Research indicates that meaningful feedback on learning and strategies relating to metacognition are among the best high impact, low-cost approaches teachers can use to boost progress.
What has received less attention, however, is how schools can use TAs to support this valuable work.
In this session, Rob argues the case for an appropriately calibrated role for TAs in relation to providing effective feedback and supporting the development of independent learning skills.
Rob will share the actionable strategies and practical ideas in a new book – The Teaching Assistant’s Guide to Effective Interactions: How to Maximise your Practice – which can help schools grow the valuable types of talk that can have incalculable benefits for improving pupils’ relationship with learning.
