    Three Steps to Teaching Emotional Regulation

    Emotional regulation is a huge topic but broadly we are talking about how a person learns to independently deal with the things that trigger them.  It isn’t just our ability to react and use some strategies when we are feeling a certain way but it’s also the ability to monitor and manage what’s going on in our bodies and minds throughout the day in ways that are good for us and those around us.  Emotional regulation is made more difficult because our emotions are ever-changing and they vary in intensity.  Not only this, but young people will experience a range of emotions in different situations, whilst doing different activities an d whilst in the presence of different people, which will all affect how they feel.

    Effective Differentiation – Pathway

    This pathway has three key sections:

    1. Teach to the top: Matt explores some possible dangers of traditional approaches to differentiation and advocates ‘teaching to the top’ for all pupils.  He explains what this might look like in practice, including through the adoption of a mastery learning model.
    2. Support Pupils to Accept the Challenge of Hard Work: explores the importance of lowering the threat level in our classrooms so that all pupils can accept the challenge of hard work and achieve.  He shares five strategies for engendering the growth mindset in our classrooms and explains the importance of high expectations.  He shares two practical strategies for identifying pupils’ ‘struggle zones’ so that work is pitched appropriately, and he analyses some of the most common methods of in-class differentiation. 
    3. Use Three Waves of Support to Differentiate Effectively: Matt explores three waves of differentiation and support: quality first teaching; in-class differentiation; and additional interventions.  He also examines the role of the teaching assistant in providing differentiated support to lower-performing pupils and those with SEND.   

    As well as being useful for individual CPD for teachers, this course could form the basis of in-school departmental training.
