    Creating and Using Sensory Stories

    Sensory stories are a hidden gem in the world of special education. These beautifully captivating stories created using concise text and rich and relevant sensory experiences can be wonderful for those who need a sensory approach to education, but more than that they can further enrich education promoting engagement for all. Consider the lessons you remember from school. Did they have sensory elements that secured them in your memory? Are there certain sensations that remind you of times and places? For me the smell of hot water bottles reminds me of my Grandma’s house. In these insights we find in our own lives the power of sensation for story telling.

    Lead on Teaching and Learning as a Subject Leader

    Above all, subject leaders are teachers and set an example by taking their own professional development seriously and by leading others on improving the quality of teaching.  They do this by focusing on four key priorities:
    1. Ensuring all the team understand the curriculum content they must teaching and how this content is best learnt
    2. Creating a supportive environment which is conducive to long-term learning
    3. Managing the classroom, including student behaviour, in order to maximise opportunities to learn
    4. Presenting curriculum content, delivering effective instruction, and providing productive learning tasks that activate their students’ working memories and make them think hard.
    This course is perfect for Subject Leaders and Heads of Department leading any discipline and is ideal for those new to the role and those just seeking their first middle leadership position. It is a practical course, anchored in the day-to-day reality of running a department and it follows a focused, logical sequence, and is full of real-life learning.
