Event Details

Who: The course is designed for all teachers in all phases and sectors of education who would welcome developing a dialogic metacognitive approach to their teaching.

Course Dates and Venue: The course will take place across three afternoons between 2.30 – 5.30 pm on 3rd March, 31st March and 28th April at Seabridge Primary School.

Cost: The cost for the three sessions is £110. Refreshments are included.

Our thinking ability is what makes us distinctively human. Yet we have no generally accepted approach to teaching thinking – and no common vocabulary to describe different ways of thinking.

This, when you think about it, is extraordinary. Imagine trying to teach or learn maths if we did not have commonly accepted terms such as add, subtract, multiply and divide.

Thinking Moves A – Z provides a vocabulary for thinking. The moves themselves are not new – we all use them in our learning and our life every day. But now we have a way of talking about how we think, and that gives us a means to work on improving the effectiveness of our thinking.

Our Three Part Thinking Moves A-Z training will:

o Introduce you to the Thinking Moves A – Z;

o Show you how to enrich inquiry based learning programmes, such as Philosophy for Children, by incorporating Thinking Moves;

o Show you how to build Thinking Moves into the main curriculum;

o Give you practical guidance on how to embed Thinking Moves in your school’s overall approach to teaching and learning.
