Teaching for Mastery Lesson Design
Refining understanding of good lesson design, and being able to use resources well, is a crucial element in developing teaching for mastery. Teachers in this Work Group will work together to plan exemplar lessons (drawing on new Mastery Professional Development Materials produced by the NCETM and Maths Hubs, and other sources of mastery resources for the classroom including textbooks) and in so doing will improve lesson design across their school.
The project will also make use of the planning guidance created in previous projects to update and extend it, and it will be informed by the work of the ‘Planning opportunities for Greater Depth’ project in 2017/18 and 2018/19.
Participants should gain a deep understanding of the elements of effective lesson design and how the big ideas of mastery influence this, particularly regarding small steps of learning. They will be able to make good decisions about what to include or leave out, and when to supplement the materials with their own.
Teachers are expected to share their learning with others teaching maths in their school, and that this will influence the whole school’s maths lesson planning.
