How can we avoid stretch and challenge being ‘bolt-ons’? How can they be integrated into the secondary school’s/college’s curriculum to provide ambitious learning for all students? How are learners being challenged and how have we established the appropriate pace of the lesson? This course will provide plenty of practical ideas that can be adapted for all subjects, and look at how we can create a culture of challenge and an ambitious curriculum for all learners.
This course will explore what we actually mean by stretch and challenge in a variety of different contexts, as well as providing you with practical ideas that have been seen to work in schools with a range of different learners. We will also be looking at ways of overcoming reluctance to try new things for fear of getting it wrong, by boosting the confidence of our learners to take risks.
