BOOST KNOWLEDGE, GRADES AND
LEARNING DISPOSITIONS


Everyone knows what the Holy Grail of education is: schools and classrooms that help all students get the best grades they can AND build genuinely useful, transferable real-world capabilities and dispositions at the same time. We know that a key set of these attitudes and dispositions predict success in life more powerfully than test scores. They include not just resilience, growth mindset and critical thinking, but control of attention, appropriate scepticism, interoceptive awareness and learning agility. What is much less widely understood is exactly how to configure a classroom so that mastering content, getting good grades, and developing these positive learning dispositions happen naturally alongside each other.

The Learning Power Approach (LPA) has distilled the research and practice of a range of leading-edge teaching methods and can now provide the missing details. It comprises a series of small, manageable, cumulative tweaks to classroom practice that reliably boost knowledge, grades and learning dispositions at the same time. The LPA is not a quick fix or the latest fad; it is a research-led culture-change process that grows over time, as the ethos of the classroom, and the whole school, is progressively transformed.

The workshop will involve presentations by Guy, video clips of the LPA in action in a range of schools, ages and subjects, and plenty of time for participants to digest the implications of the LPA for their own practice, and make plans for whole-school development.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

All classroom teachers, middle leaders and senior leadership teams K-12 who genuinely think that education must be about more than literacy, numeracy, grades and trophies. It is helpful, where possible, to have at least two members of the same school who can sustain and transmit their LPA expertise together when they return to school.

WHAT TO BRING?

Laptop, tablet, smart phone – or good old-fashioned pen and paper. Internet access not required.
