4. how will you know when you are achieving your aims co dev toolkit activity bl.03 Document Transcript

  • 1. HOW will you know when you are achieving your aims? I VIT CT A Y 3 Involving your learners The people who can really tell you whether your curriculum is working are the learners who experience it. How well does your school listen to learners? What opportunities are there for learners to share their opinions and views with staff and governors? Has the opinion of learners ever actually made a difference to the curriculum in your school? TALKING POINT: How do your learners influence the curriculum? With your colleagues, discuss the different ways in which your learners can influence their curriculum experience by expressing views and opinions. For example: • Which methods of collecting the views of learners are most effective? • Are they all well used? © Qualifications and Curriculum Authority
  • 2. PRACTICAL ACTION: Creating new communication channels Talk with colleagues and learners about new ways that you could make sure young people in your school have a say and influence the curriculum. Sketch out each idea to show how it would work in practice. For example: Try to put some of these new channels of communication into place and make sure that you use them to find out what learners really think of the curriculum your school offers. PRACTICAL ACTION: Starter questions SO UR C RE E Use the questions listed on resource C • R E • SO R E C as a starting point for finding out what U learners really think about the curriculum they experience. Try to talk to a small group of learners at a time, perhaps focusing on particular groups such as the more able, girls or those with English as an additional language. PRACTICAL ACTION: Developing learners’ research skills To help your learners gather their own and their peers’ opinions on the curriculum and then represent them clearly and accurately, consider training some of your learners – for example school council members or lead students – as researchers. This will help to improve the quality of the information that they feed back to you.
