Limited Capacity seats available

Let’s Think in English (LTE) is a teaching programme created since 2009 to help young people develop the reasoning skills needed for success in English. LTE is based on 30 years’ research at King’s College London which shows that structured development of pupils’ cognitive skills raises their attainment. 

LTE draws on research by Piaget and Vygotsky that young people learn best when exploring ideas together. However, research suggest pupils need explicit training to work effectively in groups and develop exploratory talk. This workshop will review the research behind group work and dialogic talk, illustrate with examples from classrooms and consider how LTE lessons support development. . The workshop will be interactive with participants sampling LTE lessons.

Audience: Interest in teaching and learning, dialogic teaching, and group work. While lessons explored use text as a stimuli the pedagogy is applicable to many subject areas and ages.
