Upcoming Events

Teach Well and Grattan Institute Webinar:

Sharing the load: How five schools do whole-school curriculum planning

 

Sharing the load: How five schools do whole-school curriculum planning

Wednesday, 14 August 2024, 3:30pm-4:30pm (AWST)

Registrations opening soon.

Governments have dramatically underestimated what it takes to plan high-quality lessons every day. Grattan’s survey of 2,243 teachers and school leaders shows that many teachers are planning alone, and buckling under the weight of this near-impossible task. But it needn’t be this way. Grattan visited five schools which have adopted whole-school planning approaches. Come along to hear how they did it, and how their students and teachers are benefitting.

This webinar will be co-hosted by Teach Well and Amy Haywood, the Deputy Program Director of Grattan’s Education Program. Before working at Grattan, Amy was a secondary school English teacher and brings this practical experience to her work as an education policy researcher. She has been the author on several Grattan reports including Ending the Lesson Lottery: How to improve curriculum planning in schools, How to implement a whole-school curriculum approach: A guide for principals, and The Reading Guarantee: How to give every child the best chance of success.

Using Elastik to Create Longer Cadence Reviews

Using Elastik to Create Longer Cadence Reviews 

Thursday 5 September 2024, 3:30pm-5pm (AWST)

Spacing grade-level retrieval practice and application helps students embed key ideas and can improve transfer to novel contexts. Longer Cadence Reviews are the perfect vehicle for this type of practice but creating such reviews can take time. Come along to learn how to utilise Elastik and your student data to make the most of your reviews.

No More Marking Webinar with Jeanette Breen

Event concluded

Comparative judgement is a process where judges compare two responses and decide which is better. Research has shown the process to be as reliable as double marking, but much quicker. In this webinar Jeanette Breen will provide an introduction to No More Marking and the use of comparative judgements to reduce teachers’ marking load. This includes a demonstration involving children’s writing. Jeanette will also be discussing the next No More Marking Australian project launching in February 2024 and answering questions about comparative judgement.

 

Promoting oral language in the early childhood classroom: A short presentation and Q&A session with Laura Glisson (Speech Pathologist) and Rosemary Simpson (former North East LDC Principal and Early Childhood Teacher)

Event concluded

Join us for an insightful presentation and engaging Q&A session with Laura Glisson and Rosemary Simpson on promoting oral language development in early childhood classrooms. Laura is a Certified Practising Speech Pathologist, the Language and Literacy Specialist at Teach Well, the Bulletin Editor for Learning Difficulties Australia and a member of the Language and Literacy in Young People Research Lab at Curtin University. Rosemary is an early childhood educator and behaviour specialist teacher, and was the Principal of North East Language Development Centre and Outreach Service for 20 years.

Together, they will share their expertise on effective oral language instruction in kindergarten and pre-primary classrooms to meet the needs of diverse groups of students, including those with language and communication difficulties.

“It has given me time to reflect on my own practice. As teachers it's easy to get stuck in the same routines because it's what you know best. This course has me thinking not just about good practice, but great practice.”

– Karen Bahmann, Teacher, St Clare’s College
