What does teaching and learning look like in a knowledge-rich primary lesson?, Inspiration Trust Curriculum Centre, Monday, 25. March 2019

About the course
A knowledge thorough pedagogy is an important accompaniment to a knowledge-rich curriculum. For teachers unused to emphasising knowledge acquisition lesson by lesson the knowledge-rich curriculum can require adjustments to accustomed practices. This course covers the notion of ‘high-leverage activities’ and how these can be used to ensure teaching time focuses squarely on the central goal of appropriate knowledge acquisition. The tutors will explain why a focus on knowledge acquisition is so crucial in primary education before giving highly practical guidelines for knowledge-rich primary lessons. 
Who should attend?
Primary teachers and leaders looking to understand how a knowledge-rich approach can benefit primary learning across the curriculum.
