole-School Leadership of Teaching & Learning A:A ‘lack’ of principles

9 Raising Your Game Whole-School Leadership of Teaching & Learning "If you do what you've always done, you'll get what you've always got" Bill Clinton US President,

10 Raising Your Game Whole-School Leadership of Teaching & Learning “Those who stand for nothing fall for anything” Alexander Hamilton Founding Father,

11 Raising Your Game Whole-School Leadership of Teaching & Learning WHAT we teach HOW we teach it

12 Raising Your Game Whole-School Leadership of Teaching & Learning Ice-Breakers 3

13 Raising Your Game Whole-School Leadership of Teaching & Learning 3

14 Raising Your Game Whole-School Leadership of Teaching & Learning 1 1.What is your current curriculum like? What is it for? 2.Does any of it serve the school more than it serves your students (eg EBac)? 3.What does it teach young people to know or be able to do beyond what is tested in exams? 4.Is vocational content for the disaffected? Will it be there after the recent cull of vocational courses 5.Is all that ‘learning to learn’ stuff a bit of a fad that serves the middle classes? 6.Is the quality of a student’s experience in a subject dependant on who their teacher is? The what and the how …

15 Raising Your Game Whole-School Leadership of Teaching & Learning 2 1.Are we angry enough that 50% or so of students leave school with C in English and Maths? What are we doing about it? 2.Does ‘more of the same’ actually make them get worse? 3.What more innovative approaches could we use? 4.Does early entry help or hinder learning? Who is it for? 5.Is the biggest problem in Maths, if you an insecure learner, your Maths teacher? The basics

16 Raising Your Game Whole-School Leadership of Teaching & Learning 3 1.What is it like to be AG&T in your school - celebratory, or a case of keeping your down? 2.Do they get more of the same, more depth, more breadth, more qualifications, more stress, more praise, more of the best teachers? 3.Does early entry serve the student’s rather than the school’s needs? 4.Does setting help students to progress? 5.With a blank piece of paper, what would you do for AG&T students? AG&T

17 Raising Your Game Whole-School Leadership of Teaching & Learning 1: Teaching & Learning against a Changing Landscape: Revised National Curriculum Revised Ofsted framework

18 Raising Your Game Whole-School Leadership of Teaching & Learning The National Curriculum Review Slimmed-down and oddly optional ‘Best that has been thought and said’ No pedagogy, no guidance International benchmarks Broadly academic Consolidation of basics … Easier said than done.

19 Raising Your Game Whole-School Leadership of Teaching & Learning The National Curriculum Review Know anything else?

20 Raising Your Game Whole-School Leadership of Teaching & Learning Ofsted Satisfactory is unsatisfactory Outstanding wasn’t always outstanding No-notice from September (SEF? lesson plans? data?) It’s about teaching and marking It’s about literacy (‘DCIL’) What does progress mean?

21 Raising Your Game Whole-School Leadership of Teaching & Learning Ofsted Look at documents

22 Raising Your Game Whole-School Leadership of Teaching & Learning Ofsted So … implications at your school? How to ensure consistently good and outstanding teaching: do teachers know what it is? Are there Ofsted games that have to be played? Implications for training and monitoring?

23 Raising Your Game Whole-School Leadership of Teaching & Learning Look at our ‘house style’

24 Raising Your Game Whole-School Leadership of Teaching & Learning How would you use a document like this?

25 Raising Your Game Whole-School Leadership of Teaching & Learning What are your curriculum ‘values’? What are the Ofsted implications for training and monitoring at your school? Thinking Time

26 Raising Your Game Whole-School Leadership of Teaching & Learning 2:Getting the basics right: Literacy & Numeracy Revisited

27 The Matthew Effect (Robert K Merton)

28

29 The rich shall get richer and the poor shall get poorer Matthew 13:12

30 “The word-rich get richer while the word-poor get poorer” in their reading skills (CASL)

31 “While good readers gain new skills very rapidly, and quickly move from learning to read to reading to learn, poor readers become increasingly frustrated with the act of reading, and try to avoid reading where possible” The Matthew Effect Daniel Rigney

32 “Students who begin with high verbal aptitudes find themselves in verbally enriched social environments and have a double advantage.” The Matthew Effect Daniel Rigney

33 “Good readers may choose friends who also read avidly while poor readers seek friends with whom they share other enjoyments” The Matthew Effect Daniel Rigney

34 Stricht’s Law: “reading ability in children cannot exceed their listening ability …” E.D. Hirsch The Schools We Need

35 “Spoken language forms a constraint, a ceiling not only on the ability to comprehend but also on the ability to write, beyond which literacy cannot progress” Myhill and Fisher

36 “The children who possess intellectual capital when they first arrive at school have the mental scaffolding and Velcro to catch hold of what is going on, and they can turn the new knowledge into still more Velcro to gain still more knowledge”. E.D. Hirsch The Schools We Need

37 Aged 7: Children in the top quartile have 7100 words; children in the lowest have around The main influence is parents. DfE Research Unit

38 Every teacher in English is a teacher of English George Sampson, 1922

39 The Matthew Effect: The rich will get richer & the poor will get poorer

41 1.Understand the significance of exploratory talk 2.Model good talk – eg connectives 3.Re-think questioning – ‘why & how’ – and hands-up 4.Vary groupings 5.Get conversations into the school culture

42 1: What type of talk characterises your classroom? How do you help students to talk like a scientist / historian / geographer..? 2: How do you ask questions? How do you receive answers? Do ‘why’ and ‘how’ questions happen other than by accident? Do the same students always answer? 3: How do groupings work in your classroom? Are they planned? Do the word-rich get richer? Is spoken vocabulary modelled?

43 1.Demonstrate writing 2.Teach composition & planning 3.Allow oral rehearsal 4.Short & long sentences 5.Connectives

44 Know your connectives Adding: and, also, as well as, moreover, too Cause & effect: because, so, therefore, thus, consequently Sequencing: next, then, first, finally, meanwhile, before, after Qualifying: however, although, unless, except, if, as long as, apart from, yet Emphasising: above all, in particular, especially, significantly, indeed, notably Illustrating: for example, such as, for instance, as revealed by, in the case of Comparing: equally, in the same way, similarly, likewise, as with, like Contrasting: whereas, instead of, alternatively, otherwise, unlike, on the other hand

45 1: What kinds of writing do students need to do in your subject? Where do they see the process as well as the product? When do they see you writing and reflecting aloud on your writing? 2: What are the 4 essential ingredients in a text required in your subject: a)personal/impersonal? b)formal/informal? c)layout features? d)key vocabulary? 2: What are the 4 essential ingredients in a text required in your subject: a)personal/impersonal? b)formal/informal? c)layout features? d)key vocabulary?

46 1.Demonstrate writing 2.Teach composition & planning 3.Allow oral rehearsal 4.Short & long sentences 5.Connectives

47 READING

48 1.Teach reading – scanning, skimming, analysis 2.Read aloud and display 3.Teach key vocabulary 4.Demystify spelling 5.Teach research, not FOFO

49 SKIMMING

50 The climate of the Earth is always changing. In the past it has altered as a result of natural causes. Nowadays, however, the term climate change is generally used when referring to changes in our climate which have been identified since the early part of the 1900's. The changes we've seen over recent years and those which are predicted over the next 80 years are thought to be mainly as a result of human behaviour rather than due to natural changes in the atmosphere.

51 The best treatment for mouth ulcers. Gargle with salt water. You should find that it works a treat. Salt is cheap and easy to get hold of and we all have it at home, so no need to splash out and spend lots of money on expensive mouth ulcer creams.

52 Urquhart castle is probably one of the most picturesquely situated castles in the Scottish Highlands. Located 16 miles south-west of Inverness, the castle, one of the largest in Scotland, overlooks much of Loch Ness. Visitors come to stroll through the ruins of the 13th- century castle because Urquhart has earned the reputation of being one of the best spots for sighting Loch Ness’s most famous inhabitant.

53 SCANNING

54 1.Where did the first cell phones begin? 2.Name 2 other features that started to be included in phones 3.Why are cell phones especially useful in some countries?

55 Cellular telephones The first cellular telephone system began operation in Tokyo in 1979, and the first U.S. system began operation in 1983 in Chicago. A camera phone is a cellular phone that also has picture taking capabilities. Some camera phones have the capability to send these photos to another cellular phone or computer. Advances in digital technology and microelectronics has led to the inclusion of unrelated applications in cellular telephones, such as alarm clocks, calculators, Internet browsers, and voice memos for recording short verbal reminders, while at the same time making such telephones vulnerable to certain software viruses. In many countries with inadequate wire-based telephone networks, cellular telephone systems have provided a means of more quickly establishing a national telecommunications network. Where begin? Two features? Some countries?

71 1.Teach reading – scanning, skimming, analysis 2.Read aloud and display 3.Teach key vocabulary 4.Demystify spelling 5.Teach research, not FOFO

72 1: What kinds of texts do students in your subject need to read? What are the barriers to understanding? How do you help them – eg with vocabulary? 2: What are the ‘power words’ in your subject? Where do students encounter them? Which are the troublesome spellings? How do you demystify them? 3: What’s your contribution to reading for pleasure? Do students see you reading and hear you talk about reading? Do you teach them research skills?

73

74 1.The issue is often language, not numbers: teacher questioning & thinking time are key … 2.… and ‘explaining’ 3.Use diagnostic questions 4.Use Maths coaches

75

76

77 1: Literacy matters, but maybe ‘literacy’ is the wrong term

78 2: Great teachers make the implicit explicit – and model it

79 3: Without us, the rich will get richer & the poor will get poorer
