Implementing Willingham & Christodoulou in the classroom


Having heard and read about the excellent ideas from Daniel Willingham, Daisy Christodoulou and others, how easy it is to implement them in a day-to-day classroom setting? This year I and two of my colleagues have tried to use the ideas of Willingham’s cognitive science and Christodoulou’s assessment to co-plan and deliver a Year 9 Physics curriculum. This session will be an honest account of how we have found it, what has worked and what hasn’t and what impact it has had on the students’ learning.

Across two days, over 250 sessions will take place at the Festival. A full timetable of sessions will be available from late May 2019. Until this point we will only be announcing the day(s) sessions will be taking place.
