For Secondary Schools

Beginning to Understand Teaching for Mastery - Secondary

Beginning to Understand Teaching for Mastery is a programme which will prepare Secondary school teachers to understand the principles behind a mastery curriculum and how to plan and deliver lessons for depth and breadth of understanding in mathematics.

Participants will attend 4  sessions which will introduce and explore the 5 big ideas and principles behind Teaching for Mastery. They will see where Teaching for Mastery has come from and the strengths behind the approach. The sessions will consider different materials and resources created with Mastery in mind, which participants can then deliver in their own context, and evaluate their success. Participants will also work together collaboratively to create their own resources and also plan their own lessons using a mastery approach.

Participants will be encouraged to share what they have learnt with their department, in order to have impact on the practice of others.

Participant feedback:

"I feel much more confident around the mastery approach but more importantly how I can improve my practise around students understanding of number especially"

"I have gained an understanding of what mastery is and how beneficial it can be. Prior to this I was on the other side of the fence and have had my eyes well and truly opened to mastery"
