We are very excited to be working with the Geographical Association on their TLIF project looking at critical thinking in geography.

This is a fully funded initiative and gives participating schools a free resource pack (worth £60), 2 days of CPD (this is held at The Hollins on 1/5/19 and 10/7/19).  It also gives access to further online resources and support.

IMPROVE TEACHER CAPABILITY BY

– building confidence in curriculum

– planning and critical approaches

– increasing subject knowledge around data, scientific and geographical concepts and language

– supporting effective teaching of reformed geography and science qualifications and curricula

– assisting efficient planning through use of practical tools and quality-assured curriculum plans and resources.

RAISE ATTAINMENT SO PUPILS

• gain the geographical and scientific knowledge and skills needed for success in exams and further study

• tackle complex issues more independently and construct evidenced arguments through social and natural scientific investigation

• make adept use of data, use evidence critically

• have appropriate challenge to increase engagement with geography and science and generate interest in further study.

THE BENEFITS OF TEACHING THIS WAY WERE:

• It increased students’ willingness to participate

• It developed confidence in students expressing their own opinions

• It supported students in accessing higher level skills such as justification and evaluation

• It helped create a culture where students independently attempted to solve problems in their fieldwork

Schools are eligible to take part if their current ofsted rating is 3 or 4 or are in DFE category 5 and 6 priority areas
