The course is accompanied by extensive back-up material.
Useful reminder about what constitutes good teaching regarding the use of information, or any other, books. Particularly useful focus on creating excitement and enjoyment in learning through creative use of questioning.
Very enjoyable and informative. Practical ways to teach information skills. I can take these back and pass the ideas on to other staff.
I will definitely take on board your approaches to encouraging the children to use books more widely and worksheets rather less so!
Very useful in focusing our attention on such an important aspect of children's learning. Some great ideas that we can adopt. Will now work on a whole school learning strategy so we can build up their skills. An excellent session.
