This section of the site provides access to examples of work created by teachers and consultants who have used the programme. They demonstrate effective use of particular aspects from the programme’s ideas and materials. Although they may be immediately useful to teachers wanting resources for the classroom, their main function is to demonstrate how a point of pedagogy can be translated into action.
There are separate sections, as follows.
These demonstrate planning for a variety of purposes: closed, guided and open learning; learning at different stages of progression; learning objectives being applied to specific lessons, etc.
These demonstrate how teachers have used and developed different teaching strategies in their lessons: use of Bloom’s taxonomy, creative teaching and learning ideas, modelling, etc.
These demonstrate the outcomes of pupils’ work after they have been taught using a particular idea from the programme: closed, guided or open learning; an emphasis on contextual learning, etc.
These demonstrate teachers and pupils talking about the impact of exploring a particular aspect of learning: freedoms and constraints, 'odd one out' strategy, etc.
These are designed to help teachers work through the thinking that leads to effective practice. The layout of any particular file is not that important, but each one will enable teachers working on an aspect of the programme to develop effective practice. There are templates for medium-term and long-term plans, using musicians in the classroom, etc.
