In 2017-2018 the Secondary Mastery Specialist will continue to open their classrooms to teachers though the Secondary Teaching for Mastery at KS3 programme. In this programme each Mastery Specialist works with teachers from the other schools in 4 open classroom sessions during the school year. In these sessions teachers will have the opportunity to observe a mastery lesson in practice, discuss this practice as a work group and also develop their understanding of one of the 5 big ideas of mastery.
In between the workshops, the lead teachers then work with their departments by delivering the same lesson in their own context and evaluating the lesson using a lesson study approach. They will also implement the idea of mastery covered in that session into one of their lessons.
As the cycle of open classroom sessions and departmental work continues, each department identifies the approaches that they wish to embed as part of their ongoing practice.
