Cooperative learning - because we is more than me
My most popular course, and the one that made the Regional Schools Commisioner promote Cooperative Learning. It presents a number of instantly applicable and engaging CLIPs (Cooperative Learning Interaction Patterns ?) tweaked to improve results, accelerate progress and close achievement gaps.
By the end of the basic 6-hour course, participating teachers will be able to support their teaching with group and pair work to activate prior knowledge, and promote creative writing, intensive reading and drill procedures (e.g. maths and SPaG) and retention of necessary key rules and facts - while fully integrating higher level thinking.

Skills & Mastery course was originally developed in 2014.
