Some years ago we instigated a series of classroom observations and discussions known as numeracy natters, literacy looks, formative chats…. to name but a few focus areas. Your feedback on what you would like to see more of in 2012, coupled with current literature suggests we need to re-ignite classroom visits with greater purpose. Brief of this trial: Groups of teachers work together to refine individual lessons, jointly planning, executing and then evaluating different instructional strategies for achieving a specific learning objective. This approach will enable teachers to share best practice, learn from each others strengths and weaknesses, and jointly develop and disseminate excellent practice.
