Creating an Accelerated Learning School (Hardback)

Unavailable. No reason given.


Cramlington Community High School has been officially described as 'an exciting place to learn'. The story of its pioneering work with accelerated learning is told in "Creating An Accelerated Learning School". If you have been intrigued by the possibilities of accelerated learning but have not been sure how to start to implement it; if you have yet to be persuaded that accelerated learning can be robust enough to transform learning in your school; if you want to know what objective evidence there is for the success of the approach, then this book is for you. In "Creating An Accelerated Learning School" you will read how one school took the ideas of accelerated learning and made them successful. The co-authors describe in detail the origins of their approach, from the earliest ideas, and take us through what they did to final success. The UK Schools' Inspectorate described the approach as 'bold and innovative'. "Creating An Accelerated Learning School" is packed with strategies for whole school, departmental and classroom level improvement. It is thoroughly researched and practically proven. It provides hundreds of ideas and resources.

This is the book that moves beyond theory by giving real examples of how a school has supported and embedded accelerated learning through: successfully using the learning cycle as a planning tool; providing planning time within the school week for teachers to plan and review together; using ICT to underpin the initiative; supporting staff in the classroom with 'learning coaches'; establishing a Learning to Learn course for all new students to give them the tools and skills they will need to fully engage in the learning process; producing its own training materials: handbook, planners, bulletins; careful and through recruitment and induction of new staff; and aligning planning, monitoring and performance management to focus on the learning process.
