Mark Roberts | Rethinking Boys’ Engagement @ St John's Marlborough
Jan 17 @ 3:30 pm – 5:00 pm

Mark Roberts is Assistant Principal at a mixed 11-18 comprehensive school in Devon. Before moving south, he worked for 8 years at an inner-city school for boys in Manchester.

Mark writes for the TES on subjects including pedagogy, behaviour, leadership and educational research. He also writes his own blog about teaching English. His forthcoming book, Boys Don’t Try? Rethinking Masculinity in Schools, written with Matt Pinkett, will be published by Routledge in March.

Session overview:

  • The Engagement Myth – we’ll investigate some of the most common beliefs about teaching boys and why they’re not only unhelpful but are actively damaging.
  • Expectations – teacher’s expectations of boys and girls have a significant effect on their attitudes and attainment. In this section, you’ll gain a greater understanding of how gender stereotypes influence how we deal with boys in class.
  • Relationships – Finally, we’ll consider how you can develop positive relationships with boys in lessons, with practical advice about how to manage behaviour in an effective and positive manner.

Who is this for?

All staff in Primary and Secondary schools.

Memory and How to Hack it!

This session gets to the very heart (well, the brain) of how to teach effectively.

Evidence shows that Metacognition and Self Regulated Learning approaches have consistently high levels of impact on student outcomes, with pupils making an average of 7 months’ additional progress in one academic year.

These strategies can be particularly effective for low achieving and older pupils. The potential impact of these approaches is high, but can be difficult to achieve in practice as they require pupils to take greater responsibility for their learning.

This three-session programme (21/3, 16/5, 26/6) explores how you can help your students plan, monitor and evaluate their own learning. The sessions will be led by Tom Colquhoun, Research School Lead with guest speakers from the EEF Research Schools Network.

Why take part in this programme?

  •  Develop an understanding of metacognition and self-regulated learning
  •  Receive practical tools and processes for self-review
  •  Understand how to implement the approaches and give them the best chance for success

Who might find this programme useful?

  •  T&L leaders, subject leaders, key stage leaders, senior leaders from primary, secondary & special schools
