© PMB 2007 The Model in Detail Strategies for Launching Reframe tasks as a challenge. Share the learning intentions and expectations. Connect the learning to previous learning/activities. Provide time for pupils to seek clarity. Model skills/capabilities
© PMB 2007 The Model in Detail Strategies for Activity Have pupils plan and organise work. Have pupils think-pair-share ideas and opinions. Use thinking frames as part of the activity or lesson. Use effective questions to further embed skills. Have pupils complete tasks in groups.
© PMB 2007 Strategies for Debriefing Conduct a well-planned plenary. Use a set of questions. Create a whole-class closing activity. Connect learning to other contexts. The Model in Detail
© PMB 2007 The Model and Activity 1 Learning Intentions: Be aware of how to plan for the development of skills and capabilities in lessons/activities The Launch: Working with Others and Problem-Solving were established as success criteria.

© PMB 2007 Tip 1 for Infusion When still in the early TS&PC implementation phase, be specific about the skills you want to introduce and develop.
© PMB 2007 I can think of different options I can come up with pros and cons for each I can compare and weigh-up options I can explain my choice This weeks TS&PC is about Making Decisions
© PMB 2007 Tip 2 for Infusion Revisit skills and capabilities in different and more complex contexts.
© PMB 2007 Tip 3 for Infusion Look at where in your existing practice/planning you can incorporate strategies to enhance TS&PC.

© PMB 2007 Summary Points Infusion is the blending of instruction in specific TS&PC into subject instruction. The focus on skills should be narrow and specific when starting out. We need to give pupils opportunities to demonstrate TS&PC (open-ended questions and tasks, thinking frames, etc.). Remember to always build in opportunities for observation and debriefing.
