    Aboriginal idea
    Story Sharing: Teaching and learning through narrative.Learning Maps: Making learning pathways and processes explicit visually.Non-verbal: Kinaesthetic. Critical reflection. Least intrusive behaviour management.Symbols and Images: Exploring content through imagery. Using visual cues and signals.Land Links: Place-based pedagogy, linking content to local land and place.Non-linear: Lateral thinking, exploring new angles, comparing and synthesising different cultural viewpoints, innovating, adapting, working with cyclic processes. Holistic knowledge.Deconstruct/Reconstruct: Modelling and scaffolding, balancing teacher instruction and independent learning, working from wholes to parts.Community Links: Grounding class content and values in community knowledge. Community projects. Using or displaying classroom learning publicly for community benefit.
  • Which pathway would you prefer?
    Crazy paving is disjointed with no clear outcome
    The stepping stones present a coherent pathway with a clear goal and a possible branch
  • This came up when I Googled CAT Tests!
    But illustrates that guidance is needed to get on the correct pathway
    Baseline soft data collected from students on Self-esteem, MI’s, Attitudes to learning
  • Talk Through The CPHS Pathways
  • Educational Imaginaries
    This is a very simple activity that can easily be used with larger audiences and adapted in several ways –
    this is only one possible use. It aims to get people reflecting on their own values about education, and
    how it is changing, and also to consider how the institution as a whole might feel about the shift from
    20th to 21st century education. To use with groups other than teachers some care will be required in
    rewording the statements.
    Give each delegate a copy of the Educational Imaginaries sheet and allow them 10 minutes to complete
    it as per the instructions, marking their own position, and what they feel that of their peers might be.
    Optionally you could then ask pairs or small groups of delegates to explore their answers.
    A plenary might then allow you to pick a particular statement that would perhaps be a more contentious
    point in your school and invite opinions and discussion, either all together or in groups.
    A useful question to ask is for all delegates who have generally marked themselves more to the right
    (towards the 21st century imaginary) than they marked the institution as a whole to raise their hands.
    Perhaps unsurprisingly most delegates will feel themselves to be less conservative than the school
    as a whole.
  • Measurable decrease in “incidents”
    increased % students meeting their Minimum Target Grade and Challenging Target Grades
    Inclusion and community cohesion
