CPP1 Workshops

Overview:

Workshops for the Curriculum, Pedagogy and Practice units, draw connections from lectures and tutorials to specialised discipline areas. Prior to workshops, students will have attended a number of lectures and tutorials outlining content knowledge. The workshops are an opportunity for students to contextualise this content knowledge and challenge it through the lens of their discipline.Curriculum, Pedagogy and Practice 1 workshops aim to consider the elements of valuable planning to engage with student learning, considering the needs of their discipline and requirements of teacher standards. Thinking about the role of student engagement in relation to planning, and understanding various implications to create, facilitate and evaluate useful planning.

Workshop Two: Learning requirements 15th March
What do students need in order to achieve in my discipline?
How do I address the requirements?
  • What do we as teachers need to know in order to plan?
  • Outcomes, and planning for outcomes. Curriculum document, how to plan for outcomes, units of work etc. Cross-curriculum requirements
  • Assessment 2a: Lesson Plan Two - go over the assessment (attached document- same as last week).

Students would have been oriented to the curriculum documents last workshop, with direct relation to the rationale of the document. Most would have had at least 1/2 a go at lesson planning.1. This workshop is refining the use of outcomes in determining the learning sequence (i.e. how do the activities reflect the outcomes). 2. Furthermore, the layer of cross-curriculum perspectives/priorities and addressing these explicitly in planning. Resources- curriculum documents, lesson planning template/s, examples of lessons you have facilitated as examples to discuss points 1 & 2.

Can't make workshop 2?

Firstly make sure you have told Raegina and had the absence verified, these are important practical articulations of what we cover in general. Missing them is not ideal.

Work in Lieu;
  1. Continue with / begin the work in Lieu for workshop 1 (below). This covers the same content, however you don't have the assistance to the tutor and their KLA knowledge.
  2. Grab your relevant syllabus or National Curriculum document. Have a look at the cross curriculum requirements for each. Write down in simple terms the cross curriculum material you MUST include in your teaching.
  3. Include this in your second lesson plan as appropriate.
  4. Writing a lesson plan for your subject using 1-3 from above. Keep your lesson plan. You will need to upload this, and the plans from the next two workshops, onto moodle by 5pm 6th April, 2012.
  5. Then next week catch up with someone from your KLA and compare notes.

Resources for D&T students


--------------------------------------------------------------------------Workshop One: Engaging students 1st March
What elements engage student learning?
How can I, as a teacher facilitate student learning?
  • What is it about the discipline that students enjoy (pedagogy, content, environment)? How do they know they enjoy this (what is it that makes this discipline a unique experience)?
  • Discussing the reasons for planning- rationales for the various syllus and their intents
  • Orienting students to why we plan, and that these experiences are not just by ‘accident’
  • What resources are available?
  • Assessment 2a: Lesson Plan One

Work in Lieu;
  1. Make sure you have completed the activities in relation to your syllabus document from week 3 of CPP1. In teh workshop students will be discussing this and their interpretations - I'd suggest you chat with a classmate about them when you can.
  2. Make sure you have read the 'planning for teachers' outline in the tutorial handout from this weeks CPP1 page & on moodle.
  3. Over on Moodle (due to copyright) there are two excerpts from the recommended 'other' texts on lesson planning. Go through these as they'll help you work towards...
