The Work Group will explore effective ways of teaching key content to GCSE resit students and effective ways of working with teachers of post-16 resit GCSE. Participants will, through collaboration and experimentation, deepen their knowledge and understanding of the curriculum demands of GCSE Maths and their awareness of pedagogical approaches that best support students taking GCSE for the second time.
Participants’ departments will, through shared good practice, become more effective at teaching GCSE resit, for example by wider and more confident use of teaching approaches such as barmodelling, multiplicative reasoning or realistic contextualisation.
The main aims for participants in this Work Group will be to:
Improve their awareness of key concepts and themes relevant to the context of the GCSE resit.
Increase their awareness of appropriate pedagogies to help students make connections and deepen understanding.
Increase their understanding of ways of working within this sector.
