Who?

This year we invite a cosy team of  teachers to embark on an action research adventure:

  • They get a lesson planning challenge from us.
  • They deep dive – reading and researching – to work out their recipes for success.
  • They float their ideas to the team for feedback.
  • They test their ideas in the classroom (reality check!).
  • They share their stories, ideas and conclusions with you during their sessions.
  • They answer your questions and you answer theirs (the power of conversation!).
