Curriculum and Teacher Capacity:

the two most important levers for improving education

WHY WE NEED TO RAISE ACHIEVEMENT

Higher levels of educational achievement are increasingly important for all students, in order to take greater control over their own lives, to participate effectively in society, and to find fulfilling work.

 

While the need to improve educational achievement has been recognised for many years, most of the reforms that have been proposed have been at best relatively ineffective, and in many cases, counter-productive. 

WHAT’S BEEN TRIED, WHY IT HASN’T WORKED, AND WHAT WE CAN DO INSTEAD

In this interactive workshop, participants will learn why it is that most attempts to increase educational achievement have failed, and what we can do instead.

 

When both the costs and the potential impacts on student achievement are examined, two particular changes appear to produce the greatest improvement for the least cost: a knowledge-rich curriculum and improving teacher capacity.

PRINCIPLED CURRICULUM AND IMPROVING TEACHER CAPACITY

Specifically, participants will learn why a knowledge-rich curriculum is essential to raising the achievement of all students, and to closing gaps in achievement and why investing in helping all teachers already working in our schools can produce unprecedented improvements in student achievement.

 

Participants will also learn about practical strategies for establishing, and sustaining, teacher learning communities that will support all teachers in improving their practice.
