Cognitive Development and Reading: Introduction to Let's Think in English (Research and Pedagogy)
Limited Capacity filling up

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. The lessons are based on structured challenge and include the development of understanding through discussion problem-solving and structured reflection.
Join Michael Walsh, co-developer of LTE, in this workshop, to explore the research and pedagogy that underpins the programme. The workshop will be interactive with participants sampling LTE lessons. 

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

We will start to talk about how to imagine a good education, what skills we want to develop in students, how can quality education and learning be assessed in this context and what is the purpose of educating. These are important starting points to thinking about what the future of learning means in the classroom.
