The Learning Rainforest - Tom Sherrington

In a twilight session, Tom Sherrington will outline the concepts from his popular book The Learning Rainforest. This will include:

  • Establishing the Conditions: What makes a great curriculum? What does the research say?
  • Building the Knowledge Structure: Principles of effective instruction, theory and practice
  • Exploring the Possibilities: How do we deliver stretch and challenge? Mode A vs Mode B teaching

Two sessions are being offered and will be hosted at Philips High School, Higher Lane, Whitefield, M45 7PH.

There are limited places available with no more than one staff member (we recommend a member of SLT) from each BSLC member school.
