Presented by Orlene Badu
Delve into the meaning of unconscious bias and how if affects our own lives and society; Reflect on what this means for your school context and plan next steps.
Through engaging with the sessions, we aim to provide schools with research, data and resources to discuss the breadth of themes among your staff and begin action planning. We recognise that in the current context your school community may have expectations of your school to have meaningful conversations which lead to equally meaningful changes. We aim to build the confidence of staff to address tangible issues, providing impact in the classroom which include:
1. The impact of the curriculum on children and young people
2. An understanding of school expectations on assessment and outcomes

Course outline and purpose:
In the first session we will look at the approaches and developments in the maths curriculum within Singapore and how since the 1980s their children have outperformed children across the world in PISA and TiMMs assessments. We will follow the CPA approach to teaching and learning and look at progression within bar modelling. The session will end with a small gap task.
The second session will enable participants to reflect on their learning and gap task, develop their understanding even further, and begin to develop a whole school policy that will help this approach become embedded back at their educational establishment.
