Then come and spend the day with James, and together you will investigate strategies to promote and enhance challenges and inquiry.

Create optimum levels of challenge so that all students make excellent progress.

Key themes can include:

  • Recognising when challenge is needed and how to engage all students in more challenging tasks
  • Questioning techniques to ensure ALL students are challenged appropriately (including the most able)
  • Avoiding the type of praise and rewards systems that get in the way of challenge
  • Using challenge to develop resilience, higher – order thinking skills and a growth mindset. 

Create an emphasis on progress so that all students achieve excellent results.

Key themes can include:

  • How an emphasis on progress can lead to enhanced achievement for ALL students.
  • How research (e.g. Hattie’s Visible Learning and Dweck’s Mindset) can be used to identify activities that will have a high impact on student progress.
  • Why so many forms of praise and reward actually slow student progress – and what can be done to change this.
  • How feedback can be used to maximum effect to enhance student progress and achievement.
