Putting ‘mastery’ into practice: impact videos from the MathsHubs’ Secondary Mastery Specialists programme
In the school year 2016-17, all Maths Hubs participated in a national project to start exploring teaching for mastery approaches in secondary schools. Between two and four teachers from secondary schools in each Maths Hub took part in a programme, with three residentials over the course of the year, developmental work back at school, and ongoing communication and discussion in online communities.
In the 2017 summer term, we asked some of the teachers for some examples of what was changing at their schools as a result of their participation in the programme, both in their own classrooms, and in their work with colleagues in maths departments.
The programme is continuing into 2017-18.
