Teaching for Mastery Focused Issue Work Group:
Intervention in a Mastery Context
This Work Group is a professional development workgroup that supports schools, teachers and teaching assistants at various stages of their adoption of a mastery approach to teaching mathematics. It develops participants’ understanding of the nature and practice of mastery and it explores effective intervention strategies, linked to class lessons, that enable struggling learners both to catch up and to keep up. It does not focus on a specific intervention programme.
Over three days spread over several weeks, we look at planning and managing intervention, including diagnostic assessment to ensure there is a clear understanding of pupils' needs, strategies to develop variation and ideas to support fluency. Gap tasks are designed to enable teachers and teaching assistants to put elements explored into practice and consider their effectiveness with their own pupils and in their own classrooms.
