Primary Humanities – Sustainability in the Spotlight with Humanities 20:20

Session overview:

This session will focus on sustainability education and some of the different ways it can be integrated into the existing primary curriculum.  Drawing on a mixture of theory and research, the session will feature teaching ideas and a range of practical activities. It is aimed at subject leads, mentors and teachers who are interested in sustainability education in primary schools. The role of the humanities in the current environmental crisis will be a key theme and there will be emphasis on the importance of a positive response.

Expected learning outcomes:

Participants will gain a greater understanding of:

  • What sustainability means
  • How different subjects can all contribute to sustainability education
  • The importance of the humanities to a broad and balanced approach
  • Positive approaches to teaching about environmental problems and solutions at both local and global level

Facilitator information:

  • The session be led by Dr. Stephen Scoffham, Visiting Reader in Sustainability and Education at Canterbury Christ Church University and author of the acclaimed new book Sustainability Education: A Classroom Guide.

Other contributors are:

  • Dr. Tony Eaude is an experienced independent researcher working with primary teachers and teacher educators. Previously a headteacher, Tony has published extensively, especially on young children’s learning and development and the implications for teachers.
  • Dr. Linda Whitworth is the NASBTT Subject Specialist Associate Consultant for Primary Religious Education. She is a Visiting Lecturer in Education at Middlesex University and a co-editor of Professional Reflection for the NATRE journal RE Today.

All three facilitators are members of Humanities 20:20, an organisation which focuses on the contribution Humanities subjects make to Primary education. They believe that the Humanities matter profoundly as it is primarily through them that children learn about the world and its people and become responsible citizens.

Secondary English – Building Challenging Texts into the secondary English curriculum

Session Overview:

How can trainee English teachers build challenging texts into their teaching?

Expected Learning Outcomes:

What do we mean by challenging? How can pupils be supported to access these challenging texts? How much flexibility can/should teachers have to build challenging texts into their work? What is the role of centralised schemes of work?

Facilitator Information:

Steve Willshaw – Secondary English Associate Consultant, NASBTT

Secondary Chemistry – Enhancing students’ progress by using technology in Secondary Science lessons

Session Overview:

The session will explore different ways by which technology can be used in Science lessons to enhance students’ progress. We will explore these methods individually (to be used by either the students, teacher or both during lessons) and the practicalities and nuances behind using them effectively in the classroom. Participants will also be given opportunities to share ideas with the group.

Expected Learning Outcomes:

This session will give participants the opportunity to think about their current practice and adapt it to include the use of technology in order to enhance their students’ learning and, as a consequence, their progress. By the end of the session, all participants should be able to take, at least, one strategy away and implement it in their practice.

Facilitator Information:

Jose Oliveira – Secondary Chemistry Associate Consultant, NASBTT
