Developing and sharing practice

Each of the resources is designed to engage and challenge learners through active learning approaches. Each one includes reflection sheets that enable teachers both to build and develop their skills in managing these approaches, and to embed literacy, language and numeracy. They are intended for teachers to use independently or with Subject Learning Coaches (SLCs) in managed continuing professional development (CPD) or coaching sessions.

Guidance notes for each activity can be found in this resource. They include:

  • background notes covering the topics in this theme
  • pedagogy guidance
  • suggestions for running the activities in this theme
  • associated handouts
  • reflection notes for CPD.

You will also find activity-specific guidance notes on each activity page.
