'Teaching Backwards', which has consistently been a best-selling teaching book since its launch in November 2014, asks teachers to plan backwards from the desired outcome they are hoping to achieve.  At the heart of this is two themes; the importance of shared clarity and the danger of teacher assumptions.  These two themes run throughout the planning and teaching process.

Drawing upon the learning from 'Teaching Backwards', the day will focus on unpicking, analysing and then most importantly providing time for teachers to apply the thinking steps to planning for progression through a module of learning or topic rather than the one-off lesson.  Throughout the day we will look at the 6 key elements of 'Teaching Backwards' and those attending will leave with a plethora of ideas and strategies to take straight back to school surrounding these.  The 6 elements are as follows:

  • High expectations
  • Starting points
  • Defining and demystifying destinations
  • Looking for proof of learning
  • Challenge
  • Feedback

This course would be ideal for those teachers who could attend, develop ideas and then disseminate the wonderful theory and practical strategies of 'Teaching Backwards' back in school.
Attendance on this course will enable schools to two extra places on the twilight session.  Please contact the teaching school to book these places.
